ALWAYS check those hotel reservations!

I know I’ve covered this several times in the past, but I feel the need to do so again. On the way back from Hong Kong in a couple of weeks, we have a quick overnight in Hong Kong. We’re staying at the SkyCity Marriott, which we originally booked for around $200USD. About two weeks ago the rate dropped to $150USD, so I “repriced” by changing the reservation to the lower rate. Now I checked the rate again, and it’s down to $110USD! Nothing beats saving money just for a few clicks, so always check those reservations to see if the price drops.

This is also another reason to always book refundable rates, at least if you’re booking way in advance. The rate often goes down, but once you’re locked in with an advanced purchase rate you can’t reprice.

I’m hoping to save even more money with the “Great Asia 3-Day Sale,” so I’ll report back.
