CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Vacation rentals can be a great way to save money when traveling on a tight budget. The Better Business Bureau advises vacationers to do their research before booking rentals to insure that the rental description matches the condition, amenities and location of the actual property.
In a tight economy, a vacation rental is one way to save if you are willing to forgo some luxuries offered by hotels. According to a survey by TripAdvisor.com, 43 percent of respondents said that they were planning to stay at a vacation rental on their next vacation.
“Many travelers can save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars off of their vacation costs by renting a house or condo instead of paying for a hotel or resort,” said BBB President Tom Bartholomy. “If you do your research and read the fine print, a vacation rental can be a safe way to save money.”
