Everyone loves a holiday, and let’s face it, not everyone has an arm and a leg to pay for going on a holiday, but sometimes we just need to get away. If you are unable to talk your boss into sending you on an all-expenses-paid business trip to the Bahamas, then you might need to think about looking for accommodation that you can afford. Perhaps you might need to look at the elements that you desire in a holiday and find something that can fit your budget while providing you with the experiences you seek. Choosing to go for the more economical holiday doesn’t have to mean that you need to miss out on anything, and some of the cheapest holidays can give you as much as, if not more fun than the most expensive ones. Use these tips to ensure that you choose the right accommodation for you, every time.


One of the most important things to look at when deciding on your holiday digs for the period is the location. Try to choose a place that is central to where you want to be spending your time. There is no point opting for a budget place that is miles away from where you want to be, as you will be spending too much time travelling. Conversely if you are happy to drive and check out the scenery then opting for somewhere that is a little ‘out of the way’ could be the right choice for you.


Ensure that you check out the reviews of the place, and ascertain what sort of reputation it has, as this will be a signpost before you commit to anything. If the reviews are good then it’s likely that others have had a good time during their stay there, so it will probably be a good option for you.


If you plan on taking your pets on holiday with you, you will need to ensure that the place can accommodate your family member. Some hotels and motels, such as the Sunshine Coast Motor Lodge, located in Woombye, have facilities to ensure that your pet has an enjoyable visit too.


Parking can mean the difference between a headache or a wonderful time, so make sure that you choose somewhere that has ample parking – either inside, or out the front. How annoying would it be to have to traipse for miles with your bags, or worse yet, come out in the morning and find that you have a parking ticket!


Ensure that the accommodation is accessible for all your needs so that you don’t add stress to your holiday. Choose a place that is easily accessible and not too difficult to get into, so that you can focus on what really counts – enjoying your wonderful time away!
