Are you planning a trip that will require you and your family to stay in a hotel? If the answer is yes, then here are three websites you need to know about if you want to save money on accommodations during your upcoming family vacation. Take a look:
Tingo: Sure, we all book hotel rooms ahead of time to make sure we get a room at our hotel of choice, but how many go back to re-check the room rates before checking in? Probably very few. That’s where Tingo comes in. Book your hotel room on Tingo, and if the price drops, they automatically re-book your same reservation for you for free. Does it get any better than that?
Room77: I was introduced to Room77 a few months ago and have quickly become a big fan. Simply search for a hotel room, and Room77 will share with you room rates at hotel booking sites across the web, including Orbitz, Expedia and Hotels.com. You can see in a flash which site has the best price, and sometimes Room77 has availability when other sites show certain hotels as sold out.
BackBid: This site is still relatively new but the concept is that you enter an existing hotel reservation and travel preferences, then wait for the magic to happen. Area hotels can see who is coming to their destinations and offer enticements, like discounts, upgraded rooms or free breakfast, to encourage travelers to abandon current reservations and book with them instead.
Do you have any favorite websites or mobile apps you use to book hotel rooms? Let me know in the comments section below.
