Sometimes I am surprised that old tricks still work–to find lower airfares, hotel rates, and other travel deals.
I recently searched for a hotel for three nights. The rate was $169 per night.
However, when I searched one night at a time, the first night was $129 while the other two nights were $169.
Airfare searches often assign the highest fare to all passengers, even when a lower airfare is available for some of the passengers.
Yes, some online travel agent websites apply the highest rate across the entire reservation.
When booking lodging for multiple nights or buying airfares for multiple passengers, check rates for individual nights and passengers.
You will often save money.
