How To Get the Best Deals On Vacation Rentals

With the current state of the economy it is not as easy as it used to be to go on a vacation.  If you follow several tips in the current economy you can find yourself enjoying a luxury vacation for an affordable rate.

First, stay in a vacation rental versus a hotel.  After the real estate boom in the mid-2000s there are tons of vacation rentals out there to choose from.  Many of the owners are struggling with their payments and are willing to negotiate the rate.  With the advancement of the internet almost all vacation rentals have calendars so you can follow how many are available for the dates you desire.  This allows you to make last minute reservations and yet assure yourself that what you desire will be available.  Another advantage of staying in a vacation rental is that you can rent a 2 or 3 bedroom property with another family and share the cost.  Most vacation rentals offer full size kitchens, which allow you to save on dining out every night.

Second, research your vacation destination.  One mistake that many people make is to not fully do their research.  Many people catch a taxi to their vacation destination from the airport.  Although this may save you a few dollars up front, it typically costs you in the long run.  Most stores and activities near resorts are far more expensive than those outside of the resorts.  It pays to research where a near Wal Mart, Safeway, Costco, etc. is and to get a rental car to go to these places when you arrive.  Also the activity vendors tend to be a lot less outside of the resort areas and still offer similar tours.

Last, in the current economic state if you can travel in a down time for any destination then you can get great deals on everything.  Most companies now are just looking to get some income when it is slow so when it is slow you can typically get the best deals.  One point of emphasis is that when it is slow in areas some rental car companies cut back on their fleets and some airlines cut back on their flights so make sure and research that there are plenty of flights and rental cars available.

If you follow these few tips you are sure to enjoy a pleasant vacation without the financial stress.
