100$ travel card from Best Western (with their Low Rate Guaranteed program)

Sunday, February 23, 2014

As all of the large international hotel chains, Best Western also offers a Best Rate Guarantee.

This means that when you book directly through Best Western´s website and then, within 24 hours you find a cheaper rate elsewhere, Best Western will give you the room at the cheaper rate found and, in addition, will also send you a 100$ travel card.

The Travel Card will be sent by Best Western after your stay and can be used when settling your bill during your next stays at any Best Western property.


This solution might not always work in all locations and all dates, 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 Best Western´s website;

- the cheaper price found elsewhere must be for the same hotel, dates, length of stay, same currency, number of guests and similar room type.

Our general tips:

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

- 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 Best Western Low Rate Guaranteed works, in five simple steps:

Step 1

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

Best Western 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, Orbitz, 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 Best Western official website.

Step 3

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

Best Western 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 Best Western reservation, submit the online claim to ask for the Low 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 - Best Western Low Rate Guaranteed


Step 5

A Best Western representative will contact you (usually within 48 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 Best Western representative.


Additional information

- It needs to be said that Best Western 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;

- only one travel card er household per 30 day interval may be granted (this means that if you have two successful claims within a 30 days period,  you will receive the 100$ card only for the first one).

Free nights at Holiday Inn in Berlin, Germany

This is to be obtained using the Best Rate Guarantee of InterContinental Hotels (the group which includes the Holiday Inn brand).

We have already wrote a detailed article on how the Best Rate Guarantee works, see link below:

Best Rate Guarantee from Holiday Inn hotels

The value added of this post is that we found a website that usually provides lower rates for Holiday Inn Berlin City East.

This website is called Grand City Hotels, which is a hotel management company, managing over 100 hotels in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Cyprus and Spain.

Follow these three simple steps:
_________________________

1. Make a flexible reservation at Holiday Inn Berlin City East  (click on the hotel name to make the booking).

We underline the importance of making a refundable reservation on the Holiday Inn website, to avoid the risk that the Best Rate Guarantee does not work.

2. Check the rates on Grand City Hotels website, to make sure that they are lower than those from Holiday Inn website. Do not make any reservation with Grand City Hotels, only note down the rate, as you need it in step 3 below.

3. Fill in the online Best Rate Guarantee form:

Online form for claiming the IHG Best Price Guarantee

You should get a reply from a Holiday Inn representative within maximum 3 business days.
_________________________

If the claim is not approved for any reason, you may very easily cancel the reservation (as in step 1 above you made a flexible reservation).

For example, one night (8 March 2014) for a standard room, breakfast included, has a price of 125€ when booked directly on Holiday Inn Berlin City East website. However, Grand City Hotels offers the exactly same room at 116€, allowing you to make the claim from step 3 above.

Let us know how this worked for you.
