London bound? Stall and save

August 26, 2007|Vani Rangachar

With a dollar worth only about 50 British pennies this summer, travelers need every edge they can get. Late rooms.com can help you get more bang for your quid.

What's hot: The prices for rooms in London and other parts of England are low. For London on Aug. 19, I saw rooms at a Thistle chain hotel for 79 pounds, about $160, a downright steal in the capital these days. The listings include maps showing location, available amenities, photos and user reviews.

What's not: The site offers listings in other parts of Europe and the world, including the U.S., but its forte is Britain, and I wouldn't use it for much else. This is one site where it pays to procrastinate; booking several months ahead wasn't much of a bargain.
