Are you in the market to save money on your following trip? Then how about booking a secret hotel. Did you know that you could save as much as 35% when you opt to book a secret hotel? Yep 35%! An increasing number of people are becoming knowledgeable on the merits of booking a secret hotel, as more destinations are opening up and more four and five star properties are being added to the collection. In 2013, Hotwire announced that an extra 5,000 hotels would be added to their collection.
So how does the process work? Well, when a hotel has empty guest rooms but doesn’t want to advertise promotions in the public domain, they can list anonymously through travel agents like Lastminute. Potential guests will then be able to read a short description to find out what kind of hotel it is. They will furthermore be able to view the star rating and a section on its amenities. However, they will not be able to view any pictures of the establishment or it’s name till after the booking is verified.
