Hotels and flights will make up the bulk of your travel expenses, so if you're looking to cut down on costs maybe you should try to skimp on the stay since there's only so much you can save with an air ticket. Read on to find out some savvy ways to save on your lodgings.
Fancy a stay with a homey feel? Check out Airbnb.com, a site where individuals rent out their rooms or house to travelers. I found some pretty great deals on the site with discounted pricing on rooms situated in prime locales. The multiple pictures will give you a good idea of what the rooms look like and if you're still a bit hesitant, there are plenty user generated reviews for you to check out.
Want to not spend any money on your lodgings? Explore CouchSurfing.org, a volunteer-based network in which you can crash on someone's couch for free. It's a great little community that may enrich your travel experience, because your couchsurfing pal might show you some of the local sights. What better way to view the city than through the eyes of a local?
Bonus: you might even make a lifelong friend!
