Some of the ways through which one can get good value for money, as far as accommodation is concerned, include the following:

The use of coupons

A number of sites offer coupons that can save you up to 75% of the cost of booking a room, so this is an option one should try when looking for cheap accommodation. Hotels that regularly offer such discounts include Hotel H2O, an aquatic-themed hotel at the heart of Manila. Quite a number of sites offer coupons for hotels in Manila, but it’s always wise to only get them from trustworthy ones. This way, they are likely to be valid and also offer significant discounts.

Your loyalty points

If you take part in loyalty programs such as frequent flyer programs, you can also redeem them for discount in hotel stays. To do this, you would need to check to find out if there are any hotels where you can redeem points from your loyalty program. A simple way to do this is by enquiring from the company running the loyalty program.

Booking in advance

Quite a number of hotels in Manila tend to change their rates according to demand. Moreover, just like airline tickets, you are likely to pay more if you book a room on short notice. Paying for one well in advance not only gives you peace of mind, but can also result in significant savings. Most quality hotels in Manila can accept online bookings, so this is not a big deal.

Group deals

If you are travelling as a group, you can get attractive discounts by taking advantage of group deals that hotels in Manila offer. Most of these deals require that the group comprise more than 4 people on average.

As an expatriate, you're going to find it very easy to find high quality hotel accommodation in the city. Manila has both world class and affordable accommodation, and with the use of these tips you're sure to get the best of both worlds.
