It’s one of the most cost-efficient trends in travel – renting out your space while on vacation to subsidize or break even on travel costs. Yes, that means a free vacation without having to enter countless contests or sit through a terrible timeshare presentation. If you know you’re headed on a trip, list your property on a vacation rental site and earn money while you’re away so you can enjoy a much-needed vacation without breaking the bank.
Below are a few examples we’ve curated to show you the kind of trips you can take for free by renting out your pad.
Chicago to Miami:
You live in Chicago, but you’re looking to escape the city’s harsh winter and jet to Miami for a quick weekend getaway with your significant other. Say you reside in a property like this modern apartment on Michigan Ave.
Given that airfare from Chicago to Miami is $275 on average, you would be able to rent out your space for three nights and spend the money on a beachside stay, plus two round-trip plane tickets. You could stay in a beautiful Miami vacation rental like this one with a balcony and bay view!
New York to Paris
If you’re looking to swap out the City that Never Sleeps for the City of Lights, you can
do so with ease. Start by renting out your space. Say you have an apartment
like this stylish Midtown NYC loft.
If you rented out your space for five nights, you would have enough to book this comfortable Paris vacation rental, and a round-trip plane ticket –and you’d still have enough leftover to enjoy the city’s amazing cuisine!
San Francisco to Hawaii
Looking for a break from the San Francisco day to day? You can plan a tropical getaway to the beautiful beaches of Hawaii on a dime. Say your SF home is similar to this designer apartment near Dolores Park.
Rent your space for four nights and escape to the Aloha State. You can choose from a selection of stunning properties like this oceanfront house rental in Hawaii, and even buy round-trip airfare too!
London to Brussels
If you’re looking to spend some time away from London’s fog and take in the sites (and chocolate) of a new destination, head to Brussels! If you live in a home like this London two bedroom apartment, you can take the whole family on a five day Belgian getaway.
Round-trip airfare from the two cities averages $160 – you can get four plane tickets plus five nights in a property like the one below. This luxurious Brussels vacation rental sleeps four and features a spacious terrace overlooking the property’s garden.
