If you’re a frequent work traveller who likes to keep fit, finding suitable facilities can be a real pain in the bum. Whenever a hotel isn’t equipped with a gym (a frequent occurrence when work is paying) you’re essentially forced between heading to an outside fitness centre or putting your exercise on hold. But there’s also another way — with a little ingenuity it’s possible to get a full workout inside your hotel room. This infographic explains how it’s done.
Hotel prices vary by season. If you’re planning a trip to the US, this rates breakdown by Priceonomics can help you choose the cheapest time.
According to the latest survey results from Hotels.com, Australian travellers are caring less and less about complimentary hotel Wi-Fi. In the company’s previous poll, 41 per cent of respondents said that free Wi-Fi was the most important factor when choosing a hotel. In 2015, this has dropped to just 26 per cent. We think some people need to reconsider their priorities.
Hotel rates fluctuate often, so it’s hard to know if you really got the best price when you booked. DreamCheaper solves this problem by searching for cheaper prices on the same room and date and then rebooking your hotel reservation.
Five-star hotels tend to provide the best food and bedding in beautiful surroundings. Unfortunately, they also have a rate to match. There are exceptions to the rule, however. The latest Hotels.com price index has revealed fourteen countries where Australians can score five-star hotel luxury for under $250 per night. If you want to travel in style without paying through the nose for it, these are the destinations to consider.
