A hotel can make or break your holiday. There's nothing worse after spending a long day exploring a city than the unforgettable dread that you've got to go back to that place to get ready for the evening. Even worse, then you worry about how you're ever going to sleep tonight, because the air con doesn't work or because you're fighting over the one pillow that the hotel has so ever kindly provided between the 7 of you. Luckily I've partnered with Trivago and Hotels Combined to bring you the best and worst places I've stayed in throughout 2017/2018, they compare hotel deals from hundreds of travel websites to give you the best price. So don't be shy, check out the links I've provided to find the best deals for the hotels I love, and find better alternatives to those I didn’t...
Whilst it can be pretty easy to find ridiculously cheap flights (read my blog on Skyscanner here ) depending on where you're visiting, the hotel can be the most expensive part of a trip. In Asia for instance; India, Vietnam in my experience 5* hotels can be dirt cheap, (think £15-£40 a night) however in places in Europe, such as Rome and Budapest, the flights can be much cheaper than the hotel. So to find the best deals on hotels, apartments and B&Bs follow these tips.
I love city breaks, but I love cheap city breaks even more. Icelolly.com is a holiday comparison site for independent companies, so they basically compile lots of cheap breaks together that you can browse and compare. I spend a ridiculous amount of time (often when I should be revising or doing work), browsing the latest deals on last minute breaks. My number one present option for friends/boyfriends are trips, because not only do they get to visit and experience somewhere new, I get to come too! So its unsurprising that it's one of my budget travel tips that I wanted to share!
