Lots of name brand hotels offer their very lowest rates through blind bidding sites like Hotwire and Priceline – where you don’t know the name of the hotel until you’ve completed a non-refundable booking. Now, that same lowest rate inventory is available without the crapshoot: Snap Travel skirts the name disclosure prohibition by delivering the hotel rate display via SMS or Facebook Messenger. Start your request on their website, receive a response on messenger or by txt, and click through for a full listing of available hotels – with their names and comparison prices from Hotels.com. Even better, the rates are mostly refundable — often up to 24 hours before check-in.
Snap Travel‘s rates make a mockery of the big hotel chains’ best rate guarantees – I can guarantee you that if a Hilton, Marriott or Hyatt hotel shows up on Snap Travel, the rate is lower than you’ll find on the hotel’s own website. But I’ve had very little success in getting those rate guarantees honored, so you’ll likely have to choose between your frequent guest benefits and the lower rate.
