Rather than paying nightly rates for multiple hotel rooms, you can pay a flat fee for a multi-room home that will give your group more space and access to amenities like kitchens and laundry machines. You can save money by cooking your own meals and use the home as a base to explore the area.
To demonstrate how renting a vacation home can save a group of travelers money for an extended stay, we compared the cost of renting villas in Tuscany (with room for six people) with the cost of getting two hotel rooms near Siena, Tuscany, for a two week (13-day) stay:
|Vacation Rental||Rental rate||Hotel||Hotel rate|
|Villa in Molino del Piano||$1,605||Best Western Hotel||$2,146|
|Villa in Lucca||$1,760||Hotel Moderno||$4,472|
