Insider tips on booking cheap accommodation

cheap accommodation

No matter where you travel for your holiday, accommodation expenses will make up a major part of your expenses. This is why it’s always a good idea to look for cheap accommodation so you have more money to spend on activities.

If you’re planning an upcoming Brisbane holiday, then you must look for cheap accommodation in Brisbane. Thankfully, there are several ways to go about this. As the manager of Bridgewater Terraces holiday apartments, today I’ll offer you some insider tips on how you can find cheap accommodation in our city.

So, continue reading this post, and by the time you’re done, you’ll know just how to score cheap accommodation in Brisbane.

Choose accommodation outside Brisbane CBD

Brisbane CBD is the cultural, shopping and business precinct centre of our city which it is the #1 choice for visitors. However, let me tell you that most hotels and holiday apartments in Brisbane CBD are quite expensive. That’s why you should consider booking accommodation in other Brisbane locations such as South Bank or Kangaroo Point. You’ll be able to find much cheaper accommodation and won’t be too far away from the CBD either.

At Bridgewater Terraces, our holiday apartments are located in Kangaroo Point, just outside Brisbane CBD. This allows us to offer cheaper accommodation in Brisbane. And, if you stay with us, the CBD is just a kilometre away.

Be flexible with your travel dates

Being flexible with your travel dates also allows you to score cheap accommodation in Brisbane. Most people visit Brisbane on the weekends and during holiday (high) season. If you can plan your visit mid-week or during the off-season, then you’ll find accommodation in Brisbane to be much cheaper.

It’s currently mid-autumn, and soon it’ll be winter. Both seasons are low-season for accommodation providers such as myself. To land some amazing deals on your Brisbane holiday accommodation, plan your upcoming holiday soon. And, get in touch with us at Bridgewater Terraces to find out about our special deals for this season.

Choose holiday apartments over hotels

In my experience, most people simply aren’t aware of the fact that holiday apartments are a better alternative to hotels. Holiday apartments are usually cheaper than hotels, and they also offer far more space and privacy.

Here, at Bridgewater Terraces, every single one of our holiday apartments is completely self-contained and fully furnished. Our apartments include separate bedrooms, lounge and dining areas, balconies, fully equipped kitchens and laundry facilities. And, our prices are far cheaper than hotels in Brisbane CBD. Need any more reasons to choose a hotel over holiday apartments?

Consider a longer stay

Finally, another way to score cheap accommodation in Brisbane is to consider a longer stay over a shorter stay. Most accommodation providers, including us at Bridgewater Terraces offer discounts to guests who stay longer with us. So, why not make the most of it and see if you can plan an extended holiday?

To really experience the best of Brisbane at your leisure, you need to spend some time in our city. A weekend holiday will only give you a taste of the highlights of our city, and you’ll find it hectic too. See if you can plan a holiday of at least 5 days and you’ll get to see everything that our city has to offer and enjoy cheap accommodation as well.


There are several things you can do to score cheap accommodation in Brisbane. First, don’t look at accommodation in Brisbane CBD, but look for accommodation in nearby locations such as Kangaroo Point or South Bank. Be flexible with your travel dates and try to plan your Brisbane holiday during low-season. Instead of choosing hotels, go with holiday apartments as they are usually much cheaper. Finally, consider a longer stay in Brisbane to avail special accommodation deals.

For cheap accommodation in Brisbane, you’ll find nothing better than our holiday apartments here at Bridgewater Terraces. Our holiday apartments in Kangaroo Point are perfectly located next to Brisbane CBD and are available at incredibly affordable prices.
