1. Think location
There is no point finding cheap hotel accommodation if it is miles out of town and you have to pay extra in transportation costs. Stay in a central area close to public transport, airports, local attractions, food outlets, the beach, the park, and the ability to get out and walk to most things. This will help you save money and time.
2. Stay more than one night in your accommodation
Many accommodation providers offer their best deals when you stay more than one night. Often we’ve had deals like stay four nights, pay for three.
3. Stay over Sunday
Many hotels receive Friday and Saturday night accommodation bookings from leisure travellers and Monday to Friday bookings from their business travellers, so there can be a void on Sunday nights meaning possible cheap accommodation..
4. Stay mid-week
In certain locations, avoiding the peak Friday and Saturday night periods is a strategic way to find cheap hotel accommodation – so avoid the big cities over a weekend if possible. You will be stunned by how much the prices for accommodation can rise over the weekend.
