Today’s Travel Tip is about booking hotels.
When you’re booking hotels, one of the key thing is to ensure that its actually close to where you want to get to or at least have transportation that will get you to where you want to go.
So for example, I was in Bordeaux once and booked a, I think it was Holiday Inn and they said that they were downtown, except they weren’t really downtown, they were near the main train station but they were actually on the other side of town.
So lots of hotels will put information that they are so far from the city. Just get their address, get to Google Maps put it in so you can be familiar with exactly where they are. This way when you get to your destination, you are not surprised and have to pay like a mega cab fare just to get back downtown.
Sometimes it’s even worth it just to stay downtown if you are going to have to do a lot of things in the city, the downtown area ‘cause going with a cab back and forth to your hotel will actually be quite costly.
So that’s your travel tip for today, this is Kerwin with Cruisinaltitude.com, Have a great trip.
