Which type of hotel should you choose?

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.

How to find a cheap hotel deal

Here are some handy hints that could help you save when you’re booking your hotel:

  1. Time your break wisely – prices will increase around any local events or school holidays

  2. Keep your dates flexible – you'll have a better chance of finding a great price

  3. Check the cancellation policy – if you need to cancel, will you get a refund?

  4. Read real reviews – sites like TripAdvisor can help you get a proper idea of the place

  5. Book a package holiday – these usually work out cheaper than a trip you’ve planned yourself

What to look out for when booking a hotel

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.

Frequently asked questions

  • How do I know I can trust my hotel deal?

    Read independent reviews before you book your hotel, to get unbiased opinions from fellow travellers.

    If you’re off on a package holiday, ABTA or ATOL protection will make sure you’re covered if your holiday provider goes bust.

  • What if I need to cancel my hotel booking?

    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.

  • What’s the best hotel option for a larger group?

    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.
