My Travel Secret: Staying at Vacation Rentals! #VRMonth

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Wyndham Vacation Rentals.


My husband and I love traveling. We’re both history buffs and love Fine Art, so we made it our goal from a young age (we met at 18) to visit all the historical sights and museums that interest us. We have traveled across Europe and the Caribbean, so you could say we have a wealth of great travel tips!

We first stayed at hotels when we began traveling. Hotels are super popular and most people who don’t travel much think they’re the only option available when vacationing. This is so wrong! As we became more seasoned travellers, we came to realize there are so many better options available to travellers. To be honest, hotels are the worst option! Hotels tend to be overpriced and you rarely get the luxuries of home.  

Vacation rentals offer so much more. We first learned this while traveling to Italy. On our second European vacation, we stayed at vacation rental apartments throughout our holiday. Not only were they cheaper than staying in a hotel, but the rentals gave us more space and the same luxuries as home.

Most vacation rentals have full kitchens or kitchenettes so making food is super easy. We saved so much money by being able to buy our own food and also had a blast acting like locals at markets. On top of this, we were able to eat outside because unlike hotels a lot of rentals come with outdoor balconies/terraces. 

Vacation rentals are even more ideal for families. I often get asked by people how we’re able to travel with a young child and I always cite staying at vacation rentals as the reason. We took our daughter, Ava, to Europe when she turned 1 year old and we never had to worry about keeping her milk fresh because we had a fridge everywhere we traveled. Cleaning her messy clothes was easy because we had washing machines at most rentals.

    Oh wow! I am always jealous of those that get to travel over seas as my husband is afraid to fly. I really have to have him put his fear into perspective.

    I love the way you and your husband think! We love traveling too. Now that we both mostly work from home (him in sales and me with my online fitness clients), we’ve been able to do a lot more travel. He’s found some vacation rentals a few time, but it’s great to have a reminder that we have a few options. Thanks for sharing :)

    I’ve thought about vacation rentals before, but I didn’t know where to start with them. I appreciate having a trusted place like Wynham to work with.
