Cheap Hotel Rooms

How To Get

The Cheapest Hotel Rooms

When you get off the bus in the Andean Mountain resort town of Banos, Ecuador, you’ll see several people quickly moving towards you. Some of them will be the actual owners of the hotels in town, and others are working on commission. They’ll all claim to have the nicest and the cheapest hotel.

This onslaught of salesmen may annoy you at first, until you realize what it means. There are vacant rooms tonight, and there is real competition! They have tipped their hands, and you are in charge now. Let the contest begin!

When my wife and I were in Banos recently, we let an older woman drag us off from the bus station. She showed us two hotels she owned, and we preferred the second. We were told the room would be $12. It was clean, with cable T.V. and lots of hot water. We offered $6 per night, paying for four nights in advance. She agreed.

The lesson is clear if you want the cheapest hotel room: Negotiate! The owner knew we were ready to walk away, and that there were others waiting for our business. Unfortunately, most owners here in the U.S. would rather let you drive away than knock five bucks off the room rate. Even here, however, we have negotiated decent discounts by paying for several nights in advance. Of course we let them know that we’ll be looking elsewhere if they say no.

The Cheapest Hotel Rooms – More Tips

You can use the travel web sites to find cheap hotel rooms, but remember that they only give you rates for the hotels and motels that are in their system. I just did a search for Tucson, Arizona, for example, on several sites. One or two of the sites found decent prices on certain hotels, but I know of several nice motels in Tucson that are $15 cheaper than the cheapest rate they found. Use the internet as a place to start, or when you can’t get any other information.

Get coupon books at gas stations along the highways. We’ve often found good deals using these, and it’s rare that a manager won’t honor them. Usually only if they’re absolutely full will they refuse. Read the fine print, however, because they often charge more for certain dates, or for two people.

There are promotions done where if you “mention this ad” or just use the right words, you get up to 70% discount. Talk, talk, talk. Tell them if you’re a member of the AARP, AAA or whatever. Tell the person on the phone that you saw an ad in the “Times,” or whatever big paper they might have advertised in.

Get the receptionist to help you. Try asking what the magic words are. Some receptionists will tell you. You might also ask “What do I have to say to get the cheapest rate?” They will sometimes tell you, or suggest other options. Ask about the hotel too, of course. You don’t want ANY room. You want the cheapest hotel that has nice rooms.

Make sure that you make Cheap vacations packages.

Testimony from a friend named Jeffry Ondang, who just finished the cheap vacation to Malaysia and the Philippines. We can read the testimony, he read the following tips especially for those who want to visit Kuala Lumpur in the future (cheap transportation tips to Batu Caves & SunWay Lagoon).

I’m not the first time this traveling abroad, I had previous to Hong Kong, China (even if only to Shenzhen), Singapore, Malaysia, and Bangkok. But all that has been arranged by the family and stay at the hotel. Also, if any to most taxi ride. Thus, the costs incurred are also big enough, although we also often got my own way without joining tour.
But since I read the e-book written by Travel Hemat Agung Basuki (which I found by accident when surfing on the internet), I feel I must to do the trip this time to foreign as cheap as possible. I want to live in a cheap hostel and increased vehicle travel if that is not a public taxi.

But since I read the e-book written by TravelHemat Agung Basuki (which I found when surfing on the internet), I am enthusiasm to do the trip this time to foreign as cheap as possible. I want to live in a cheap hostel and increased vehicle travel if that is not a public taxi.

I was trying something new and a little difficult to make the result more depth than all the all-round easy. Time in Kuala Lumpur on 11 May 2009, I tried all the public there, from the SkyBus, Commuting, LRT, MRT, and others. I can have a cheap travel, and this means, I can make shopping more for my family.
In the beginning I was not make sure that I could do that solo traveling, plus the number of negative stories I hear and read. But once again, buying e-book in http://travelhemat.com not only buy the product, but at the same time can be consulted about the plan’s FREE on our journey by Agung Basuki.

Agung also gave me the encouragement to keep me to cheap vacation, especially to the Philippines (where many people say that the situation is less secure, a lot of action crime, frequent storms, and others). Fortunately when I have in there, the situation was good, nothing to make me afraid). Of course all of that we follow the suggestions given.
Thank you to the top of the guide from the ebooks by Agung Basuki even now … I even avid traveling sparingly, and is planning a similar trip in January 2010, where the route to Denpasar, Kuala Lumpur – Manila – Kuala Lumpur – Singapore – Kuala Lumpur – Denpasar, I just pay the ticket price of only Rp 1,100,000 with AirAsia ride. The cheap vacations I have got.
