Best Money-Saving Hotel Tips

Bundling

Hotels drop prices to unprecedented lows when they can “hide” their room rates from the general public. One way they do it: bundling rooms with airfares through online travel agents such as Expedia, Orbitz, and Travelocity. In a recent test, we searched for round-trip tickets from New York City to Los Angeles with a seven- night hotel stay at the Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey. Bought separately, we’d have had to pay $2,367. Bundled on Travelocity, however, we’d pay $632 less—that’s a full 20 percent savings.
