Save on Hotels Easy

Post by MrMan » November 20th, 2017, 5:03 pm

I noticed that on certain travel websites that if you put in dollars, you get a minimum price of $100. I put in rupiah, and the same hotel was 990 something thousand rupiah. That's about a 30% savings right there. The hotel wasn't even in Indonesia. I am just familiar with the value of the rupiah.

Paying for a hotel in rupiah and then paying the transaction fee for changing currency would have to be less than 30% on a hotel, right?

This is something to keep in mind if you book hotels abroad.

Use www.agoda.com. They have lots of low priced hotels at decent quality in almost every place you go. Can't beat their prices.

I can try it out next time. Agoda.com had a room at the same hotel I tried to book for a little more than Booking.com, but I may have used up the cheaper deal already.

The easiest way to "Save on hotels" is to use AirbNB.
