Free Money Finance Blog has given the suggestion for saving money on vacation. In this suggestion, it's auther says his experience in following lines.
We had friends that rented a condo when they went to Disney several years ago. So when we went to Disney World, we did the same thing. We paid something like $89 a night for a three-bedroom condo that was 10 minutes from all the parks. We had our own kitchen (saved us a ton on food costs), laundry in the condo (could pack less), PS2 on a big-screen TV, free internet access, and MUCH more room than in a hotel.
•The same friends rented a home when they recently went to Hawaii. I think we'll probably do the same when we head there in a few months.
•I recently ran a post on how to save money on travel. One of the suggestions: Rent an apartment.
So whether it's a home, a condo, or an apartment, you can save a good amount of money (as well as get better accommodations) by renting a place rather than staying in a hotel.
