    Two more tips:
    1) A well-connected travel agent can save some hotel dollars if they have contacts with the right chains at your destination.
    2) Use the phone and politely ask for a better rate. This can also work when booking at the front desk if you are on a road trip and decide to stop when/where you get tired of driving. I find this can save 15 to 20%, even at "ordinary" places like a Hampton Inn, for example.

    With that said, when we have an itinerary for our trip I book through my own OTA site. That way I can earn (save) by receiving commissions, ranging from 6-16%, depending on property.
