Are you looking for accommodation in Australia for your next trip? Whether you decide to reserve it in advance or once there, this guide will help you do it in the best way and, perhaps, save money.

All pages have a similar format. The first thing you have to do is select the City you want to visit and enter the travel dates . Once you list the hostels / accommodations available, you can sort the results by Price, Location, Availability, Recommendation Score, among others.

You can also filter the results by minimum or maximum price, by hotel accommodation style (Hotel, Hostel, Pensions, Apartments, Campings or all types), by type of room (single, double, shared, etc.), by services included or offered (breakfast, internet, parking, bar, air conditioning, etc) and means of payment (credit card, only cash, etc).

I like to see first, more than the list, the Map view with the results, to see where I want to be in terms of location, and what points of interest I have nearby, as well as mobility (train stations, subways, etc).

I recommend that you place the Euro currency if you are going to go to Europe. The important thing is that, in order not to get dizzy in the comparisons, in all the websites you use, you put the results in the same currency.Something that I find interesting is also doing the search on the official website of the Hostel or hotel accommodation that interested me, to see if the prices are the same or more convenient.

Other information: I usually do a last search on to see if there are hotels or private rooms at similar prices to Hostels. It happened to me to find a double room with a private bathroom for a few euros more than a Hostel with a shared room. It never hurts a last check, but if you want a bit of privacy after months of backpacking.

During my 6-month trip to Australia in 2020, there were times when I needed to "not share" the bathroom or the room, so I opted to rent a room with my family, I met wonderful people and they showed me places that otherwise surely would not have been. I have! I was satisfied with the airbnb platform , here I tell you my experience!

And of course, there are also social exchange websites with free hosting! The best known is Couchsurfing where you can look for a "sofa" to sleep in any city in the world. The important thing (as with airbnb ) is to read the references, whoever receives you should have several and positive ones. To search and request your place you have to create a profile, the more complete the better!

Included Services that help me choose a Hotel:

  • Breakfast.
  • Kitchen (you save a lot!).
  • Internet.
  • Store suitcases (before and after check-in or check-out times).
  • Lockers (ask if they give you padlocks, anyway, it is always advisable to carry one).
  • Sheets included. Towels would be a great plus!
  • Laundry (if you stay many days, if not there is always one nearby).
  • 24 hour reception (so that there are no deadlines to arrive or leave).

It is also important that you read the comments of other guests  who have stayed. Valuations are generally divided into aspects such as: location, cleanliness, security, personnel, facilities, and overall value . This helps you to compare according to what is most important to you. You can also do a double-check on Trip Advisor!

How do I make a reservation?

Super simple! You must click on the room you want to book, for example, 6-bed mixed room with shared bathroom. Then, the number of beds you want to reserve (if more than one person goes, you must enter the exact number of people traveling).

Also remember to check the dates , if they are the ones you actually entered when you started the search.Then they will ask you for a credit card . hotel accommodation  Depending on the website you have chosen, if they charge you something or not for making the reservation. For example:

HotelWorld: No management fee. It charges you a 15% deposit or down payment, which will be deducted from the total. Example, if your reservation was for 100 Euros, they will charge you from your credit card when you book 15 euros, and when you enter the hotel they will charge you the remaining 85.

Metal roofs grown rapidly in recent years for both commercial and residential properties.

What is more pointless than cursory sightseeing tourism? I am sure that it will be a hundred times more interesting to participate in a local cycling marathon or in a competition for manually corking bottles in some château d'Arsac than dragging a guide  Wine Tours around the back streets of a church where in such and such a shaggy year Eleanor of Aquitaine became engaged to Louis ... uh ... VII, thanks to Wikipedia. This article is written for independent travelers who are ready to learn the hard way what wine tourism is in France , namely in Bordeaux . No matter how alternative you are,  Wine Tours  in Bordeaux without exploring the famous chateau is somehow silly.

Chateau tours are organized in Bordeaux just around every corner. To the great chateau - in an organized manner Keep in mind

The importance of the sommelier in the service of a good wine

By going to a good restaurant, any of us expects to be treated, in addition to respect, with professionalism. If in addition to like eating we like wine a lot, this aspect becomes more important. In the treatment of professionalism in wine matters, the person in charge is known as a sommelier, hired by the restaurant, who will be in charge of explaining every detail in the questions that may arise and the person in charge of advising on aspects that have to do with pairing. Who is the sommelier? Although there is popularly some confusion between the role of the sommelier and that of the winemaker, they really are very different jobs. The sommelier can be said to be that wine expert who works in restaurants or wineries facing the public, advising clients on all aspects that have to do with wine and its pairing, it could be said that it is the union between the large producers and final consumers, it is the decisive element for the consumer to take one or the other wine.
