Using Your Research Skills To Save Money On Accommodation

by Amanda J Evans on September 21, 2010

One of the things I love about being a freelance writer is the fact that I can work anywhere in the world. My husband and I are planning a trip to Australia for his 40th birthday next year and I am really looking forward to it.

He made enquiries with our local travel agent and the cost was absolutely ridiculous. Putting on my research cap I decided to look online and see how much money we could save. There are plenty of accommodation websites but one that seems to be particularly good is Go Accommodation.

One of the things that stood out for me is the simplicity of this website. You just click where you want to stay and everything is there on the page. I have to admit, I was really shocked at the difference in the prices on this website compared to what the travel agent had quoted. We were saving nearly 40% on the accommodation.  This website is so easy to navigate and the choice of accommodation is fantastic and you can choose from hotels, resorts and apartments.  As we are treating ourselves we will be booking into different hotels for the duration of our stay but even at that the price is amazing.  If you are on a budget you can choose cheap accommodation and if you are splashing out like we are there is luxury accommodation.

We are planning on staying for a month and travelling around while we are there. For me internet connection is a must and this website gave me the information that I needed. The hotels that we have chosen to stay in all have internet connection in the room which means I can work early in the morning or at night whichever suits. I am of course hoping to scale down my workload for this month but I’m sure there will be somethings that I will have to do.

We have been planning this trip for a number of years now and having the research skills that I have acquired over the years is really coming in handy. Most people don’t realise that they can save so much money if they search for a while. I guess this is another perk to the job.  As a ghostwriter it is important to be able to carry out thorough research before writing an article and this skill has been most valuable to me over the past couple of days.

I know that this post is a little off topic today but when I came across Go Accommodation and realised how much money I was going to save I really had to pass the information on. If you are planning a trip down under then I recommend that you take a look and see how much money you can save too.

Until next time,

Keep Writing
