Link List #2 Goes to http://bestrateguarantee.blogspot.com/ or BRG site for the latest in available Best Rate Guarantees for free hotel rooms. As explained in an earlier Blog entry, the Triprewards program offers the absolute best online rate guarantee. They basically guarantee a free night the first night of your stay if you book through the Triprewards site, and then find a lower price for the exact room type and number of occupants from a competing online website. The claims process is easy and quick by filling out an online form and submitting to the Triprewards guarantee department. You’ll usually here if your claim has been granted in 4 hours. Does it work? Absolutely. Here is my best rate guarantee story.
Two years ago the BUG, my bride, had shoulder surgery requiring her to get plenty of rest. We were facing the trip from Michigan to South Carolina with our car for the winter and decided to take it slow and easy. Five days to be exact. Day one Traverse City to Flint, Michigan and the Wingate hotel, free night. Day two Flint to Lexington, Kentucky and the Ramada Inn Express, free nightt. Third day Lexington to Asheville, North Carolina, Ramada by the Biltmore Estate (a great day trip) free night. Day four Asheville to Columbia, South Carolina and the Days Inn, free night and the last day Columbia to Hilton Head Island, SC, free night as our place was not ready yet.
I had found a competing website that had lowered the rates on each room by .99 per night. The Triprewards site listed rooms at $89.99 and http://hotelsatanywhere.com/ would list the same hotel for $89.00. All five claims were approved.
