When going on a road trip with friends, we usually don’t care much about accommodation because it’s only a place to sleep and get dressed. If your group of friends think this way too, you can save money together by just booking a single room and after checking-in, you can secretly sneak your friends in one by one.

Be careful though, most hotels will charge extra if they find out!
