Save Money Renting a Vacation Home
Here are the most popular sites for vacation rentals : VRBO (stands for Vacation Rental By Owner), Homeaway.com, and Flipkey.com. VRBO and Homeaway offer photos and an availability calendar. FlipKey is a TripAdvisor Company.
The sites can help you to find a place to rent or list your vacation home for rent. There are private homes, condos, mountain homes and beach rentals listed in the United States and worldwide. Some vacation home rentals can even accomodate large groups for family reunions.
Last Minute Bargains
Here is a site to check out for last minute deals on trips for next weekend or the one after. The site is called Last Minute.com. I found the site very easy to navigate. They advertise up to 70% off on last minute travel deals. You can search for deals on LastMinute.com by location, dates, budget, and the type of experience wanted like “pamper” or “thrill seekers.”
You can also search for concert and show tickets, restaurant reservations and tours and attractions. It’s a one-stop shop for deals for the last minute traveler. All sales are final. This is their link below:
