Calling ahead and asking about packages, many of which include cost waivers for Wi-Fi and parking, is a common way to save fees.
Some hotels will eliminate fees if you inform them at check-in that you will not be using the covered amenities, such as Wi-Fi, the gym, or the pool.
The most reliable method for avoiding hotel fees is to avoid hotels that impose them. Choose businesses that disclose all fees in advance.
Instead of staying in hotels, rent a private house through websites like VRBO and Homestay. Typical fees include a cleaning deposit and a booking fee.
If you have achieved elite status in a hotel loyalty program, you may be exempt from certain fees, such as late check-out and internet fees.
According to ThePointsGuy, some hotel chains or specific hotels within a chain will waive resort fees when booking with rewards points.
Even hotels and motels in the suburbs have begun charging for parking in their non-valet lots. Therefore, park elsewhere.
Keep away from the hotel's minibar unless you're desperate or prepared to pay a lot of money for it. Don't even open the fridge in your room.
There are fewer and fewer hotels that charge for in-room Internet service. A neighborhood Starbucks or independently owned coffee shop is the alternative.
