    Accommodation Ideas

    I know many cycletourists only stay in a particular city for a night or two before moving on, but if a cycletourist was to spend a week or more in an area to have a good look around, there are places available in some cities for that person to stay relatively inexpensively.

    http://www.rentingspaces.ca/index.htm is a service for Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg, and mainly posts places for students, but not exclusively.

    http://www.rentingspaces.ca/search.htm?moreinfo=21023
    This place rents private rooms on a weekly basis for 1-2 people anywhere from $200-$300 a week, which works out to about $28-42/night.

    http://www.rentingspaces.ca/search.htm?moreinfo=7240
    This one caters mainly to students and runs $150/week, but if they had a free room, someone other than a student might be able to stay as well.

    Those prices are comparable to hostel prices, but for private rooms rather than dorm rooms.


    Do you have a similar service, or places like these, in your city?

    Thanks for the info Machka! Maybe by the time I ride to Vancouver in 2010, they'll have that service there.

    You'd want to be booking it now!


    I took a look, and AMSRentLine seems to be a comparable service as the one here in Alberta, and they do have some ads up for short-term rentals.

    There are also quite a few hostels in the area ... but if you're going to go with that method, you would definitely want to book it now.
