Search for flights, hotels and hostels, but this site really shines for planning adventure holidays or gap-year travel on a budget.

8. Go Glamping
"Glamping" (glamorous camping) is quite a good way to save money while staying in some quirky accommodation.
A rent-someone-else's-house, but at the affordable end of the scale. You have to join, then choose the city, price and try to find a host.
10. Air BnB
Borrow someone's house or spare room. Log in, put in your destination and see what other users – £50-£100 a night – are offering.
