When traveling one of the hardest things to figure out is where to stay. If money is no issue to you then you don’t know what I am talking about. But when you have a decent size family and you are on a budget then finding the best deal is always important. Plus I always love to find a good deal even when I have a large budget which does not happen very often.
Where you stay always depends on the situation such as:
- What your budget?
- How long you are staying?
- Where you are going?
- How many people are with you?
I could go on an on but so much goes into where you end up staying.
If you have a tight budget then you are limited to where you can stay. You are probably going to be limited to a cheap hotel or motel room. If budget is of no concern then a luxury hotel is the place to go and those are usually not hard to find but the budget ones sometimes can be difficult especially if you are going to a popular destination.
How Long You Are Staying
A lot of times the duration of your stay is going to determine where you are going to stay. If you are going to be only one night then you are probably going to have to stay in a hotel because other types of rentals require a multi night stay. If you are staying multiple nights then a condo or house rental would definitely be preferable.
Where You Are Going
A lot of destinations limit you to where you can stay. If you are going to a destination that has no hotel rooms then of course you have to get creative where you are going to stay such as staying at a bed and breakfast. If you are going to a location such as Las Vegas then a hotel room is usually the best way to go because they have so many available.
How Many People Are With You
The size of your group is another factor that is going to force you to stay at certain types of places. If there is just two of you then a hotel is the way to go because then you really don’t need much. But if you are in a large group then it is more affordable to rent a condo or house that has multiple rooms and a kitchen to feed everyone.
Lodging is always going to be a major decision when you decide to travel and with the internet you now have ways of finding places to stay while traveling.
