While traveling this summer, try these tips for a nice reduction in a hotel, motel or other overnight lodge. Arrive after 10PM for one of the lowest rates. Most people reserve ahead of time or arrive between 8 and 9PM for overnight lodging. When you arrive after those people are in for the night, the manager gives a discount. One other tip I learned is to ask for a RACK rate. This is the room that might not have all the amenities all the others has, but if your main idea is saving money, you will do without a TV, VCR, WiFi, and refrigerator for the night. Still another is to ask for a discount if you plan to stay more than one night.
