Choosing The Ideal Travel Accommodation

By writing this post, I am not promoting traveling during the pandemic times. However, if you plan to travel with all the necessary precautions or are planning to go for a road trip, this post on travel accommodation is likely to help you.


Are you planning your next travel adventure? If so, you do need to think about the type of travel accommodation that is going to be right for you. Here are some of the best possibilities. 

Hotels

The first and classic option for holiday travel accommodation will be a hotel. Hotels are great because you can gain a lot of the comforts you will want to make sure that you have a fantastic time on vacation. This includes options like room service as well as dining options. Hotels can be a little hit and miss and this is why it’s important to make sure that you do check the reviews. Be aware that star ratings for hotels can be a little more misleading than most would like to believe. 

Also, given the present situation, good chains of hotels are a safe option when it comes to cleanliness and hygiene.

Travel Accommodation: Resorts

Resorts tend to be one step above a hotel and provide a more immersive, deluxe experience. If you stay at a resort, you’ll be able to take advantage of a wide range of facilities that might be exclusive to hotel guests. There are also a wide variety of different types of resorts from mountain resorts to theme park resorts. As such, whatever type of holiday, you’re considering, you’ll likely find it is a possibility when you book a resort destination. A big benefit of a resort is that you can often stay on the property and never get bored. The reason for this is that there’s so much to see and do so you will get your money’s worth. 

I do miss my luxury staycations!

Choosing The Ideal Travel Accommodation

Hostels 

Hostels are a fantastic option for those who are looking for super cheap travel accommodation. If you’re travelling solo this might be the best choice for you, rather than spending so much money on a hotel. Or, if you’re travelling with one other person but you’re trying to do it as cheap as you can. Hostels tend to have a dorm-like feel to them as there are beds all lined up in one room, a bathroom for those staying there and a couple of amenities. Of course, though, it’s not a luxurious option, so don’t expect too much from these spaces.

Apartments And Villas 

One of the most popular choices for those people that are headed on holiday is apartments or villas. These are extremely common no matter where the world you are going, so you’re always going to be able to find something like this to rent if you want to. Larger groups tend to opt for a villa because it is private rather than staying in a hotel. Villas are essentially large, luxurious houses that often include their own swimming pool, hence the appeal to a lot of people. But, privacy is a large draw as well seeing as you are staying somewhere that nobody else is.

The same is true of apartments, although obviously, you share these complexes with other people renting around you. There are often shared facilities such as a pool or games room in the complex. The main difference between here and a hotel is the fact that you sort out your own food and everything else!

Camping 

When you’re traveling, one of the things that you might want to do is sleep outside under the stars. This choice isn’t for everyone, but there are plenty of people who appreciate nature and would love an opportunity to pitch their tent, set up their sleeping bag and be done. It’s a fantastic idea no matter whether you are traveling with someone on or your own. Just make sure that everyone knows camping is on the agenda so that there aren’t any moans and groans when you get to your destinations! 

Glamping 

Alternatively, you might want to think about heading out on a glamping trip. What’s glamping? Well, it’s essentially glamorous camping. You won’t have to worry about setting up your own tent with this option. Instead, you will be able to reach your camping destination and everything will be ready for you. The big difference here compared to a traditional camping holiday is that you’ll be able to sleep on a bed. You will also have wonderful facilities including what are essential members of hotel staff to cater to your every need on this vacation. Glamping experiences are available at a wide range of destinations. 

RV or Recreational Vehicle

Or finally, you might want to think about renting an RV. Renting an RV does provide you with more freedom than the typical hotel holiday without needing to worry about the uncomfortable issues of camping. Indeed, with an RV, you’ll gain various home comforts on wheels. So, it could be great if you are planning a road trip where you will be heading to multiple destinations. You could also think about buying an RV. But do be aware that they can be quite expensive. However, it’s an investment that you could benefit from years down the line.

  4. Hey Sushmita, this is an awesome post reminding or in fact, urging me to plan a trip right away. Last we travelled to Jaiselmer and stayed in luxury camps on Sand Dunes. I must say the facilities are so comforting and all up to date.

  5. This is such an interesting post, Sushmita. In my last few years of travel, I tried Glamping and really enjoyed the experience. You have made me think about trying the RV next! Would be an experience to talk about!

  6. Lovely post around an aspect where so less is written about. When I am solo travelling I generally prefer hostels or homestays. I love homestays as they give a better opportunity to understand local culture. Keep the great work going.
