If you are planning your next vacation, then one of the big things that you are probably looking into is where you should stay when you are on your vacation. There are many different options out there, and they all have a wide range of prices.
Here are the different accommodation choices for you on your next vacation:
Hotel or motel.
One of the most popular options is to choose a hotel or motel. These can range from a one-star motel along the side of a highway, or a 5 star resort located on a beautiful beach. You can all choose to go the all-inclusive route as well when you are on a vacation.
A hostel is where you might share a room with others. There might be bunk beds, shared bathrooms, and more. Sometimes they have single bed rooms as well though. This can be a great way to save money if you are by yourself. If you are with someone else, then you may actually be able to save money by getting a single room to yourselves. It’s always best to research though as this can vary greatly.
A short-term rental is where you rent a home, apartment, condo, town home, etc. for a short period of time. This can be a great way to save money, especially if you are with a big group because you might be able to rent a home with multiple rooms and a kitchen for much cheaper than what it would cost to book a hotel room of the same size.
RV or camper.
If you are going on a road trip, then renting/owning an RV or camper can be great. This way you can stop and sleep when you need to, and you will always have all your stuff with you so that can take some of the stress out. Gas can be expensive, but if you aren’t going to stay in hotels then it may help you out with your vacation expenses.
If you already have all of the needed equipment, then camping can save you a lot of money. It can also be a lot of fun and a great way to connect with your environment.
The cheapest way to travel would be to couch surf. This has been gaining steam and it seems like more and more people are starting to do this. This is where you sleep on someone’s spare couch, in their spare room, or whatever they are offering.
