Travel experts share their tips for getting hotel perks without spending a ton of money. Here are the best ones:
- Try booking with the hotel directly- Sometimes you can get a better deal booking directly with the hotel
- But before that do a comparison with a 3rd party site- these sites are good about letting you know upfront what perks a hotel might have, like free parking.
- Tell the hotel you're celebrating- It's possible the hotel will do something special to help you celebrate, like send champagne or dessert.
- Join the Hotel Loyalty program- Collect points and use them for perks!
- Do your research- you can find out a lot of info about the hotel you're staying at by checking reviews and tagged photos on social media!
- Just ask for upgrades- the worst thing that could happen is they say "no."
- Use A travel agent- they likely know of better deals and perks, plus they have a lot of connections.
