Hospitality Sites – Couchsurfing
The Couchsurfing network is another organisation that is revolutionising budget travel. By registering with the site, and going through a few verification prodedures, the whole world is literally opened up to you, with people offering beds or couches to sleep on.
The main draw here, apart from reducing your accommodation costs (your biggest cost when travelling) , is that you get to stay with a local of the country you are visiting. You will get to see life from their point of view, see parts of a city you may not have seen before, gain new perspectives and friends.
