Why Book a Vacation Rental?Some of you may have booked a vacation rental property before, but some of you may be wondering "why would I do that?" Well, there are many reasons to book a vacation rental instead of booking a hotel room. Read on to find out why.

3. Cost Savings! I told you I would get back to this. There are so many ways to save money by booking a vacation rental! The number one reason is most rentals have full kitchens or kitchenettes. This allows you to make your own meals, have snacks on hand, have beverages in the fridge and not pay gratuity to your server-unless you think your mom deserves a good tip which she probably does. The last time I went to a "resort", and I use that term lightly because it was a barely a hotel, I was charged $6.00 for a can of beer. Six dollars?! Isn't that about how much an entire six pack of beer costs? Needless to say, the next time we went on vacation we had a vacation rental in Florida with a full kitchen. We cooked our breakfast and lunch most days and of course had our soda, water and other beverages nice and cool in the refrigerator. Did you know that the average diner out for a family of 4 is $50.00!? Just by preparing a meal or two you could save about $500.00 a week on meals out and in return spend around 150.00 for the week at the grocery store.

Another way to save money is paying less for more space. Remember when I was talking about all cramming into one small room? Many families get adjoining hotel rooms on vacation which is double the cost. Vacation rentals give you so much space for the money. If you are searching for a hotel somewhere, you can probably get a full accommodation vacation rental for the same price, or less!
