Don't book your hotel online!

Wonder if you might get a better room if you phone up? Would make sense.

    Are you seriously suggesting The Sun isn't an upstanding honest and truthful newspaper publication?

    Yep, I can see it now. Phoning up to attempt to book a room in a language I don't speak. God knows what I'd end up with.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Since this is the UK holidays board you must be thinking of Welsh?

    Hardly surprising. Common sense really.
  • So most of the hotels do not provide good deals if you book them online! I think its not like that. Most of the businesses who have physical and online both transaction structure they do provide better deals to their online visitors as they are not tangible and can be hooked easily.
  • I mean, if they're using a service to fill their rooms, they're probably just charging more to cover the commission they're paying.
