Saving Money at Hotels

      No Comments on Saving Money at Hotels
One of our guiding principles at the Financial Guide to Life is to avoid paying full price. 
 
Here are my key tips for saving money at hotels:
  • Book at hotels offering free breakfast, WIFI, and parking.
  • Stay in the suburbs rather than big cities.
  • Check several travel sites.
  • Get discounts from your organizations such as AARP and AAA.
  • Use the bidding sites Priceline and Hotwire in cities with good competition.
  • Get one of the hotel loyalty cards that let you get hotel points from everyday spending that will get your more points that hotel stays.  Some electricity providers will also give you hotel points for spending, but take care that you aren’t paying a higher cost for their electricity.saving money at hotels

About John Kimball

Over the past few decades, I have experienced most of these financial issues with both mistakes and successes. I sure wish someone had told me these things when I was first starting out. So many times I have cried out, “I want a do over!” when I learned a new financial lesson or tip. I aim to pass along to you the financial insights I have gained from experience, reading, analysis, and living the financial aspects of managing, saving, investing, and spending your money. I am an analyst with a large organization and happily married with two children on their way to an expensive college, no doubt. I read numerous financial blogs, websites, newsletters, magazines, newspapers, and books to bring you the latest news, insights, tips, and lessons combined with decades of experience.
