Early Booker Discount Rates Now Available On www.hotel.de
Nürnberg, July, 21-2005 - hotel.de - the free of charge online hotel reservation service - now offers its early booking customers advance purchase discounts up to 20% in addition to the already reduced every-day rates on its platform.
While up to this point in time early booker specials were known rather from the package holidays industry, they have now arrived also in the city and business hotel sector with individual hotels or even hotel chains offering such discounts via www.hotel.de.
On hotel.de the hotel searcher finds early booker rates not only during low season but all year-round following the motto: Decide in time, save money. This however does not mean that the booking customer needs to decide 6 months prior to his scheduled travelling period. Starting with advance reservation terms of only one week, bookers can reduce their accommodation cost considerably. These low rates are clearly marked as such in hotel.de's results lists.
Also hotels have benefits from early bookings: capacities can be planned in advance as the customers pay in advance and can normally not cancel. The fact that hotels can make use of this new rate type without additional time effort explains its success. While up to now it was the big internationally operating hotel chains that placed such early booking offers via hotel.de - generating a megatrend within the hotel industry - today hotel.de offers also the smaller-type, owner-run hotels to participate and make such advance rates available for online bookings through hotel.de's own hotel reservation system myRES.
hotel.de-early bookers can "secure themselves" price advantages e.g. in the Golden Tulip Vienna All Suites Module by saving an additional 15%, in the Ramada Hotel in Mannheim or in the Hermitage in Tuscan Prato (-10%). Partially these hotels only need to be reserved 7 days in advance.
hotel.de is a leading online hotel reservation service. Via hotel.de its customers can book about 180,000 hotels and hotel packages worldwide at discount room rates. Hotels benefit from hotel.de as an additional high coverage sales channel distributing their offers and specials to the right target groups. hotel.de is the only hotel reservation service to unite all major central hotel booking engines (such as Pegasus, WorldRes, Trust) as well as its own reservation system myRES under one user interface.

The best rate of an individual hotel will be displayed for all customers to book the lowest rate available in nearly all locations and at any time. The numerous hotel package offers designed especially for hotel.de customers are also unique in character. hotel.de is operated by the German company hotel.de AG and has offices in both Hamm and Nuremberg. Between April 1998 and October 2001, hotel.de was a joint venture between Atrada Trading Network AG and the hotel marketing company Intergerma GmbH & Co.
