Your flight is booked, time to arrange accommodation – a crucial step that has a major impact on the quality of your vacation. Navigating through hundreds of accommodations on different websites, it can be difficult to find the best value for money. Think in advance what you find most important about a holiday home. Should it have a kitchen, include breakfast, have a sea view or be close to public transportation? If you are on a city trip or traveling alone, a hostel can be a good and cheap option. If sleeping in a dormitory is not for you, you can also book private rooms at most hostels.
What applies to your flight, also applies to accommodations: the earlier you book, the better, because the accommodation with the best value for money is likely to be sold out quickly. If you are traveling for a longer period of time and want to fully experience the local culture, then Workaway might be something for you. On this website you will find free accommodation with local families and guest houses, normally in exchange for a few hours of work per day.
