And find out how much you will save, based on your destination, # adults, # children, # nights and how much you eat out:

  1. Nice tool. Although it’s only a rough guide, it’s a good indicator of potential savings.

    It seems Tripadvisor is concentrating on the Vacation rentals market, what with Flipkey and all. The competion for Homeaway will be good for owners.

  2. Boavista: Yes, it should be good competition. I am excited to see how much the market expands when Expedia and Orbitz get into it as well.
