What kind of traveller are you?

Travel has become so accessible due to the amount of information available online, cheap flights and great accommodation deals in cities worldwide. However, even though we could organise a trip to far off lands on a Monday and be there by Friday (with excellent planning that is!), is that how you like to plan your holidays?

When you think about a weekend break or a summer getaway do you leave it to the very last minute or are you months ahead of yourself searching for the best deals and have everything booked with six months to spare? There are plus points to both sides with many organised travellers arguing that the best deals are to be found when you forward plan. However, the spontaneous holiday-makers among us reckon that last minute fares and waiting on standby is the way to go. Does planning ahead bring peace of mind? And if you leave it to a few days before are your choices limited? Let us know your thoughts and leave a comment below! And regardless of whatever your planning habits are, you can always rely on Hostels.com to have some great cheap accommodation available :-)
