The internet is wonderful. It gives us access to a tremendous amount of information. Whether you’re planning a trip, event, or vacation, the internet is a great resource for learning about new areas to visit or activities to take part in. It is also a great place to find and review hotels in the area you’re visiting. But does it make sense to book online?
As we all know, the number of online travel agents have multiplied over the past view years—Expedia, booking.com, Trivago, etc. They are all competing for your dollars to book “at the lowest rate.” The temptation to book online is tremendous—who doesn’t want a deal? But did you know: 1) not all available hotel rooms are listed on their websites; 2) most hotels will gladly match any online price (we certainly do); and 3) you must pay a booking fee to get a reservation. So, book direct and get the real bargain.
