There are currently some great Deals on Las Vegas Hotels. The slow economy means Vegas is having a hard time filling it's rooms. Check out some of the great deals currently being offered at the Luxor. They are offering midweek rates around $59 a night. They are also offering 2-for-1 tickets to Luxor shows and free dining credits.

Another hotel offering great deals is the MGM grand. Vegas Hotel Guide does a great job of keeping you up to date with the specials offered at many major Las Vegas Casinos.

How To Find Good Accommodation in Tuscany

A friend of mine has recently purchased a holiday home in Tuscany. She made various trips to the region to look at properties before she made her purchase.

When she first arrived in Tuscany she struggled to find somewhere to stay. Apart from the big hotels who charge a fortune, she had a probelm finding good accommodation in Tuscany at a fair price.

After doing various searches on Google she finally found what she was after, a beautiful litte bed and breakfast run by a lovely Italian couple. They made her very welcome and helped her with some good local knowledge, which made her property purchase a lot smoother.
So her advice for finding good accommodation is do your research on the internet before you go, and you should find something to suit your budget and your taste.

How to advertise my holiday home

I recently purchased a holiday home in Spain, and I was searching the web for ways to advertise my holiday home for rent.

There are numerous free sites on which you can advertise, but lots of them are of very low quality to be honest. I doubt that a listing on some sites would be worth the effort.

I went for one of the paid rentals sites in the end, and I was surprised when i started getting enquiries within a few days. I have not secured a booking yet but its early days.

With just one booking I would have easily covered the fee to list my rental property so I gathered that it was a gamble worth taking.

Cheap Hotels, Hostels, Bed and Breakfasts, Apartments.

Industry insiders are predicting that this year more people will be jetting off on city breaks, inter-railing round Europe, and generally traveling in greater numbers than ever before. And they really are spoilt for choice when it comes to late deals and the range of excellent accommodation options available to them.


The number of backpackers hostels and independent youth hostels has surged in response to increased demand for cheap accommodation, as a result of a radical overhaul from the travel industry in the last five years, or so.

Package holidays for so long a staple of summer holidays has become chronically unfashionable, as people increasingly looked to move away from the uniformity that they promoted. And the conventional high street travel agent is feeling the pinch, as people increasingly found they could cut out the middle man and make their own arrangements online.

In light of this, people had to find some form of affordable accommodation on their holidays. And the answer came increasingly from the ranks of the independent youth hostels and backpackers hostels.

Hardly a new concept – youth hostels have been around for years now – the necessary tweaks really started to be made back in the late 90s. In retrospect, it's hard to see which came first, the great accommodation or the booking sites that drive them. It goes without saying that one could not exist without the other.

But with the internet, and a series of sites who allowed their customers to 'rate' hostels came a greater awareness of what travelers actually wanted and needed. Now well-stocked kitchens or cool communal areas boasting libraries filled with travel guides and DVDs, prove the rule rather than the exception.

And just as the hostels have gained in popularity (and quality), so too has the rest of the budget accommodation sector begun to take notice of the numbers of people, and offering an ever-improving service for less than you'd think.

Cheap hotels

The cheap hotel market, so long, seemingly, a slightly complacent force reluctant to really compete on price and relying on their hotel status, has started to really square up to its competitors. Increasingly, owners of small hotels are setting aside a quota of rooms online for the budget traveler, safe in the knowledge that they will be snapped up.

What's more many small hotels have realized that they can turn their size into a significant advantage. Global travelers are increasingly looking for a sense of uniqueness, of individuality. It's this desire that has inspired the rise of the boutique hotel, a concept which the cheaper end of the hotel market has embraced.

And there are times when even the most ardent backpacker or roving student traveler wants freshly pressed sheets, a hot shower to themselves and a good night's sleep. Oh, and perhaps a mini bar…

Bed & Breakfasts

Bed & breakfasts and guesthouses have also experienced a real resurgence in popularity in recent years. Both generally define themselves as 'homey' and comfortable with an emphasis on personal service rather than luxury. And their renewed popularity has come as a result of these values being increasingly in demand by footsore travelers.

Like the cheap hotels market they have responded well to a shift in the market, and the recent rise of >boutique hotels by radically improving their service.

Self Catering Apartments

Hovering somewhere between the service provided by a backpackers hostel (with a kitchen and lounge area as a general rule) and a hotel (you don't have to share your accommodation with anyone else) renting an apartment has become a viable alternative to the usual cheap hotel/B&B/hostel options. The hotels sector has even responded to the demand for apartment-style accommodation with the growth of aparthotels.

The self catering apartments concept can be a winning one, particularly for those traveling in groups or those looking to stay in a town or city for more than a few days. Groups can really fill out an apartment and make it somewhere that they'll genuinely look forward to coming back to at the end of a long day's sightseeing, whilst long-stayers can settle in and spread out more than they could in a cheap hotel or hostel.

All in all, things have rarely looked as rosy for travellers with a budget.
