No, we don’t mean that your home’s been burgled, we’re talking about the money that you spent on that vacation. Now, we don’t want to spoil that experience that you’ve just had, but we would like you to ensure that you don’t make the same mistake twice.

We couldn’t be louder when screaming this out because here’s a list of issues that you can avoid when you simply compare holiday prices.

Away on Vacation - hotel booking
Hotel Booking Online

Book Rooms through a Hotel

Time and again, we go to our favourite hotels’ website and book the room we want. Isn’t that convenient? One-stop shop and you’ve got everything you’ll ever need for your room. The hotel arranges for the transfers and you can rent your car right there too. Who needs anything else, right?

Ah! Now, that’s where you’re making a mistake because not only do hotels have special offers running from time-to-time, they don’t even display all their offers on their website.

If you have two or three hotels in mind, then you won’t find the best deals on their website. Compare your prices before making any booking decisions

So, you’ve had a good experience before and now, he’s that “guy” you’ve got who handles your travel details. We understand you’re comfortable but the problem is, they get comfortable too. Once you’ve got your “guy” on “comfort-mode”, you can guarantee that he’ll let the best deals slip by, knowing that you trust him blindly.
