Accommodation is one of the main parts we think about when booking a holiday. It is also usually the bit where you’ve got a budget in mind and want to stick to this. For many holidays such as city breaks, the hotel isn’t where you are going to be spending most of your time so you want something cheap and cheerful. Finding a cheap hotel is quite straight forward and the TravelUp team are here to help you.

Be flexible with dates

Being flexible with your travel dates can often save you a lot of money. This way, you are able to compare different dates and finds the cheapest hotel available which suites you. Try not to limit yourself to set dates if you don’t have to. This way, you could save yourself a few pounds which can be put towards making your trip even more fun! Weekend rates can often be more expensive so be mindful of this when booking.

Research the right hotel

Before booking anything, make sure you have done research on the hotel making sure it is going to be right for your stay. Look at its location and make sure it is in the right place and near everything you want to see. There is no point in booking a hotel nowhere near the place you want to be just because of its cheap price.

Business Hotels

Affordable hotels can often be business hotels. People who are travelling on business and are not staying to see top tourist attractions can often be cheaper. If you are not fussed about the interior looking very businesslike, then you may be able to find yourself a hotel deal.

Sign up for alerts

Seen a hotel you like but unsure whether to book? Getting email alerts on sales can be a money saver. If you are signed up to a hotel providers email service you will be able to catch all the latest offers that are coming so you can grab a hotel deal for your destination.

Trade your hotel for a villa

If you have a family or group holiday planned, often choosing a villa over a hotel can work out a better deal especially for Orlando holidays.  Villas work better for larger groups as you don’t need to book multiple rooms in a hotel then have the added extra cost of additional room charges at the end of your stay which can happen in some hotels.
