Tips for Booking Cheap Accommodation

Sep 29, 2021

If you don't have much experience or knowledge about booking a hotel, it can be not very comforting. The features, views, and locations of hotels all differ significantly - and often, price doesn't help matters either. As a result of all of those factors and supply and demand, the price will usually change.

A popular place may have higher prices. If you want to get the best deal on your stay, you can take some simple steps. My top tips for booking cheap accommodation are here to help you plan your next trip.



My goal is to help you save money on your accommodation at the price you want without compromising your safety

As a traveler, I know the pain and frustration of getting into a compromising situation of not being ready for my trip. So for you to avoid those mistakes and have the most enjoyable vacation, I compiled comprehensive and valuable tips on how to find affordable yet still nice and comfortable hotels to stay in for your next travel. They include the following:


1. Conduct your research

It is essential to do your research whenever you travel: locate the areas where you plan to stay and find out at what times of year you'll find the most affordable accommodations. You are more likely to get a better deal if you travel during the off-peak season. 

It's important to be careful here - some hotel booking websites use cookies to determine whether you have returned to the page to inquire about the rates. If you have, the price may have increased.

You can reduce this possibility by switching your search to private or 'Incognito' mode, which is available for most web browsers. The sites you visit won't be able to see what you do on their site, and the sites won't be able to artificially increase their prices.


2. Flexibility is the key

To get great discounts, dates need to be flexible. See if the rate varies by day of the week or by week entirely by looking at different weeks or even different days.

As a result, this might not be a good option if your flight dates have already been set. If you have not already done so, you should book your flight and accommodation simultaneously and arrange them around each other.


3. Be specific on how long you'll stay

It is certainly not the cheapest choice to stay in a four- or five-star hotel. Eventually, it may not be sustainable.

Consider the fact that staying at a higher-rated hotel might mean paying for additional

services that you may not need or want - like a 24-hour front desk, uniformed staff, and air conditioning.

Usually, a room with a shower rather than a bath is cheaper; a double bed is usually cheaper than twin beds.

Mentioned above are just three of my killer tips on how you can find cheap accommodation. 


You can always find a place to stay in a budget-friendly manner. You'll be surprised to learn how reasonably priced accommodations are whether you're a solo traveler, a couple, or a family!
