IN a couple of weeks’ time, school will reopen and I’m glad my kid is heading back to school! We have had a couple of nice vacations this year and it was an added blessing that we managed to get some good deals for bargain accommodations too.

This afternoon, I have to help a friend to sell textbooks while giving some travel tips for Australia. She is heading there for a break and needs some advice on bargain accommodations for a few regions. It takes me a while to convince her on the convenience of booking hotel accommodation and to compare hotels online. She is from the old school where everything needs to be done by a travel agent.

There is no doubt that many will continue to choose travel agencies to help them with itineraries but like it or not, technology will change the mindset of individuals and revolutionize how we travel. Now, we can compare hotels and find the best rates on our own instead of depending on a third person to gather all the details for us.

Whenever the term ‘cheap accommodation rates’ is mentioned, we tend to think that it’s referring to some low end or budget accommodation. Well, this is not always true.

Cheap accommodation rates doesn’t mean small spaces and dormitory style rooms. These days, you can find cheap accommodation rates with nice and hip hotels in busy cities like tokyo, london or hong kong.

Unlike what we think of cheap deals in a departmental where a barcode scanner confirms the price at its lowest, cheap accommodations may not mean lowest hotel rates. Most travelers are keen to find the most affordable hotel deals with facilities that meet their traveling needs. In many cases, motels, inns and bed and breakfasts offer cheap accommodation rates during off peak seasons.

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.

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.
