LONDON, England – Hotel occupancy is up in some places and down in others. When you see accommodations being offered at sale prices and with discounts, that generally means, a room with a lesser-paying customer is better than no customer at all. So this summer, bargain-hunting travelers may want to look at staying in a hostel, where it is generally not only less expensive than a typical hotel, but where there are sales and discounts to make the most spendthrift of travelers happy.
HostelBookers launched its big summer sale campaign today, offering a vast range of properties across 28 top destinations worldwide at discounted prices many with over 20 percent off their normal rates!
To take advantage of this offer customers need to place a booking by July 31, 2010 and complete travel booking by September 30.
The sale includes properties in some of the most popular destinations worldwide. Travelers can now find budget accommodation with New York City hostels ( http://www.hostelbookers.com/hostels/usa/new-york-city/ ) such as Days Inn, located just 10-15 minutes to Midtown New York City.
