Visitors Guide To Venice

The first rule a tourist needs to know about accommodation in Venice, Italy is that dealing directly with the hotels themselves will give you much better rates than would be possible if you booked through a middleman or agent. Fortunately, every major (and most minor) hotels and staying establishments in Venice have put up web sites. Use these to do some comparison-shopping and get the best rate.

If you are willing to put up with a little bit of uncertainty, you could also choose to book into a hotel at short notice against a cancellation. All hotels announce these vacancies on their websites. So as you get out of Marco Polo airport or leave you train, head for a cyber café and do a quick search.

When you find a last minute vacancy, you can book on the spot and you have a room. You can get some really good rates this way. For example a double bed economy that can cost you as much as € 139 on regular bookings can be had for only €49 against a cancellation on the same day. Saving € 90 per night is not something you can scoff at especially if you are traveling without children to accompany you and don’t mind a little additional work. Don’t worry that the hotel may not honor the rate it advertises on its web site, by an agreement, all hotels are bound to the rates they advertise on their websites.

Many budget travelers also find it very sensible to stay on the mainland. Rates for comparable accommodation are easily half of that in Venice proper. The connectivity between Mestre and Venice is so good that it will not trouble you in any way. An added advantage is the much lower costs of food in the Mainland.
