  What about the special discounts ?
  Many of the participating hotels offer "Special Internet Rates" to our users. These rates offer substantial savings. Special Internet Rates save you money. Because of the large number of lodging reservations we process, we are able to negotiate special rates with the properties directly. These rates are lower in most cases than the normal rates you could receive by contacting the property simply because of our buying power. To secure your reservation, we require up-front payment with your credit card. This ensures you have a room when you arrive so you are not "bumped" or "overbooked."

Booking a room marked as a Special Internet Rate gives you both savings and security. You can't beat that!
  Where can I find information about the country I want to stay ?
