2) Overpriced Overnight Stays
Some people like to go all-out on their holiday, especially when it comes to booking a hotel. The mentality is that it’s okay to splurge because it’s the only holiday you get all year. However, if you’re more concerned about enjoying all your vacation destination has to offer on the outside, as opposed to the inside, of your hotel room then listen up. There are plenty of apps you can use to find quality accommodation for affordable prices. Take AirBnB for example. You can stay in an actual house or apartment in the middle of a neighborhood with all the facilities you’d get in a hotel AND MORE. The clincher? AirBnB is almost always cheaper than hotels in the same area. If you’re really pinching pennies and don’t mind crashing on a strangers’ couch then check out popular backpacker/budget traveler websites like www.couchsurfing.com or warmshowers.org, which supports traveling cyclists.
