Hundreds of thousands of foreign tourists visit the UK every single year, and many of them choose to return time and time again. It certainly can’t be for the weather, so most probably like this island for it’s sights and rich history. Also, there can be no denying that our insistence on keeping a royal family presents a sort of fairytale appeal that very few other countries have, and this seems to feel almost magical to some.

Still, if you’ve never been to the UK before, knowing how to find the most suitable budget hotels and accommodation during your stay should be a top priority. On average, most guest houses charge somewhere between £50 and £250 per night for their most luxurious rooms, but this doesn’t mean you’ll end up paying that much, not if you obtain the right advice and use some common sense.

I’ve written this article today in the hope of helping you out. Being a UK citizen whose mad on live music means I’ve spent most of my life wandering from city to city following my favourite bands to their shows, and in doing this I’ve learnt a thing or two about how the whole “finding a budget hotel” thing works. So, take a moment to read through the rest of this page, and I’ll do my best to explain.

Wait For Last Minute Deals

Though you probably don’t want to use the last minute deal sites you see advertised every day on TV, opting to hang on a little while before booking for accommodation is nearly always a wise move. Personally, I like to call the hotels direct, or better yet; just turn up. That way, you’re sure to avoid paying any inflated fees due to added commission, and could well grab yourself a bargain.

Stay Close To The Airport

Don’t get me wrong, if you’re flying into some obscure place with hardly anything nearby this probably isn’t a good idea, but if you’re flying to London, Luton airport hotels can be very cheap indeed, and are guaranteed to be within a reasonable distance of all the main attractions.

Ask A UK Friend To Book For You

I know it sounds silly, but some hotel chains are much more likely to offer their best deals to locals, so if you’ve got a friend who lives in the UK, perhaps it might be a good idea to ask them about booking for you, especially if the room is being obtained in person or over the phone. Don’t worry though, it’s like this in most countries I’ve visited. I have a friend in Prague who always arranges my accommodation for me because he managed to get it at a fraction of the price, but that’s not to say you’ll encounter issues like this when using online websites to make your arrangements.

Well, that’s it from me today guys, it’s getting late and I can hear my dinner boiling over. Even so, I hope you manage to find somewhere suitable soon and have a fantastic time visiting our country.

Who knows, we might even bump into each other!
