One of my favorite hotel booking sites recently has been Travel Pony.  They have sometimes had rates much better than I was able to access on other sites – including directly from the hotel!  I have had no issues with the multiple stays I have booked through them – including this suite at the Andaz 5th Avenue as shown below!   I’ve also cancelled some stays that were refundable with no issues, so all in all I have no complaints!

Today they are making their often very low prices 10%-45% lower to those who use the code TPSAVINGS at checkout!  This does not stack with the $35 off they give new customers who are referred by a current member and make a reservation of $200 or more, but it does stack with using referral credits you have earned via referring others.  That is my referral link, you can feel free to leave your own referral code in the comments.

Travel Pony

In my searches this morning it is no surprise that the 10% discount is the one most common to come up, but even that is helpful in taking an already low hotel price even lower.  I usually go and rebook by Travel Pony reservations to an even lower amount when these codes occasionally come up, though I have never seen anything higher than a 10% code.  I did see some hotels discounted 20% – 30%, but didn’t run across any higher discounts on my searches.

Travel Pony Discount

Travel Pony can be pretty helpful with all sorts of hotels, but I have found them particularly helpful with airport hotel bookings.  As an example I checked the rates at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare for October 17th and found the all-in price on Travel Pony to be $83 after tax and the 10% discount.  The lowest price I found elsewhere was about $96 all-in via getaroom.com.  The lowest price Hyatt had was the My Elite Rate at $125 all-in.  This was just one example, but in this case Travel Pony was the lowest price I could find by $13, which is a decent percentage cheaper when you are talking about an $83 hotel room.  Though finding the rate that much lower on getaroom.com than on Hyatt.com of course made my head scream Hyatt Best Rate Guarantee, so potentially you could get 20% off that rate and book via Hyatt directly – read this post for details on that process. 

Remember that booking via third party sites like Travel Pony likely means you are forgoing earning hotel points and elite status credits, so factor that into the overall equation.  Happy hotel booking!

    Heads up MP… this is actually a devaluation of the brand. If you don’t use the TPSAVINGS code, you don’t get ANY savings from retail. So the TPSAVINGS code is just giving you the discount you otherwise would have gotten. Nothing to see here…

    @stvr – that’s what i’m seeing as well. Compared to the specific rate on a booking I made a few days ago (and have been monitoring daily since then for any price changes), they have increased the rate by 7% today to quote a 15% discount. But the 15% discount they quote is only being applied to one night of a 3 night stay. At the end of they day, my total was $1262 a few days ago after the 7% off code, but is now $1420 today after TPSAVINGS code which claims to give 15% off. I’m not saying this can’t be a good deal, but be sure to shop around.

    Your screen grab shows all the TravelPony rates matching Expedia/other OTAs…

    For sure, always shop around. No site will always be the best. The discount % is not shown in the screen grab…you have to add the discount code to get that % off at checkout. The one reservation I looked into the closest was the Hyatt Regency O’Hare on 10/17 and the rate was a chunk better than the OTAs and even a decent % better than the closest other hotel discount site. I’m sure this won’t always be the case, but it was for the hotel I was shopping around for.
