Do you know great hotel deals are easily accessible online? What i find most interesting when on search, is that with just one click so many options are available to choose .
You tend to make the best decison when you have options!
Walk-in travel agencies are still pretty much around to get bookings reserved. However, with the advance in technology, a lot of travel companies are now online with various products/services.
Its not complicated to do it yourself(DIY)
These are some awesome tips to book hotels online yourself
Have a budget
Yes of course! its only practical to have a budget to guide your search. Online search for hotels can be really exhausting, with just a click of a button, so many offers stare right in your face. Without a budget, you might end up spending so much time online than necessary to book a hotel.
This pretty much goes hand-in-hand with cost budget. Normally, hotel rating start from 5,4,3 and 2 star. The higher the star, the more luxurious and pricey. I often work with these websites for hotels https://booking.com and https://www.expedia.com/. They give detailed description of hotels and pictures are 99.9% real.
On booking.com, you are able to pay in Naira (NGN) using debit cards
I would advise to look out for hotels that are close to areas of business, leisure or destination. Mostly when you are visiting a city for the first time,it saves cost on transportation also convenience. Most hotel websites will state places of interest, distance, attraction etc against each offer. Take time to read these information before you close out.
Regardless of star* rating, most hotels offer free WiFi, airport shuttle,bed and breakfast. Personally, i always opt for hotels that come with basic amenities and they are available even in some 2 star*. Website for online hotel bookings run on several pages,don’t be in a rush, take your time.
Always click the buttons below each page to navigate from page to page
Book less stay
Personally, i like to book first few days in one hotel than the complete duration. Do you know why? i want to be able to move hotels just in case i do not like the SSS (service, safety and security) as most hotels are non-refundable.
Safe and Secure
Lastly, ensure the site you choose to book on is safe and secure. Remember to look up for the padlock sign before you put in card information.
I told you,is not that complicated to do it yourself (DIY)
