To some, CheapOstay is just another one of those online travel agencies with gimmicky names. But are they reliable enough and can they really get cheap hotel rooms as the name claims?
Best Hotels Deals
Specifically, CheapOstay is an online hotels‘ only reservation agency. Though they are a part of a bigger Internet travel agency with offers on plane tickets and car rentals. There are many other online travel companies that provide the same services but CheapOstay is very good at providing better rates than their local competitors but not as well as their regional counterparts.
In a nutshell CheapOstay offers low discount hotel rates for accommodations in the United States and neighboring countries like Canada, South America and the islands off of the east coast of USA.
However, they do not seem to provide better rates or offer more choices of accommodations in Asia and Europe. That is because CheapOstay is a company based in the USA. Since they are headquartered there they are much more knowledgeable and specialized about the hotel market in the North and South American region. Though they are worth checking and comparing for room rates for any hotel in the world you are interested in staying at.
Hotel properties all over the world partner with CheapOstay because they will be much more easier to be found on the Internet. After all, 99.9% of all travelers today book their own hotel rooms on the world wide web. By partnering with CheapOstay, hotels have greater chances of having their properties noticed by travelers looking for budget hotels and luxury accommodations from New York to San Francisco.
In return, CheapOstay or any other hotel reservation agency receives a block of discounted room rates at which when a room is booked a part of the discount gets passed onto guests.
Best thing of all though is when hotels have some sort of fire sale where they immediately have to have a certain amount of rooms filled. Hotels will notify CheapOstay about these last minute hotel deals that are not advertised on their own website. Hotels will usually put up last minute hotel deals on CheapOstay because they need to meet some required room quota for the month to avoid losing money.
In the world of advertising and marketing it’s usually companies with such cheesy names that actually perform as advertised. In this case CheapOstay does provide cheaper rates for hotels.
