Interesting Travel and Hotel News

Since we are avid travelers, we always welcome interesting information which we can gather from as many sources as possible and kept ourselves updated with the latest travel news especially on hotels, flights or any good deals for our future holidays’ planning.

I came to know about a while ago while searching for some interesting rates for our impending US trip. This site actually let users book hotels last minutes or up to three weeks in advanced while providing extra services such as car hire, flights booking, travel insurance, sightseeing attractions, hotel transfers and worldwide calling cards. How they works is, they charged customers a fractions of the hotel cost and the rest will be paid at the hotel.

One of the benefits using is, they let users earn points every time they make a booking which they can use in the future to make reservations on or on any of its sister sites. They have offices worldwide in Australia, Austria, China, France, Germany, Italy, Hong Kong, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States. The site can also be translated to other languages such as Spanish, Italian, German, French, Polish, Japanese, Korean, Chinese Thai and Swedish. Some of PiggyBeng’s favorite features are their hotel reviews and customer ratings features which are among the essential criteria when we select for the perfect place to spend the night.

From the site’s blog, we learned about all the latest and interesting travel news. One of the articles was about the world’s Most Expensive Hotel Room. I never knew that a hotel room can cost as much as $40,000 a night! The Hugh Hefner’s sky villa at Palms Hotel in Las Vegas has been listed as one of the top most expensive luxury accommodation for 2007! Wow! I wonder when we will ever have a chance to set our foot in one of these rooms!
