I love contemporary architecture, sparkling new hotels and things that look as if they are from the future. If you feel the same way, this blog will help you find cutting-edge, stylish, modern, 21st century and beyond hotels. In this blog, I plan to write about my travels as well as about how to find new hotels, what to look for in the way of modern accommodations and more.

Doing Your Own Thing: 3 Amenities Offered in Self-Contained Apartments That Will Save You Money

by Rebecca Parker

Australia is a popular tourist destination with over 6 million visitors in 2012. There simply is just so much to see and do. Many tourists want to take full advantage of their short-stay tourist visa, which allows them to stay in Australia for 3 months; however, an extended stay can get pricey really quickly. One of the easiest ways of stretching out every dime and penny is to book a self-contained apartment, which basically contains all of the basic amenities and utilities you'll need. The following 3 amenities can help you save a lot of money.

Take Advantage of the Kitchen by Cooking with Local Ingredients Instead of Eating Out

Eating out every day can get expensive quite quickly. The average cost of a meal at an inexpensive restaurant is about $18, and a meal for two at a mid-range restaurant will easily come to $80. Self-contained apartments have fully-equipped kitchens for you to cook in. This way, you can still enjoy all of the local flavours of Australia without having to spend a lot of money eating out. You can even guarantee you're getting the freshest ingredients this way.

Avoid Paying for Laundry Services with Fully-Equipped Laundry Machines

Obviously, you'll have to wash your clothes if you're going to be staying in Australia for extended periods of time. Laundry services can get expensive really quick; however, self-contained apartments will generally have laundry machines and dryers. You'll also find that the apartment owners will provide you with detergent and other products that should last you your whole trip. You can wash and dry your clothes any time you'd like without having to include the cost of laundry services to your budget.

Stay in Touch with Family and Friends via the Internet

Most hotels and motels will charge you for using the Internet. Unfortunately, data can get expensive really quickly. With self-contained apartments, you can expect Internet and cable to be included in the package (although you might want to inquire and confirm before you book the place), so you can easily stay in touch with family and friends.

Having Internet can also come in handy. You can easily search up whether there are any events happening in the city you're in and other details that could really make a huge difference to the quality of your trip.

Instead of booking a room at a hotel or a motel, consider renting self-contained apartments. Not only will these apartments provide you with all of the amenities and utilities you'll need to enjoy your trip to the fullest, but you'll also find that they are extremely affordable.
