Did you know that 26% of travel costs are associated with lodging? Did you know that this statistic is for average hotels with none of the amenities of a desirable resort? That means that all of the fun perks of vacation (like pools, meals, and activities for the kids) are going to cost extra, and in some cases, a lot extra.
Now of course when you stay at a vacation rental, you are also spending money. But the return on that spend tends to be much greater. The average vacation rental is much larger than a hotel room. In fact, it tends to be anywhere from 500 - 2000 sq. ft. greater, a significant increase when traveling with a family.
Not only do you get more space with a vacation rental, but you also don't have to share your amenities with anyone. Which means that your pool is for you and your family's exclusive use. Another benefit of a vacation rental is that you have so much more privacy. In a hotel, the only area designated for your personal use is your hotel room. In a vacation rental, you enjoy the entire property. Your kids can play outside, and you and your spouse can relax inside not having to worry about supervising everyone.
