Due to the pandemic, travelers are seeking private accommodations like condos, cabins, and stand-alone villas as a way to social-distance while enjoying a vacation. Whether you’re looking for a beach villa, off-the-beaten-path hideaway, or mountainside chalet, here are some ways to get the best deals on your accommodations.

When to Go

Because of COVID-19, there may not be a peak season since people are working remotely and kids are taking virtual or hybrid classes. Instead of searching for dates, start by looking at destinations. This will help you find deals in destinations that are usually pricey.

Where to Go

Most travelers are choosing to stay closer to home with homes near the U.S. national parks, beaches, and ski towns being among the most desired. One-of-a-kind lodging like yurts, treehouses, and geodesic have become super popular as they offer unique ways to stay in domestic destinations.

How Far to Book Ahead

With travel restrictions and work-from-home flexibility, people are booking last-minute. But, for a better selection and prices, you should book further ahead. When booking, be sure to check cancelation policies in case the restrictions change. This way you can book ahead without having to fear losing money.
