Getting the "local rate" - Hotel tip

In many places, hotels offer special lower rates to locals in order to increase occupancy. This is particularly true on last-minute stays or when bookings have been low, and is especially applicable to overseas travel.

If you're going to a place where you have family or friends, ask them to inquire directly about any special rates or promotions that may be available.

Having them book on your behalf can save you some serious cash.
