Have you been waiting recently with booking accommodation due to its high prices during the high season?

Wait no more!

On August 13th, 2021, Booking.com has launched Flash Deals – a promotion offering a minimum of 30% off hotels, hostels, apartments, and other accommodation. No discount code is needed.

The official Booking Flash Deals banner.

What are Booking Flash Deals?

Booking constantly offers several discounts such as Secret Deals, Getaway Deals, or Genius Discounts for registered users. However, the company has come up with another promotion called Flash Deals, offering a minimum of 30% off. Accommodation providers choose whether to participate in the promotion and how much discount they offer.

How to find accommodation participating in Flash Deals?

When the Flash Deals promotion is on, this page tells you when the current discount event ends and how many properties are participating in your area.

Of course, you can search for any place in the world – just search for your desired destination, and you will see available accommodation for your dates. The participating properties will be labeled with the Flash Deals tag. When you open a property page, you will see rooms for which this discount is available.

How much discount can I get?

The requirement for hotels to participate is that they offer a minimum of 30% discount. However, they can offer a higher discount so that you can save even more during your next trip.

Do I need a Booking promo code to get a discount?

No, when Flash Deals are on, just book the accommodation labeled with the tag, and the discount will be automatically applied.

How often do Flash Deals reoccur?

Flash Deals run every two weeks, so I am sure you can do the math when the next round is going to be on!

How long does each Flash Deals event last?

During each Flash Deal, you have 36 hours to book a stay with discounted rates. It starts on Thursday evening (10 PM) and ends on Saturday morning (10 AM). You will always find the time period on the Flash Deals page (when it is on only).

The first discount period was on Friday, August 13 (Thursday 10 PM – Saturday 10 AM).

In what time period can I book accommodation with this discount?

Whenever the Flash Deal is on, you can book your stay until 13 August 2022 – this is the last date for check-out.

Can I combine Flash Deals with other Booking discounts?

Combining other discounts such as Getaway Deals, Secret Deals, or Genius Discounts is not possible.

What to check before booking accommodation?

Even though this promotion offers great deals, do not rush and check the following:

  • whether the room type offered in the promotion meets your criteria,
  • whether free cancellation is possible,
  • reviews left by previous guests,
  • hotel’s location.
