Hotwire is a travel website that offers you affordable prices for a hotel, car rent, airfare, and vacation packages by selling unsold travel tickets at discounted prices. It was founded in 2000 by Karl Peterson, Eric Grosse, Gregg Brockway and Spencer Rascoff supported by six American airlines such as Northwest and America West, in San Francisco, and since then it has been helping clients to get huge discounts for their travels.
You can choose your hotel or let them decide for you, put in your destination and when you want to go there, how many rooms you need, how many of you are traveling and let them do the rest for you.
The same thing also goes for cars, you’d choose when you want to get picked up, round-trip or one way.
For flights you also have a choice of destination and when you want to depart and return.
They also let you choose whether you want a flight and hotel, flight and car, hotel and car or all the three of them.
They can find you many hotels all over the world at incredible discounts, such as Chicago, Washington, Las Vegas, and some 4 and 5 stars all over Europe and the United Kingdom.
If you want to have faster results and keep all of it in your pocket, you can get their app which works the same as their website, giving you many choices and options to get the most out of your experience.
You can also save more money by choosing to find a vacation, choose your departing and returning time, where you want to go and what you want to get with lowest prices guaranteed.
Their method of operation is really simple, when hotel rooms, airline tickets, and rental cars are unsold, travel companies fill them in Hotwire. Until the client has paid for the rental or travel of his choice, Hotwire will provide him with more information about the company he’s traveling with so there won’t be any competition between their partners. Hotwire only works with brand-name companies. They help the companies clear out their sell inventory by offering discounts to potential buyers. They will update their prices and travel dates on their website to let their customers choose from them and they can also fulfil a request and help the travelers book their packages.
You can call them for more information or leave them an email and they will gladly help you out.
They have many travel partners including Expedia, Hotels.com, Classic Vacations, Egencia, and Venere.com.
Their most popular flight destinations are Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, New York, and Los Angeles.
