Travel:

There are a variety of reasons to stay in a vacation rental instead of a hotel when you travel. It is more spacious, usually has a kitchen (which saves on restaurant costs), and is usually far less expensive!

One of the best sites to find vacation rentals is Airbnb. I’ve used Airbnb many times, and have always had a great experience. Best of all, Airbnb is currently offering $55 off your first stay through this link!

You can find out more about Airbnb here.
