There is a lot to consider when you’re planning a trip. Right after you decide where you're going, you need to think about where you're going to stay. Finding a hotel room for a good price can be a bit stressful, especially if you’re not familiar with online booking or the numerous discount websites vying for you attention.
Today, we usually find the majority of hotel deals and bargains on the aforementioned booking websites – hotels.com, priceline.com, and booking.com – along with outside sites like Groupon and Living Social. Yes, you will come across great deals, especially if you book a bundle – airfare + hotel – but the truth is that a good old-fashioned phone call to the front desk may be just as rewarding.
