Tips for booking a Budget Hotel in Goa

Although there isn’t anything that you can do to influence the prices of the hotels, there are certain things that can help you get a good deal and a hassle-free stay.

Here are a few tips that I have found to be really helpful:

Book Early

If possible, book your choice of stay well in advance. That way you can avoid the last-minute charges.

Avoid the Peak time

Goa gets pretty busy around the Christmas- New Year time. So, unless you want to visit Goa for the parties, I would suggest you avoid this time.

Avoid the Weekends

Again, since the footfall in Goa increases during the weekends, the prices also remain high. Therefore, avoid if possible.

Carry your ID Cards

It is mandatory for visitors to provide a government recognized Identification Card to confirm the booking. Make sure you carry a valid ID card. For foreign nationals, a passport is needed. Indian nationals can produce their Aadhar Card as their ID.

I hope this blog helped you find a suitable budget hotel in Goa for under 1000 INR. Although I have tried to answer all the questions, if you have any doubts or other questions, drop them in the comment section.  I will answer them as soon as possible to the best of my knowledge.

Happy Wayfaring 😊
