Top Questions for

  • How do I get the best deals on hotel rooms?

    Hotels advertising on rely on the traveler who does not make advance reservations to fill those remaining rooms on a same day "walk-in" (without a reservation) basis.

    These travelers appreciate the freedom to control their travel schedules and the flexibility and price advantage that a last minute hotel selection can provide. Unlike typical seasonal promotions or online travel sites, travelers using these valuable coupons can select from thousands of great hotels and choose the one whose rates and amenities match their individual needs.

      Use these tips to have the best possible coupon-redemption experience:

    • Call the hotel in advance. In some cases, hotels may agree to honor the advertised rate for advance bookings, so travelers are encouraged to call the hotel directly if that option is important. On most of the coupons you'll find a toll-free number in red, which is solely for users.
    • Select multiple coupons within the same area. Since coupon acceptance is based on walk-in availability, it's smart to select or print multiple coupons from hotels that meet your needs and budget in your desired destination. This allows you to go to other hotels that are nearby if the first property is fully booked or unable to honor your coupon.
    • Discounted rates may not be available during peak travel seasons or special event periods. These low rates are generally not offered through any other means and are available only when a valid coupon is presented at the time of check-in. There is no guarantee that the discount rate will be available unless the hotel expects that a number of rooms might go unoccupied. You should call the hotel a few hours before arrival to check availability.
  • How do I redeem my coupon?

    Once you have decided which hotel you'd like to stay in, save the coupon to your favorites in the mobile application or website, or print the coupon from your computer. Call the hotel when you are on your way to confirm availability. You can easily use the Call Now feature on the hotel listings from your mobile device to contact the front desk. When you arrive at the hotel, display the coupon on your mobile device or tablet, or show a printed coupon from the computer or guide. Some hotels may request you email the coupon to them from your mobile device. Remember, coupon rates are based on availability.

  • Is the hotel required to accept a coupon when they have vacancies? is designed for the hotels to accept the coupons based on availability, which is based on the anticipated number of rooms the hotel does not expect to fill that particular night.
