RENTALO.COM OFFERS AFFORDABLE APARTMENT RENTALS IN EUROPE
Miami, FL, March 26, 2009—The British pound is lower, the euro is lower and transatlantic air fares are lower than they've been in years. Even if you think you can't afford a trip to Europe this year, think again. Europe is very affordable right now, especially if you rent an apartment through www.Rentalo.com , the leading online vacation rental directory. Everyone knows that vacation rentals are a good deal, providing more space at a lesser price than traditional lodging alternatives. What isn't so well known is that having a kitchen can save you big bucks, too. A kitchen means you can make your own breakfast, pack your own lunch and even cook (or reheat takeout) dinners. Rentalo offers apartments of varying size and price—all over the Continent—including the following:
