They also rebate back a portion of what I spend and I can save that up and use it to help pay the cost of my next hotel stay. They are HOTEL BOOKING DISCOUNTERS ONLY and partner up with many other discounters for everything from flights to car rentals.  They more than meet my Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval.

CheapTickets.com meets the Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval

 

Select this Good Night Rest link to get to CheapTickets.com. One of the partners of HotelClub.com, I have used them for booking flights and hotels and in combination with HotelClub.com. As their name implies they have pretty cheap tickets for flights, especially last-minute flights. I have used CheapTickets.com within North America and found them responsive and cheap at times. Cheaptickets.com phone number is 888-596-5860 but wow is it hard to find it. They much prefer you email them. CheapTickets.com keep that phone number pretty well hidden as obviously they would rather respond by email. I have never had to call them but because of their cheap flights and easy website interface they meet my Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval.

 

Good Night Rest - Hotels.com

Hotels.com meets the Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval

 

Select this Good Night Rest link to get to Hotels.com. They are one of the older internet hotel discounters and as such they have the system down pretty well. Hotels.com phone number is on every page and they have separate phone numbers for the country you are in. Hotels.com are often the cheapest but not always. They are pushing more and more their last-minute deals which I have found to be excellent. Hotels.com have great reviews by other travellers who have stayed at specific hotels and that makes a lot of difference in my having a good night rest. If the hotel has a poor rating I don’t even bother to book it. Hotels.com are friendly on the phone, can fix most mistakes I make such as booking the wrong dates which apparently is pretty common among discounters. Also I have found if I find a better deal elsewhere Hotels.com will more than match it and that makes a significant difference. Hotels.com specialize in hotel bookings in most countries and I have used them in North America, South America, Asia, Australia and Europe. Hotels.com more than meet my Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval.

 

Good Night Rest - Travelocity.com

Travelocity.com meets the Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval

 

Select this Good Night Rest link to get to Travelocity.com. They advertise everywhere including other forms of media such as television. Travelocity.com are aggressive in their marketing and in their prices. I have used Travelocity.com to bid on rooms and to simply book rooms.  I have used Travelocity.com for cheap flights, cheap hotel rooms, cheap car rentals, cheap cruises, even cheap rail passes. I have booked cheap Disney passes and Disney vacations often a lot cheaper than the poor soul in the room beside me. I have rarely not had a good night rest when booking through them, and Travelocity.com has refunded me on a couple of stays that were pretty bad. Travelocity.com are cheap so sometimes it’s not the best hotel I ever stayed at. Travelocity.com phone number is 888-872-8356 and it is right on the front page. They are friendly on the phone, will book at the same prices on the phone, can answer my questions on the phone, fix a problem on the phone and they more than meet my Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval.

Good Night Rest - Expedia.com

Expedia.com meets the Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval

 

Select this Good Night Rest link to get to Expedia.com. Probably the very first internet discounter I used was Expedia.com. They have an easy to use interface, often cheap rates and perhaps because I used them first I still use them. Expedia.com phone number is well hidden but the Expedia.com phone number is 800-397-3342 and they are not as helpful as other hotel discounters. They can answer some questions but if I need to cancel a reservation I have to do it on-line which sometimes is inconvenient if I am in an airport with no wireless connectivity or the side of a road somewhere. I can book just about anything from hotels and cruises to flights, rental cars, activities and more. Expedia.com are often not the cheapest and they will not take reservations on the phone. However they stand behind what they promote and the hotels they represent. I have had Expedia.com refund me for a bad stay more than once, although not without some arm twisting. They meet my Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval but Expedia.com need to update their offerings and indeed their customer support to be more competitive.

 

Good Night Rest - Priceline.com

Priceline.com meets the Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval

 

Select this Good Night Rest link to get to Priceline.com. Priceline.com got its start as a “name your own price” bidding site for hotel stays. Priceline.com did a lot of advertising at the outset and then settled back to doing the odd bit of promotion here and there. It worked though as Priceline.com have done a very good job at offering discounts with some exceptional prices at various hotels. You can book more than hotels through Priceline.com including vacation packages, hotels, activities and more. The problem with bidding is I never know how convenient the hotel is going to be and often I find 5 star hotels I won are more like 3 star hotels in my mind. If I want something specific because of a business stay, then I just don’t bid. Priceline.com again hides their phone number which is strange because it is 800-774-2354 or 1-800-PRICELINE. With a vanity number like that why hide it? I found out why when I had to call Priceline.com to cancel a room from the side of the highway. They cannot help. Priceline.com basically can confirm that I won the bid on the room but I was not able to get a refund. Their bidding service is very good and because of that they meet my Good Night Rest Seal Of Approval but if you are on a business stay, applying for a new job or your first job, spend the extra and forget about bidding. Stay at a hotel that is as close as possible to where you have to go. The money you save is never worth the aggravation of finding that your 5 star hotel is 25 blocks from where you are going for a job interview.

Prices are sometimes better than on their other site HotelClub.com and I am not sure why. You can book flights and hotels in countries around the world and I have used them for Europe, Australia, Asia and New Zealand. They have some excellent last-minute deals and they meet my Good Night Rest Seal of Approval. RatesToGo.com also have a best price guarantee and my experience has been good.
