PostHeaderIcon How to book the hotel?

August 9th, 2013 Author: yurisolo

It is no secret that there are many hotel reservation systems: large and small, global or specialize in specific regions. How in all this variety to make quick choice of the most suitable hotel?

You must begin with the so-called aggregators, such as An aggregator asks multiple reservation systems, then you can easily choose the most appropriate level, location and price of the hotel and go directly to the booking system website for the implementation of thereof. Try this:

Not so long ago, the largest reservation system has ceased cooperation with hotelscombined, so it is necessary also look for hotels here:

TRICK! Take the time to check the site of chosen hotel directly. Unlikely, but possible, that the price on it will be lower.

IMPORTANT! Carefully read the cancellation policy! Most often, cancellation one day before the date of arrival is free, but there are other options: free cancellation for more days, cancellation with a penalty in the amount of the first night, etc. There are also fully prepaid tariffs, and if your trip falls through for any reason, the money for the hotel will not come back. Choose, based on the difference in price between tariffs and confidence in the implementation of the upcoming trip.

Usually, these two websites are sufficient to find suitable accommodation. About the more complex cases I will write separately somehow.
