London, UK (PRWEB) June 11, 2010
Many people may leave booking their hotel to the last minute, however Gekko the personal shopping assistant for hotels, which recommends ideal matches for each individual's preferences has suggests to users that they should book early before the summer rush to avoid disappointment.
A recent study by the Great Hotels Organisation already shows a shift in this year's booking trends. In January 2010, only 20 per cent of hotel bookings being made were booked less than two weeks before departure, a significant decline in comparison to 66 per cent for the same period last year. Consumers are booking early to uncover the best deals on hotels and to secure their first choice.
Gekko can conveniently be used as a hotel price comparison website, helping to assist with the difficult task of finding the right hotel at the best price. This can be tricky at any time of year but with summer approaching fast, those planning to go abroad shouldn't reserve their accommodation too late and struggle with availability, especially groups and large families. Holidaymakers and business travellers can reduce stress, enjoy more choice and find a place to stay that is right for them by booking as far in advance as possible.
Michel Cassius, CEO of Gekko.com, said: "Many people miss out on staying at their favourite hotel during busy periods such as summer, Christmas and Easter, so those who are thinking about travelling in July and August should be booking right now, in order to stay at their desired hotel. Gekko.com was created because we understand how difficult it can be to find the right city hotel for them at the best price. We are adding new hotels and destinations every day to make sure the needs of our users are met."
Families and individuals who are tired of looking for the perfect place can stop searching and start finding the right hotel for them in any of the world's top cities using Gekko as their personal travel assistant.
With a selection of over 140,000 hotels covering the top 200 global destination cities, Gekko has a hotel to suit any requirement. For more information, please visit http://www.gekko.com.
