Being able to travel and explore the different countries and cultures in the world is an immense privilege. But we all know that it also has its boring and even exasperating side.

After all, there is a long and annoying boarding process at every airport, and depending on the trip, you might have to spend quite some time encased in a cramped seat at 35 thousand feet.

It all gets worse when you are booking your trip and you can’t seem to find a flight ticket that takes you directly to your destination. That is where the connecting flights come in, and so do the tedious and tiresome stopovers.

Depending on the duration of the stopover, you may even have to stay overnight in the connecting city. This means that you have to make an additional hotel reservation and spend extra money. Or do you?

These are some of the airlines that provide free accommodation (or extremely cheap) during your stopover.
