These are tips to save money on vacation rentals:

  • Travel with your squad. Choose a vacation home with multiple bedrooms and get your friends and family together to split the rate. Even luxe homes (think spacious living areas and outdoor spaces, like private pools and sundecks) can be affordable when shared with a group.
  • Check the amenities. A recent survey of TripAdvisor travelers found that rental guests named the lower nightly rate, fewer meals dining out, and free laundry as the top money-savers of vacation rentals. Travelers can prepare a few meals at home or plan a Fourth of July barbecue, and save on restaurant costs. Especially with group travel, having a kitchen and dining area can make a big difference to your trip’s budget.
  • Protect your booking. Select a property with our Payment Protection badge, and always keep your communication online on the TripAdvisor Rentals platform. Make your payment onsite with a credit card or through PayPal, the same way you would pay for flight or hotel reservations. Traveler issues with bookings are rare, but following these steps makes it even easier to book the perfect property for a stress-free vacation.
