We love hotels — it's part of the adventure travels and trips. But nothing spoils a vacation does not hurt to know several tricky ways.The website
shares with you little secrets of hotels to help save money and protect yourself from unforeseen situations.
The same room as you, might get someone half the price
Last unoccupied rooms the hotels are willing to sell cheaper. It is cheaper to take a room at least for some amount than not to pass at all. But hotels don't want to show these prices publicly, because there is always a chance that someone in the last moment booking a room at full price.
So the numbers are exhibited on the booking sites blind
: the prices are low, and the name of the hotel is shown only after the payment. You can only see the number of stars, type of rooms and list of services. You can only choose the area where you want to live, and the reservation cannot be canceled.Book a room after 18:00
, it's cheaper than in the morning.
When booking the room you can bargain Hotels pay the reservation system up to 30% Commission, so if you call the hotel directly you can negotiate a substantial discount
, especially if it's not network, but a small independent hotel.
There are free services
Upon arrival ask about free services that you can get. Often hotels provide free of charge water in bottles, hair irons and Curling irons for styling hair, chargers for phones, games. Also for free you can call a taxi, order concert tickets and restaurant reservations, Wake up at the right time or to call the doctor. Or even bring you a hot Breakfast in your room.
You can send to another hotel without your consent Hotels often practice overbooking — allow to reserve more rooms than are available. Ensure that all rooms are busy, even if someone cancel the reservation. It is not excluded that no number can stay with you. If you are asked to move to another hotel, you have the right to demand higher room class
or additional services, for example free tour.
The room is not always perfectly clean
Surely you are not the first guest room, so be careful in things that existed before you. Roll up and take away the cloth,
wipe with a disinfectant wipe the TV remote. Use disposable cups or keep in the room a bottle of water
: often the dishes when cleaning just rinse in the sink.
Not all rooms are the same Often when you want to choose a room, the clerk at the Desk said the duty sentence: "All rooms are the same."
Jacob Tomski, who worked for many years in the hotel business and has written a book about the secrets hotels, says: "the Room is different: beautiful view, bigger bathroom or a better TV, a corner room more spacious. No doubt, giving the clerk $ 20, you will get a better room and a bunch of different bonuses: late checkout, free movies or free Minibar".
The receptionist advises you of the institution that pays him
Do not ask the reception to recommend where to have Breakfast. He will show you the place that pays him for the recommendation, even if there expensive and tasteless. Better ask someone else or read in advance the reviews on the Internet.
Complaining is beneficial If there is reason to complain. Noisy neighbors or maintenance shortfalls may be beneficial to you. Hotels do not want to lower its rating because of the negative reviews, so we can offer additional services or discounts
. Talk politely, ask who exactly will solve the problem and call the administrator at the counter by name.
Mini safes also steal
Mini in room safe Deposit box are not insured against theft. So if you have valuables, ask the receptionist to put them in the hotel safe and to give you a receipt. This safe, as a rule, insured and available to a much smaller number of employees than your room.
