Frequently Asked Questions about hotels

What's the cheapest hotel booking site?

We've run the numbers comparing major booking sites and found that most often Trip.com finds the cheapest hotel prices. Agoda wasn't far behind, coming in at second.

You can compare cheap accommodation across multiple booking sites at once for yourself right here.

Which sites let me use a coupon code to book accommodation?

Using one of our coupon codes at these sites will save you money on your stay. Some may ask you to pay for your stay upfront rather than on arrival in order to apply the code to your booking, but the same cancellation policy does apply so if you are able to cancel, you'll be able to get refunded.

What's the cheapest night to stay in a hotel?

In busy city centres, the weekends are often cheapest as the prices are high during the week when people are travelling for business. It's often the opposite in holiday destinations where weekdays are cheaper because most people are holidaying at the weekend.

Hotel rates can change quickly depending on supply and demand. If there's an event in town, then the prices are likely to go up to meet the demand. You might get a feel for which night is cheapest if you compare hotel prices ahead of time. It's also advisable to stay flexible with your travel dates and avoid busy school holiday periods if you can.

Is it better to book directly with the hotel?

Sometimes. Research is always important when you're looking to save money. If you've done your due diligence, looked at hotel deals and found something you like, stop before you book. Stop, and take a look at what the hotel is offering directly on its website, go the extra mile and compare what its competitors are offering.

They may offer a lower price or extra inclusion or have a guarantee to match a lower price. It's simply a matter of checking.

We know of 13 sites that have price match guarantees including Expedia and Wotif.

Can you negotiate hotel room prices?

Yes. If you've done your research there's every chance you can get a better hotel deal armed with that knowledge. It's a matter of picking up the phone (rather than emailing) and asking. It never hurts to ask, the worst thing they can do is say no.

You might leverage finding a competitor's lower prices or brand loyalty if you're a member. Often hotels are more than happy to match prices, some even have a best price guarantee as mentioned earlier.

Do hotel prices go down last minute?

Yes. There's nothing worse for a hotel than empty rooms at the end of the night, so often they'll discount their rooms in hopes of filling them up. Sites like Lastminute.com.au and hoteltonight.com have sprung up to help you take advantage of these kinds of hotel deals.

If you're travelling spontaneously you can even try visiting a hotel on the day you arrive and ask them if they've got spaces available. You just might score a great room for a bargain.

Is it better to book a hotel in advance or last minute?

In a comparison of 10 hotels, we found 6 had their cheapest dates in the next week while 4 had their cheapest prices up to 2 months away.

This suggests you can find the best deal either by booking a week out or a couple of months in advance. Remember that when booking last minute you risk missing out on your preferred location.

Extra time and research are an advantage. Some hotels might even offer early-bird discounts. They might not be as cheap as a last-minute deal, but it's a good compromise for peace of mind.

Having trouble choosing between two hotels? We've analysed popular hotel chains for perks like free breakfasts, complimentary Wi-Fi and loyalty programs where you can earn points toward free stays.

We've pinned some of the world's largest hotel chains against one another. We compare everything from the breadth of locations to Wi-Fi access to loyalty programs.
