Cookies! The chain runs Costco Travel , which offers everyday member savings on brand-name vacations.” Today, let’s find out exactly how much those savings can amount to and see if booking a car rental, vacation package, hotel or cruise with Costco Travel will actually save you money.

You can book your hotel, car, flight, and even your entertainment all on one website. For Hyatt, I did find the Costco rate to usually be a few dollars cheaper than an advanced purchase or the new Hyatt Gold Passport Member rate Note that the Member Discount rate did not show any time I searched for the Costco rate.

Don’t expect that sort of result every time, but it shows that Agoda, like all the rest of these hotel booking sites, is well worth checking for the best hotel deals. I searched for a variety of destinations around the world and Costco sometimes came out ahead of Travelocity and Expedia in addition to the prices found when booking directly.

These types of bookings can offer discounts, but many of the details are hidden until after the booking. I searched for the lowest prices that included unlimited miles. Best feature: Priceline’s Name Your Own Price” and Express Deal” features are major differentiators from other discount hotel sites.

Upgraded Points, LLC uses reasonable efforts to maintain accurate information on the site — and prior to applying for any credit card offers found on , all visitors should review other features of such credit cards including but not limited to interest rates, annual fees and transaction fees, and should determine the suitability of such credit cards considering their own individual financial position.

Deals are often limited to specific flights and change frequently, so check back regularly to avoid missing out on flights to your favorite destinations. Just be sure to compare prices to a hotel booking site that’s outside the Expedia family. Bottom Line: If you need a hotel in addition to your flight, booking both together through Hotwire can save you hundreds of dollars.

Unsurprisingly, Priceline’s prices are on par with the other online travel agencies (OTAs), and its results are largely focused on downtowns and tourist-friendly areas. See options in an interactive map view to ensure that the hotel you’re booking is exactly where you need it to be.

If you’re traveling to a destination outside of the U.S., offers are available during different times of the year and are usually based on weather. Your best bet would be to start with a travel search engine like Kayak or Google Flights. If you book a $500 flight, you will earn 5 Orbucks, which is worth $5 toward a hotel booking.
