Season’s Savings: Travelers Expected to Save $93 per Night on Average on


Vacation Rental Stays During Shoulder Season


AUSTIN, Texas, September 6, 2017 – New data from HomeAway®  reveals that prices on vacation rentals drop significantly starting in September, with nightly rates lowering double digit percentages on average in many of the United States’ hottest vacation destinations. Travelers to cities such as San Diego, Myrtle Beach and Chicago can save an average of $93 per night on their vacation rentals by waiting for shoulder season.

Even more savings are in store for travelers who stay in whole homes, such as those available on HomeAway’s site. Equipped with kitchens and living rooms, whole homes offer more space, value and privacy than hotel rooms and shared accommodations. In fact, one HomeAway study found that travelers can save hundreds on expenses such as restaurant bills, parking costs and laundry fees by opting to stay in a vacation rental over a hotel.

The world leader in vacation rentals has ranked the top ten destinations where travelers can save the most this shoulder season:



  1. Portland, Maine
  2. Bridgeport, New York
  3. Chicago, Illinois
  4. Sunriver, Oregon
  5. Frisco, North Carolina
  6. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
  7. Anchorage, Alaska
  8. San Diego, California
  9. Keystone, Colorado
  10. Seattle, Washington
