Any tips for affordable accommodation for a traveller who wants to stay 2 months? Air BnB rates are pricey

Hey Dayo,

Happy New Year from Jamaica.

As I've been planning all my accommodation via either Guest houses are cheaper depends on where you are staying for 1 room en-suite with your own bathroom and access to a shared kitchen. You need to check according to your budget. only allows 30 days max in any property type. For Airbnb, they have reduced pricing normally for "Long stays" you need to add it in the filter, or send a message and negotiate with the host as well.

Hope it helps,


MTM team
