RENTALO.COM THE AFFORDABLE WAY TO DO EUROPE
Miami, FL, September 25, 2008 — Since the weak dollar is stronger against the euro than it was just a few short months ago, this might be the time to think about a trip to Europe. More good reasons for a fall trip: The weather is comfortable, the crowds are fewer and Rentalo.com offers vacation rental apartments that are far less expensive than hotels. (Apartments with fully-equipped kitchens also mean you can make your own breakfast, pack your own lunch and even cook some dinners.) And Rentalo's new website design makes renting easier than ever with a photo slide show of each property, as well as a new property map, complete description, prominent contact information and an availability calendar—all on the same wider page. Some of the European properties listed:
