Let us guess: loads of tabs open, flicking between Trip Advisor, Google Maps and a dozen booking sites? Going around in circles?
If this sounds like you, then take a deep breath and relax. We know just how important accommodation is to the success of a holiday and we’re here to help narrow down the options.
In order to choose the right accommodation option and make the most of your trip, you need to consider a number of things. Like…
- Who you’re going with
- How long your trip will be
- What your budget is
Do you like to explore the hidden gems of a city or do you prefer to stick to the tried and tested tourist spots? Are you going to use your accommodation as somewhere to simply crash, or will you take a break to refuel during the day and therefore need somewhere to chill?
Is bed & breakfast for me?
Breakfast is an important start to the day and for many it is akin to a morning ritual. Bed and breakfast accommodation is perfect for the type of person that likes consistency and reliability in their food. You know that morning after morning, the quality of your breakfast will remain the same. When taking a punt on eating breakfast elsewhere especially on holiday, there’s potential for a lot of variance in quality depending on where you go. Since many tourists are on holiday in unfamiliar places, ending up with something that doesn't measure up to the mark can happen. With a bed and breakfast package you can have peace of mind that you’ll be fed every morning at the same great standard!
You like the convenience
The excitement of exploring a city and all of its eateries is an awesome experience but what if you’ve just checked in late last night and have woken up in an unfamiliar place? What if you don’t know the city let alone a good spot to go out and eat breakfast? Some people prefer the reliability of having breakfast provided as it’s ready and available when needed. Adequately fuelled up for the day, you can then go exploring on a full stomach to discover those restaurant and cafe gems for later!
You have a set morning routine
If you opt for breakfast in your accommodation package then you’ll usually be given the times between which the meal is served for example 7am - 10am. If you and your party are consistent in waking up and being ready to eat during these times then bed and breakfast is a great option. It also means that you can eliminate the potential stress of trying to find a place to eat which may eat into your time plans for the day.
