When traveling, one of the most important factors that you need to consider is the type of accommodation you will stay at. Depending on where you are going and how long your vacation is, you can easily determine the cost of your accommodations budget.
Budget hotels can be found anywhere, and if you are going to a very popular destination, there is a big chance that you can get a good reservation from one of these accommodations. The bad part about staying in budget hotels in popular destinations is that you may have to book a few months prior to your arrival. You also need to be very thorough when you are doing your research about budget hotels. Read reviews and testimonials. You wouldn’t want to save money but be woken up in the middle of the night by bugs or share your bathroom with cockroaches, would you?
A hostel is a good choice if you are really trying to squeeze in your budget. It is a good option if you do not mind sharing a room with a bunch of other people, and if you are only going to stay for a night or two. Hostels are usually chosen by professional backpackers, after going through nights sleeping in their cramped tents.
These are the best option if you are planning to stay in one destination for at least a month. The best part about staying at apartments is that you do not have to share the room with a few other people. You also get to enjoy more freedom when it comes to relaxing and preparing your meals. Most tourist rental apartments come fully or semi furnished.
