80€/$ per night at Radisson properties worldwide - valid throughout the year 2014

Friday, December 27, 2013

Better than any Radisson discount code, this special rate provides exceptional value especially in big cities, where the regular rates are very high.

Not only that you get a minimum 25% discount, but:
- the rate also includes breakfast;
- the rate is fully flexible, so you can cancel in case travel plans change;
- sometimes you might even receive a complimentary upgrade.

This is a discounted rate for family and friends of Carlson employees globally.

The Carlson employee name and work location will be required at time of check-in.

Basically, if you know a Carlson employee and the place where he/she works, then you can use this rate (for example, the name of a Radisson hotel manager that you might have befriended during one of your last trips and whose name you can remember by searching on Google).

Click on the link below to start your search and see the code that must be typed in the field "Promotional code":

Better than a Radisson promo code - special family and friends rate - use promo code CARLSONF

The link above returns a rate of  80€/$ for Radisson hotels, or 70€/$ at Park Inn or Park Plaza hotels. The rate might not be available at all times and at all properties, but it is definitely worth trying.

The only issue is that these rates do not qualify for any loyalty points / promotions.

Let us know how it worked for you during the reservation process and during check-in/check-out at the hotel.

25% discount at Radisson properties worldwide

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Radisson promo codes are a rarity these days, so we have come up with this idea on getting the next best thing to a Radisson discount code.

Our proposal is to use the Radisson's Best Rates Guarantee, which means that if you book directly through one of Radisson´s website and then, within 24 hours, you find a cheaper rate elsewhere, Radisson will give you the room at 25% discount compared to the cheaper rate.

For example: the room costs 100$ on Radisson´s website, you find it at 80$ on another website (e.g. Orbitz), then the final price you will pay to Radisson is 60$ (being a 25% discount from the 80$).

The guarantee is valid for Radisson Blu, Radisson Blu Edwardian, Radisson, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson, Country Inns and Suites, as well as art’otel brand hotels.

It might not always work, as sometimes there are no cheaper rates elsewhere, but it is worth trying.

General conditions:

- an online claim form must be submitted within 24 hours from the reservation made on Radisson´s website;

- the cheaper price found elsewhere must be for the same date(s), the same length of stay, the same number of guests, and the same room type (i.e. room size and amenities) at the same hotel, in the same currency, subject to the same rate rules and/or restrictions;

- the guarantee may be claimed only for room only stays. Room packages (e.g. food included) are not covered by the guarantee;

- the competing rate must be available and bookable in the local currency of the hotel.

Our general tips:

- always book a Radisson flexible  / refundable rate, so that you can cancel the reservation in case the claim is not confirmed by Radisson;

- if you cannot find a cheaper rate elsewhere, write us an e-mail at hotelsrooms@yahoo.com and we will try to help you.


How the Radisson Best Rates Guarantee works, in five simple steps:

Step 1

Look for your preferred hotel to see the room rates on Radisson´s official website - see link below:

Radisson hotel reservations

Do not make the reservation yet, just write down the preferred room and rate.

Step 2

Search the same room at the same hotel on online travel agencies (e.g. Expedia, Travelocity, etc.). You can see the comprehensive list of travel agencies we use following the link below:

Our preferred online hotel booking websites

Note the web address of the travel agency and the amount of cheaper rate found - the "Comparison rate" (also make a print-screen showing the cheaper rate). Do NOT make any reservation on that website, as the final purpose is to make a discounted reservation through the Radisson official website.

Step 3

Make a reservation through Radisson´s official website - see link below:

Radisson hotel reservations

Note down the reservation number, as you will need it to file the claim form (in step 4).

Step 4

Within 24 hours from the Radisson reservation, submit the claim to Radisson to ask for the Best Rate sGuarantee, since you found the cheaper rate elsewhere (at step 2). Use this link from the official website to make the claim:

Claim form - Radisson Best Rates Guarantee

The claim must be printed and filled in with all the details and then sent by fax or scanned and then sent by e-mail to BPG@carlsonrezidor.com. Enclose also print-screens with how you found the cheaper rate.

Step 5

A Radisson representative will contact you within 72 hours. If you have not had a response within this timeframe please e-mail BPG@carlsonrezidor.com.


Additional information

- It needs to be said that Radisson will have the final say on approval or not, so, apart from providing good arguments during an e-mail / phone discussion, there is not much left to be done on your side, except trying again :))

- opaque providers of hotel rooms, such as Priceline.com and Hotwire.com, that do not reveal the hotel brand name until after you have pre-paid your hotel room do not qualify for the guarantee.

50$ discount at Hilton hotels worldwide with their Best Rates Guarantee

Saturday, December 14, 2013

Continuing our quest for tips and tricks to get Hilton discounts, here is another way to save 50$ from your Hilton booking.

