When you begin to look for a place to stay on your trip, you first need to be clear about your particular needs.
There is a wide choice of accommodation that is available in most places. Among the choices available are:
- chateaus (only for those of us without a tight budget)
- hotels (from the very basic all the way to the most exquisite)
- bed and breakfasts and guest houses
- villas and house rentals
- accommodation clubs
- youth hostels
- camping grounds
There are widely different accommodation rates in many destinations. These depend on the star rating of the property, the location, the facilities on offer and many other factors.
In trying to select what will suit you, there are a number of things that you should think about. There is a real need for you to consider what your expectations are, and then to see how these expectations can be met within the budget that you have decided upon for your holiday.
We also strongly recommend that you should check up on the ratings and comments that have been provided for possible properties by previous guests. You’ll soon find out whether statements such as “only a few steps from the main road” might mean a near vertical clamber up to where you are staying.
