5 Tips to Book Last-Minute Holiday Hotels & Flights
Sudden holiday plans are too much fun! Especially when it’s during the holiday season. But what ruins the plans and conjures up all sorts of challenges is the increased price of hotels and flights. Finding a good yet affordable hotel and flights is very difficult during the holiday season. Prices are higher than usual due to increased number of visitors.
At times, we often check for flight tickets and hotels and then cancel out plans due to unusual increase in fare or unavailability of good rooms. But I say, this shouldn’t ruin your travel plans. Therefore, here are 5 super cool tips to book last-minute holiday hotel & flights and save money!
5 Tips to Save Money on Booking Last-Minute Airline Flights and Hotel Rooms:
Most important thing to click on the ‘book now’ button is to research. I won’t suggest you to go to each and every hotel booking website and research, but it is always a good idea to go through 1 or 2 price comparison websites before booking. Like when I was traveling last week, I got a really good deal on Air Asia flight tickets on booking a round trip.
2. Pick off-beat locations:
If you haven’t a picked a place to holiday, follow this rule! It always works. For example, during winters mostly people prefer going to warm places, so you can pick hill stations instead. Visiting a tourist place during the off-season will always help you save money.
3. Seek friends’ help:
You can ask your friends to pass-on the reward points to you. Most of the people usually don’t redeem reward points. May be you can borrow some really huge number of rewards from your friends and use it to get your bookings done!
4. Prefer a business-friendly hotel:
During the holiday season, conferences and business travels slows down and many big business hotels cut down a deal to attract more tourists. Therefore, you can pick a good business hotel for your stay.
5. Package bookings:
If you book your flight tickets and hotels separately, it might cost your much more than going for a packing bookings. There are good websites which offer packages where you can combine airfare with a hotel stay. At times, you event get complimentary services like car rental, airport pick drop etc.
So these were 5 golden rules to save money when doing last-minute flight and hotel bookings. I really hope you found it useful and you will follow these 5 tips when getting your bookings done.
