A Guide To Lastminute ‘Top Secret ®’ Hotels – And 10% Off Promo Code

by Continental Club on March 14, 2014  |  3 comments • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , ,

Lastminute NewThe concept of so-called ‘opaque’ hotel bookings – ones where the guest chooses a star rating and rough location, but doesn’t know the precise name of the hotel being offered – has been around for more than a few years now. The internet has undoubtedly fuelled growth in the genre, though ‘mystery tours’ have been popular since charabancs started chugging off into the unknown.

Travel website lastminute.com promotes their version of the ‘opaque’ booking through its Top Secret ® Hotels offers; the unidentified hotels appear in the lists of properties returned in a standard hotel search.

lastminute.com advertise that they list ‘four and five star hotels in 250 locations for up to 35% less than you’d pay anywhere else‘. Is the balance between certainty and saving stacked in the guest’s favour or not, though?

There’ll probably never be a definitive answer – indeed the opacity of the offer means that all the parties on the supply-side are completely in control of what they make available, at what price and described in ways that they’re free to amend at any time.

However, to encourage guests to give Top Secret ® Hotels a try, lastminute.com has introduced a promotional code offering 10% off this specific booking method. There are 4,000 opportunities to use the code, and bookings must be made by 23:59 on 31st March 2014.

This code continues to work into July 2014; we don’t have a new expiry date, so do continue trying to use it! Code now reported to be invalid.

To check availability and to book with the discount, visit lastminute.com/hotels and enter the code ‘trialtopsecret‘ (all lower case) when prompted.

by Continental Club on February 1, 2013  |  Leave a comment

Welcome to a new month and Continental Club’s latest round-up of travel discount codes and promotional offers. February is often a slightly quieter month than January for deals, and this is reflected in the expiry dates of quite a few of the offers listed below. Some are January offers that still have a few days to run; others are short-term promotions for just the first days of February.

We’ll keep a constant-watch however, and any new or extended deals will be posted as soon as we can throughout the month.

Updated 23rd February with new codes including £30 off flights at Opodo.

Expedia: 10% Off Hotel Bookings With Promotional Code

by Continental Club on November 13, 2012  |  Leave a comment

November is generally a quieter month for hotel booking offers, but online travel agent Expedia has a 10% off most hotel bookings code available until November 19th 2012.

The code is valid on prepaid rates, with the exception of rates at selected hotel group properties, for stays between January 1st 2013 and March 31st 2013.

The list of excluded brands can be found here – (in practice they are generally the chains that reward booking direct through their own loyalty programmes anyway).

As an agent sometimes holding its own rooms allocation, Expedia can be a good source of availability at properties which otherwise show sold-out. Although rates aren’t VAT-recoverable, the extra availability can make Expedia (and especially if the 10% applies to the hotel in question) relevant to businesses as well as personal travellers.

To access the code, to book and to check the terms and conditions, visit expedia.co.uk.
