Thursday, October 05, 2017 doesn't show all the available rooms.

I was looking at to book some accommodation in a Victorian country town. According to all the accommodation is booked. This simply isn't true.

I checked one motel and there were plenty of days left, but it would have meant moving rooms during the stay. Not ideal, but still plenty of rooms available. I then checked the hotel I was originally looking at that had become booked. The hotel had a room for all the days I wanted. I booked the hotel even though stated the last room sold out 2 days ago.

The trick here is not to just use Double check the hotels' actual sites.

In the past I've found a cheaper price by checking a hotel's site. In another instance one accommodation provider said they use to keep their name out there.

There's lots of techniques accommodation providers will use to help promote their business and get our business. It isn't always's issue. But just because doesn't say there's any rooms available, doesn't mean there's actually no rooms available. Check each of the accommodation providers' own websites. You may be pleasantly surprised.
