How to save money on your travels

Gay Homestays is all about saving people money when they’re travelling, and making sure they have a great time. Holidays can be expensive, and you don’t want to have to scrimp when it comes to enjoying yourself. So what can you do to make sure you have a good time, but don’t feel glum about overspending when you get back? Here are our tips for a happy holiday.

1. It starts before you even get there. Airports are huge honey traps – you have to wait there for ages, and there are loads of shiny things to buy, not to mention the food, which is hugely overpriced. Make sure you don’t cut into your foreign currency before you even get there by taking a magazine to keep you busy, and snacks to keep you full.

2. Check the extra baggage costs for your flight. The cheaper flights often charge extra for anything on top of hand luggage. Can you travel light? If so, just take hand luggage. Don’t fill up suitcases with bulky beach towels – you can pick up towels really cheap when you arrive, and just leave them there. Cheaper than £20 per bag on a plane!

3. Do your research before you go. We all love thinking about what we’re going to do on holiday, so put your daydreaming to good use. Check out the Lonely Planet guides or restaurant guides online to find the cheapest places to eat. The tourist areas are often expensive, and if you scrub up on your local knowledge you can find somewhere much better and cheaper if you venture off the beaten track.

4. Finally, (and most importantly!) stay with a host – they’re cheaper than a hotel, and they can tell you where the best bars, clubs, restaurants and attractions are.

Following these easy steps will make sure you cut down your stress levels, and not just your bank balance!

  8. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
