The Best Accommodation Options

The best accommodation options for any adventure. Whether you’re a backpacker, flashpacker or on a romantic honeymoon, we have great tips and advice for you. 

There are a vast range of options out there to choose from down and dirty hostels, to luxurious 5-star resorts, from cozy bed and breakfasts to the humble tent. Read our advice to choose the right bed for you. 

We have put together for you a comprehensive guide of the many different options to rest your head. Find out what you can expect when staying anywhere in the world! 


Travelling on a budget and looking for something cheaper? Then for most people, the hostel is the answer. This doesn't mean you have to sleep in the same room as thirty backpackers who haven't had a shower for a week just to save a few $$. Charming hostels with affordable rooms and small dorms often provide a better option than a hotel, albeit without the services. 


The most standard accommodation option around the globe is the hotel. From the cheap hotel to the 7 star Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, hotels are ubiquitous around the world. And its simple, right? The more you pay, the better room you will get. Well, its not quite as simple as that. Read on to find out why, and how you can get better value with these simple tips.


For some, nothing beats sleeping out with nature under the stars. For others, it isn't a possibility as they can't plug their hair dryer in. For those camping items that always get left behind, to how to get the most out of camping abroad, this simple advice will make camping easier and more fun. 

Bed And Breakfasts

Bed and Breakfasts, or BnBs, are a great option for couples who are after a romantic getaway. Bed and breakfasts can range from a spare room in some one's home to a private cottage. 

Of course, there is a huge range of options outside of these. 

When travelling with a family, try self-catering apartments or vacation rentals. These options often have a kitchen, your own bathroom and common area for the kids. And if you are lucky, a laundry. 

Guesthouses are great options for couples and families, they can be perfect for your romantic getaway. 

An inn or a lodge can ooze charm and character, or for something a bit more up-market, you can’t beat renting your own villa. 

Or if you are just trying to drive from A to B, then a motel on the highway exit road will tide you over to the morning.
