9Don’t Book Hotel Rooms Ahead of Time
There are plenty of cheap hotels and hostels advertising themselves on the internet, but the really cheap ones will never advertise online.

You might also find yourself in the position of booking the room for a week only to find out that you’re going to have to cut the vacation short do to unfavorable weather conditions.
