Are you determined to save money on your next break? Then look no further than booking a secret hotel. Did you know that you could save an incredible 35% when you select to book a secret hotel? That’s right, 35%! More and more people are becoming clued up on the benefits of booking a secret hotel, as more cities open up and more 4 and 5 star establishments are being added to the collection. In 2013, Hotwire revealed that an additional 5,000 hotels would be joining their collection.
So how does the process work? Well, when a hotel has vacant rooms but doesn’t wish to market reductions in the public domain, they can list anonymously through travel agents like Expedia. Potential guests will then be able to read a small description to find out a bit more about the hotel. They will also be able to view the star rating and a section on its services. However, they will not be able to view any pictures of the establishment or it’s name until the booking is confirmed.
