Accommodation types as you travel the World


As the song sung by Paul Young says “where ever I lay my hat – that’s my home”.


There are a number of accommodation types as you travel the World. Ranging from hostels, hotels, B&Bs to studios, apartments, AirBnBs and House Sitting. There is something for everyone and every budget. And it is easy to book your accommodation in advance so you have somewhere for when you arrive.


Accommodation options

Thinking of hostel accommodation? Check out HostelWorld. If I am staying in a hostel I go to HostelWorld to compare and book a bed (or a family room if I am travelling with my family).

In need of somewhere longer to stay? Consider House and/or Pet Sitting. You will get free accommodation in return for looking after someone else’s home.

Don’t forget to take out travel insurance as you just never know if your accommodation might cancel on you. I mostly use WorldNomads Travel Insurance but have used other brands depending on what travel I am doing.
