Wherever you’re looking to stay during your next getaway, you can be sure there’ll be plenty of options to choose from when it comes to booking accommodation. This process, however, doesn’t always come cheap and you can often end up paying hundreds of pounds (and maybe even more) for the perfect place.

Prices fluctuate regularly, and if you’re looking to book a hotel or alternate accommodation during the busy periods of the year (such as Christmas, Easter and the summer holidays), you can almost guarantee you’ll end up paying more. Students, as a result, tend to get the rough end of the deal as peak seasons are often the only time they have free to go on holiday.

As a former sports journalist and content creator, I swapped the press box for a permanent desk several years ago. Since giving match reports the red card, I have enjoyed developing my writing and research skills in a few other areas, and now I spend my time doing something I really enjoy - sharing the best ways to save on travel with our wonderful readers.

I love nothing more than exploring different parts of the world and learning about new cultures (and taking in the occasional sporting fixture, if at all possible). I’m just as happy on a quick city break in Lisbon as I am navigating my way across the width of America, and firmly believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy travelling regardless of their budget.
