      Yeah, it’s an annual report that they do, but all of the advice that they give on their site is very helpful!

    Merci pour les petits astuces (mais qui s’avère être important je crois). Moi qui ai l’habitude de comparer à gauche et à droite les offres, pour mon prochain voyage, je vais essayer de m’abstenir à tes conseils pour voir si c’est vraiment efficace.

    All great tips – Checking sites like Groupon might reveal some deals as well for those people wanting to book ahead.

    Awesome tips! I’ve never heard of HotelChatter either. On top of hostels and guesthouses, I would also add alternative accommodation options. Vacation rentals (like AirBnB), house-sitting and home exchange can all be great options, especially for longer stays.

    You are absolutely right about the hotels. Ask them! They will usually find a lower rate if you ask. I myself have never paid the full rate for anywhere. Then again, maybe I’m just lucky.

    All excellent tips Val! I find hotels will often give you a discount if you contact them directly. They pay high commissions to booking sites like Expedia, so they’re willing to provide a discount and still come out better in the end if you book directly with them.
