Another stopover hotel question…
How often has your (winter) flight plan changed so drastically that your stopover hotel plan was affected? Often? Infrequently? Timing changed, but didn’t affect plans in any way?
I am looking at booking a hotel in Toronto for my stopover in January. I have a chance at a steal of a deal, prepaid, non-refundable. Or I can pay $5 MORE for a hotel on a busy corner by the airport, with fewer dining options and fewer creature comforts, but refundable. (Or I can pay $20 more for a good hotel, refundable if need be. I’m trying to cut costs though, so that’s option 3 at this point.)
Opinions please on the chances of my being left holding the bag on my pre-paid non-refundable room if weather presents a problem or other airline issues result in a delay or my non-appearance on that reservation day.
Thanks seasoned travelers!
