Stay in Hostels
The budget-friendly choice of accommodation is Iceland is hostels. This type of accommodation has a range from bit rusty to the amazingly comfy and luxurious hostels. You can find one according to your preferences and budget limits.
Hostels also offer better space for cooking your own food and eating the meals made from your own hands. It is good for those who want to save money by avoiding costly food from restaurants.
Share the Cost
Sharing is the best way to cut down the cost in many ways. Try to make some friends and buddies at your resident area or people in your tour to reduce the cost of accommodation with sharing the rent.
Another perfect example is the rental car. Instead of renting a jeep all alone, rent it with a total of 4 people and imagine how much it can reduce the cost on each person.
