Can't find a web site!

We're looking to go to vegas in april, may, or june. Our dates are very flexible, we're just looking for the best deal. What is a good travel website to go to for travel deals if you have flexible dates and are looking for the best deal? I've tried everything under the sun! Thanks!

losnshel, you will get your best deal directly through the hotel of your choice. Their web sites are very easy to find using Google.

I recommend reading biddingfortravel.com and it will soon be clear that the hotel's own website is not always the best rate.

We just spent five nights in LV, and every night of our stay was cheaper than the hotel's website rate for those nights at any given point during the past two months. Quite a bit cheaper in fact. I booked my stay after reading that site.

Have you shopped directly at hotel websites?

June would be the best month of the three for bargains. If you have time to shop and have flexible dates, you might want to skip the online travel agencies and book directly with the hotel, and book air separately. Bookmark various hotel rate calendars and you might be surprised at what pops up.

Last week I saw a 5-day block (Sunday through Thursday) at Ballys in June going for $59 per night, and believe me, that would be the best $59-a-night hotel you'll ever stay at in your life. That is just an unbelievable deal IMO. I posted that website calendar and several others in a thread titled "July/August Hotels" or something like that last week if you're interested. Happy hunting!

Yep, that Bally's deal is still there. 6/12 - 6/17 at $59 per night.

Hop on it! Great hotel, great location, nice pool scene IMO!

losnel, most hotels have a guaranteed lowest rate, if you find a better deal on the web from a broker/agent, note the web page, call the hotel, ask for reservations, and tell them. They will match or beat it.

If you use an agency/broker, you are locked in by paying all your money up front with very difficult if not impossible cancellation policies. If you book directly with the hotel, they will only charge you for the first night, and all have a very simple cancellation policy, you call 48 or 72 hours before arrival and its done.

Also by booking directly the hotel, they can work with your rate. If by chance the rate goes down either through the hotel or agent/broker, call the hotel and get the lower rate. Plus if you book directly with the hotel, you might be able to get upgraded on arrival if there are rooms available, no way is that going to happen with an agent/broker. Trust me, I am in the hotel management business in LV, and I know what I am talking about.

Good Luck...

At Las Vegas Advisor website, they have this niffty application that you download called tavelax. You put in your dates and other parameters and it searches 13 different travel websites including the hotel ones and brings back a matrix of prices with highlights on the best deals per hotel.

I have gotten some really good deals by using it.
