The entire world is going through a tough phase due to COVID-19, but it does not mean you will forget your happiness. Now, the situation is bad but soon, everything will get over and you will lead a normal life just like before.
Due to lockdown, you all have to stay at home, and vacations are nowhere in sight. It’s hurtful. The entire summer vacation has gone in waste as your kids neither got anything interesting to do nor were they allowed to visit any destination for a happy vacation. But, we are sure you would like to compensate all these losses as soon as the lockdown gets over and you are allowed to go everywhere without any restrictions.
So, start planning now.
The two important things that you need to plan beforehand are flight and hotel bookings. The primary reasons to book in advance are:
- To get affordable hotels and flights
- To enjoy easy availability with huge options in hand
Here, in this blog, we discuss hotel booking. You often try to get cheap hotels so that you can save a huge amount on your journey because conveyance and hotel booking consume the major portion of the travel budget. In this search and research, you often get confused between two booking platforms- hotel booking sites and hotel’s official site. It becomes difficult to select a platform for safe and affordable hotel booking.
As per recommendation, you should go for the first option that is using the service of hotel booking sites. The reasons are the following:
- Easy to compare the rates– After you enter your requirements, the booking sites will show different options. It will present the list of several hotels available for your location and in your budget along with all other requirements. With this, it will be easy for you to compare. On the hotel’s official website, you will only get the information about the particular hotel. You have to jump on different sites to compare the rates and find the cheapest deal. It will take lots of time and you might miss the chance to avail the best deal.
- Flexible in searchability- You will not have to be particular with search keywords and other details. With every search on the booking website, you are allowed to make changes and widen or narrow your search. On the other hand, search flexibility is less on the hotel’s website as they provide limited options. You do not have the facility to customize your search keywords and related details.
- Reviews and recommendations of other customers – On hotel booking sites, you will find reviews of the customer for listed hotels, if they have visited earlier. With this, you will get an idea about the hotels and their service quality. If you find positive recommendations from the customers, it will be easy for you to book the hotel with the utmost trust. On the hotel’s official website, the reviews are generally biased because no hotel management would like to post anything bad about their service. This might be harmful to you during your stay in the hotel.
Due to these positive reasons, we recommend booking affordable hotels from hotel booking sites instead of the hotel’s official site.
