Vacation Rentals

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Are vacation rentals the real deal that everyone says they are? The answer to that question is a simple, yes. Compare the price, and you will find the difference you pay between a hotel and a rental are quite substantial. Depending upon where you travel, you will find different options available. In Paris, it may be better to rent an apartment. In Tuscany you may discover a cottage, is the best way to go. Either way, or anyway, when in Europe, the best way to go, for accommodation, is with a vacation rental.

This has not been my personal experience, but friends of mine who have gone to Europe, went the vacation rental route, and saved a bunch on accommodation. They visited Paris and Vienna. In both places they rented an apartment. For a family of four, the cost of their rental was under half of what they would have paid for a hotel.

Everyone I know that has gone to Europe, has loved it. Living in North America, we don’t have the century’s old buildings and architecture. We don’t have the fountains and statues placed all around in our cities. Most of our public places, are the natural green spaces, and there is nothing wrong with that. I suppose that is what Europeans come to North America for, that wide open space experience. Just as North Americans go to Europe for that, fine commitment to detail in their architecture and art.

That is another reason for choosing a vacation rental for accommodation. You get to actually stay right in the heart of all this art and culture.

Written by Jim Rawles. Vacation rentals are the best way to go when travelling Europe. Price wise it’s almost impossible to beat. Because of Europe’s efficient train service and public transit, almost nowhere is out of serviced area, so there is no fear you can’t get anywhere.
