Hostels

Hostels are one for the best ways to cut costs with accommodation.Hostels are so much cheaper than hotel rooms. And normally the bigger the dorm the cheaper the cost of the hostel. One of my favourite sites to use is Hostelworld.

Couchsurfing

One of the best ways to findĀ freeĀ accommodation is by using sites such as couchsurfing. Couch surfing allows you to stay with locals and learn more about their culture. If you are concerned about staying at a strangers home you can look at reviews on their profile as well as different levels of verification.

Short term rents

If you are planning on staying in one place from one night to a few weeks Air Bnb may be a good choice. Not only will it give a homely feel but if you are staying for a week or more there is normally a discount which will help you save money over time. Air Bnb is likely to be cheaper than a hotel but more expensive than a hostel. However it depends on the level of luxury you like while travelling.

Stay mid week

If you have the opportunity too, try stay through the week and skip the weekend if you are only going away for a few days. This is likely to cut the costs of your accommodation as well as missing the busy periods.

Try not stay central

If you can or don’t need to stay in a central location, then staying slightly out of town can help you cut the costs of your accommodation as it will likely be cheaper. Places like Travelodge have places in and around cities.
