Do you use tourist offices for finding hotels?

Jump to last reply

The first trip my sister and I took, which was to France, we didn't do the meticulous planning of our later trips. We reserved our Paris hotel (Ibis) and then used tourist offices as we came to new cities.

This was a last-minute trip in 2000, and it was incredibly cheap. We traveled for 12 days for $1600 apiece, including airfare. We drove a little Peugeot that was so cheap the windows didn't roll down.

Most of the hotels we found were a bit quirky, and all of them comfortable and cheap. I think we did find our Honfleur hotel in a Rick Steves guide, but aside from that little hotel and the Ibis in Paris.

Occasionally I have used tourist offices in the train station at Munich, but nowadays I reserve on the internet.

How about you? Do you make hotel reservations at home on the internet or is there some element of winging it in your travel?
