Low on Funds? Book a ‘private room’ instead of a hotel. If you feel like stepping away from the standard hotel scene- why not rent somebodies spare room? It might sounds strange but in the last few years, hundreds of websites have been created to allow travellers to rent out sofas, spare rooms, whole apartments and even houses! My FAVOURITE is AirBnB : this baby will allow you to find a stay anywhere in the world- from the side of a mountain to a beach- for cheaper then your average! Make sure you have a good chat to the owners first- and know how to get there!
