The skinny on How to Get the Best Price on a Hotel Room

  1. Do your research online, using Google searches, Expedia,, Tripadvisor…etc.   But I recommend that you actually book direct with the hotel themselves by either going to their website or calling their toll free number. Even if you find a deal on Expedia, chances are the hotel will honor that deal and make the reservation directly.  Why not just book on Expedia?  It’s better to go direct because then you have full control over your reservation, easily making changes and cancellations to it as well as ensuring any requests like “quiet side of the hotel please” get noticed which can easily fall through the cracks when you book through a middle man.  Trust me, it’ll save you a lot of headaches!

We all know we need time management skills but either feel like we’ve never really achieved what we need to, or even worse, are completely intimidated by the subject. Find your examples as I have. They are all around you I promise. (more…)
