Hotwire is extremely simple to use! The hardest part of the process might be getting comfortable with the idea of booking a hotel without actually knowing what the hotel will be. But trust me, when you start seeing how many coins you can save by using Hotwire, getting comfortable will quickly become the easy part.

Ok, so how does it work. First make sure you have Ebates downloaded to your web browser to get extra cash back on your hotel booking. If you are not familiar with Ebates, you can read all about it here!


Once you have activated Ebates in your web browser, you are ready to start booking your hotel.


Step One

Select Hotels.

Enter in your destination, dates, number of rooms and number of guests.


Step Two

You can narrow down your hotel selections based on some of your main requirements like star rating, location, and necessary amenities!

I usually like 4 stars


WiFi, Fitness Center, and then a pool + free parking depending on where I am heading.


A centrally located hotel, or a hotel close by to where the event/ activity is that I am in town for. 


Step Three

Once you have narrowed down your options, you are ready to compare the prices and book a hotel that is best within your budget!hotwire-com-selections

You can check out with Paypal or your credit card and as soon as you hit buy, you will see the name of your temporary home away from home. I hope this was useful and you were able to save some money on your hotel bookings!

  1. I’ve had a Hotwire account since I was in university, and an Ebates account forever as well. I can’t believe I had forgotten about them both. All this time I could have been saving… ooohh, I don’t even wanna think💸😵😭
    Thanks for the reminder… better late than never. Plus, I’ll be saving way more now than I would have been on a university budget😉😎 ⬅ that’s supposed to make me feel better😳
