Choosing the Best Travel Accommodation Types

by Pooja Shetty Senior Content Writer

Finding a comfortable yet affordable accommodation can be quite a challenge if you are traveling. You will have to consider factors such as location, price, amenities, type of facility, easy of booking, and many others. You will have to understand each of these options and weigh their pros and cons before deciding on the best.

Here are a few accommodation types to choose from if you are on a trip:


One of the most popular types of accommodation, the hotel is the easiest to book. Although expensive they are very easy to find and compare, especially with so many agencies and search engines. You even have search engines that give you different rates for the same hotel. You can look for a cheap hotel if it doesn’t fit into your backpacker budget. If you are not traveling during the peak season, you can even find great deals for a good hotel.

Apartment Rentals

In case you are going to stay for longer, it would be advisable to look out for an apartment on rent. Look for options that offer all the amenities at a price less than what the hotels would charge. You can contact some rental companies or realtors to find such places for rent. You can also find them on Airbnb. If you don’t find options, just run a Google search on “short-term apartment” or “sublet.”

Timeshare Rentals

If you are traveling in a group, these would be ideal. These are units with all facilities available usually for weekend stays at luxury resorts. You can contact a few of these and find out if you can hire them for longer as per your requirement.


If you are on a shoestring budget, a hostel may be an ideal place to stay, on your trip. Designed especially for budget travelers, hostels offer all the facilities you would need for a comfortable stay. However, you will have to share space with others and be a little more accommodative if you want to stay for long. You can find a lot of hostels that offer all the facilities at a really affordable price. Make sure you check out a few options and compare their prices before you decide.

Paying Guest Accommodation

Staying as a paying guest might work out better than staying in a hostel. You get a homely accommodation with food and facilities to use. It will be fully furnished and comfortable to stay.

You can find as many such options if you run a search on pg in Bangalore. 


If you want to stay amidst nature and don’t mind giving up a few comforts, you can just take a portable tent with you and start camping. This could be your best option if you are traveling into the wild while hiking. This is one option that is best for any region or country. Nevertheless, you will have to make your own arrangements for food and security.

If you are looking for an accommodation option while you are on the trip. Make sure you do your research, compare options, read reviews, and negotiate prices before you decide on the best.
