Half-Off Hotel Sale and Europe Holiday Packages
Like I said in last week's article, I am now in the process of uncovering and analysing "good" transactions, along with the solution to your riddles. I decided this weeks to light my magnifier on Expedias Half Off Hotel Sal. Discounts are available at more than 125 participant establishments for four or more overnight stay.
Booking is required until September 2 and travelling until September 30, 2008. Notice the first thing I did is that most of the hotels identified in the shop are mega-chains - era Inn, Howard Johnson and such - and the selection for each town is quite scarce. A number of well-liked tourist locations have no half measures to offer, even New Yorkity.
Orbitz and Expedia rates were cross-referenced for four September days at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas (rooms begin at $119 per room per overnight from the hotel's website for these dates). A $48 room costs an average of 58 per room or a sum of $194. 30, with Expedia's half-off sell as it costs $58. 96 per room or a sum of $280.
Remember, Expedia also gives you $75 for throttle, which you should use on the total rebate. I would give this business a general thumbs-up, especially if you are planning on spending somewhere more than four overnight this September. First, you were right to consider a holiday packet. There are several suppliers offering rebates on Paris and London Downtown Getways, and often you can't be beaten the combined air-and-hotel-rates.
One thing I will say, however, is that you will probably have to leave in the low seasons if you really want to do that. A visit to Europe in autumn and winters may be a little cooler, but the amount you are saving and the amount you are avoiding will more than make up for the shortage of sunshine.
At the beginning of November I used this information to charge packages through two different suppliers for trips (note: all rates are inclusive of taxes and fees). First, EuropeASAP's 6-night multi-city tour begins at $2,718 for two ($1,359 per person) and involves a roundtrip from New York Capital, three overnight stays in a simple urban resort, a plane to Paris and a Continental breakfasts every mornings.
Booking before September 8th. Initially, go-today.coms packages starting at $2,561 for two ($1,280. 65 per person) and also includes round-trip fare from New York, six overnight stays in a budget hotel in every town and transport in between. While you can decide whether you want to enhance the value of the accommodation option or begin the activity and transport from one of the two websites, the cost increases with each other.
These two packages make it simple to schedule a journey with very little hassle, but you may want to do some research yourself before book. In order to be a little devils advocates, let's see how much it would take to do without the pack and create your own travelroute.
For the same data I could find airfares from New York to London and back to New York starting at $1,242 ($621 per person). London-Paris departures begin at $100 ($50 per person). TCO would be $1,342 ($671 per person), which means you can pay $1,219 for a three night stay in any town before you reach the cheapest one.
