HotelsCombined.com's Total Cost Results -- Making Hotel Price Comparison Even Easier

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - HotelsCombined.com, the world's leading hotel price comparison search engine, today unveiled its new total cost hotel results making it as easy as 1, 2, 3 for travelers.

With the new out-the-door price results finalized on HotelsCombined.com, travelers can now compare (1) the base hotel room per night rate; (2) taxes and fees per night; to see (3) the total cost of their hotel room stay -- all on one easy-to-read screen (see table for an example illustration).

Yury Shar, Managing Director for HotelsCombined.com, said: "Given complexity of hotel taxes in different destinations, calculating the total cost of stay can be quite a challenge. When comparing offers from multiple sites it is often not clear what taxes and fees are additional and what are already included in the displayed price. This leads to incorrect choices and disappointments on arrival. Today, HotelsCombined launched 'total cost of stay' feature to tackle these issues and better serve the needs of our users."
