HotelSlash, the latest from the team behind AutoSlash — a platform designed to find discounts on car rentals — is now available to the public.
Here’s everything you need to know about this exciting new travel-booking platform.
How HotelSlash Works
HotelSlash is a members-only service that offers discounts at around 1 million hotel properties around the world. These deals are not available to the general public.
Through its algorithm, the site searches the internet to find you a better deal — or a better value — on your hotel stays. For example, HotelSlash may find you the same room at a lower rate, the same room but with additional amenities such as complimentary breakfast, or an upgrade for a discounted price, adding value to a stay you’ve already booked.
The service is straightforward and easy to use. After you’ve booked your refundable room either directly on HotelSlash’s website or through another site, HotelSlash will continue to scour the internet to find you a better deal.
If it finds a better rate, you’ll be notified of it, along with instructions on how to rebook your hotel room.
HotelSlash co-founder and CEO Jonathan Weinberg said in a statement, “It’s like price protection for your hotel reservation,” adding that “early users of the service saved an average of up to 30% on their hotel rates.”
A Subscription-based Platform
HotelSlash will cost members $29.95 per year, a sum that the company believes customers will earn back in savings from their first few bookings. It also offers a “no-questions-asked, 100% refund guarantee.”
The company has a proven track record of saving customers money. After all, its flagship product, AutoSlash, has saved customers over $100 million so far in rental car reservations, according to the company.
HotelSlash is currently offering a free introductory offer that allows new members to try out the service for themselves, without having to enter payment details.
HotelSlash is the latest hotel-booking platform designed to save members money by finding better rates for hotel rooms after they’ve been booked, more amenities for the same rate, or discounted upgrades.
Considering the parent company’s track record with AutoSlash, we believe this is a promising addition that should save travelers money, despite the modest annual fee for the service.
