TravelPony.com is a brand new hotel booking website with everyday prices that are often 10-70% below the big travel sites. At TravelPony.com when customers login with their Facebook ID, they unlock preferred pricing and some of the best deals around on hotels. TravelPony has launched with 25 markets with over 2,000 top hotel partners, making it one of the best sites to get a deal and book a hotel room. In the 3 months since it’s launch, it’s catapulted into one of the fastest growing hotel sites with over 40 cities and thousands of hotels.
Within minutes of surfing through their site, searching for the best hotel deals, I went from feeling cross to thoroughly impressed. The way that I understand how Travel Pony works is that they compile all of the hotel deals from hotel websites and other budget booking sites, and only show you the hotels that are offering substantial discounts for you. So, TravelPony works as an automated buffer, cleaning out the junk, and keeping things simple for you as the user, to know what to book, when to book, and how to find the absolute best deal – that’s pretty cool.
I started out by searching through available hotels in New York City, as I’m considering a trip to the Big Apple next month. The search immediately started me off with the results which are saving me the most off the normal ticket price, per say. I found hotels that were found on special for up to 41.4% lower than their promoted retail price. Searching through the booking options further, running searches in other areas of the world, I noticed that the general pick of deals on TravelPony are from rather nice hotels – from 3-5 stars on average. So, if you’re looking for a rather higher quality experience for less, then this isn’t a bad place to get started, surely.
All in all, I find that TravelPony creates a solid bridge that connects you to quality hotels, while ultimately saving you a lot more money, and mainly, saving you a lot more time. When booking a flight, I always check Kayak out first, because they have a quick search that simplifies my options, and saves me a ton of time on booking a flight – and now, when I’m booking a hotel, I will give TravelPony a go first, to see what they have available for me.
