Long gone are the days of travel agents, tedious bookings, and overpriced services. While travelers have been booking luxury travel online for years now, there are now faster, easier, and more personalized ways to instantly book the best travel deals, all at the push of a button. Here are the top 6 ways to get a deal on a luxury hotel.
1. SnapTravel: Facebook has over 1.7 billion users, so it seems like the smart (and obvious) decision for travel companies to head to where the users are. While travelers have been able to book their vacations and business stays via apps and websites for some time, the privilege of having a concierge do it for you has only been reserved for those that wish to fork over their hard earned cash. SnapTravelis a newcomer to the travel world and they are promising the best prices on rooms personally negotiated by their team of experts. Simply Facebook messenger, SMS, or message SnapTravel through Slack and your personal travel concierge will find you the best price in the city of your choice.
Travelers have heard the “best price” claim before and SnapTravel sounded too good to be true so I decided to have my hand at it. I was interested in having a luxurious and romantic weekend in the Soho/Tribeca area of New York City. SnapTravel offered me $249/night for a 5-star hotel in the Soho/Tribeca area. Booking.com offered me $299/night for the same hotel. Hotels.com also offered me $299/night for the same hotel. By booking through SnapTravel, I saved $100 for my trip!
