9 Tips to Avoid Exorbitant Hotel Fees!

1) Read about all fees & charges beforehand

Read the hotel's website, check-in, & room restrictions. Check-in & enquire about fees. Ads and marketing may mention "daily resort costs" & "resort charge."

2) Call Ahead

Calling ahead and asking about packages, many of which include cost waivers for Wi-Fi and parking, is a common way to save fees.

3) Negotiate a Waiver

Some hotels will eliminate fees if you inform them at check-in that you will not be using the covered amenities, such as Wi-Fi, the gym, or the pool.

4) Avoid hotels with various fees

The most reliable method for avoiding hotel fees is to avoid hotels that impose them. Choose businesses that disclose all fees in advance.

5) Have loyalty program elite status

If you have achieved elite status in a hotel loyalty program, you may be exempt from certain fees, such as late check-out and internet fees.

6) Book with reward points

According to ThePointsGuy, some hotel chains or specific hotels within a chain will waive resort fees when booking with rewards points.

7) Park elsewhere to save parking fees

Non-valet parking has become increasingly expensive for hotels, especially in the suburbs. As a result, steer clear of their parking.

8) Avoid using minibar

The minibar may be costly. Therefore, avoid it. Do not eat or drink from the minibar unless you are desperate or willing to incur substantial expenses.

9) Avoid Wi-Fi Fees

Turn your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot if it can. Or Use a Starbucks or local coffee shop as your work away from home place.
