It is one of the most effective ways to dramatically reduce the cost of your total accommodation. But are the discounts really hard to get? The answer is YES! Hotel discounts are not easily found anymore.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Luckily for you, I have done a little research and I am happy to report my own personal results on the best ways to get hotel discounts.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">How to Get Hotel Discounts</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">There are several ways to get hotel discounts and all are very easy to search. These are all "tricks" that I tried, so I can promise they have worked for me.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Hotel Discount Sites</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Hotel discount sites are special sites or pages, which offer special hotel discounts, last minute deals and limited-time hotel deals. There are usually great list of the best deals right now, and a search on Google will provide more options and deals.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">The easiest way to find this hotel discount sites is to simply Google 'hotel discount website', hotel discounts' and let Google do its work.  </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Hotel Comparison Websites</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">A hotel comparison website can be a very effective tool to get the hotel discount. In fact, it is a search engine that searches and compares room availability and prices from all major travel websites, all in one set. However you may be surprised to discover that everyone now has the same rates, so I would not rely on public engines to get a hotel discount.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Search results.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">There are many good comparison websites, but we use Hotels Etc. for reviewing the best hotel deals websites available.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Get Deals</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">You should check the additional savings you get based on your age or position in life. In many cases you can get offers for students and seniors. Make sure you ask what the limitations are and ensure to follow the rules when trying to get hotel deals.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Frequent Customer Discounts</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Many hotels have great discounts to returning customers. Once you become familiar with a particular chain and what they offer, you can make the booking right away. As loyal customers usually comes with perks. Room upgrades or longer stays are two common ways to reward loyal customers. If they have a restaurant or gift shop you could also receive discounts for purchases.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Tours</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">One of the best ways to get hotel discounts is to find a tour that could go for the same destination. If you book, you'll be able to achieve significant hotel discounts online. This comes with the disadvantage of meeting their schedule of when to travel and usually more needs to be reserved.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif=""> </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Package Deals</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">If you are traveling to a destination where you have airline tickets or rental car at your hotel, you can get a pretty number of attractions in one area, discounts when purchasing a package deal. These packages can come with some restrictions, so you need to pay attention to that, but you should be able to get a good deal on your hotel room.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Bids at the Hotel</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">The real-estate agent wants to get as much for a room as they can, but they are willing to reduce the cost for a room. You can make an offer and the broker can accept or reject your offer. A successful bid would reduce by 50% or more of the price of the hotel, but you should know what you need in bidding for a hotel room. This is one of the old school ways of getting a discount but I would not count on this method anymore.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Call the Hotel</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Many times, if you call the hotel directly and ask for a discount, the answer would be yes. The price that you find when you search online is not always the lowest rate that the hotel has. Do not be afraid to ask for a lower rate, the worst the manager can do is say no. This option may be a thing of the past because I just called the hotel and they instructed me to go online because they cannot give a discount anymore.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Hotel Alternatives</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Most people think holiday accommodation is always a hotel but if staying in the hotel is not your first choice then, there are many other options for those who are looking for something different. Some of these options can save money or time or both, some are more adventurous and some are just more practical.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">Loyalty programs</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span times="" new="" roman="" serif="">One of the most successful ways is to join a membership club, loyalty program or travel club. Closed user groups seem to be the way to go in today’s market place in order to secure a true discount.

