I have talked many times before on this blog about AutoSlash, the site that tracks your refundable car rental reservations and emails you if they find a lower rate. I’ve used it several times to save hundreds of dollars per reservation.

(SEE ALSO: “You got a great deal – I’ve been renting these for $100 / DAY!”)

Now the company behind AutoSlash is introducing HotelSlash, a site that aims to do the same thing with refundable hotel reservations.

HotelSlash – track and lower your hotel reservations

Unlike AutoSlash, HotelSlash is not a free service but there is a way to get a free trial. Anyone can sign up on the website and get a three month free trial, but HotelSlash has given Points With a Crew readers the ability to get six months free with code POINTSWITHACREW. Note that this is not an affiliate link – I get nothing if you sign up using my code. It’s my understanding that they are not doing affiliate marketing at this time in an attempt to pass all of the savings onto the consumers.

There is no credit card required, which means you don’t have to worry about being automatically charged at the end of the 6-month trial. After the trial ends, you will also be eligible for a 50% discount off of the annual membership rate of $29.95.

If you’ve used AutoSlash before, HotelSlash works in much the same way. You can either have them book your hotel directly or you can give them your reservation details and have them continuously monitor it for price drops.

Is HotelSlash Worth It?

I would say that it is almost certainly worth trying out HotelSlash while it is free – you really are at no risk since you haven’t paid anything. You can even sign up if and once you have an upcoming hotel reservation, take the free trial and see if HotelSlash is able to find you a lower price. I would imagine that even one or two reservations could make it worth the $29.95 annual fee (and remember you get 50% off if you use code POINTSWITHACREW when signing up)

Some of the downsides I can think of regarding HotelSlash is that I believe it only works on paid reservations – not award stays. Now that hotels have started moving away from award charts, you have to constantly monitor your award hotel bookings for price drops as well. Also, you can often go through a cashback or other shopping portal when booking hotel stays, which you give up if you book through HotelSlash. And the final potential downside is that you may not be able to get elite benefits or elite credits if you book through a third-party site like HotelSlash.

Still, I think it can absolutely make sense in certain situations.

The Bottom Line

HotelSlash is a new price monitoring site by the team that brought you AutoSlash for car rentals. You can book directly with HotelSlash, or you can send them your existing hotel reservations. They will continuously monitor your reservations and let you know if you can rebook it at a lower rate. This can be a great way to save money on refundable hotel reservations.
