Of course someday we will make a trip, or precisely we can’t hide to avoid – in example – business trips, family visitation, or just scheduled vacation. Those need Hotels, even you have planned to get low budget trip. We can’t just sleep with tent in the open air nor bothering our colleague and families to stay there. The problem is how to find proper Hotels with rational prize and sufficient facilities due to your need. Here the tips to find such hotel.
First, define where and when you will go to. It is close related with which hotel where you will stay and which rate you want to choose. Then, ask friends for their opinion and recommendations and/or look for it through the internet. There are so many websites which provide travel information including Hotels. Check the rates: budget, moderate, or high cost. Check the star level.
This standard of facilities and service will guide you to choose what kind of its standard you want to experience. Then, check the theme of the Hotels. Sometimes, travelers forget this last part. A 3 star hotel for business trip is different enough compared with a 3 star hotel for family holidays. Never fail to meet your need and provided budget with what you will receive by search and check the Hotels.
After you finished doing previous “basic steps”, you have to look for the promotions or vouchers offered by Hotels. Sometimes these special offers are not announced loudly or well informed by travel agencies, so it will be better to ask the receptionists. They will give you such information. Pay attention to the special clubs discount. Check if you are a member of some club or organization (such as AAA, dinner club, professional club, etc) and fortunately able to receive discount.
The next step is bargaining. Ask and ask to the receptionist about the lower price with same facilities and amenities. Or, you can do this in with your travel agent. The agencies sometimes get special discounts which are not able for personal guest. If you can negotiate it, you can get lower room rate with same standard. But, anyway, you should ensure about additional cost (like parking, food, tips, etc) and taxes.
It will be easy if you have a scheduled trip like periodic vacation or visitation. In fact, sometimes we need to go anywhere tomorrow morning, and we have no idea about that (imagine your boss ordered you something like that 5 minutes ago). In this case, you need to prepare to the possibilities. The great suggestion is collecting the information piece by piece and pay attention about the Hotels which sometimes appear in your friends’ chatting. You never know when you need such information.
