Cheap Glasgow Accommodation

Our experience here at Hotels.tv is that clients want value for money in their choice of Glasgow hotel. In these times of financial struggles gone are the days of 5* hotel rooms being sought at rack rates (the maximum a hotel would ever charge a customer) – more often than not discerning hotel bookers will trawl the internet looking for discounted room rates – as many as 25 hotel booking websites will show prices for the most popular hotels! The industry standard has been that “rate parity” exists – in other words all hotel booking websites MUST display the same room rates, discounted or not, so the potential customers are actually (in theory) wasting their time looking at many sites, as all they’ll see is the same room rate for any given hotel!

So what are the factors that will make clients choose a particular hotel booking website over another? Ease of booking? Choice? Pictures? Whatever it is, customer loyalty is paramount to providers such as www.hotels.tv. We consider our strengths and unique selling points to be:

- Presenter-led video reviews of hotels

- Easy to use website

- Payment on departure as standard – no up-front fees

- We add value to bookings wg=hen possible – we always ask the hotel for upgrades or additional services when bookings are made

- We can help clients book via the website, by email, by phone or by text

We have more knowledge of this market than anyone else and can help you find the right hotel, in the right location, at the right price for your budget.
