Destinations & Information
 1. Summing up Hotel Express International 2001
First of all we want to wish all of our members a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Year 2001 has been yet a good one for Hotel Express International. A quick glance at the figures reveals an increase in number of participating hotels of over 550, which equals a growth of 18%! (And they say the travel industry is experiencing a recession..) We have now around 3500 member hotels spread across 100 countries. In USA alone we have over 150 new hotels, and South Africa boasts 85 new hotels. Other countries where new member hotels have joined this year are Bulgaria, Italy, Malta, New Caledonia, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Switzerland, Ukraine and many more. There are too many to list them all this time, but starting with the next newsletter we’ll be listing all new hotels with name, location and country.

Also several new national offices have opened up this year, in countries such as Bulgaria, Italy, New Caledonia, Pakistan, South Korea, South Africa and Switzerland. In addition, several new offices are due to open in the beginning of next year.

We look forward to continuing this positive trend in 2002 so that we can keep offering our members the world’s best hotel discount deal.

4. Members’ queries
We sometimes receive questions from members about our program, and here are the answers to a few of the most frequently asked questions.

-How many rooms is one card valid for? Can I book for my colleague too?

One card is required per room. This means that you cannot book one room for you and one for your colleague, the second person needs a card of his own. Seeing that it only takes 2 or 3 nights at a hotel to make the card worth its own cost – it is really worth recommending Hotel Express to all your colleagues.

- Can I bring my family and get the Hotel Express rate?

Most hotels are flexible with regard to accommodating you and your family at the discounted price even if you should need two rooms.

- How can I make my reservation?

Reservation request can either be placed directly with the hotel you wish to stay at, or you can contact the office where you purchased your membership. They will assist with your booking and send you a written confirmation. Abroad reservations are free of charge.

- Will I get the 50% discount on all my reservations?

The discount is always given subject to expected availability and if a hotel expects to be fully booked, they can say no to the discount. It is always up to the hotel to decide whether or not to accept it. However, statistics from Hotel Express reservation service show that between 80 and 85% of all reservations are accepted at the Hotel Express rates. Getting 50% discount in 8 out of 10 attempts is very good, and a lot of money saved!!
