Hotel, Hostel, Etc
Phew! I had a hard time booking for so many accommodation at such an awkward time – not v advance, not v last minute. No early bird specials nor last minute deals (www.lastminute.com.au/hotel/australia). :(
There’s so much to do. Find, compare, look at prices and reviews, just to find cheap and good places that are still available, but they are usually snapped up early.
My first step is a Google Search of these keywords: “tripadvisor accommodation [city]“. I like tripadvisor because you get to see the accommodation’s ranking based on customer reviews. Also, they have an engine to compare prices between booking websites such as agoda and booking.com.
These websites usually have cheaper rates than the accommodation’s website. You can either book through them or contact the hotel directly and see if they are able to match these rates.
Here’s a list of where you can compare, book and save for all accommodation types including hotels, motels, apartments.
www.booking.com (usually comes out with the lowest rate on tripadvisor)
There’s a new trend recently, that is to stay in the homes or holiday houses of the people at your travel destination. So now you get more choices, and a taste of living like a local! :) The following websites connects travellers and people with an extra space to rent out:
