SAVE MONEY ON YOUR HOLIDAY IN SCOTLAND






SAVING MONEY WITH SCOTTISH HOTELS

Each hotel offers masses of different rates most of them hidden. The highest are charged to people who walk in through the door. Here is how to dig them out.


First you need to specify the rooms you want and know what the normal rate is what rooms are on offer and what the deal includes – breakfast etc. Best to do this from their web site or with a preparatory phone call. If you don’t and you try and negotiate a low rate without pinning  them down on what you want they’ll book you into the night porter’s room at the back, the one they can’t sell.


Best to try it on several hotels in the area first and get a general idea of where your chosen hotel is on price. If it is their peak season you might have difficulty but at either end of the peak or the low season it will be easier.


You could tell them what you want to pay and ask them if they will do it for that. They won’t but they might reduce their price a bit. if you only get a small discount then you can ask for free extras to be included. Quiet polite persistence usually pays off.
