Temporary Lodging

It is not always possible to secure permanent housing before arriving in Aberdeen and therefore may be necessary to stay somewhere in the interim. There are a number of options for temporary lodging. Keep a few things in mind. You can expect to pay £60 and up a night for a double room. Most guest houses include breakfast in the cost of  the stay. If at all possible, avoid arriving during the Oil & Gas Exhibition held in the beginning of September as it will be extremely difficult to find any accommodation in Aberdeen at that time. This is held in Aberdeen every other year, so the exact date will vary.
