I am Rajiv Sighamony and I love writing on topics that I find interesting.

Summary


Vacation packages are always cheaper with online hotel booking sites. The online sites throw the best available hotel accommodation for travelers. Some sites even run huge discount offers to pull travelers and make vacations cheaper.

Introduction


Choosing a hotel for destinations where a traveler knows the place will be far different from choosing an accommodation at an unknown place. A first time tourist should always choose hotel search engine site for browsing different hotels, and then finally selecting one. Those who are well acquainted with their destination should pick booking sites.

Hotel booking sites allows a traveler to select hotels and it helps him to lead his search to the hotel column and book his room. Online hotel bookings have changed the course of travel industry. Tourists feel more comfortable booking hotels through online sites. It saves time and enables them to grab discounts.

Hotels Combined

Hotels combined are a travel site and enables a traveler to book hotels on his chosen destination. The site saves time and effort. A traveler can easily choose a hotel, without having to spend time on each and every hotel sites. Hotels combined allow an individual to book hotels in the choice of his currency. The site has options for a traveler to select language of his choice, and that what makes the site unique.

However, Hotels Combined is a hotel search engine, and not a booking site, which means that it has to depend on hotels for offering prices to the visitors. A guest is transferred to a hotel’s site to make his final booking. The real big advantage associated with Hotels Combined is the opportunity to browse through the list of available hotels and choose the cheapest offer.

Hotels.com


Hotels.com is a hotel booking site and not a hotel search engine. A traveler will be able to choose and book hotels on the site. The site allows optional booking of condos and Bread and Breakfast inns. Hotels.com entails a diversity, which is rarely found on other booking sites. It offers incredible discounts on hotel bookings, depending upon the number of days booked on a hotel. It could be anywhere from $20 to $100 per booking.

However, there is no package services tied up with hotel bookings, such as an air travel booking or car rentals along with the hotel reservations.

Conclusion


Hotels Combined offers organized booking service. The site guides a traveler to choose his accommodation, and he can always search his way to find the lowest price possible. Budget travelers will find Hotels Combined handy and the site’s navigation surely makes the search very interesting.

Hotels.com, on the other hand, not just allows hotel bookings, but also offers different forms of accommodation bookings, such as condos and Bread and Breakfast inns bookings. What are more remarkable about Hotels.com are its low nightly charges, as compared to Hotels Combined. Tourists who are looking ahead for a long vacation should choose hotels.com for booking cheap accommodations, as there are more chances to grab discounts.
