Find great places to stay on your gap year

There is huge variety when it comes to accommodation and your decision will probably be determined by your budget, or the program you have signed up to. You might choose to enjoy a mix of accommodation, ranging from camping under the stars to a top-end luxury hotel as a treat for a few days!

If you are backpacking, it is always a good idea to have your accommodation booked ready for your arrival but after that you might want to be flexible and book as you go. If you are booking in advance you’ll probably need to stump up a deposit, or even pay in full.

Here are some of the top places to book your accommodation….