The solution is to use the Hilton Best Rates Guarantee, which means that if you book directly through Hilton´s website and then, within 24 hours you find a cheaper rate elsewhere, Hilton will give you a 50$ discount, plus will adjust the room rate to the cheaper rate.

For example: the room costs 100$ on Hilton´s website, you find it at 80$ on another website (e.g. Expedia), then the final cost for your room will be 30$ (being the 80$ for the room minus the 50$ additional discount / rebate).

It might not always work, as sometimes there are no cheaper rates elsewhere, but it is worth trying.

General conditions:

-  an online claim form must be submitted within 24 hours from the reservation made on Hilton´s website;

- the cheaper price found elsewhere must be for the same room with the same reservation conditions (the same room type, at the same hotel, with the same dates and length of stay, same number of guests, same designation as either cancellable or non-cancellable, same advance purchase policies, and the same terms and conditions governing the room rate).

Our general tips:

- always book a Hilton flexible  / refundable rate, so that you can cancel the reservation in case the claim is not confirmed by Hilton;

- if you cannot find a cheaper rate elsewhere, write us an e-mail at hotelsrooms@yahoo.com and we will try to help you.


How the Hilton Best Rates Guarantee works, in five simple steps:

Step 1

Look for your preferred hotel to see the room rates on Hilton´s official website - see link below:

Hilton hotel reservations

Do not make the reservation yet, just write down the preferred room and rate.

Step 2

Search the same room at the same hotel on online travel agencies (e.g. Expedia, Travelocity, etc.). You can see the comprehensive list of travel agencies we use following the link below:

Our preferred online hotel booking websites

Note the web address of the travel agency and the amount of cheaper rate found - the "Comparison rate" (also make a print-screen showing the cheaper rate). Do NOT make any reservation on that website, as the final purpose is to make a discounted reservation through the Hilton official website.

Step 3

Make a reservation through Hilton´s official website - see link below:

Hilton hotel reservations

Note down the reservation number, as you will need it to file the claim form (in step 4).

Step 4

Within 24 hours from the Hilton reservation, submit the online claim to Hilton to ask for the Best Rate Guarantee, since you found the cheaper rate elsewhere (at step 2). Use this link from the official website to make the claim:

Claim form - Hilton Best Rates Guarantee

In the "Comments" section of the claim form, if finding the "Comparison rate" on the other website is not straightforward, provide some details on how you found that rate, so that the Hilton representative can find the same rate.

For example, on some websites, not all the rooms and rates are shown, but you need to click on a button "Show all rates". Indicate in the "Comments" section if this was the case.

Also, in the "Comments" section indicate whether the "Comparison rate" found elsewhere includes tax, breakfast, etc.

Step 5

A Hilton representative will contact you to inform you about the claim: whether it was approved, or if not, the reasons for dismissal. Here is where the print-screen (see step 2) might come in handy, in case of disagreement with the Hilton representative.


Additional information

- as expected, Hilton will have the final say on approval or not, so, apart from providing good arguments during an e-mail / phone discussion, there is not much left to be done on your side, except trying again :))

- for hotels outside the US, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico, the 50$ discount is given in the form of a discount from the invoice at check-out;

- for hotels within the US, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico, a  $50 American Express Gift Cheque will be couriered to your address after check-out;

- opaque providers of hotel rooms, such as Priceline.com and Hotwire.com, that do not reveal the hotel brand name until after you have pre-paid your hotel room do not qualify for the guarantee.

Free night at InterContinental, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn with their Best Price Guarantee

Before proceeding with any hotel reservation at hotels from the InterContinental Group (IHG), it is advisable to see if you qualify for their Best Price Guarantee.

This means that if you book directly through IHG´s website and then, within 24 hours, you find a cheaper rate elsewhere, IHG will give you
- the first night free, and
- the next nights from the same reservation at the lower price found.

Of course, this is a unique benefit compared to other chains when the reservation has only 1 night, meaning a free stay at any IHG hotel.

It might not always work, as sometimes there are no cheaper rates elsewhere, but it is definitely worth trying (the reward is too big to pass the chance).

General conditions:

- the booking made on the IHG website must be at the lowest available price for the room desired. In practice that means that, if a non-cancellable advance purchase rate is available, you cannot claim the guarantee for a flexible rate. However, we always advise NOT to book non-refundable rates;

-  an online claim form must be submitted within 24 hours from the reservation made on the IHG website;

- the cheaper price found elsewhere must be for the same room with the same reservation conditions (room description and features, cancellation policy, board basis, etc.).

Our general tips:

- always book a flexible rate, so that you can cancel the reservation in case the claim is not confirmed by IHG;

- you may also look at superior rooms (maybe add the breakfast as well) and not stick to the standard rooms;

- if you cannot find a cheaper rate elsewhere, write us an e-mail at hotelsrooms@yahoo.com and we will try to help you.


