    Default HoteL RateS

    is it same if you're a walk-in client compared if you book online?

    i guess it depends from country to country.

    Do make some checks thru the hotel website and online travel agents for prices. You don't want to be caught without a room when you reach your destination without a reservation.

    I have given up hope on my usual travel agent as they charge me $50 more per room per night for something which I could book thru their website at $50 lesser. Service with a fee i guess.

    My experience with hotels in China is that you can bargain or ask for special rates by walking in.

    i cant speak for singapore, but my own experience for malaysia is normally you get the same or similar price if u call up the hotel directly, than what you do by booking through those internet sites..
    but ive never just turned up on the doorstep and asked how much..

    hi thobs

    in Singapore, the walk-in rates are certainly more expensive than on-line rates. Either you go to the hotel's own websites and search for their promotional rates or you can use these 2 websites which I personally use when I want to book rooms locally or in the region:


    Hope it helps and that you'll have a great time here.

    Look for weekend specials. Most will be sapped up as soon as they are released.
