Things to consider when booking a hotel for travel around India

One of the most important considerations when planning a trip around India is the hotel you wish to stay in. The choice of the hotel depends on several factors, including the price, amenities, location, and accessibility. Here are some things you need to consider when looking for the best hotel for travelling around India.

Check the exact location

Check and enquire about the hotel location and places around. Booking websites mostly include a map, and if not, you may ask around your friends or family who have used the facility earlier. You can also look up the reviews of the hotel on the internet or call up the hotel helpdesk. Try and understand as much about the property as you can beforehand; who knows, you may just end up finding out something new and unique! 

Check for transport from the airport

It can usually get expensive to commute to and from airport to hotel. Most airports can be at quite a distance from the nearest hotel. Hence it is advisable to check for transport from the airport. Also, check whether your hotel offers a pick-up and drop-off to the airport. This can make things easier for you especially if you have an early-morning or a late-night flight.

Internet access 

Make sure that the hotel you choose has access to the internet. An internet connection at the hotel ensures that you can stay in touch with your loved ones. It also helps you stay abreast of your work developments and can be of great help during online meetings and webinars as well. If you are in doubt about the availability of the internet, call up the hotel reception or customer service. 

Sign up for reward programmes

This is often free, and at times, you may even be rewarded for opting in. The rewards may include free access to Wi-Fi, and added benefits such as better rooms, complimentary food and beverages and vouchers! If these are up for grabs, we suggest you go for it.

Ask for better rates

This is something you need to ask for. Try an open-ended approach by asking directly since hotel authorities may actually check and offer better rates. Also, you can check for hotel deals and packages available on the official site to get the most of your money.
