    No mention of the Tesco clubcard hotels.com catch that could cost you more, research this and update the guide asap.

    Just scanned through and can't see any mention of Sunday night discounted rates for UK and European city hotels. For business class hotels, Tuesday is often the most highly booked and most expensive night of the week, whilst Sunday is the cheapest.

    Hi, just booked through Hotwire.com in London. I accepted an additional £35 fee on top of the booking as it seemed a good deal, and had a pool, which I know the children would love. I found out after I had paid that I will have to pay an extra £10 per day to use the pool!! As you Soon as you pay, you are committed, no get out. Would never use them again, as feel very misled. No mention of pool fees in description, and as it was a 'secret' hotel, I couldn't check the hotel first. On looking on the hotel site afterwards, I only save £30! (Not 50% as advertised). Feel like this is a big con, not a way to get better deals, but to tie you into rubbish ones!

    The guide warns you explicitly about Hotwire and their hidden charges.

    So are you trying to set a forum record for a derail/hijack, or are you just blindly and impotently thrashing about without any concept of what and where you are posting?

    No wonder Hotwire took you for a sucker.

    eta - your first post found the appropriate thread, so this one is just spam!
