Are you keen to save money on your upcoming break? Then look no further than booking a secret hotel. Did you know that you could save up to 35% when you decide to book a secret hotel? That’s correct, 35%! An increasing number of people are becoming familiar with the virtues of booking a secret hotel, as more areas are opening up and more four and five star hotels and resorts are joining the collection. In 2013, Hotwire publicised that an extra 5,000 hotels would be joining their collection.
So how does the process work? Well, when a hotel has empty rooms but doesn’t care to publish promos in public, they can list anonymously via travel agents like Travelocity. Potential guests will then be able to read a small description to find out what type of hotel it is. They will also be able to view the star rating and a list of amenities. However, they will not be able to view any pictures of the property or it’s name until after the booking is confirmed.
