Plan ahead as early as possible
If you already know which locations you will be traveling to throughout the season, you can start looking at the hotels to book early. Many hotels offer advance purchase rates. You can save quite a bit of money throughout the season just by booking early. This will also help you to get first dibs on rooms before the rooms sell out for the tournament.
Try to book as a team
You can get a much better deal on a block of rooms than you would an individual room. If possible, try to coordinate with the rest of the team for you to all book at once.
Take advantage of hotel loyalty programs
Sign up for loyalty rewards programs for hotels you frequently book. If you have to spend so much time in hotels, you might as well earn some rewards in the process. You can even earn points for free hotel stays which is a really great bonus!
Utilize hotel booking engines
Hotel search engines such as Hotels 4 Teams can be utilized to find the best deals closest to the tournament. In one spot, you can find all of your best options. This takes a lot of the extra work out of deal hunting for lodging.
You don’t have to break the bank throughout the season trying to cover hotel stays. It is possible to save a great deal of money on sports travel, and still be comfortable in close proximity to all the action.
