about 3 minutes

our service. If you make a reservation at the hotel, you will be charged on average 10% to 50% more.
When do you check availability?
We check availability only at the point of making a reservation. If
the hotel of your choice is not available AND you give us a permission (see reservation form) to reserve another hotel at comparable price and standard, we will do so. Please remember that by combining
"availability check" and "reservation" into a one step, we cut on our cost of operations and thus we can offer you much cheaper prices.

Yes. Unless noted otherwise, all taxes and breakfast are included.

No. You will find that our prices are already heavily discounted; consequently, we can not offer any additional discounts.

All prices in our service are per room,
not per person. For example, a price for a single means a room with one person, for a double means a room with 2 persons, etc.

For two reasons. First,
we have teamed up with local travel agencies who have negotiated these favorable rates. Second, we use the internet to do all the transactions which cuts our cost considerably.
