With flights changing right and left without warning, as well as the last minute flight deals on the rise, the hotel businesses are seeing a peak of sales as they open their rooms and reservations for low prices. Make sure your reservations and bookings are secured and through reputable companies and you can ensure a great price and experience.
You may find that when you do arrive to the hotel, it is actually vacant and not as full as the hotel implied. Take note of this. It is either because the hotel is over-priced and charging customers too much, or perhaps it’s because the hotel is a lower quality than they expected.
To be sure you are not scammed, make sure you check to see if the hotel you are getting the deal on is vacant or nearly booked. If you find its not, maybe you should reconsider.
Even if you do find a reputable hotel and deal, do not be surprised if you find yourself in that one hotel room nobody wanted. Perhaps it is the one with the terrible view, the smelly carpet, or the one with a leaky faucet. While this isn’t the worst thing that can happen, it is a possibility.
Also consider the possibility that with a cheaper hotel, you may lose location. Prepare yourself for the possibility of the fact that some cheaper hotels are a lot further from attractions than others.
With this said, you may have to pay more for transportation to get to the attractions and happenings since the hotel may or may not be further away from everything.
Lastly, before booking anything, see if you can book a flight and hotel for a greater discount than just the flight or just the hotel. Sometimes agencies offer discounts for both.
Keep in mind however, that in snatching these deals, you may have to snatch inconvenient flight times or lower ranked hotels.
