Are you considering a trip to London but aren’t keen on the costs of a hotel room or want a more personal experience of the UK’s capital?
If so, then Wimdu.com might be for you. Wimdu, whose motto is ‘Travel like a local’ is the alternative accommodation site which makes private apartments and rooms available for sale in London and elsewhere. Established in 2011 they have already helped 100,000 people to experience cities in a way that’s not normally accessible to visitors staying in cookie-cutter hotel rooms.
Travelling with Wimdu offers very good value for money – on average booking a room or apartment through their website is cheaper than staying at hotels of a similar quality. You can also be assured that the property has been checked by Wimdu’s service team before it is listed on the site, and there’s also a ratings system for guests to leave feedback on their stay.
As part of the package Wimdu also offers peace of mind with a comprehensive insurance package which will insure you against damages up to £500,000, all included in the price.
In London, the available accommodation includes rooms in Brick Lane, Chelsea, London Bridge and even along the Regent’s Canal in Tower Hamlets. Many home-owners offer their spare rooms through the service, so in addition to getting good accommodation you also get the inside track on the best places to go in the local area and advice and tips on getting around London – ideal for someone who has visited the capital before but now wants to go beyond the tourist traps of the West End and really discover what our great city is really about.
