How to find the best deals on Gold Coast accommodation
The Gold Coast is a holidaymakers heaven. Warm and inviting waters, immaculate beaches and lush tropical rainforests make it a living paradise on Earth. But its popularity also makes it difficult to find the best deals.
Chances are that you have had enough of hotel comparison websites and hotel booking sites. Sure, at first glance those hotel room prices seem unbeatable. But more often than not, the best deals are to be had by booking direct with your chosen hotel.
With Surfers Paradise being one of the most iconic holiday destinations on the Gold Coast. We are going to look at how you can find the best Surfers Paradise accommodation ... that is exactly as advertised.
Raise your hand if you have ever booked a hotel via a hotel booking website? Now, we're not saying that this is a bad thing. But here's the deal. You see that enticing low price for the hotel you want to stay at? Don't assume that it is the lowest price available.
Your best bet is to head on over to the actual website of the hotel. The majority of hotels offer a price match guarantee. Yep! That rock bottom price you have seen can probably be had direct from the hotel. If you are a hotel loyalty member, all of those valuable points and perks are not available when you book through a third-party booking site.
Want to be guaranteed of the room that you book? You guessed it. Book it directly through the hotel. And if you want to avoid complications when changing reservations, the last thing you need is to be diverted to an outsourced call centre. Hotel comparison websites are great for comparing different hotels. But when it comes to the time to make a reservation. Direct is best.
Once you have narrowed down your search for Surfers Paradise accommodation the next step is to know what you want to do. Put together an itinerary for the activities you would like to do and the sights you want to see.
Why do this before you have booked your hotel? Simple. It helps you choose the best accommodation for reaching everything on your list. Nobody wants to spend hours trying to reach their destinations. Or worse, be stuck in the middle of nowhere and with nothing nearby.
If you are not sure about what there is to see and do in Surfers Paradise, we've got you covered.
