Just got back from visiting the fam? Now it's time for a real vacation.
The holidays may come with vacation time, but they can also be stressing. It's natural to come back from visiting the family completely exhausted. Luckily, it's super cheap to take a vacation right after the start of the new year.
Step one: go for a boutique hotel or vacation rental instead of a hotel room. "The chain name hotels go first because that's what people know and call," Hotels.com and Getaroom.com founder Bob Diener tells us. VacationHomeRentals.com reports that their users saves vacationers an average of 15 - 50 percent by renting a vacation home.
Some of the destinations you can get a sweet deal on VacationHomeRentals.com are Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach, New York City, New Orleans and Galveston, Texas. The site has deals in those cities ranging from $35 to $80 a night.
So if you can't bear going back to work just yet, the option to extend your vacation a little bit longer is there - and costs less than you think.
