When you’re traveling for business, you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a hotel room, but you may have to deal with a lot of cable TV.
You could be in for a rude awakening when you realize your cable TV provider charges you a hefty fee when you call for an appointment or when you cancel your cable.
If you’re not an experienced traveler, there’s a good chance you’ve been stuck on a couch or in the back of a cab for the last few months.
Here’s how to make the most of your cable stays and stay weird.
The basics of cable stays If you want to spend the night in your favorite cable hotel, you’ll need to know the basics.
The best hotel cable stays are usually reserved for corporate meetings, weddings, or special occasions.
These rooms have no TV.
They also come with a suite with a balcony and private dining area.
If this is your first time staying in a hotel, the first step is to figure out how much you want and what you can afford.
For example, if you want a two-night stay in a two bedroom suite, you could ask the cable company how much they charge for the room, how much your room costs, and what’s included with the rate.
The company will usually ask you to pay extra for meals, snacks, and beverages.
You can also ask them to charge you a flat rate if you need a specific room or if you’re planning a big event.
Make sure you understand the terms of the rate you’re being charged.
For instance, a one-night hotel stay will be charged $20 per night, while a two night stay will cost you $70.
If the cable provider doesn’t offer a discount for people who are staying with family, roommates, or a few friends, ask them if they’ll discount you for people staying with a large group.
The rate will usually be $75 per night or $90 for the two-day stay.
When you decide on the cable plan, make sure you check the details of your agreement with the cable carrier.
Many hotels have special terms that require a credit card.
If your cable provider charges for the use of a credit-card, it could make your experience at the hotel more expensive.
If not, consider a hotel check-in fee instead.
If cable providers charge you for hotel checks, you should consider checking the rates of other hotels in your area.
This could save you money and potentially save you from a lot more frustration.
How to find a cable stay The first step in finding a cable hotel is to start with a list of the hotel rooms.
You’ll need a list with the names of all the rooms available and how much room they’ll cost.
For most hotels, this will be a list you print out or bring with you when you book.
If it’s not available, you can still book online and pay by credit card, check, or cash.
The hotel room lists should be the most important piece of information to have on hand when you’re shopping.
You should also know the cable TV channels you’ll be watching.
Some cable providers don’t allow you to watch channels on your computer or mobile device, so you’ll want to download the channels you need to watch to your computer.
For a hotel with two or more rooms, it may be best to find the closest available channel to your room.
When booking a room, make note of which channels you want your cable to have.
If there’s no room available, ask the hotel for a list and tell them where you want the channel.
When looking at the channel list, make a note of the channel you want.
If one channel isn’t available, don’t bother.
If a channel isn, it might be a good idea to ask your cable company for an additional channel to be added to the list.
If they don’t add an additional channels, you might want to contact the hotel’s network manager and ask for more channels.
If someone doesn’t have a channel on the list, they’ll likely be able to watch your channels.
You might also want to check to see if the cable channel you’re looking at is on any of the channels on the hotel room list.
Ask for the channel if you have any questions.
When the room is booked, you may want to add an extra note to your check-out receipt to make sure the cable channels you wanted are included.
For hotel rooms that are only available for a few days, it’s best to leave a note on the check-ins receipt to give you an idea of what room you’ll have to book.
Be sure to include a phone number and email address on the receipt to let the hotel know that you’re interested in booking the room.
You’ll want the cable rooms on the room list, but the more rooms you have, the more time you’ll spend with the hotel. Don
