  • How to Save Money on Travel (Without Sacrificing Insurance) III: Accommodation

    Filed Under: Blogging

Saving money on travel can start as soon as you look around for accommodation, and there is no need to skimp on travel insurance just to save a few bucks. These days, the international traveler has a ton of options to choose from, ranging from the more conventional package deals to more adventurous options such as couchsurfing.

Opting to book accommodation and your rental car along with your air travel can save you big bucks. However, remember to check the fine print, as many featured hotels are simply not as good as advertised. Travel review sites can help you get some taste of reality as far hotels go.

If you’re looking to get a feel of the local place, you could try renting a couch, or a room,by logging on to sites that help you connect with those offering informal accommodation and B&Bs. However, bed and breakfasts are not a common feature in many countries, and you might not receive the same quality of service that you might at home.

For those really cash-strapped, hostels are a great way to bunk down for the night. Not all hostels are dormitories, and for couples (yes, even those with children), there might be options that include private rooms. And that will leave enough room for savings!

Travel tip: When booking accommodation, always remember to ask about cancellation policies. Busy tourist spots sometimes do not have much penalty for cancelled reservations.
