When I have chosen my hotel, I still check the price on the hotel’s website and on a competitor website. Sometimes you do get a small difference, a promotion or complementary things.
Great to hear, I will definitely be using them then.
Don't be alarmed if you sometimes book a place and you opt to pay at the hotel upon arrival, and then a small amount goes off your CC. They(Hotels) do that to check for valid cards and will refund it within a day or 3. Just their checks and balances.
I think that was my concern, because I read somewhere someone complaining about just this. I do not have a problem with this, but it would be great if I could pay online upon booking and get it over and done with. I just don't want to pitch up in New York to find that there was no reservation made for me.
How about trivago. I have no experience with them but it is my favourite advert on t.v.
Nah, go there and pay at the hotel. That gives you up to 24 hours before to still change your mind and book somewhere else. I have done that countless times. You book now for best price and location, but 2 days before you are scheduled to book in, you do another search and now some other hotel, that was too expensive before, is now so discounted that you change your booking. Nobody gets pissed off by this.
If you book often enough on Booking.com, you start getting discounted rates. It is called Genius, and some good deals then. Some hotels will say that you have to pay before, or you get extra discount if you do, but I have waived that on most occasions. Anyway, I have never arrived at a hotel and then they don't have a clue about my booking. I have used them in the USA, Russia, SA, Germany, Belguim and Italy. Top notch service every time.
