Before you go to booking.com or any other accommodation website to book an apartment in Brisbane, stop and ask yourself am I getting the best deal? Nine times out of ten the answer is no. While these accommodation sites presumably offer the best deals, there are ways you can get a better deal on your apartment. Simply follow these simple tips below next time you go to book an apartment in Brisbane to see how much you save, you may be surprised with the savings!
1. Compare prices online
The internet is often the first port of call for anyone booking an apartment these days, but be sure to visit at least three accommodation websites to compare prices on the same hotel. Often the prices will vary.
2. Don’t book through third party websites
Having found a good deal on an accommodation website, call the apartment direct and ask for a better deal. These websites often add 15% commission so by calling the hotel direct and asking for a 10% discount the apartment is still in front.
3. Ask directly for a lower rate
By calling the apartment direct, not only can you ask for a lower rate but you can also enquire about any promotions that are offered only to direct bookings.
4. Be flexible with your travel dates
While it’s convenient to travel during holiday periods, it is also the most expensive time to travel. Consider changing your travel dates to an off-peak season to take advantage of off-peak rates.
5. Check for hidden costs
Brisbane apartments often come with hidden costs such as Wi-Fi, parking and fees to use resort facilities such as laundry, spas etc. Before booking your apartment of choice, look at the fine print to see what is included in the rate.
