Whether you're looking for a place to rest your head or somewhere to lounge on lazy days, finding the perfect hotel for you is a breeze.
You’ll need to decide whether you want to stay in a budget hotel, a hotel chain, an independent hotel or a boutique retreat.
Once you’ve worked out what you’re after, it’s easy to compare hotel prices to see if you can bag a bargain.
You can also check out the hotel’s amenities, location and photos so you know exactly what to expect.
Keep an eye out for any taxes that could catch you out like city tax or room tax - you’ll usually have to pay these on arrival at your hotel so you might not know about them until you check in.
Spending over £100 on your hotel? Book with a credit card. It could see you covered if something goes wrong as your card provider can refund you under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act but beware there are restrictions when booking through third parties, please check before you book
Be sure to get travel insurance as soon as you’ve booked your trip too, otherwise you might miss out on cancellation cover.
Before you book your hotel, check their cancellation policy. Unless your plans are set in stone, choose a refundable option so you can get your money back if you need to cancel.
Get in touch with the hotel you’ve booked with to cancel your stay or cancel online – your booking confirmation should contain a link.
Villas and apartments can work out a lot cheaper than hotel rooms, if you’re travelling in a group.
Use sites like Airbnb to find somewhere for the whole gang.
