Proxy Decision Maker – Hotwire
For people like me, making a travel plan is a nightmare. You have to decide when you are going to leave, where to stay, what to do, and what the budget is. Visiting a new place is always very exciting, but the planning part is not as much fun. Thousands of options to choose from give me a headache, and it really is not easy for me to choose one place to stay over another as I am not sure if that actually is a better choice or not. A few years ago, I found this website that makes a decision for you whenever you need to travel. It is called Hotwire.
Hotwire is a website that you can book hotels, flights, or rental cars. What makes it different from its peers is that when you are booking a hotel, it does not tell you what hotel you are booking. All you need to do is to select the dates and location of the stay as well as the minimum start rating you want, and Hotwire decides the hotel for you. It sounds little absurd that you are booking a place to stay not knowing which hotel it would be. However, they always have better pricing than any other website and from personal experience, using Hotwire has never disappointed me. You save a lot of money by using Hotwire, yet the website does all the decision making for you, which actually reduces your risk!
IMT explains that making a decision increases your risk, as it proves lack of information. However, with Hotwire, decision-making is reduced to length of stay, location, and star rating. Making travel plans has never been easier before using Hotwire. It saves time, effort, headache, and reduces your risk. Even if you get a hotel that does not meet your expectation (your expectation should be relevant to the star rating you pick), it is not your fault.
