Top tricks for scoring the cheapest hotel room

Fancy a holiday but can’t quite afford the hotel once you get there? Never fear, there are plenty of ways to shave the price if you know the tricks of the trade. Here are our top tips for staying somewhere on the cheap, wherever you go.

Use impartial cost comparison sites

Use a price comparison sites like Trivago when you begin your search to suss out where to stay and when. This easy shortcut could save you hundreds of pounds if you have the time to shop around.

Try your luck near the end of the day

Checking in near the end of the day could bag you an unexpected upgrade, according to savings experts at Coupons.com. The hotel will have a general sense of occupancy once the morning rush is over, so are more likely to offer you a better room in exchange for another room filled for the night.

Opt for a flight and hotel bundle

Bundling your flight and hotel into a neat package can often save you money, and it’s generally more convenient providing you’re not fussy about where you stay. Travel packages are becoming increasingly popular, so you won’t be stuck for choice.

Become a valued customer before you buy

Any business will pay more attention to engaged customers who are more likely to buy and revisit in the future. Make your intentions known to the hotel before you book by signing up to a newsletter, brochure, loyalty club, and anything else that will put you on the radar for monthly information and exclusive offers.

Check late cancellations

Browse sites like Roomer and Cancelon for last minute deals on unwanted rooms which have been cancelled at the last minute. You never know what you may find!

Simply ask         

If you don’t ask, you won’t get. Simply call or email the hotel and sweetly ask if they happen to have any deals that they can offer you. You’ll find out about general deals and upcoming offers, at the very least.
