Should you book in Advance?

When you finally make the decision that you’ll be visiting a certain destination, you have to think of how to arrange for your accommodation. When you choose a hotel, you have the option of either making an advance booking or booking when you arrive. Should you book in advance or on arrival?

Advance booking makes it possible for you to enjoy some benefits that would otherwise be unavailable. One of the reasons that make people make advance bookings is that such bookings come with substantial discounts. When the booking is made several months prior to travel, you could actually end up making savings as high as 50%.

When you research hotels on the internet before booking, you are able to compare the prices of various hotels and their locations before committing. Most modern hotels have very comprehensive websites that provide detailed info on what is on offer and you can know with precision what you’ll be spending your money on. In addition to the hotels, most hotel websites will tell you of touristy sites nearby and also how close you are to other amenities such as shopping malls and hospitals.

Online booking is especially ideal for the budget traveler who has a flexible travel schedule. If you don’t have to travel at a very specific time, you can time your visit with the time when hotels rates are lowest.

Choosing a Hotel or AirBnB for your travel: Make the right choice

Hotels-vs-AirBnb

When setting yourself up for a well deserved and anticipated vacation, you have to give a great deal of consideration to details, as they may make or break your holiday. Financial planning is a big part of your vacation, even if you don’t realize it yet. You must be aware that the way you spend early will lead to you having a great and enjoyable vacation or a terrible one, where you’ll count your money constantly to see what’s left.

One of the most important tasks you will face is deciding your accommodations. Hotel vs AirBnB? What are the advantages and disadvantages of a luxurious hotel with sky-high prices? How much can you save if you decide to go with AirBnB? These are the most asked and important questions that still bother most tourists.

But let’s take it step by step. One of the obvious advantages of staying at a hotel is the relaxation that comes from the fact that you don’t have to clean up after yourself. Maybe even the room service, why not? It’s obvious that all of us prefer to sit back and relax and just wait for the waiter to come to our room with the champagne, as opposed to getting up every morning and going out to grab a bite. But the second option may very well be the cheapest. Room service is very expensive, so beware!

Hotels may be expensive, but they offer great flexibility and a room can be booked at the minutes notice. Other than that, if you want to get better directions or just want to know where you can party and have a great steak afterwards, you may want to try AirBnB, as hosts can and often times will be willing to point out the best options for you.

To sum it up, the whole Hotel vs AirBnB dispute is based on your preferences and budget. There is no correct answer, as there is no wrong answer. You got to ask yourself what kind of person are you, how much can you spend and if you are willing to put up with strict rules or maybe even slow hotel staff. So plan your vacation, think it over. You won’t regret it.
