currently in trend

be seducedSince we are seduced by the tricks when browsing the offers, it doesnt even occur to us that you could also book directly on the hotels website. Sometimes this is cheaper. But those who have their favourite portal dont take it too seriously.
"Only 3 rooms available".
This notice is often simply displayed in the font colour red as a kind of warning notice. Whether this number is really true is questionable. Even if it is true, it only says that there are only 3 rooms available on one website, because each booking portal has a certain contingent. If it is fully booked on Booking, there are still free hotel rooms on Expedia or TUI. They want to get you to book quickly and rashly by making you react hastily. Actually, such business practices are forbidden, but you have seen this trick since time immemorial.
