Some tips on How to get the Best Deal on Hotels in the San Francisco Bay Area

One of the biggest challenges when researching and booking a vacation is trying to find the best deal on accommodations. There are so many things to consider and of course, each traveler is different and has a set list of amenities that are necessary to ensure an enjoyable stay. Each traveler also has a set budget that they do not want to go over and will go to great lengths to find the best deal on their chosen property. San Francisco is an interesting city with an abundance of Bay hotels, motels and inns that are each different in its own way. Some are very cheap but don’t offer many amenities but any traveler can get a good deal on an expensive property that has all the amenities they need. Here are some tips on how to get the best deal on San Francisco Bay hotels:

1) Do a search online for San Francisco Bay hotels deals.

2) Use travel websites where you can type in your travel information and, in return, you will get a list of Bay hotels in  your price range.

3) Travel in the off-season, this is almost always guaranteed to get you a lower price.

4) If you collect air miles or loyalty points, cash them out for a discount on a Bay hotel room.

5) Go for an all inclusive vacation that includes your hotel stay and air fare. Sometimes these all-inclusive deals even include a rental car and other activities around the Bay area.

6) Call the hotels you would like to stay at and just outright ask for a deal. If the room is not being used otherwise during that time period, most times, the hotel would rather get some money for it rather than have an empty room that is making no money.

7) Ask friends and family who have traveled to San Francisco Bay for recommendations on the best and cheapest places to stay.

8) Sign up for travel newsletters. There are hundreds of sites out there that promote travel and help travelers find the best deals on everything travel-related including Bay hotels rooms. The bonus in signing up for these websites is that you will be among the first to know about any deals that come up. Some of these websites even give travelers the option to get alerts on their chosen destination. This means that after you let the company know what it is you are looking for, they will send you an email alert when a deal for that destination become available.

9) Sometimes it pays to book Bay hotels long in advance but the better deals are found when you book at the last minute. If you are worried about not finding a last minute deal, you can always book the best deal you find in advance and than cancel it in the allowed time if a better deal comes up.

San Francisco Bay hotels deals are out there and they are more common than you think. It will take a bit of research but it will be worth it when you see how much money you can save just by putting a bit more time and effort into your search.
