Everyone loves a good deal. Getting more for your money is always a great idea and especially so when booking accommodation for your travels.
We would like to share with you a few ways that can help you grab the perfect deal that fits your needs. Whether you are looking for budget accommodation, apartment rental, hotels with pool and spa facilities, boutique hotels, guest houses and free accommodation the platforms below are designed to help you. And yes, you read this correctly- free accommodation!
Airbnb is the perfect platform if you are looking to book direct holiday homes! I have used the platform many times and in locations such as London, Milan, Lativa’s capital – Riga, Marseille and even in Iceland! Airbnb tops my list as the platform is easy to use and you can easily book and enjoy the convenience of a home abroad and domestically. Airbnb is a great first stop when booking accommodation for you and your friends if you are planning a group adventure.To get £30 off your next holiday of £55 or more register here: www.airbnb.co.uk/c/vladimirt180
If you are looking for boutique hotels, self-catering apartment lets. Recently, we travelled to the Aegean Island of Thassos and used the services of booking.com. This has been one of the best value for money summer accommodation deals I have ever taken advantage of.
So it happens that I had an extra day in Iceland after my friends left, so I used Hostelworld to book accommodation in Reykjavik since I only needed this for a couple of hours as my flight was scheduled early in the morning. Additionally, I used the platform’s services when I visited Rome on a budget of €50 euro a day and including air fares, airport transfers, accommodation, food and drink. Hostelworld is very well suited to the backpacker community and is a great way to meet some new people and expand your network.
I am yet to use couchsurfing, but I really like the idea. This is where you can find accommodation for free, if you don’t mind crushing on a couch or a spare room within your host’s place. A great way to meet locals and in many instances uncover some secret locations within your chosen destination.
