In our ongoing series of rate comparisons, we have matched up the popular Priceline.com with the upstart “Travel Search Engine” at BestTravelCoupon.com.

Our head-to-head comparisons include a same day rate comparison on 90 hotels in 6 cities.  15 hotels in each city.  We search and compare the same hotels on the same dates.  When comparing we use the TOTAL COST of the hotel (including any “Taxes and Fees” the booking site may add).

Compare Total Cost:

The Total Cost is important because some booking sites will post a lower nightly rate and then hide some additional fees in the “Taxes and Fees” they add right before booking.  Priceline works this way.  Priceline posts a “Nightly Rate” on the initial search and then requires you to click a page, enter yourfirst and last name, and then click another page before seeing the “TOTAL COST”.

On the other hand, BestTravelCoupon.com instantly posts the lowest rates for all rooms on the initial results.
