How can you book the best hotel for cheaper acomodation
and not be overcharged by travel agencies and online booking systems?
The majority of Andorra’s hotels (about 60%) are connected to the electronic reservation system booking.com or hotels.com. However, these systems work with hotels on the principle that they receive a 5 to 15% commission. Meaning, by booking a hotel in Andorra through these systems, you’re paying 5 – 15% more for a room.
In addition, all hotels in the world when working with tour operators (and tour operators use electronic reservation systems) sell 5-10% more rooms than the hotel actually has in reality. This is a typical worldwide practice that has developed historically for the convenience of the client who books fast, with the drawback that overpayments are made. The main reason why hotels continue to do this is because there is a 60-70% customer refusal rate. The actual price at which the hotel wants to sell the room is significantly lower.
In the ski season (or the summer season, when Andorra is visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists to see, for example, the stages of the Tour de France), in Andorra the occupancy of hotels can be unpredictable. Therefore, it is optimal to book a room directly through the hotel site to pay the lowest price and save yourself from an unpleasant surprise at the last moment when the tour operator has to put you in another hotel.
In Andorra’s 4* hotels there are English-speaking employees who will solve all any problems. However, if your hotel reservation was made through a tour operator in the UK, USA or another country, or through other intermediaries, the hotel can absolve itself of the responsibility for the “absence” of your room on the list for the date you requested. Therefore, you have to take up the problem directly with the employees of the tour operator through which you purchased the tour, which means, at a minimum, additional costs for international roaming.
Taking this into account, the optimal hotel booking is only ever directly through the hotel’s website.
