Club1Hotels is a private Global Luxury Hotel Club and the cheapest way to book 4, 4.5 and 5-star hotels. Most hotel booking sites (Expedia, Kayak, Trivago etc) take a cut of the rate that you pay for your stay. Club1Hotels offers you wholesale rates with NO mark up. They instead make their cut with their annual membership fee.
For a limited time Club1Hotels are giving Luxury Travel Diary readers a FREE 1-yr Beta Explorer Membership worth $675/£510. Join for free here (you can register from any country in the world).
This membership gives you wholesale rates at luxury hotels for a year.
I researched the savings you can make by booking with Club1Hotels. Take a 5 night stay in New York as an example. The Andaz 5th Avenue from 15-20th October 16 (5 nights) comes in at $2434.45 on Club1Hotels. The cheapest I can find on trivago is $3,353 so you will see a saving of almost $1000 from this 5-night booking with Club1Hotels.
5 nights (10-15 Nov) at London’s Shangri-La Hotel, The Shard comes in at $2,212 (£1,696) on Club1Hotels. The same 5 nights on trivago is £2,275. Club1Hotels is almost £600 cheaper than trivago.
Similar savings can be seen on car hire rates.
