      Some good advice there point2make. Much of it can depend upon the time that you're planning to make the booking aswell, for example, last minute accommodation prices can come a lot cheaper than booking months in advance. It does depend on the circumstances too.

      Good hub...excellent information thanks. I would add that it is important to shop around and remember not all booking sites are equal. I returned from a trip to Boston, Ma this week. I have often used online sites to book rooms but this time I saved $30 a night by booking directly with the hotel myself. Other times , during my travels, online booking was cheaper. There is a lot of choices out there and doing your homework can save you a lot of money and hassle. Great hub...voted up!
