Take ad­van­tage of al­ter­na­tive ac­com­mo­da­tion and off- sea­sons

Hos­tels and Airbnbs are a lot cheaper than ho­tels, but make sure that th­ese are in safe neigh­bour­hoods, and not too far from the air­port and ac­tiv­i­ties you’re in­ter­ested in. If you’re open to it, don’t dis­count work­ing while trav­el­ling; there are com­pa­nies like Trusted Hous­esit­ters (trust­ed­hous­esit­ters.com) that can match you to house-sit or pet-sit while own­ers are away in ex­change for a free stay. There are also plat­forms like Couchsurf­ing (couchsurf­ing.com) that al­low you to barter in lieu of pay­ing for ac­com­mo­da­tion, too. Do keep in mind that it’s al­ways cost-ef­fec­tive to travel dur­ing the off-season, be­cause ev­ery­thing is cheaper – the ticket, cost of tourist at­trac­tions, ac­com­mo­da­tions. And you can have just as great of a time.
