Hoteladvice.com's mission is to provide international travellers a FREE advice and booking service when booking hotels anywhere in the World by 2002. From very small privately owned hotels to large branded de Luxe Hotels.
The purpose of the website is to give travellers access to all sorts of accommodation and Last-minute discounts, which normal travel agents cannot offer. In addition to this all staff are multilingual and from within the hotel industry with experience in different countries giving us the edge to our competitors. As many agencies have several levels of commissions and Mark-up charges, we work directly with the Hotel Properties or on the hotels behalf, hence the usually comparative lower rates.
Our site uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor's contact information (like their email address) and financial information (like their account or credit card numbers).

Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services and for no other purpose.
