In a TripAdvisor survey in the US, 52 percent of respondents said they plan to stay at a self-catering holiday villa or cottage this year, up eight percent on the number recorded in 2013. The top three reasons travellers will choose a vacation rental over a hotel stay this year are: more living space (67%), lower rates than hotels (53%), and better amenities (50%). Ninety-four percent of respondents who have previously stayed in a rental said they were satisfied with their experiences.
"Travellers love vacation rentals for the at-home experience and amenities that make them ideal for family and group trips, not to mention the potential savings when compared to hotels," said Brooke Ferencsik, director of communications at TripAdvisor. "With the increased demand for vacation rentals, the best rental properties book quickly during the peak summer months; so travellers should plan as soon as possible to secure the best property for their needs."
