Easy Click Travel

Is anyone familiar with easyclicktravel.com? I've never heard of it until today and stumbled upon a really cheap hotel price.

I'm planning a trip to Chicago in June and found a 4 night stay at the Crown Plaza for $127/night and according to all other websites its about $230/night. Is easyclicktravel.com a reliable website?

Thanks, Sara M.

Here is an official blurb I found about ECT via a google search:

"Easy Click Travel contracts directly with over 30,000 travel suppliers. With this purchasing power they can provide the lowest prices in the travel industry today. EasyClick has a straight forward policy: "What you see is what you pay." There are no hidden costs and no "Sales Tactics." In other words, Easy Click Travel has no booking fees!"

It seems to me that ECT is similar to Expedia, Travelocity, etc.

Unless you hear testimony from someone else who has been burned, I would assume confidence in it. Here is their phone number if you wish to ask specific questions of ECT for yourself: 1 866 287 9803

I haven't heard any complaints with ECT, but keep in mind that there are hotels on there that say "on request", which means that they DO NOT currently have availability for that hotel.

I just wanted to clarify the hotel for a moment - do you mean the Crowne Plaza Metro at 733 W Madison? If so, and if you were planning on coming to Chicago for a few days of tourist activities, you may find the location a little bit farther away from the action than you wanted. Otherwise, it is in a fine neighborhood.

Wanted to mention it just in case...

Thank you for clarifying that! I hadn't really looked into the hotel that much ... was considering it as a back up .. but will probably cross it off because of the location. Thank you so much for speaking up!

I used EasyClickTravel a couple years ago to get a fantastic rate at the Monaco that was far below what I could find anywhere else for a 2 night business trip. Interestingly, when I got my receipt it showed that it had gone in their system under some other name (not EasyClick), and then showed up with a rate about $40 lower than what I paid, which showed me the back end company and the actual rate they paid the Monaco.

Anyway, I had no problems but I was nervous, too, and called to confirm the week before and again the day before.

Given this specific hotel you probably won't go this route anyway, but I'll confirm the last post - call and verify with the hotel that your reservation is in place once you make it, preferably more than a week in advance if you can.

I've never booked with easy click travel, but with another third-party that seemed reputable and had a price that seemed too good to be true. The reservation never went through, and the hotel admitted to having had problems with them in the past. They worked with me to give me a good rate, which impressed me to no end, since they didn't have to. We had a decent number of rooms, so the price made a big difference.

I don't think there's any harm booking with a site like this, as long as the hotel will tell you after the fact that yep, they've got your room.

Used easyclicktravel for a New Orleans hotel over New Years and the Sugar Bowl which was by far the cheapest price anywhere, including Priceline and Hotwire. It was one of their "Mystery" hotels where it gives you a star rating and a location, but using a little searching found it to be the Pere Marquette Renaissance. Within 1 day, the hotel itself had the reservation in their system and everything went exactly as planned.

Keep in mind that many hotels will match the lowest rate found on another site. Some will take an additional 25% off that price (Omni, Marriott brands...)!!!

It's worth checking into.

Correction to my above post...

We used lastminutetravel.com for our New Orleans hotel, but I believe they are affiliated with easyclicktravel.

Sorry for the mixup.
