How to Get the Best Hotel Discounts

Pratunam has a fair share of comfortable and clean budget accommodations. But you do get what you pay for. So keep that in mind. Yet many accommodations in Pratunam are still very popular so many hotels in the area try to keep their rates as low as possible to keep up with the competition. Which is good news for tourists.

But it is possible to get cheaper room rates published by the hotel. And no it does not involve bribing a hotel staff.

Hotels throughout the world use the services of online hotel booking agencies to help fill rooms that they themselves cannot. Since there is so many hotels in the area to compete against, hotels have a hard time reaching their occupancy quota.

One of the biggest world wide hotel agencies that I use is Agoda.com. Their advantage is that they have an office in Bangkok so they are always on top of the best discount hotels. It is through their website that you can find discounted unpublished rates for hotels in Pratunam or anywhere else in Thailand.

      A good selection. Thank you. Still too pricey for me though. Easier to commute in for the shopping and still save money.
