    *** TIP *** Stay at hotels for much less using ibidlow online & Hotwire resources.

    I was'nt going to post this but thought it could be very useful for others.
    You need to do some work to find the right hotel cheaper,but these are the tools i used and have booked through Hotwire ( it's a USA site,but you get more for your £1.00)
    1st Look at ibidlow instructions and compare with Hotwire,basically Hotwire does'nt tell you which hotels your booking until after you book,but ibidlow is the tool to use to find the name of hotel as i did.

    I got a 5* hotel in Amsterdam, saving about 45% on the cheapest price out there.
    Got comfirmation email fine and all has went through with no problems.
    Will add a few other site that can also be helpful,but as I said only works if your willing to put in a wee bit of research/work.

    Hope this helps someone out there.

    After you reserve through Hotwire,you can contact hotel, as I did and ask for any info you need ie request view etc
    The hotel i booked anwered straight away too.


    This is the hotel I got for under £199 for 2 nights for 2 people.....when you compare prices,you'll see what you can save. :thumbsup:

    Hey Hotscot, thanks for this feedback.

    Just to add that ]iBidlow also provides Priceline hotel names and is still in early beta stage, and more capabilities would be added soon, such as 'price prediction' and full comparison between Hotwire/Priceline/Market comparison per hotel.

    If you guys have any comments or tips, we'd love to hear them!

    Thanks,

    Oz @iBidlow.com team

    Worth knowing about. Thanks

    Thanks for the heads up Hotscot, prone to a few days away now and then, not sure I've got my head around it but I'll look into the links :thumbsup:

    Welcome to HUKD, I found your link at Flyertalk and thought it's a good resource site to use along side Hotwire.
    I know it's a new site and is a working progress, thanks to your site I saved a few £'s. :thumbsup:
    Hopefully helpful to other hukd'ers too......

    Basically,you in put your needs in Ibidlow (dates etc) then it shows you whats available,then opens up Hotwire site too to compare,
    then you narrow down areas,then look at the amenities,generally if they match on Hotwire,this should be the hotel named on Ibidlow.

    Hotwire = cheap hotels,but does'nt name the hotel till after you book.

    Ibidlow = a resource site to help you find the name of hotel on Hotwire before you book.
