    Default How do you stay ?

    My husband and I have travelled before kids, and just stayed in hotels. Since kids we have done some travel and stayed in hotels as dd1 was little and would sleep with us or our portable cot. The girls are getting older and bigger and I'm now wondering what other do when travelling. Do you get twin bed rooms? Or something else

    We take a small blow up mattress for the floor. Does weigh a few kilos but cheaper than getting an extra bed in the room

    Now that we have kids we only use Airbnb. Depending on prices well either get a 2 beds appartment or a 1 bedroom and well sleep in the lounge.

    We're started seeking out places with 2 bedroom apartments. This means the kids have their own bedroom as the youngest still needs day naps. We also prefer the extra space and cooking facilities so we don't need to go out for every meal.

    We go for apartments now. So we can cook, have brekky, and a separate lounge area. I dont like sitting on the bed to eat and watch tv etc and like a separate kids room so they can go to sleep. So alot of standard hotel chains are off limits for us now.

    We go apartments and cabins, always with a kitchen. What we pay more for, for the extra room, we save in not having to buy take away every single meal.

    Depending on where we are going we either get a cabin or apartment (either in a holiday/caravan park or through Airbnb) or a family room within a hotel or occasionally connecting rooms. There are lots of different option for families of 4...families of 5 it gets harder!

    We generally do farm stays (easy as we don't travel to cities) as we have 4 kids (2-6 yo) and it's cheaper and much nicer to have a house rather than a two bedroom motel room.
    We are buying a camper so we will just use that in future.
