Looking for a Good Deal?
Making a reservation for a group hotel can be a quick and efficient task if you know the right questions and information to seek. You don’t have to be a born negotiator (but if you are, that’s always a plus); the simple steps below will assist you in finding the best group hotel and overall price.
- Keep your dates flexible and always have alternate dates for any group travel event
- If you can’t get the price you are looking for, you may be able to work out some free amenities (i.e. breakfast, parking vouchers, comp driver room, and more)
- Stay away from providing your budget to the hotel. Keep your conversations honest, but don’t provide unneeded information.
- You are never committed to booking at a hotel, so always feel free to walk away or inform the hotel you have other options.
