If you were ever going to take advice from somebody on money-saving matters, then Mr Lewis is the chap.
I watched a program last night and part of the program was dedicated to tips on how to get the cheapest hotels and rooms. As usual, Martin has a trick or two up his sleeve. I’m not too sure the Hotels and other tourist accommodation suppliers would be happy about it though.
What Martin says, is this; If you have booked a hotel or room or whatever and it has a free cancellation clause, then check out the prices of hotels in the area you are going. If you find one that is cheaper than the hotel or rooms you have booked. Cancel and rebook at a cheaper rate.
The prices of hotels and accommodation are not static as they have to go with supply and demand. If the demand is high, the prices are high. However; if the demand is not as high as expected, hotels, rooms and other types of tourist accommodations will lower the prices.
Here are martins tips to get cheap deals, hotels and rooms. I’m sure the Costa del Sol is no different to anywhere else when it comes to business matters.
