Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or it’s your first time venturing across the UK on your own or with family and friends, you’ll want to make sure you don’t go over your travel budget. The key to saving money during a trip isn’t by going for the cheapest accommodation available, but getting big discounts at hotels. You should grab yourself a voucher code for Hotels.com when shopping at their store. They publish between 10-20 codes a month on their Hotels, so you should always be able to pay a little less.
Voucher codes give you access to best-value promos on hotel rooms, allowing you to book a room for less than the hotel’s published rate. This means you’ll get the same comfort and luxury for less without depriving yourself of other things you may have to spend on, such as good food, tours and souvenirs to take home. Here’s the 101 on voucher codes and how you can use these to get more discounts at UK hotels.
Where can I find voucher codes?
You will find discount coupons for hotels at voucher websites. Codes are listed according to category, so you’ll want to click on the category labelled Hotels and browse through the list of hotels offering promos. If you already have a hotel in mind, simply enter name of the hotel in the search box provided and see the available discount codes for that hotel.
You can also obtain discount codes via newsletters sent out by hotels, so make sure you sign up so you don’t miss a promo. If the hotel has an active presence on social media, it would be a good idea to follow their accounts as they would also post voucher codes that are available for a limited time.
Which voucher code should I pick?
The voucher code you should pick would depend on your travel plans. Make sure you check the validity and terms and conditions of applicable voucher codes—for instance, some discount codes may only apply for a weekday stay. Once you’ve picked out a code that will fit perfectly with your itinerary, click “Show code” or “Reveal code” and copy it to your clipboard.
Where do I enter the voucher code?
Depending on the terms and conditions of the discount coupon, you can either book through the hotel’s official website or through third-party booking sites. At the secure checkout or payment page (usually under the summary of the total amount) you will find a voucher code box where you can paste the voucher code you have. You can then click on “Apply voucher” or “Use voucher” to get the specified discount on your room rate. The booking page will then show the revised total amount you need to pay. Make sure the deduction has been reflected before submitting.
Things to check when using voucher codes
To take advantage of discounted room rates using voucher codes, make sure you check the following:
- Expiry date – Voucher codes have expiration dates. Some are valid only during the day they were advertised, while others have a 30-day validity. Make sure you use the voucher code within the validity period.
- Maximum usage – Some vouchers may only be used once, while others have a set number of usage unless stated otherwise in the terms and conditions.
- Minimum spend – Check the voucher to see if it specifies a minimum amount for it to be applicable. For instance, some hotel vouchers indicate a free night only if you book for three nights.
