Finding discount hotels and hotel deals is easy. Hotel reservation systems that offer hotel discounts are everywhere. Most hotel reservation systems have a Rate or Price Guarantee but are they worthwhile? Read them and find out. Most say something like "... reservation cannot be for one of our non-discounted hotel properties" , "... lower rate must be available for booking with identical specifications of the original request (ex: same hotel, same date and same room type), "Rate guarantee does not apply to all dates including certain holidays and major events" and "... you must contact us within 24 hours of booking your prepaid hotel reservations". Are guarantees for hotel reservations any good? You'll have to decide for yourself. Although some guarantees are better than others, if finding the absolute best hotel deal is important to you than checking rates at numerous hotel reservation systems and hotel web sites is necessary. How you value your time is up to you.
