With my new job I have been traveling to Jersey for several days every week. This inevitably involves booking a hotel room to stay in. Initially I started looking online for booking rooms but it soon became apparent that there are quite a few hotels that don’t have online booking. So I started phoning hotels.
For the past two weeks now I have found rooms in hotels which have had online booking but which said that the hotel was full on the night that I wanted to stay. Also, the hotel I stayed in last week was £30 cheaper when I made the reservation than the price that is listed on the website.
Quite how they get the discrepancy between the systems is any ones guess. I just don’t want to be there when it goes the other way and the online booking system thinks there is a free room when in reality there isn’t.
