Get the best hotel rate by booking each night separately

April 5, 2015

We love hostels because it offers cheap rooms (but not so clean!) and a chance to meet fellow travelers. But if you’re looking for a multi-night stay at a hotel, you would probably book it as one reservation. But One Mile at a Time recommends to book each night individually, and you might get a better rate.

Hotelier

They compared the rates at the Hyatt’s website for a room for 3 nights and found that the first night was for $179, but the second night was for $149. When you’re booking for multiple nights, then although most hotels will show different rates per night, when you’re about to make a reservation, it will show an average price of the higher one and charge that rate for all the nights. In this case, $179 for all 3 nights.

But if you book each night as it’s own reservation, you will pay less and save a lot of cash.

Always remember to check the individual nightly rates when booking a hotel, as it can save you a lot of cash. While hotels are supposed to charge you based on the average nightly rate, that doesn’t always happen in practice.

You’ll probably have to switch rooms during your stay, but if the savings are significant, it might be worth the trouble.

Use This Trick To Save Money On Hotel Stays



  • Sorry, I just don’t see how seperate reservations would lower the price in the given case. Nevermind, as a whole it’s a good tip to check all options, because every place is different and you never know.

      Hi Maya,
      Although this may not work all the time, but in case if you see different prices (per night) for all the nights you’re trying to book, the hotel will take the highest price and consider that as the booking rate. See our example in the article.
