TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site, recently announced the results of its 6th annual vacation rentals survey of more than 1,800 U.S. respondents.
Besides finding that 59 percent of respondents plan to stay at a vacation rental this year, the survey revealed the beach/ocean is the most popular setting for a vacation rental stay in 2015. Indeed, 63 percent of respondents said they will rent by the shore. Top months for vacation rental stays this year are June, July and August.
“Vacation rentals are becoming increasingly popular as more travelers discover the outstanding amenities, comfort, and value a rental can offer,” said Brooke Ferencsik, director of communications for TripAdvisor. “With summer the most popular time for vacation rental stays, savvy travelers should book early for the best options.”
