Tips For Finding Good Deals
You often hear of people who got these amazing deals on their vacation. Have you ever wondered how they did that and if it is possible for you to get one of those awesome deals as well? That elusive ultimate deal is well within your grasp and we’re going to help you find it. Here are some great tips that can help you find that amazing deal too!
Tip #1 – Rent a Condo or Chalet Instead of Booking a Hotel
Renting chalets or condos give you lots of space at much lower prices!
How To: Find rental companies & choose chalets, condos, or other accommodations instead of hotels
Renting a chalet or condo is a great way to get the best deal on accommodations, especially in the Blue Mountain area. For a comparable price to a hotel room, you can book an entire two-bedroom condo for a week at prices that come out to as low as $150 per night! One bedroom condos, which can sleep up to 4-6 people, can cost even less!
This is perfect for families with children, friends who need more space, or couples who want a luxury vacation without breaking the bank. At Blue Mountain Lodges, we offer a wide variety of affordable accommodations, from one-two bedroom condos to entire 7,000 square foot homes. Check out our properties here!
Tip #2 – Call a Rental Company Directly and See If They Can Beat Prices You Find on Airbnb, Expedia, or VBRO
Calling rental companies to see if they offer price matching is a great way to find the very lowest price
How To: Call rental companies and ask for price matches
Many rental companies that offer alternative accommodations, such as condos, townhouses, cottages, or chalets, offer price match guarantees. When trying to find the best deals, it’s a good idea to call rental companies and ask if they offer price matches – will they beat prices you’re able to find on Airbnb, Expedia, VRBO, or other booking sites?
At Blue Mountain Lodges, we will match and beat any price you can find online by 10% if you call us directly! This will not only save your wallet, but will also save you from constantly wondering if you’ve got the best deal or if you should keep looking for something better.
Tip #3 – Book From a Third Party Site

How To: Check sites such as Trip Advisor for deals
According to Johnny Jet, contributor to Forbes.com, there are times when it is cheaper to book your hotel through a third party site online rather than booking directly with the hotel. This includes taking advantage of last minute bookings. It’s easier for a hotel to lower its price on a room that hasn’t been filled when they do it through a third party site such as TripAdvisor.
If you want to book on the same day or within a few days of your stay, then check out a third-party site. Priceline says that you could save up to 60% if you use their Express Deals and Hotwire also boasts savings up to 60% if you wait until the last minute to book.
Tip #4 – Book From a Rent-From-Owner Site
How To: Rent properties directly from owners using sites such as Airbnb
Renting directly from the owners of the properties themselves has become increasingly popular as it gives you very competitive rates and unique choices of accommodations. With the recent emergence of numerous rent from owner sites on the Internet, it is increasingly easier for you to find a great deal at a truly individual lodging. Some of the top Rent from Owner Sites include:

Tip #5 – Stay At a Local Hotel, Not a National Chain
Local hotels & accommodations can offer unique accommodations at lower prices
How To: Search online for local hotels or accommodation providers
Often locally owned and independent hotels are less expensive than national chains. Many people like to stay at chain hotels so that they know what to expect each time, however that uniformity usually comes with a higher price tag. According to Forbes.com local hotels will offer slightly better rates than their national counterparts in order to attract visitors who usually want the “familiar surroundings”.
Tip #6 – Call the Hotel Directly
How To: Instead of booking online, call the hotel and speak to someone directly
BusinessInsider.com suggests that it is often a better idea to try and call the hotel directly instead of using their 800 reservation number when booking your hotel room. Staff who are working right at the property often have more “wiggle room” when it comes to giving you a better deal or even being able to upgrade you to a nicer accommodation.
Tip #7 – Ask About Loyalty Discounts or Sign Up For Loyalty Programs
See if your hotel or accommodations offer rewards to repeat customers to get the best deals
How To: Search online or call hotels/accommodations and ask about loyalty programs
Many hotel chains have loyalty or points programs that can help you save on your bookings or get you free upgrades. Some local hotels want to reward their repeat customers as well and will offer discounts if you are a returning. Loyalty is just as important if not more to locally owned establishments as it is to larger corporations. Keep in mind that some local hotels will offer discounts for return visits that can equal what you save by collecting loyalty points.
Tips For Finding Great Vacation Packages
The following are some additional tips for getting the best prices on vacation packages or bundles. You can learn more about changing hotel prices & how to get the best deals in 2019 here!
Tip #1 – Book Travel Bundles From a Third Party Travel Site
Consider travel packages that bundle flights, rooms, and rental cars in one
If you live outside of Ontario and are planning a trip to the Blue Mountain Resort, you may want to book your transportation in conjunction with your accommodations. Many hotels offer travel packages that bundle flights, rooms, and rental cars to help you save money.
The disadvantage of this approach is that often some hotels will only partner with certain airlines. Third-party travel sites will, however, allow you to bundle any flight with any hotel. You have to keep in mind that these types of packages often are non-refundable, but if you are comfortable with that, then the savings can be considerable.
Tip #2 – Get Websites to Send You Their Deal
Shopping around for the best deals on hotels, rental cars and other travel perks can be quite time-consuming. MarketWatch suggests that you let the websites do that work for you. How? Simply go online to a few travel booking sites and fill in the steps required to book a car, etc but don’t go all the way to the end. Enter information like your name and email and choose to receive offers. All you have to do now is wait. Many sites will start to email you with offers that are significantly lower.
Tip #3 – Take Your Vacation During the Off-Season
Visiting during the spring or fall can help you get the best prices – and the weather is still great!
Because the Blue Mountain Resort is a truly four-season vacation destination, there really is no bad time to visit. Even though the spring and fall are beautiful times to come, they are still considered the off-season and as such, you can take advantage of additional savings on meals and entertainment attractions.

“Our unit was very comfortable for me, my husband, and daughter. The location was close to the village. My daughter loved the pool and how close it was to the unit. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We liked having less than a five-minute drive to the beach! We hope to go again next year!”
