To avoid paying resort fees, the best option is to avoid booking hotels or resorts that charge such fees.
Hidden city taxes can ratchet up the total cost on a hotel or resort. Check the total amount you’ll be charged before paying to see if you are charged any extra taxes.
If there’s a fee for the shuttle service, compare the price with what you’d pay for Uber or Lyft.
Not all hotels offer free parking, so ensure this is included before you book, especially in high-traffic areas with limited parking space.
