  • Tips for booking hotels?
    Also, do you book through third party sites like bookings.com or hotels.com or directly on the hotel's site? - Source: Reddit / about 20 hours ago
  • Hotels.com downgrades reward program from 10% discount to 2%
    This is a major devaluation and kills the only reason to use hotels.com. - Source: Reddit / 1 day ago
  • Hotels.com downgrades reward program from 10% discount to 2%
    Where they're able to undercut previous hotels.com pricing significantly and give out a 6% rebate some elite members may come out way ahead. But we'll have to see how real these discounts are and how widespread. - Source: Reddit / 1 day ago
  • Where to stay in New York?
    These questions are asked a lot on this sub. And I'm not trying to pass the buck, but truly, the real, best answer is: sites like hostels.com and hotels.com will be a FAR better resource than people on Reddit. Just put in your travel dates and use the price filter to find places in budget. Then you can use Google maps to get really good public transit directions from hotel to sites you want to visit. - Source: Reddit / 6 days ago
  • TopCashback
    I use it, it's often higher payout than Rakuten (which I also use). I have only had a few problems with it, for instance: Don't use hotels.com with it, they tend to not pay out and TCB won't help. I got screwed twice and quit using hotels.com altogether because it made me mad. - Source: Reddit / 8 days ago
  • Hotel pricings??
    Try hotels.com, sort by price, then go to the hotels' websites directly and see if the prices are better. - Source: Reddit / 8 days ago
  • Gd morning Denmark
    The nReddit is not the place, try looking at Airbnb, hotels.com or similar. - Source: Reddit / 9 days ago
  • 1 Day Overnight in Taipei
    What's your dad and sister's budget? While there are many hotels in Taipei and plenty of them will be English friendly but the ones with truly English fluent staff will be pricey, hotels near Taipei 101 can also be expected to be expensive. Take note that weekend rate (Friday and Saturday nights) is usually double that of weekday's, also, make reservation well in advance especially if the night falls on weekend. I... - Source: Reddit / 13 days ago
  • Cheap hotels in London?
    If your budget is for your entire group, I also recommend checking booking.com or hotels.com and plugging in your parameters. - Source: Reddit / 12 days ago
  • Cheap hotels in London?
    You're talking per person, right? If so, there are plenty of apartment-style places available under 200 GBP a night. Just check booking.com or hotels.com and sort by price. Airbnb also has plenty of listings for places that sleep four or five people for well under 500 GBP a night. - Source: Reddit / 12 days ago
  • Ah yes
    The way hotels.com stamps work is you get one stamp per night, so you actually wouldn't get more lol. - Source: Reddit / 12 days ago
  • Did you offer a hotel block?
    With increased options and more pricing visibility, hotel blocks aren't nearly as common as they once were. I can just go to hotels.com or any other similar website or use airbnb to find the accomodations I want. I don't have to call the hotel to book a room or anything. - Source: Reddit / 15 days ago
  • Has anyone successfully gotten a refund from hotels.com on a non refundable booking?
    I've used hotels.com exactly one time several years ago. The hotel didn't have the room I booked and put me in another room. I reserved a non-smoking room and paid extra for it. The smoking room they gave me literally had haze in the air. It was terrible and there was no way I could stay there. Of course the hotel didn't care at all and hotels.com said that I'd have to take any room available. No refunds - not... - Source: Reddit / 16 days ago
  • Travel agents — worth it?
    Where I find travel agents helpful is if you have a complicated itinerary with lots of hotels and connecting transportation and local activities that they can arrange for you. It needs to be someone with some expertise in the specific area, not someone who is just generically a travel agent, so that they can hook you up with good guides, find you smaller hotels that aren't necessarily on hotels.com, etc. - Source: Reddit / 15 days ago
  • Help me choose hotel for my grandparents
    What do you mean "unless you are a guest"? Like a member or something? Do you mean if a website like hotels.com lets me book at Intercontinental or Oakwood, when I get there, my reservation might not be honored? - Source: Reddit / 16 days ago
  • WA Premier flags more Airbnb regulations
    Airbnb and Uber are not Aggregators per se. Aggregators merely compile a list of matching services - like Wotif, hotels.com, Expedia etc. - Source: Reddit / 16 days ago
  • Is a Merlin Pass worth it?
    It is probably going to cost about 2k ish to do all of the above including accommodatiion (got 3 free nightrs with hotels.com) and petrol and eating out but my kids would probably enjoy that more than a 2k holiday in the UK or abroad. I am aware that 2k buys very little holiday these days. - Source: Reddit / 18 days ago
  • I might get in trouble if my domain name has a trademark on it?
    Domain trademark is a little unclear. Generally the domain itself cannot be trademarked, unless it's part of your business name/slogan and is used in the identification of your goods/services (Example hotels.com, the .com portion is critical to the identification of the website). - Source: Reddit / 19 days ago
  • affordable hotels in nyc
    And this is the main point. Do you think that there are "secret" hotels that websites like hotels.com, trivago.com, hostelworld.com, etc. Are hiding from you, and that locals will know about those secrets? It's not 100% impossible, but it seems very unlikely. Those hotel/hostel websites will have WAY more information that people on Reddit will. - Source: Reddit / 20 days ago
  • Any good, clean, cheap hotel in central London? Since when are Premier Inns £200 a night?!
    That's okay! It just seems that's the prices now, I think I'll just try my luck with something a bit cheaper on booking.com or hotels.com. The Hub was a good reliable place while it lasted, we would be sorted for around £130, £150 for 2 nights before Covid! - Source: Reddit / 19 days ago
  • Lesser Known Credit Cards You Love
    With AR you only get 4.5% if you directly book with airlines or the hotel. Especially with hotels unless you always book name brand, you loose on free nights provides by hotels.com or 10-20% discount provided by bookings.com. - Source: Reddit / 21 days ago
