  1. Hi guys,

    My friends are looking for a hotel in Myrtle Beach, and there are so many sites to research with so many resorts and hotels, I would like to narrow it down to a couple sites. Which one would you recommend and what reasons?

    Can anyone have an idea please help me?

    Best regards
    Abelard Balthasar

    Hi Abelard, I usually start searching with hotel sites I have status with and get their best rate.
    I then do a search on Kayak, Expedia and Hotwire to see if there are any variances.
    Usually I can not find much of a difference, although the hotel site seems to be a few buck cheaper at times.

    So do I!

    And, if you want even more cash back from booking with them, check out http://beta.wandr.me/Travel-Rebates.aspx. I'm offering an additional 5% back on bookings made through the link there. Paid out online or by check quarterly, just like ebates or fatwallet, but with a focus on travel sites and better rates, too.

    If what you care about is finding decent deals then I'd skip the individual program sites as the initial focus. If you care about deals in a particular program that's fine but I find that they're rarely the good deals, especially internationally. The status isn't worth much to me at all.
