Traveling during the holidays can be stressful enough, without having to worry about where you and your family are going to bed down for the night. That’s why many turn to EcoMotel to find reliable, cheap accommodations in Germiston. However, finding a place to stay isn’t the only aspect of holiday travel, which is why the EcoMotel team has also provided some insightful tips based on their years of experience in the hospitality industry.

For some tips about finding cheap accommodations in Germiston and elsewhere, as well as some holiday travel best practices, take a look below.

Book Early During the Holiday Season

When searching for affordable accommodations in Germiston or other areas in South Africa and abroad, always start out well ahead of your travel date. This is especially important during the holidays since December and January are the biggest travel months of the year. Booking early will help ensure that you take advantage of any deals available and aren’t scrambling to find cheap accommodations last minute. It’s no surprise that the closer you get to the holidays; the more prices will rise and the harder it will be to find any room at all.

Stay Somewhere Convenient

Another important aspect of traveling during the holidays is getting from place to place without having to wait for hours in traffic or take multiple forms of transportation, such as trains, buses, taxis, etc. Not only can doing so be costly, but it can also drastically eat into your fun time while on vacation. One of the easiest ways to avoid such a scenario is to stay in a convenient motel. For example, EcoMotel boasts several locations near Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo Airport. In addition to their cheap accommodations in Germiston, they also offer affordable rooms at their O.R. Tambo and Kempton Park motels, both just a stone’s throw away from South Africa’s busiest airport.
