Tips on Getting Discounts in Private Hotels

If you are thinking about your next tour during vacation or vesting your client’s office during a business trip, a pre-planning can turn out to be a money-saving process. Even if you are going to a nearby country for a quick and easy getaway or somewhere more exotic tourist place, you are able to save some bucks on your stay and spend those on the trip activities.

Hotels which offer accommodation at regularly discounted prices are not hard to find if you are aware of where to look. Be it a motel, a reasonable hotel or a luxurious hotel, you are eligible to get discounts which are commonly offered by several accommodations. In this blog, I will be discussing the facts that would be helpful in getting private hotel discounts and you can be assured that you won’t need to pay the full price for staying in any hotel.

Discount coupons

Discount coupons are the best way to get some dollars off your bill for the stay. You can often spot such coupons in magazines, newspapers, entertainment directories or hotel books obtained during entering a hotel. Simply, cut and tear them off the pages and show them during check-in.

Get help from the internet as it is the richest source to get coupon codes. There are several coupon websites which you can search according to your destination or desired hotel to get the coupon codes. These codes can be used while you book any hotel online by filling these codes in the mentioned slot and confirm the booking.

Well, you’d need to be careful about the clarity of the printed coupons and your situation should be matched with some certain requirements (terms and conditions) before you can finally use the coupon.

On the edge deals

Sometimes, we make plans at the last minute, and at that point, if we try to book hotel chances are that you may get the privilege of getting last minute discounts from some hotels which are having fewer vacancies during that particular time of your stay. This happens at times because hotels might be courageous to have guests in order to fill the pending unoccupied rooms, especially during that travel seasons when there are not many tourists.

If you’re also one of those who are flexible with their travel schedules and are comfortable to travel during the months when hotels are likely to be booked averagely, then booking at the last minute would be recommended.

Off –track location

Some hotels which are situated a little away from the main city or tourist attractions offer better discount options. One can consider such hotels, all you may need to do is to walk a little more or use a public transport, but the discount from accommodation would surely save you enough money.

Never hesitate to ask for a discount at the hotel before check-in or ask for it over the phone before booking a hotel. It is possible they may offer special discounts in association with on-going events, concerts or festivals.

How corporate hotel discounts save money in work tours?

Corporate hotel discounts are helpful for working professionals traveling to various locations for business gatherings. Most travelers working for large corporations enjoy extremely discounted rates at the largest hotel chain around the globe. The hotel discounts offered to the corporate travelers provides discounts for the hotel stays. The discount on hotels depends on the chain, the specific property, the period of the year and the contract with the corporation. People traveling for work understand the importance of booking hotels for the stays and their significance.

A lot of time goes begging in searching for appropriate hotels and book a room in the best location. Corporate hotel discounts helps manage the expenses considering the personal preferences. At times only having access to the corporate contract at a hotel chain is not enough to have access to discounted rates at high-rated hotels. You need to contact a corporate hotel booking professional for getting the best deals. The benefits of corporate rates over other types of promotions have to do with the cancellation policy. You might be left with advance payment rates if you are not entitled to a corporate rate.

How to get the best corporate hotel rates?

Small business owners always consider that corporate discounts are for large businesses, but that is not the scenario in most cases. These tickets can be availed by different businesses at any point of time. While large companies may receive a better discount nationally due to volume, many hotels will offer business clients a corporate rate for frequent stays.

Some generic tips for receiving corporate discount on hotel rooms –

1.Make reservation using the helpline number. Call any hotel helpline number to talk with the hotel staff working onsite. You will get the best assistance for your corporate business stay.

2.Request a corporate rate from different mediums. Are you doing business with local companies? Ask if the company has a corporate rate for use while doing business with a local company.

3.Request for the unofficial corporate rate. Are you traveling to the same hotel most often? It may be as simple as asking the hotel managers for a corporate hotel rate.

4.Avoid approach to a busy check-in desk. Make your bookings from a less busy source or medium.

Large corporations are good at negotiating fantastic corporate rates that are mainly chain-wide and it will also provide certain level of discount. The level of discount may vary from property to property. Large corporations have contracts in place push all their employees, suppliers, contractors and consultants to use. The corporate discounts or codes are used by employees for personal trips and vacation.

For hotel chains, providing deep discounts to corporations allow the hotel chain to have higher occupancy rates and in return they have large amount of people who use the hotel website applying to corporate code in the reservation search form. Corporate hotel discounts make your stay in the hotel in the most desirable way within the least price.

7 Tips for couples before travelling

In a life that is dictated by routines, vacations and travelling is a thing that helps keep us sane. The idea of taking annual leaves regularly makes a lot of sense. The last thing any of us want, on his or her travel, is a non-compatible travel partner. If you are on your own, traveling with a friend or looking for a travel companion, a few tips might help you from having a trip to hell. Here are seven tips for traveling as a couple:

• Decide upfront why you are going and what you want to get out of the trip.

• Money has the potential of destroying the best of friendships, let alone create problems if your travel companion is a mere acquaintance. Its best to decide what, where, and how much you will be spending on mutual expenses. Be sure to look for good travel discounts

• Prepare a tentative itinerary; places you want to visit, things to do and time to be spent at each location.

• Travelling with some one has benefits, but even then, you should get sometime to yourself. Make allowance for time that each will be spending on their own.

• Every one enjoys different aspects of travel. It’s good to figure out each others preferences before getting stuck together on a rather costly trip. Some of us are night people while others can’t keep their eyes open after dark. Some like everything decided and planned, others are more spontaneous. Some like to indulge in the culture while others prefer to immerse in the sights only. Make sure you and your companion share some views, if not all, regarding travelling.

• Unless you are a 100% sure about the person you are travelling with, pack some earplugs, they can be a life line during an otherwise sleepless night.

• Have an open mind & a generous heart. Give the other person some space & make the most of your solo time as well. Have fun and keep it enjoyable for both.
