Whenever I am relaxing with a group of friend they always get around to the subject of travel and they pick my brain about what is “hot” in the marketplace. Over the past few years there have been more deals available than travelers to occupy them, but not so much in 2013. First of all, airfares are crazy high right now and it is really cutting down on the type of long distance family travel this summer. People are still going, but they have to dig a lot deeper into their pockets if they want to board a plane. The one constant area of growth for this year is in the area of vacation rentals. What is a vacation rental you ask, it is more like a hotel/apartment than your standard hotel accommodations. In many cases they are substantially less money that hotel rooms and they allow you a lot more room and flexibility and they are usually concentrated in great locations at all the major tourist destinations. Here is what I see as the major benefits provided by using a vacation rental for your next trip.
Benefits of Vacation Rental
- Size matters: larger accommodations at the same or lower cost as a regular hotel room. If you travel in a large group of friends or with extended family, a vacation rental apartment is a practical option.
- Location, location, location: Good locations near local attractions, restaurants and transportation.
- You gotta eat: Most of our vacation rentals come with a fully equipped kitchen and private dining space which means you can save money dining in and plan meals around your family’s schedule.
- Home away from home: A vacation rental apartment for a family means parents do not have to worry about their children being in another room down the corridor. A vacation rental apartment will function like a second home, making it easier for you to monitor your children.
- Laundry: This is a huge benefit. Most vacation rentals have a washer/dryer in them. This means you can pack less and save on baggage fees if you are flying. You can also do laundry mid-week, or if you are like me, do all of your laundry while on vacation, so you come home with two big suitcases full of clean clothes! (Don’t forget to bring laundry detergent with you.)
