Save on Your Christmas Travel
Many of us are gearing up to spend time traveling over the Christmas holiday, which for some of us includes lodging expenses. Since lodging expenses can eat up a huge chunk of your Christmas savings, you’ll want to make sure you find the best prices for them. Here are a few websites to help you find the best deals on lodgings.
If you’re strictly a hotel-type of person, check out Hotels.com, Priceline.com which include filters that let you choose by star-class, reviewer ratings, neighborhood, etc. To get really discounted, last-minute bookings, use phone apps like SnapTravel and HotelTonight. For cozier dwellings, check out BedandBreakfast.com or BBOnline.com. These places tend to be more pet-friendly than others, so this is an especially good choice if you’re traveling with your pooch.
If you’re looking for lodgings for four or more people, renting a home may be the perfect choice. You’ll have the comforts of home, including a kitchen and laundry facilities, at a much better price than renting multiple hotel rooms. Check out Airbnb.com, VRBO.com, HomeAway.com, and VacationRentals.com to find hundreds of homes you can rent for a day or longer.
What if you really just need a place to sleep and shower? Check out Couchsurfing.com where you can even rent a person’s couch or guest bed for a few nights! By doing just a little research, you can choose a dwelling that will let you and your holiday budget rest easy.
