Today has been one of those days where I’m having problems getting to work. I’ve had computer problems, which I’m thankful to say are resolved now. And tonight is our group’s Christmas party, so I need to be focused and get things done quickly.
We are going to talk about getting the most bang for your buck. You may think you would do best to stay in the cheapest hotel you can. But in reality, you should probably consider getting in touch with some of the nicer hotels and see what discounts they have. Ask if they have special rates available. You never know what you may be able to qualify for. Nicer hotels are going to have nicer amenities and better service.
You may also want to consider getting a room that has its own kitchenette. Cooking may not be your favorite thing, but eating out for every single meal is going to cost you a pretty penny. I know a lot of family will get food everyone can eat for breakfast and lunch and then then eat dinners out. Having a kitchen in your room will make it easier to do takeout which is also often less expensive than going to a sit down restaurant.
Making your plans well in advance can usually save you money… I am going to be honest, as a travel agent I get all kinds of travel deals through e-mail. My problem is, I have no idea what people are interested in. I’m never sure if anyone I’m working with would be interested in these deals .. Anyway, I would love to hear about your travel interests.
