With the beginning of the new year, many have already started to organize their Easter and summer vacations . Are you one of them? Well, you better be very attentive to what we tell you below, especially if your financial situation is not as bollante as you would like. And the thing is that today we are going to give you some tips so that you can go on a trip more economically.
Many people insist on looking for the best deal on flights and do not give much importance to accommodation. However, it is useless if we manage to fly economically if we pay a lot for accommodation afterwards. Thus, the key to traveling cheap is not only finding the cheapest tickets, but also finding the best hotel deals. So, today at Vuela Viajes we are going to offer you some interesting tips for booking cheap hotels. Would you like to join us?
Avoid peak season
One of the keys to booking cheap hotels is not to travel in high season. Therefore, if you are lucky enough to be able to choose your travel dates, we recommend avoiding busy days. Thus, the more flexible you are, the more likely you are to find lower prices. If you want to make a getaway, the best thing is to run away from the bridges and other specific dates. In summer it will be more difficult to find cheap hotels, but you should know that June and September are the best dates to save. In addition, you should know that during these months the destinations are not so crowded and the weather continues to be good.
Beware of local festivals
On the other hand, before booking a hotel, we recommend that you investigate if the destination in question celebrates a local or national festival that you are not familiar with. If so, the hotels are most likely more expensive. Logically, if the purpose of your trip is to enjoy precisely this festival (for example, the Seville April Fair), you will not be able to do anything about it, but if you want to visit the destination, we recommend traveling on other dates.
On the other hand, we want to recommend that you do not search for “cheap hotels” on Google, since the usual big online agencies will appear. What will really be useful for you is to choose several hotels and compare the same hotels on the same dates between several websites. In this way, you will be able to know who offers the cheapest prices. Of course, you should know that, sometimes, the price of the comparators is higher than what can be achieved by contacting the hotel directly. In addition, it is important that you bear in mind that on some pages the prices tend to rise if you consult in a withdrawn way, since when they are aware of your interest, the prices are inflated . To fix it, all you have to do is delete the cookies, although this trick does not always work.
We also want to recommend that you book early. In fact, according to some studies, the ideal is to book between 3 and 5 months before the trip, although in some areas the savings are not very noticeable. This is the case in the United States, where prices remain fairly stable . Of course, you should know that some agencies put their last rooms on sale at a lower price than usual. It is a risky option, but if you are not clear about the destination to go to, it is not such a crazy idea.
Be careful with the bargains
You may find a bargain, but most of the bargains you can find on the net have a trap . For example, it is possible that the hotel is too far from the points of interest and that, in the end, the cheap thing ends up being expensive both for the time you have to invest in the transfers and for the money that the transport costs. Thus, we recommend that you investigate whether it is worth staying outside the center.
