Introducing HotelSlash, a brand new site that offers an easier, faster way to save on a hotel.
Who in their right mind launches a travel business during a pandemic? Folks who know a thing or two about what travelers need during tough times.
You might say we are suckers for a challenge. We launched AutoSlash in 2010, just as the country was just beginning to come out of the Great Recession. Money was tight for a lot of folks, but we thought it was the perfect time to help travelers get the best possible deal on car rentals. Over the next 10 years, we helped our customers save more than $50 million.
A New Way to Save on Travel
Now, in the midst of a pandemic, we’re launching HotelSlash with the aim to do for hotels what we did for car rentals — and we can think of no more perfect time to help travelers save money.
As our country reopens from the COVID-19 lockdowns, hotels are under pressure like never before to offer travelers flexible booking terms. Reduced demand and lower occupancy mean hotels are more aggressive with deals, and prices are likely to be volatile for the foreseeable future. HotelSlash is exactly the right service to meet this moment. We are committed to helping you take advantage of these exceptional circumstances and help you get the best deal possible every time.
How Does HotelSlash Work?
Just like car rental prices, hotel rates go up and down. The trick is to strike at the right time and lock in the lowest price.
Most people make a hotel reservation and then leave it alone, which is the same as leaving money on the table. If you book a refundable rate and the price drops, you can cancel your reservation and rebook at the lower rate. But who has time to watch hotel rates all day?
That’s where HotelSlash comes in. We’ll track your hotel reservation for free and alert you when there is a price drop so you can cancel and rebook. It’s as simple as that.
Even better, we won’t give up. We’ll continue to track your reservation right up until the last moment. That’s how to ensure that you never pay more than you have to. If the price drops once, we will notify you. If it drops five more times, or 25 more times, we’ll let you know, so you can always take advantage of the lower rate.
How to Get Started
HotelSlash is currently in closed beta exclusively for AutoSlash customers. But we expect to launch to the general public in the coming months. If you want to be the first to know when we go live, visit HotelSlash.com and add your email to our list.
Want to save on your next hotel stay without lifting a finger? Give us a try. We promise to make it worth your while.
