Take Advantage of Early-Booking Hotel Deals
Being certain about your summer-vacation dates has its benefits. Hotels and resorts often include discounts for early booking, generally 10 to 25 percent off but sometimes much more. These advanced rates offer big savings; however, you may have to pay in full at the time of booking, leave a nonrefundable deposit to hold the reservation, or both. So these rates are best if you've already booked your transportation and know that canceling or changing dates is not an option. If you want to see the biggest possible savings, book through Tingo; every time the price drops for your hotel room, Tingo will automatically rebook you at the lower rate and refund the difference. This means that the earlier you book, the more likely you are to save.
