How to Stay in Beautiful Yet Cheap Places While Traveling

I’m super picky about where I stay and hotels can be pretty expensive, especially those that are conveniently located. Often times finding a place to stay is the most tedious part of traveling…but it doesn’t have to be anymore.

I used to be that person who would travel with friends and pay a couple hundred dollars a night to be in a nice hotel close to all of the things we wanted to do, luckily I no longer have to do that. Why? How? AirBnB πŸ˜‰

If you’ve been living under a rock lately and haven’t heard of AirBnB it’s a website that allows you to temporarily rent someone else’s house, mansion, apartment, condo, beach house, boathouse, RV, loft, treehouse, penthouse, etc for a really great price. I’ve seen listings for around 40$ a night with beautiful, breath taking views.

I recently used airbnb for a weekend trip to South Florida and the total price for the entire weekend was only $80. An entire apartment, fully furnished, Β in a beautiful gated community for just 80$. You can’t beat that. Β (If you wanna save even more, sign up hereΒ to save $40 off your booking).Β If you’re traveling solo they also have options to book just a room in the previously mentioned accommodations.

Another benefit of AirBnB is it’s especially great for long term travelers since the hosts usually offer around a 20% discount if you stay for a month or longer.Β 

There’s also a search feature that lets you filter the results based on price, neighborhood, business travel ready, washer/dryer in unit, hot tub, doorman, smoking/non smoking, free wifi, cable, Β etc. You’re also able to send a message to the host of the unit so that you can ask them any questions you may have before arrival. There’s also reviews left by previous guests, which is super helpful. Always be sure to read the reviews and information so you know what you are booking. Also, always be sure to leave an honest review of your own to help out fellow travelers.

I’ve used AirBnb here in states 4 times, and all experiences were pleasant. I’m looking forward to using it abroad.

      1. It was wonderful! It was arranged by our high school theatre teacher, and we stayed for almost two weeks, performing plays and such locally. Because we were there for so long, we became close with the owner, his wife, and young boy (funny, I still remember his name was Christian, even though so many other things are hazy). The food they provided was delicious, and we got a good feeling for the “real” Germany (not just the touristy stuff). It was definitely the experience of a lifetime!

      1. Absolutely! In fact to be honest, the experience with Airbnb is even far better than Hotels! So I have even started using them in my official traveling as well! πŸ™‚

  1. The most amazing place we stayed on our trip to France last fall was through AirBNB. It was a room in a magnificent chateau in the countryside, which we had almost entirely to ourselves. And it was the least expensive room we had on the entire trip.

    So I offer a hearty Amen to this post. And we’re AirBNB hosts as well!
