3 Ways to Save Cash on Hotel Accommodation

If you're thinking of booking a hotel but want to save money, you've come to the right place. Making small changes to the way you book online accommodation could pay off big time, and you could save hundreds of pounds in the process. Here are some top tips on saving money when booking a hotel.

Reception1. Book off-season

Off-season depends on the country you are planning to visit but usually ranges from early autumn to late spring. Booking a holiday for this time of the year could work out cheaper than taking a trip in high-season, which usually spans the summer months. There are a number of ways you can find off-season deals. Use a hotel comparison website to compare different prices for your chosen destination with some of the biggest travel operators in the UK. Alternatively, book a hotel and your flight separately, which can sometimes work out cheaper.

2. Book a hotel outside of the city centre

If you're planning a city break, booking a hotel outside the main tourist hubs could save you money. City centre accommodation usually comes at a premium, especially if you're located close to local landmarks and points of interest. Looking for hotels over a large radius could bag you a big saving, especially if you look at areas of the city that are further away from the centre, such as the outer suburbs. Most major metropolises have extensive public transport systems which will take you from the sights to your hotel quickly, so you won't have to worry about missing out on all the action.

3. Use a voucher code

Using a voucher code is one of the top ways to save money on a hotel stay, especially if you manage to get 10 or even 20 percent off your accommodation. You might be able to find voucher codes if you check a hotel's social media accounts or if you sign up to their email list.