How the IHG Best Price Guarantee works, in five simple steps:

Step 1

Look for your preferred hotel to see the room rates on IHG´s official website - see link below:

InterContinental Hotels and Resorts

Do not make the reservation yet, just write down the preferred room and rate.

Step 2

Search the same room at the same hotel on online travel agencies (e.g. Expedia, Travelocity, etc.). You can see the comprehensive list of travel agencies we use following the link below:

Our preferred online hotel booking websites

Note the web address of the travel agency and the amount of cheaper rate found - the "Comparison rate" (also make a print-screen showing the cheaper rate). Do NOT make any reservation on that website, as the final purpose is to make a discounted reservation through the IHG official website.

Pay attention: the comparison website must show the rate in the same currency as on the IHG website (the rate on the comparison website must be available, viewable, quoted, booked, and paid for in the currency of the hotel). If the currency is different, the claim will not qualify for the guarantee.

The difference between the IHG rate and the lower rate must be of at least 1$ or 1%, whichever is higher.

Below we are listing the comparison websites that are not accepted by IHG:
- TravelRepublic - because it does not provide an automatic confirmation.

Step 3

Make a reservation through IHG´s official website - see link below:

Make a reservation with InterContinental Hotels and Resorts

In order to qualify for the Best Rate Guarantee, you must book a IHG Rewards Club rate.

Note down the reservation number, as you will need it to file the claim form (in step 4).

Step 4

Within 24 hours from the IHG reservation, submit the online claim to IHG to ask for the Best Price Guarantee, since you found the cheaper rate elsewhere (at step 2). Use this link from the official website to make the claim:

Online form for claiming the IHG Best Price Guarantee

In the "Comments" section of the claim form, if finding the "Comparison rate" on the other website is not straightforward, provide some details on how you found that rate, so that the IHG representative can find the same rate.

For example, on some websites, not all the rooms and rates are shown, but you need to click on a button "Show all rates". Indicate in the "Comments" section if this was the case.

Also, in the "Comments" section indicate whether the "Comparison rate" found elsewhere includes tax, breakfast, etc.

Step 5

An IHG representative will contact you to inform you about the claim: whether it was approved, or if not, the reasons for dismissal. Here is where the print-screen (see step 2) might come in handy, in case of disagreement with the IHG representative.


Additional information

- IHG will have the final say on approval or not, so, apart from providing good arguments during an e-mail / phone discussion, there is not much left to be done on your side, except trying again :))

- within a 7 day interval, a person (or members of the same household) cannot make multiple claims at the same IHG hotel or at different IHG hotels within 50 miles of each other;

- opaque providers of hotel rooms, such as Priceline.com and Hotwire.com, that do not reveal the hotel brand name until after you have pre-paid your hotel room do not qualify for the guarantee.

50% discount at Movenpick Hotels and Resorts worldwide

Monday, December 9, 2013

Apart from the temporary discount and offers that may be available at various Moevenpick Hotels, we found a permanent solution to get a 50% discount on room rates.

The solution is to use the Movenpick Best Rate Guarantee, which means that if you book directly through Movenpick´s website and then within 24 hours you find a cheaper rate elsewhere, Movenpick will give you the room at 50% discount compared to the cheaper rate, for the first 3 nights of your stay.

For example: the room costs 100$ on Movenpick´s website, you find it at 80$ on another website (e.g. Expedia), then the final price you will pay to Movenpick is 40$ (being a 50% discount from the 80$).

It might not always work, as sometimes there are no cheaper rates elsewhere, but it is worth trying.

General conditions:

-  a claim must be submitted by e-mail within 24 hours from the reservation made on Movenpick´s website;

- the cheaper price found elsewhere must be for the same room with the same reservation conditions (cancellation policy, board basis, etc.).

Our general tips:

- always book a Movenpick flexible  / refundable rate, so that you can cancel the reservation in case the claim is not confirmed by Movenpick;

- the higher the rate on Movenpick´s website, the higher the chances of finding something cheaper elsewhere;

- if you cannot find a cheaper rate elsewhere, write us an e-mail at hotelsrooms@yahoo.com and we will try to help you.


How the Moevenpick's Best Rate Guarantee works, in five simple steps:

Step 1

Look for your preferred hotel to see the room rates on Movenpick´s official website - see link below:

Do not make the reservation yet, just write down the preferred room and rate.

Step 2

Step 3

Make a reservation through Movenpick´s official website - see link below:

Movenpick hotel reservations

Note down the reservation number, as you will need it to file the claim (in step 4).

