5 Simple Ways To Choose The Best Summer Accommodations For Yourself

If you’re living in a tropical country like me, locals and tourists alike are excited to plan their summer getaway where you are. There’s a good and bad side to that. Good because gorgeous places are near and accessible, and bad because it will be hard to find a place to stay in. There are a lot of places to choose from of course. But the question is that which one is the best? It’s challenging to find an accommodation rental that is not only cheap but also comfortable, safe and will make your stay even more amazing.

So how do you choose the best summer accommodation? Here are 5 simple tips:

5 Simple Ways to Choose 

the Best Summer Accommodations 

1. Location, Location, Location

Find an accommodation that is accessible, at the center of the destination as much as possible and convenient. Ideally, it should be near bus or train stations, convenient stores or groceries, near your desired places to visit and safe. Also, try to pick a location that is tourist-friendly with a gorgeous view. Looking out the window from the moment you wake up, you should be able to say, “Ahhh, thank God for this vacation!”

2. Is It For Everybody?

It’s easy to decide where to stay if you’re alone or with friends with the same wavelength. But if you’re traveling with your family for example, it’s a different story. You need to consider everybody’s needs, priority, convenience and comfort. Is it kid-friendly? Will the older ones be able to relax or do what they want? Would the teens be safe when hanging out or will there be something for everyone to enjoy? Research on these things.

3. Don’t Sacrifice Quality For Price

You scrimp on your budget as much as possible because you want to get the best out of this vacation. But do not sacrifice quality for price; be it on food, transportation, souvenirs and most especially on your accommodation. It may be cheap but if you won’t be able to relax due to the noise or security issues, that is not worth your money still. Cleanliness and safety are two things that are non-negotiable when it comes to choosing a place to stay in.

4. Consider Other Options

It used to be just about hotels or hostels. Now there are houses, condos, or apartments being advertised online for daily, weekly or monthly rent. Hotels may be the first choice but try to consider other options.

With the help of technology, you can search for hundreds of accommodations where you want to go and compare prices easily. Don’t just limit yourself with the traditional. Just be sure that whichever you choose it is safe to stay in. Read reviews before booking or paying.

5. How Much In Total?

You will see many offers and promos online about travel package. You can enjoy 2-3 days of visiting wonderful places plus transportation and accommodation prepared by agencies or groups organizing a trip. But be careful about hidden fees and charges. Make sure you are paying the right amount for the right package.

Ask about additional fees. Be smart in choosing your summer accommodation.

We need to go for a holiday from time to time. We need some work-life balance. Don’t let stress get to you even on vacation because of some accommodation hassles. Do your own research. Ask your friends who travelled the place before you. Ask people from travel groups online for feedback. Read reviews.

Enjoy your next summer vacation!

  3. Thanks for the tips but seldom go for summer vacations!

  4. So for right now, we are pretty cheap--because we live in vacation world. Instead of saving up to go to other places, we just get season passes to somewhere. Periodically we decide on a cruise instead. Right now we have season passes to Disney, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens, and let me tell you, that's an awful lot of variety!
