30% off...but off what? I can't see any rate that this offer is 30% less than. Is it off the rack rate?
When I search a hotel, it shows 30% off their "Easy Cancellation Rate". Effectively, this is a simple advance purchase rate although I'm not sure just how much a normal AP rate saves though, as I just searched the same hotel outside the promo period and the AP rate came back exactly the same as the 30% off promo special rate so it may be just a smoke and mirrors "special".The Best Available Rate is a specific rate type that varies depending on time of purchase, is unrestricted, non-qualified and excludes discount or negotiated rates
the T&Cs also state that the offer is only available up until 31/12/2014, must be booked by 31/7/2014,
Ok, so looking at the Conrad HK for Oct 18 - 20. $2975 HKD is 30% off which rate exactly here? Either I'm missing something or this is false advertising in my book.
I can't see it clearly, but the AP rate of HKD2975 is shown beside a crossed out price which I cannot see and when I try myself, it's coming up with a forbidden error! (I never knew Hong Kong was the forbidden city). Sorry, I can't help but I'm guessing that crossed out figure is the rate to which the 30% discount is applied.
