Travellala.com displays prices inclusive of taxes and fees for each room type based on your search and this is probably why some of our prices appear to be more expensive as compared to other OTAs. Read on to find out how examining the booking conditions can save you up to 32%, and up to 45% if you’re a Travellala.com member.
In this example, we searched for room availability for 2 adults at Hilton Singapore from 13 Feb to 14 Feb 2016 and Travellala.com’s total price per night per room was S$318.41, inclusive of taxes and fees.
Then we used a meta-search engine, Compares.SG, to find the cheapest price available for Hilton Singapore based on the same search inputs and one of the cheapest prices we found was S$280 from Expedia.
Next, we used our Quick Book feature to list the room types for our search and found out that our price, S$318.41, was for a Double Hilton Deluxe Room and it included a breakfast for 2 adults.
Then we also looked into our booking conditions and found out that we allowed our customers to cancel the booking up to one week before check-in date and so, this is a refundable booking.
Now, let’s take a look at Expedia’s best price for Hilton Singapore and very quickly, we found out that the cheapest price offered was for a King Hilton, Deluxe Room without breakfast and the booking was also non-refundable.
The Expedia price for a Hilton Deluxe Room with breakfast is S$353.11, which was non-refundable and it’s S$34.70 higher than Travellala’s refundable price.
So, if we look at the price which was closest to Travellala’s booking conditions, it would be S$ S$470.80
If you book with Travellala, you only need to pay S$318.41, which gives you a saving of S$152.39 (~32.4% off)! The only difference is Expedia allowed you to cancel your booking up to one day before check-in date while Travellala allowed you to cancel up to one week before check-in date.