Step 4

Within 24 hours from the Movenpick reservation, submit the claim by e-mail to the following address:

reservation.support(at)moevenpick.com

In the e-mail provide all details necessary:
- the confirmation number from the Movenpick reservation (including location, room type, number of nights, price on Mövenpick website);
- the cheaper rate found elsewhere (web address of the travel agency, cheaper rate, print-screens, etc.)

Step 5

A Movenpick representative will contact you during business hours (Monday to Friday) to inform you about the claim: whether it was approved (and you have 50% discount on the lower rate for the first 3 nights of your stay), or if not, the reasons for rejection.

Additional information

- It needs to be said that Mövenpick will have the final say on approval or not, so, apart from providing good arguments during an e-mail / phone discussion, there is not much left to be done on your side, except trying again :))

- you cannot use the cheaper rate given by websites which provide vouchers to be handed in at the hotel reception (like Otel.com, or similar);

- the Best Rate Guarantee policy does not apply to the following properties: Hotel Carcani by Mövenpick Gastronomy, Hotel BenjamInn by Mövenpick, GastronomyHotel Touring by Mövenpick Gastronomy, Panorama Motel Wörther See by Mövenpick Gastronomy, Wald- und Golfhotel Hünxe by Mövenpick Gastronomy;

- opaque providers of hotel rooms, such as Priceline.com and Hotwire.com, that do not reveal the hotel brand name until after you have pre-paid your hotel room do not qualify for the guarantee.

It might not always work, as sometimes there are no cheaper rates elsewhere, but it is worth trying.

General conditions:

-  an online claim form must be submitted within 24 hours from the reservation made on Marriott´s website;

- the cheaper price found elsewhere must be for the same room with the same reservation conditions (cancellation policy, board basis, etc.).

Our general tips:

- always book a Marriott flexible  / refundable rate, so that you can cancel the reservation in case the claim is not confirmed by Marriott;

- the higher the rate on Marriott´s website, the higher the chances of finding something cheaper elsewhere;

- if you cannot find a cheaper rate elsewhere, write us an e-mail at hotelsrooms@yahoo.com and we will try to help you.


How the Marriott's Look No Further® Best Rate Guarantee works, in five simple steps:

Step 1

Look for your preferred hotel to see the room rates on Marriott´s official website - see link below:

Marriott hotel reservations

Do not make the reservation yet, just write down the preferred room and rate.

Step 2

Search the same room at the same hotel on online travel agencies (e.g. Expedia, Travelocity, etc.). You can see the comprehensive list of travel agencies we use following the link below:

Our preferred online hotel booking websites

Note the web address of the travel agency and the amount of cheaper rate found - the "Comparison rate" (also make a print-screen showing the cheaper rate). Do NOT make any reservation on that website, as the final purpose is to make a discounted reservation through the Marriott official website.

Step 3

Make a reservation through Marriott´s official website - see link below:

Marriott hotel reservations

Note down the reservation number, as you will need it to file the claim form (in step 4).

Step 4

Within 24 hours from the Marriott reservation, submit the online claim to Marriott to ask for the Best Rate Guarantee, since you found the cheaper rate elsewhere (at step 2). Use this link from the official website to make the claim:

Claim form - Marriott Best Rate Guarantee

In the "Comments" section of the claim form, if finding the "Comparison rate" on the other website is not straightforward, provide some details on how you found that rate, so that the Marriott representative can find the same rate.

For example, on some websites, not all the rooms and rates are shown, but you need to click on a button "Show all rates". Indicate in the "Comments" section if this was the case.

Also, in the "Comments" section indicate whether the "Comparison rate" found elsewhere includes tax, breakfast, etc.

Step 5

A Marriott representative will contact you (usually within 24 hours) to inform you about the claim: whether it was approved, or if not, the reasons for dismissal. Here is where the print-screen (see step 2) might come in handy, in case of disagreement with the Marriott representative.


Additional information

- It needs to be said that Marriott will have the final say on approval or not, so, apart from providing good arguments during an e-mail / phone discussion, there is not much left to be done on your side, except trying again :))

- for hotels outside United States and Canada, you cannot use the cheaper rate given by websites which provide vouchers to be handed in at the hotel reception (like Otel.com, or similar);

- the guarantee may be claimed only for room only or room plus breakfast stays. Room packages (e.g. dinner included) are not covered by the guarantee;

- the Best Rate Guarantee policy applies to the following brands: Marriott Hotels and Resorts, JW Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Renaissance Hotels and Resorts, Courtyard, AC Hotels by Marriott, Fairfield Inn, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn, TownePlace Suites, Marriott Conference Centers, Marriott Vacation Club International, or Autograph Collection;

- opaque providers of hotel rooms, such as Priceline.com and Hotwire.com, that do not reveal the hotel brand name until after you have pre-paid your hotel room do not qualify for the guarantee.
