Another Way to Save on Hotels

lanai-four-seasons-manele-bay-june-2016-006If you book a hotel in advance, then be sure to recheck the price of your stay about three or four days before you check in. Often, hotels that don’t fill up lower their prices to entice potential guests. As long as you have a refundable reservation, and you booked directly through the hotel, you can reserve another room at the lower price and cancel the original reservation. It’s also a good idea to clear your computer’s cookies or use a different browser just in case the hotel is playing any funny games.

FYI: The hotel above is the Four Seasons Lanai, where I just recently stayed.
