Spoiler, to get the best deal at Four Seasons hotels, book via our luxury travel concierge. See what our clients say about us and how thrilled they are with the extra benefits we provide at no extra cost.
Here are the 10 best ways to get a deal at Four Seasons hotels and resorts:
1. Get Free Benefits With A Luxury Travel Agent
Our luxury travel concierge prices are identical to the offers on the Four Seasons website, but when you book with us, you will also benefit from our official Four Seasons partner agency perks, which are added in for free. We are not cheaper than FourSeasons.com, we are the same price, but the free perks we offer (outlined below) are massively valuable.
Book your next Four Seasons stay via our luxury travel concierge and the perks that we add into your stay are typically:
- Breakfast for two people per bedroom
- Food and beverage or spa credit of $100 USD per stay
- Upgrade of one category, based on availability at time of check-in (this usually excludes suites)
- Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability
- Complimentary basic Internet in all guest rooms
- Complimentary welcome gift
2. Book Special Offers
Four Seasons hotels and resorts are so popular that they often sell out in the high season, which means that they don’t need to discount their rooms during these popular periods. Outside of the high season, it is possible to get deals, and these special offers can be found on the Four Seasons website, within each individual hotel’s mini-site under “offers.”
3. Book Early
Four Seasons hotels and resorts run at a high occupancy rate. I regularly recommend clients to book their stays with our luxury travel concierge as soon as the rates for their ideal dates come out.
4. Don’t Book Last Minute
At the last minute, you are unlikely to be able to book the cheapest room, as these are usually the first rooms to sell out. In fact, you might be left paying considerably more for a premium room with wonderful views.
5. Stay Shorter
It sounds obvious when you say out loud, but booking a shorter stay will be cheaper overall than booking a long voyage.
6. Book Discounted Advance Purchase Rates
If you are booking in advance and are very sure of your dates, you can take advantage of Four Seasons discounted advance purchase rates. This is one of the few ways to get you a cheaper room. You must be sure of your dates, because once you have booked in, there are no refunds on advance purchase rates, so if you can’t make your stay, you won’t get your money back!.
Most Four Seasons advance purchase rates offer anywhere from 10-30% discount off the usual hotel room rates. An alternative discount offered at some hotels is the three nights for the price of two or the four nights for the price of three discount. Both of these discounts tend to be available outside the high season and can save you a considerable amount of money.
7. Take Advantage Of The Free Amenities
Upon arrival at your room, if you book via our luxury travel concierge, you will get a welcome gift. Be it a fruit bowl, a chocolate cake, or a chilled bottle of wine. Feel free to take the gift home if you don’t want to use it during your stay. Equally, you can pocket any toiletries that you don’t use. Don’t feel bad about taking unused bottles home if you don’t use them. You paid for them!
8. Promo Codes
There are special corporate promo discount codes, so if you are an employee of a company like Goldman Sachs, Bank Of America, IBM, or the government, you might be able to take advantage of these discounts, but these codes are not widely available to the general public. Besides, the deal may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. We suggest asking for a free quote so you can compare prices and benefits and get the full picture before booking.
9. Look Out For New Properties
Brilliant new Four Seasons are opening all the time. The new Four Seasons in Napa is an incredible property and offered a great soft opening discount. Four Seasons Los Cabos is another one that only recently opened and if you are heading to Bangkok, you simply must try the Four Seasons Bangkok.
10. Book In Low Season
You can even re-arrange your dates and plan to specifically target certain Four Seasons hotels when they are cheapest. One of the most expensive Four Seasons hotels in the world is also one of the cheapest just before it closes for the winter and just before it opens in the summer.
The hotel in question is the Grand Hotel Du Cap Ferrat. I have already detailed how to book a Four Seasons hotel at the cheapest rate and at the Grand Hotel Du Cap Ferrat, the discounted low season rate is perhaps discounted by as much as 70 or 80% from their high season rate. The dates you need to be looking at for the biggest discount are the end of March and the start of April and the end of October and the start of November. Granted, it might rain, and there might be a chilly wind, but the hotel bar, restaurant, room, etc., all remain the same at this stunning property. In my opinion, this is one of the best bargains at any Four Seasons hotel as this hotel is simply stunning.
In Hawaii, you should avoid the main holiday dates to get a good offer, and at the Four Seasons Hampshire, Sunday nights are usually the cheapest. Take Monday off work and grab yourself a great deal!
