Last Minute Travel Lodge



Finding ideal accommodations for last minute travel plans is difficult but not impossible. It can be even quick and easy if you make full use of the guide below!



Tips for Finding the Ideal Last Minute Travel Lodge

Donít book a room in the first travel lodge you see on the road. Just because youíre having a last minute vacation doesnít mean you should be satisfied with second best. Be patient and give yourself a few choices at least.



Online

This is the simplest way to find last minute travel lodges. Even better, searching online is convenient, for free, and effective. A few clicks would get you dozens of choices. From there, you can make comparisons and narrow your list to the best possible travel lodges within the area.



Classifieds and Directories

If you donít have Internet access, consider purchasing a newspaper and search the classified section and advertisements for the ideal lodge. Use the phone directory in public pay phones and start calling the nearest and nicest-sounding lodges in the area.



Travel Agency

Inquiring with a travel agency is for free. You can get the directions and learn the rates but if you want to ascertain that the promised rates are yours, you might have to book through the travel agency youíve approached.



Explore

Finally, you can always explore. The best lodges are usually located in the heart of the city, easy to see but possibly expensive and fully booked. You should also try exploring the smaller streets leading to the city. Their location may not be ideal, but they may offer better rates and more than adequate facilities. Consider asking the locals for recommendations, too. No one knows a place better than its homegrown natives!



Tips for Choosing the Ideal Last Minute Travel Lodge

You now have several lodges to choose from. The next steps you take will ensure that your final choice is the right one.



Cost

Last minute travel plans are costly. Because youíre booking a room without any prior reservations and probably on the peak of the holiday season, you arenít entitled to enjoy any discounts or other incentives.



Naturally, the best last minute travel lodge is one you can afford and one youíll get your moneyís worth.



Proximity

Location, location, location are the three most important things to look for in real estate and so it is as well when it comes to choosing the ideal travel lodge.



A travel lodge with an undesirable location presents various and immediate complications. Firstly, youíre going to suffer from lack of attractions and things to do because all the best places are located far, far away.



Most of your day will also be consumed traveling because of your undesirable location. You could spend hours stuck in traffic just to enjoy one measly attraction. When you get there, itís crowded and when youíre done exploring the place, itís closing time and youíll have to face hours of travel once more.



Amenities

Lastly, consider the amenities. What kind of rooms are available? If youíre traveling with a huge group, adjoining rooms and suites would be more preferable, donít you think? Do all rooms come with private baths? Are there free breakfast options offered? Does your room come with Internet access and cable TV?



All in all, if you find a travel lodge that feels like home then youíve come to the right place!
