Find Out Who Can Give You Lower Prices on Hotel Rooms With DoNotPay's Help
Staying at a fancy hotel is great, potentially even the highlight of a vacation. The cost you pay for a place like that, on the other hand, is often the worst part. Thankfully, you don't have to deal with that without protest, and DoNotPay can help you find out without compromising on luxury.
How to Ask for a Lower Price on Hotel Rooms On Your Own
Getting lower prices on hotel rooms can be a tricky process. If you're feeling at a loss about how to do it, asking DoNotPay to step in might be a good option for you. There's no one answer to the question of how you can do this, but there are a few strategies you can try when negotiating your bill:
|Look for Discounts||Like any other business, hotels will sometimes offer discounts or promotions that people can use to stay for cheaper. Checking out online or even just asking the person at the front desk about these can be a great way to lower your bill. It might take some time, but not doing it is just leaving money on the table.|
|Wait for Holidays||Not only do the holidays come with their promotions, but they're also a time for overbooking. When a hotel overbooks a certain kind of room, they'll often upgrade the guests who can no longer stay in that room to a better one for no extra cost. If you're looking for a little more luxury in your stay, this is the way.|
|Complaints||If something is wrong with your room, the hotel management will want to correct it. Often, this means free nights or a better room. While this should not be used as an excuse to complain about nothing and make the staff miserable, you are entitled to get what you pay for. If something is genuinely not as it should be in your room, feel free to let management know.|
|Ask||In some cases, the best option is to literally ask. While it's not a guarantee of success, asking the person at the front desk about getting a lower price on your room or waiving your fees isn't entirely without merit. Maybe they'll be kind and knock off a bit of your bill.|
The Odds of Getting a Lower Bill On Your Own
As we mentioned, there's no guarantee that you can get your bill lowered at a hotel. This makes estimating the chance it will happen a little tricky, especially when talking generally like this. In most cases, your odds will heavily depend on the hotel you're staying at, as different businesses have different policies on fee waivers, promotions, free nights, etc.
In some cases, checking around on online forums or the like can be helpful. If a certain hotel or chain has a reputation for lowering prices or offering free nights, you can find out here. As we stressed before, location is key, so finding hotels that are open to this sort of thing is a great way to raise your odds.
