Are you in the market to save money on your next getaway? Then look no further than booking a secret hotel. Did you know that you could save a staggering 35% when you select to book a secret hotel? Yep 35%! A growing number of people are becoming clued up on the benefits of booking a secret hotel, as more locations open up and more 4 and 5 star hotels are being added to the collection. In 2013, Hotwire reported that an additional 5,000 hotels would be joining their collection.
So how do they work? Well, when a hotel has empty rooms but doesn’t like to market markdowns publicly, they can list anonymously through travel agents like LowCostHolidays. Potential customers can then read a short description to find out more about the hotel. They will furthermore be able to see the star rating and a section on its services. However, they will not be able to view any pictures of the guest rooms or it’s name till the booking is verified.
