There is a plethora of price comparison sites on the web, but unlike most, one company offers users savings of 80% on hotel bookings.
The company, called TheHotelCompare.com was established in 2006 as a website to find cheap hotel deals. It partners with such names as Expedia, Hotels.com, Holiday Inn and Marriott.
The way TheHotelCompare.com competes with the many price comparison competitors is its extensive network of partners and its high page ranking in search engines.
Price comparison sites are big business. In the United Kingdom alone, they accounted for £750 to £950 million in 2005. They are designed as vertical search engines which filter results by price, features and other criteria. Price comparison sites display offers from many retailers, but do not make the sale directly.
The demand for booking hotels online continues to grow. In research conducted in May 2014, it was reported that on average, the revenue from travel bookings made on the internet each year over 6 years reached $148.3 million. Of that, 65% made their booking using a smartphone.
Hotel reservations made up 39% of online travel sales revenue in 2012.
In 2013, Forbes Magazine listed price comparison as number two in the must-do list to get the best prices in hotel reservation, but did warn that vacationers should check small print for any extras not included in the price quoted.
The Guardian reported in 2011 that “Generally, we found that going direct to the hotel’s own website failed to pay off – prices were the same as those charged by the big operators and higher than on the comparison sites.”
Search options include checking rates for specific travel dates, or simply looking up prices for hotels in a resort area.
Users can search by city, region, district or check rates for a specific hotel.
The service instantly collects and compares the booking prices of all the top
travel deal services on the internet like Expedia, Hotels.com and others.
