No reply from hotels?

Hello again,

I have set my heart on going to Varkarla for our holiday later on this year and I have emailed several hotels to enquire about availability and prices as I would normally do in order to arrange my holiday (I don't want to do a package) but several weeks later none have replied - please can anyone help?

Also - I considering staying in Cochin for a night or two at the beginning or end of our stay - can anyone advise on this?

Thank you again!

Hi amy. From my experience this is nothing new. Some hotels don't seem to look at their emails from one week to the next and some never! Maybe you could try phoning?

You could fly into Cochin and see that first and then continue to Varkala and fly out of Trivandrum. Or the other way round.

Also check the travel portals. Currently good offers going on and you may find your hotel/resort on those travel portals. Even TA have very competitive pricing.
