If you book a hotel room through a third-party, whether it’s an online travel agency or a brick-and-mortar travel agency, the hotel has to pay a commission to them. This is why most hotel chains have a marketing concept called “Best Rate Guarantee” or “Best Price Guarantee”. This means that if you find a cheaper price on a third-party website, the hotel will match it and offer you free perks. These perks can be a voucher to use in the restaurant, a percentage off the amount you’ll pay, a room upgrade or a free night.
With more than 4,000 locations worldwide, the Best Western group has a generous offering. If you book a Best Western hotel online on any Best Western Internet site and find an equivalent offer on another website for the same hotel at a lower price within 24 hours, they will honor the lower rate and give you a $100 travel card to use on a future Best Western stay. The card will still be valid if the rate is below $100. And you can use this card on another BRG claim. With this method, you pay once and you can stay multiple times at Best Western hotels around the world. You might even make money out of this process.
