Student Travel: How To Cut Costs and still have an awesome time

Every college student has heard the oft-quoted phrase, “While you’re still young, you should travel and see the world.” With college expenses and very little discretionary cash, traveling beyond the campus library for many is just a dream. Traveling during the off-season would make your vacation more affordable, but you can’t take the time away from your studies. You could travel between semesters, but accommodations are very expensive during peak travel periods. Some students put off their travel plans until they graduate and are able to take time off from their new jobs.

Traveling to a major capital city can be very expensive. We have a massive selection of cheap hotels in London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Barcelona, New York City and the rest of the world. You can vacation in the heart of a metropolitan city without spending your entire travel budget on your accommodations.

You shouldn’t let a limited budget stop you from traveling. One innovative way to save money is to book budget accommodation with HostelBookers. Unlike some other companies, they don’t charge a booking fee. Their user-friendly website helps you find affordable hostels and hotels by location, rating, property type, price range and room preference.

The website includes a property description and explains whether the price includes amenities, such as towels, free breakfast and airport pick-up. You can search properties by price or rating. Many hostels have bars, internet access, parking, self catering facilities and laundry facilities. Our online world travel guides give travellers an overview of the destination city, things to do, where to stay and a map with satellite and terrain views. If you want to see guest comments on a property, you can read the online customer reviews.

With more than 3,500 destinations worldwide, guests can stay in the mountains, major cities or the countryside. We have modern buildings, historic landmarks and rustic inns. Hikers, cyclists, backpackers and eco-tourists can choose remote locations close to trails and parks. Shoppers and cultural tourist can select centrally-located properties near shopping districts, art galleries, cathedrals and museums. HostelBookers has affordable accommodations for every traveller and every budget.

One advantage of staying in a hostel is that they have common areas for socializing. You can meet and converse with fellow travellers from every corner of the globe. Some properties have TV lounges, DVD movie libraries and music. Other properties are situated near lakes, ski runs and other recreational attractions. Some hostel properties have kayaks, bicycles and other equipment available for rent. You can join other guests for onsite social activities and events or to experience the attractions of the host city. Front desk staff can provide you with additional information and assist you in making reservations.
