We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.
If you are reading this blog you most likely love to travel. Everyone I know wants to travel for as long as possible, meaning they want to be able to travel as cheap as possible. We are all looking for ways to save money on our travels so I have compiled a list of ways to save money on accommodation with Booking.com.

I recently got an email from Booking.com (because I am part of their newsletter since I signed up.) This is pretty simple, when you sign up to get emails from a company they send you special discounts to your inbox. This leads on to my next money saving tip… Secret deals

The most recent money saver from Booking.com was cheap hotels at the last minute. Some of these had a whopping 67% off, though the most common reduction was about 50%. You can check out my post about Booking.coms secret hotel deals to find out how to access them.
£20 off a £40 stay
I am not sure how long this link will stay active but I have a link here which takes you to the Booking.com site and after a few seconds a green bar pops up along the bottom to offer you £20 off a £40 stay.

This one is a two-for-one kinda tip. I can refer you, earning you £15 when you sign up. You can do that by clicking the image below or clicking here.
Refer your friends
The cool part is you can then generate your own referral link, share it with your friends and family and when they sign up they get £15, and so do you. You can potentially earn enough to put yourself. The limit at this time is to earn £150, so ten referrals. Hopefully they make that unlimited in the future.

Become a Genius member
Genius membership is free. You earn it by booking 5 different trips with Booking.com. You then earn money off selected stays, you can get early check in or late check out (sometimes.) This is fantastic because likely you can rack up those 5 bookings pretty quickly, I got all of mine within one trip to Thailand.
Swap Lonely Plant for Booking.com guides
So this tip won’t offer you any ways to save money on accommodation but it will save you money on books, and maybe even heavy baggage fees!
When you book to stay somewhere, lets use Bangkok as an example, Booking.com give you a free download guide about the area. By using these you can save money on much more expensive books like the Lonely Planet guides. Plus these handy PDFs take up no room at all compared to a big bulky book. All you need is a phone and the guide is at your fingertips. Plus every new booking offers a new guide, so changing plans doesn’t mean you are left in the dark about your next adventure.