Call the airlines  ticketing number. Most  people  don't know  this but  the airlines  run discount  air fares nearly everyday. Unfortunately they don't advertise these to the general  public  but most  of the time all it takes is a call to an airlines  ticketing service agent and asking what specials they currently have running. The best time  to do this is in the very early morning hours  to take advantage  of the daily ticketing system updates  that  happen  around midnight.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>2. Know the best times of the week and day to travel.  During peak travel  times the airlines can charge higher  prices because the demand  is there. Try to be flexible  with  your travel  times and fly during the slow times of the week and day, when the airlines  are more  willing to discount tickets  to put people  in their  cabins.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>3. Plan ahead. You can find good discounts  on cheap flights  if you make your reservations between 4 months to 2 weeks in advance. Obviously  the closer you purchase  your tickets  to your travel  date the higher  the cost. You can also apply this thinking to your travel  destination as well.  Many destination vacation  spots reduce  their  prices to attract tourists during their  off-season.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>4. Package deals can offer  great savings. Vacation packages that offer  cheap flights  or discount  air fares along with  saving on accommodations are another way to find vacation savings. One of the best places to find this type of deal is with  all inclusive  cruise packages.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>5. Shop around for the best deals. You do have to exercise  some patience when  looking for cheap air fares. Don't  whip  out  your  credit card at the first  good  deal you find.  Shop around at the different travel and airline ticketing sites to see if you can save even more  money. You do have to be careful  though because  ticket  prices can change  from  day to day. Once you better understand how  the ticketing system works  you will  find that  you'll intuitively know  when you are getting a good deal.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>CONCLUSION</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>If you are tired of paying  full price  to travel  by air then consider these 5 ways to get cheap  flights  and discount air fares as a good starting point. Once you learn the ins and outs  of finding those bargain prices on airplane tickets  you'll soon be traveling in style with extra  cash in your pocket. Also Consider staying  with friends  or family  when  you go on vacation. This ends up saving you a lot  on lodging and food, maybe  even totally eliminating these expenses.  As an added  benefit, a local host often provides better advice  about what  to do and what  to see during your visit.  Make  sure to bring your own snacks and water  bottles. Packing your  own  water and snacks prevents you from  having  to spend six dollars  on a water bottle at a theme park. Snacks make great  pick-me-ups while  on the road in between meals and you won't end up using time  or money  on drive  through fast food  restaurants or convenience stores.</span></p> text/html http://www.hotelsetc.com/blog/how-to-get-travel-discounts Hilton Hotel Savings and Discount Offers http://www.hotelsetc.com/blog/hilton-hotel-discount-offers http://www.hotelsetc.com/blog/hilton-hotel-discount-offers <p align="center" class="MsoNormal">Hilton Hotels Saving and Discount offers</p> <p class="MsoNormal">The most recognized name in the industry, Hilton Hotels &amp; Resorts stands as the stylish, forward thinking global leader of hospitality.

Wherever you may be and whatever you may do, it is important that you keep yourself in the safe zone and this is especially critical when you are traveling. Below are a few traveling tips that can help you have peace of mind while enjoying your vacation time.</p> <p class="MsoNormal"></p> <p class="MsoNormal">Make sure to book your hotel or resort way ahead of time. It is best to know all your travel itineraries, destination and lodging details in advance. If it is your first time to travel to that location or you are not familiar with the place, you may want to get detailed descriptions and instructions on how to get there. This is one way of ensuring that you will not get lost midway. Note that the important numbers that you can call in case you miss or lose your way, this is especially true if you are traveling by car. Directions are very, very important and see to it that you have the right map. Also ask about your resort's security measures beforehand. Choose a hotel that has tight security controls and regulations. Ask about the door locks or about their security personnel. It will make you feel better to know that you are in safe hands during your vacation.</p> <p class="MsoNormal"></p> <p class="MsoNormal">Since you are in a new place, you are more vulnerable to crooks that usually keep an eye on and target unsuspecting tourists. Be very wary of people who may pretend to be hotel personnel. It may very well be a felon in disguise. One thing to remember is to look at their uniforms and IDs. If you are unsure, check with the front desk. Thefts and pickpockets are quite common in hotels and tourist destinations. To fend off the former, you may want to hang around while housekeeping does their job in keeping your room clean. Otherwise, you make sure that your valuables are safely tucked and hidden out of sight; better yet you may want to take them with you. Pickpockets usually work with distractions best. Their moves may include bumping into you, asking for the time, spilling something on you or even tripping in front of you, so be wary.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">When traveling, it is advisable that you go with a buddy. This way you have someone to look out for you and vice versa. Most hotels and resorts set up parties for their guests and more often than not, you will have a drink or two. If you should get drunk and wasted, at least you will have someone to carry you back to the hotel room or even watch your back. Drunks are susceptible to theft and date rape. You would not want to be a victim of one or the other. Make sure that your companion is someone you can trust and who can support you when you get wasted. It would defeat the reason if both of you are thrashed and done in.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Stay tuned for more travel tips.</p> text/html http://www.hotelsetc.com/blog/travel-safety-guide
