With Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years vacations coming up, it is important to be booking your luxury hotel stay at the cheapest possible price. You may well have already read my article about the free Club1Hotels membership (worth $675) which be available for just a few more weeks. If not, I will explain Club1Hotels for you. Club1Hotels are a Chicago based 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. This makes Club1Hotels cheaper for the same hotels on fully refundable rates.
If you are planning an imminent Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years trip away or any other travels over the next 12 months, it is worth signing up just to check out their pricing. On average you will see savings of $150 per night on a five star hotel, $120 on a four star hotel and $75 on a 3.5 star hotel. I researched the savings you can make by booking with Club1Hotels.
The reason I have written another article about Club1Hotels is that they are running two promotions currently on top of the usual savings they offer on hotels.
1. Book any hotel from Club1Hotels on or before 10/31/16 and receive a $100 of Restaurant.com electronic gift cards, Gift cards can be used at any of the 18,000 participating restaurants across the US. Restaurant.com will issue in $25.00, $50.00 or $100.00 denominations, if you use a $25.00 card you must spend $50.00, if you use a $50.00 card you must spend $100.00, and if you use a $100.00 gift card you must spend $200.00. (Most will want (4) $25.00 gift cards!) Club1Hotels issue them to members via email the day of arrival (as reservations can be cancelled).
2. Book 6-rooms with Club1Hotels on or before 10/31/16 and automatically receive a 1-year Standard Priority Pass Membership and gain access to over 1,300 airport clubs and VIP lounges globally with your sixth booking. This can be 6x 1-night room bookings or 6 multiple night room bookings.
$100 in Restaurant.com gift certificates can generally be purchased at less than face value and they contain restrictions but can also provide real value. A standard priority pass membership just lets you pay for each lounge visit, it doesn’t provide free lounge access.
It is worth noting that you can book car hire also at wholesale and cheaper rates on Club1Hotels so it is well worth joining and taking a look around.
