Vacation Home Rentals- Best Websites

by Lori. LAST UPDATED ON

Vacation home rentals could be the perfect money-saving vacation. Here are a few reasons why:

* Save money by having access to a kitchen (no dragging tired cranky kids to a restaurant every night).

* Save money by having access to a washer and dryer (pack lighter and avoid the excess airline fees for luggage).

* Save money by not needing to go on constant outings from the cramped hotel room.

* Go with another family to share costs. Kids are happier and less maintenance when they have friends to play with.

* If allowed, bring your pet and save money on a pet-sitter or kennel fees.

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.

T.J. Mahony, chief executive of Flipkey.com stated in an LA Times Travel article, July 5th, 2009 by Terry Gardner , that “anywhere from 10% to 30% of rentals sometimes come with a fifth night free when you book four nights.” According to the article many owners are offering discounts, cleaning services, or tickets to local attractions, don’t forget to ask.

Here is a coupon from VRBO for a 13th month free when you list your vacation home on their site:
