More ways to save money on hotels
Apart from flash deals there are a variety of ways you can save money on hotels.
One way is to search for rooms in incognito mode.
Google's incognito setting allows you to surf the web without sites adding cookies to your browser.
Online retailers are able to track your web searches using cookies, and can use the data to set your price according to location.
They can also raise the price if you repeatedly visit the site – in the hopes that this will force your hand to purchase the service before the price rises any further.
Another way to get the best deal is to book your hotel on a Friday.
According to a survey conducted by budget travel retailer Kayak, Friday is the cheapest day to book hotels. Kayak also recommends leaving your booking until the last minute when hotels are likely to drop prices.
The only exception to this rule is if you are travelling to a popular destination during a busy weekend. Then Kayak recommends booking your hotel early.
