If you want to have a successful trip, the accommodation has to be right. We have put together a list to help you when booking accommodation for your next holiday or expedition:

1. Use a reputable website to book. There are now so many different websites you can use that are well known and reliable.
2. Shop around. If you spot a hotel that you like, see if you can get it cheaper elsewhere. Many big holiday websites will be in competition with each other to give low prices so make the most of it!
3. Decide what you want from your accommodation. Do you want an exclusive resort, or are you happy to go for something more budget? You could make a list of your non-negotiable points to help with your search.
4. Read reviews. This is so important as you will be able to see exactly what other holidaymakers and travellers think about the place you want to stay. You will be able to find out whether it is clean, comfortable and whether it met people’s expectations.
