cheap accommodation doesn’t mean lower standards

Posted on February 09, 2009 by dorisch

Cheap accommodation seems to be on the tongue of many budget travelers during these tough financial times. At this point of writing, some of my friends are waiting for the clock to tick past 12am and the budget airfares will begin. Usually the $0 airfare promotion coupled with cheap accommodation will be the objectives of budget conscious travelers.








Find a hotel




When it comes to cheap accommodation, travelers must be prepared for forgo luxury facilities and amenities. Perhaps you can still get your own room and not be required to share a room with another stranger. It really depends on where the cheap accommodation is situated and which destination. Some cheap accommodations are further from the city or airport whereas others are not close to public transport or have smaller room size.

Ask yourself: How much are you willing to pay? What is your budget for your cheap accommodation? Shop around and do your research and you are likely to find cheap accommodation online. Compare hotels and find the best deals. If possible, avoid peak periods. Just like buying a second hand POS system, paying for cheaper accommodation doesn’t mean compromising on your travel standards.

One thing for sure. Cheap accommodation doesn’t mean low service standards. Surprisingly, some cheap accommodations have personalized and great service that left great memories for the traveler. Always check travelers’ reviews on the cheap accommodation before your booking to ensure that you have made the best decisions for your vacation.
