With the scorching summer heat now at its peak, hotel bookings are increasing along with the various summer escapades leisure brands are offering. More people are searching for—and grabbing—the best deals, and while out-of-town summer outings are usually preferred by Filipino families, staycations are increasingly becoming a popular option.
Today, online booking sites and apps offer users a more convenient way to find their ideal hotels. Because of the current high demand among local and foreign travelers alike, however, securing the best deals can be a challenge.
Since establishing its footing in the Philippines in 2018, OYO, South Asia’s largest tech-driven hotel chain, has been providing travelers with great experience through affordable yet quality accommodation. Here are a few tips and reminders to score the best hotel deals:
Create a list of options and set a budget
A vacation experience depends to a certain extent on the accommodation and one’s budget. No one wants to reach their bucket-list destination only to find out they have an insanely priced accommodation or have booked a place far from being the most ideal hotel.
Contact the hotel and check on hidden charges
Avoid unwanted surprises at your destination by getting more information about what to expect. Before hitting the book button, contact the hotel directly and discuss the details posted online. Some hotels include only the base accommodation cost on their online quote and then add additional fees upon check-out. Contacting the hotel directly would be the best way to avoid hidden charges. Doing so also allows direct negotiation with the hotel staff to customize the booking to your requirements.
Get notified through an app
Browsing sites one by one to check what they offer can be time-consuming. The best way to secure a good deal is to get immediate notifications from a site or an app. This saves you from the long and hassling process of looking up hotels by getting the job done faster while notching you bigger discounts.
