The first thing most people think of when looking for a place to stay is a hotel. They are usually located in town centers, in busy tourist areas or as part of a resort. Staying in a hotel gives you the freedom to go out and enjoy the local area, and can come in two different forms. First up, all inclusive. You will have all food, drink, and activities available at no extra cost- but the package is a little more pricey, and you are stuck to set mealtimes. Half board is the other option; which means you get breakfast and dinner and can eat within certain hours. The last way to enjoy your stay is by opting for no food. This means you will fork out for your food but gives you the opportunity to eat somewhere different each night.
Youth Hostels are popular amongst College and University students who opt to take a gap year for travel. It offers a simple form of accommodation and basic amenities. Apart from that, many people choose to find a part time job to fuel living expenses for the duration of the stay. This isn’t as much of a ‘holiday’ per say, but more of a travel experience.
Staying in a cottage has many benefits, first of all, it is private to you, and you have your own facilities to hand. Secondly, it is self-catering which means you have total control of what you eat and when; and lastly it is a great way to explore your own country without forking out for flights.
Lodges are a form of accommodation which offers many great features. Similar to cottages, you have rental of the property and can choose what you eat and when.

Lastly, if you are the seasoned adventurer like Bear Grylls, camping is a good way to make the most of the nature and really put your skills to the test. You’ll have to live with only the basics, cook s’mores on the open fire and sleep under the stars, but it is a unique and gratifying experience. If you can’t handle the thought of not having a proper toilet though, Glamping is your other option. Stay in a kitted out tent with facilities, but still experience the great outdoors.
