I don’t know about you, but I’m not all that fond of hotels. Maybe I’ve just had a few bad experiences in the past? In any case, I’m ready to move onto something else. There are loads of different options out there for someone like me, as we’re about to find out.
Let’s explore some options!
1. Rent Someone Else’s Room
If you know where to look on the internet, you’ll find all sorts of people offering their rooms out to people. You’ll often find these at reduced rates (including free!), so you don’t have to worry about extortionate hotel prices. The downside to this is that you’ve got to be very careful with where you stay. You can’t always be sure that you’ll be going to a place of luxury, and meeting strangers may not always be a good idea. Be safe, and ask to meet up extensively in public before making any decisions.
2. An RV
If you’ve got the means to do so, why not splash the cash on an RV? The initial outlay might be heavy, but the amount of use you’ll get out of it is practically unlimited! Say goodbye to hotel stays forever, and enjoy the benefits of driving around the country in your own personal hotel room! For those who love travelling and moving from place-to-place, there aren’t many better options.
3. Vacation Rental
One of the things I like to do when going abroad is rent a place all to ourselves. Hotels are fine in some cases, but they’re noisy and lack privacy. Renting a place for the week is a much better way of enjoying the beauty of the location without other people spoiling the fun. It’ll cost a little more than staying at a hotel, but you’ll get a better place for your money. Remember to factor the costs of paying for things like food supplies in this decision, though!
Our last point was all about getting away from other people. This one is all about getting closer to them! If you lack the cash, and you like to mix with others, a hostel might be your best bet. You could end up sleeping in the same room as multiple other people of different nationalities! It’s a good way of getting to know people and enjoy some unique experiences that you wouldn’t find at a hotel! It won’t cost a whole lot, either.
A new trend that is starting to pick up steam is something called glamping. It’s very similar to the idea of camping, but you don’t have to sacrifice comfort. You still get a mini place all to yourself, equipped with the basic necessities you need. You won’t have to put a tent up or risk getting soaking wet with rain! This is another idea I recommend as I’ve really enjoyed my experiences with this so far.
If you’re feeling even more adventurous than this, there are more options out there for you to explore. You might just find that you enjoy them a lot more than staying in a hotel!
