Hotels.com alternatives?

Now that Hotels.com is getting rid of their Stay 10, Earn 1 rewards program and replacing it with "One Key," I'm looking for alternatives with better rewards. Is One Key that bad? Is there a better alternative?

    Hotels.com are one of Expedia's 10 websites.
    Agoda, Trip etc are all Expedia as well
    Just use those 3rd party sites to scope places out and book directly
    You get better cancellation policies by booking directly and makes it easier to get a refund if something fricks up.
    Also most places will price-match booking.com/hostelworld/expedia prices just so they dont have to pay the $5k/month commission to the 3rd-party sites
    also dont post frogs, this isnt a redditfrog board.

      Try booking through your credit cards travel app
      >t. remember back when it was a free every 10 up to $400 instead of average if your 10 stays.

      same but i'm pretty sure that it's still cheaper to just book directly with the hotel. Usually I book the first night through booking and then I always pay each following night in cash and it's cheaper that way

      I don't care about the price, I care about the rewards. My company pays for the hotel either way -- I want the best reward program. People with this take only travel 3x a year. I travel every week

      Is there any way to get a hotel room without giving away some form of ID? They all seem to demand credit or debt cards, and often drivers.

        No
        In most countries you're required to show ID to check in
        It's also an offense to not have ID on you in general

      I always hear you can get the same/better rate booking directly but i've found probably 10 hotel deals the last few years where i called them and they wouldn't give me the same rate as Hotwire or whatever so i booked on hotwire

    Thank frick I just finished my last 10 'stamps' for a free room, going to abandon it after this.
    Booking directly with hotels is much wiser nowadays considering those points can be converted to airline miles.

    That sucks, because you could often also earn cashback on top of the free nights. Sometimes I'd use a free night instead of paying for a cheap hotel because it would bring down the average value of my next free night.

    The tide is changing though, I think hotels and resorts have started to reach the "piss off" point with these greedy booking sites and now booking direct is often worth considering.

    For years I'd given up on hotel loyalty programs and just used Hotels.com, but recently I've started using Hyatt's again because the rates and added perks are better value than the 10% Hotels.com reward.

    I recently stayed at an Andaz for one night and the rate was the cheapest direct, but I also got $100 hotel credit, a room upgrade and breakfast included. Then I also had an Amex deal for Hyatt on my card too.

    RIP Hotels.com

        Is it really better direct? I only started travelling a couple of months ago and every one I booked so far, when I checked direct on the hotel website for the same dates it was more expensive. I'm too autistic to phone up and ask for price matches. Will reach genius level 3 by September

          Not direct via the website, but in person.
