HotelsCombined is a Meta search engine which is designed to access the best rates from a variety of well-known travel sites from all around the world, all in the palm of your hand. The founders of HotelsCombined; Yury Shar, Brendon McQueen, and Michael Doubinski created the unit in 2005 in Sydney, Australia. The founders initially worked out of their homes with no significant financial capital. The website was launched after nine months of initial development. The website grew slowly, and the founders were able to hire one employee after a year of launch.
Today HotelsCombined has around 200 employees and a user base of approximately 17 million people each month. The site is accessible in 42 different languages and more than 220 countries. The network of HotelsCombined was formed through partnerships with many online travel agencies and hotel chains. The main function of HotelsCombined is to summarize and display information to users who need to find the best rates for hotels.
Our service does not offer coupons or promotional codes since HotelsCombined is a free service rather than a retail store. You can, however, subscribe with HotelsCombined to receive emails on the best deals and register for member-only benefits. Your searches, wish list and recently viewed searches will be saved to your profile. You can easily access them upon signing in from any device to your HotelsCombined account. There is a daily updated list of "Today's 20 Hottest Deals" which can be viewed from your profile after signing up. Signing up is very easy to do so, follow these steps:
• Upon opening the website, scroll to the middle of the page where you see a grey box that says “The hottest hotel deals. Straight to your inbox”.
• You will see an empty box where you have to enter your email address.
• Upon doing so, just press "Sign Up", and you're good to go.
The process is even easier on the mobile app where the sign up is done automatically upon opening the app after downloading it.
Over 400 million travellers trusted us to ?nd the best deal on their hotels last year. As the world’s leading hotel comparison website, efficient service to the customers is our prime concern. HotelsCombined is a service which aims to facilitate its users and to eradicate even the smallest inconvenience. Having said this, we are proud to stand by our customer policies, which are as follows.
HotelsCombined has the best price guarantee policy. The idea of this policy is that if you book a hotel on the HotelsCombined website and then find your hotel room online at a lower price, HotelsCombined will refund you the difference in price, provided you find a cheaper rate online. The conditions of this policy are that the lower price that you bring up must not be from the network of hotels in the HotelsCombined website and you must contact HotelsCombined within 24 hours of making your booking at HotelsCombined to be eligible for the best price guarantee policy.
Bear in mind that lower rates due to loyalty or membership discounts are not included in the criteria of "lower prices". This way, we ensure you pay the best price for your hotel room at the end of the day.
Using our website is quite easy due to the simple interface. Everything you need is right in front of you so booking your hotel has never been easier.
Upon opening the website, the first thing you see is a box that requires you to input some information regarding your hotel requirements. This box can be identified by the speech bubble that says “The best hotel deals from around the world. It’s our guarantee!” the first thing to input is your destination; upon doing so, you will be asked to enter the dates of your stay. You can choose an option that is for people who are unsure about their travel dates. Then you have to decide the number of people that will be staying at said hotel. Upon pressing the "search" button, you will be instantly taken to a page with a list of all possible hotels at your chosen destination. If you find a deal that you like, you can view that deal for further details. Each deal will show the price of staying at that hotel per night. After choosing a deal, you will be taken to the website offering the deal where you can reserve your rooms according to your needs. The room searching process is pretty much the same on the mobile app. Just as you open the app, you will see the input box for your destination, travel dates and number of people, after entering that information, just press “search” to find the best hotel room for you.
