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.
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 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!
