1. Use price comparison sites
2. Use discount codes
Compare the lowest hotel rate you found using e.g. HotelsCombined to the price on Booking.com using the discount codes below:
$40 (€34) discount on your next Booking.com reservation of $80 (€66) or more.
£40 (€45) discount on your next Booking.com reservation of £120 (€135) or more.
10% discount on Booking.com might be an alternative for more expensive bookings.
Also check FlyerTalk for more discount codes.
3. Use cashback sites
Did you know you can earn money with your hotel bookings? Using cashback sites, you can get up to 20% back of the money you spent on hotel bookings!
- Create a cashback site account

4. Use HotelTonight
Before you hit that booking button, make sure to check hotel prices on HotelTonight. If it’s your first time using the HotelTonight app, discount code BLAPERS will give you another $25 or €21 off. Later this fall you’ll be able to book 100 days ahead using the HotelTonight app.
