I haven't often had to look for accommodation, so when I decided to plan a road trip across Australia, I struggled to find the best places to stay. Everywhere seemed quite expensive. So expensive in fact, that I decided that I wouldn't go on my vacation. However, all of that changed when I spoke to my Uncle who used to do a lot of travelling. He explained that if I stayed in a motel rather than a city centre hotel, I could save myself a lot of money. I followed his advice and I had a great trip. I am now a real pro when it comes to finding a great place to stay.
