There are many ways to find and book hotels when you travel. As you know, as Passriders, it’s a little different for us since we don’t know for sure if we will make the flight. This page shows different options to consider. Even if you are not a Passrider. this page is super helpful for you to book your hotels. Feel free to leave a comment below and share other options as well. Plus share with your friends.
Also, remember that when you book with the online agencies most hotels won’t give you any credit in their loyalty programs. So ensure that you check that first with the hotel’s program.
In addition, if you book directly, check the cancellation times. Most hotels no longer have 6p same day cancellations without a charge, but that has changed now to typically 24 hours.
Note: Some of these links are affiliate links. This means if you use them, I may get a small commission from the booking.
You can use this map to book at hotels in any city, just type the city you’re going to in the box provided on the map.

Hotel Credit Cards
Getting a credit card for your favorite hotel is a very good thing to do as usually you get some kind of immediate elite status. Most of the major hotel chains have their own card, so definitely look into the benefits of having the card.
Some major perks are:
- Free Upgrades
- Free Breakfast
- Nice room even with an upgrade
- Complimentary arrival water/snacks/drink
- Early Check-in
- Late Check Out
These card will help you to earn points for free stays so consider apply for these cards.
One way to get hotel points is to get one of these massive credit card offers. Chase has a 80,000 miles offer for their Mastercard with IHG. This is actually a great deal and you should at least check it out. I also get some miles if you actually get a card, so we both could win.
