Share accommodation and save money in 6 simple steps
11 June, 2016
You just can’t deny that the atmosphere of hostels is amazing: the dorms are cheap, you get to know lots of interesting people and the vibe there in general is pretty cool… But sometimes, when you have been traveling on your own for long, you crave a little more privacy and peace of mind. The problem is that the price of a single room can be too expensive.
Has it ever crossed your mind that maybe you could share a double room with someone who is in your same situation? It might not be as cheap as a dorm, but a double room at a hostel or an inexpensive hotel, shared between two people, can be a very good option to get that extra quiet you need from time to time.
If you want to find someone with whom to share accommodation, Tripsaround can help! With Tripsaround app it’s easy to find other travelers with whom you can share travel expenses.
It is as easy as following these steps.
2.- Sign up (you can do so via Facebook, if you want).
3.- Search around for plans to see if there are any nearby travelers sharing accommodation on the dates that interest you. If you find a plan that you like, shoot a message to the traveler, so you can plan ahead and tune the details.
4.- If there are no plans posted that fit your needs, create your own plan. Fill in the necessary data, especially the place, date and how much each person would save if you split a cab.
5.- Post your plan (you can share it on Facebook to get more visibility)
6.- If another traveler finds your plan interesting, he will be able to contact you to fine tune the details.
And that’s it! It’s that simple! This way you can share a double room paying just a little more of what you would normally pay for a bed in a dorm, but with the extra comfort and peace of mind of sharing accommodation with just one person.
