Traveling with an entourage this spring? Here’s a pro-tip: TripAdvisor Rentals can take the pain out of planning a group trip and save you money in the process. Sure, you could reserve a set of hotel rooms and hope for the best, but we can give you a few good reasons why booking a rental means more bang for your buck.
We’ve broken down the median price for a three-bedroom rental in cities across the country, according to TripAdvisor Rental data (pricing data reflects Spring 2017 season). The 15 places featured below cost less than $2,000 total for a weeklong stay. All told, splitting the bill goes a long way toward making hubs like Boston and Seattle more budget-friendly. And then there’s the amenities—formal dining rooms, full kitchens, private pools, and multiple bedrooms, so no one ends up on a rollaway cot.
In a nutshell? Group rentals are easy to book, easy to share, and easy on the wallet—so pick a city, call your crew, and start planning an epic getaway.
Book a rental near downtown and put the best of Boise at your fingertips. You’ll be close to exciting city-center attractions, including museums, breweries, and bike paths like the Greenbelt. Even better? You’ll have plenty of room for your crew to kick back and relax together. Take a hike at Camel’s Back Park, or squeeze in one last ski day at Bogus Basin.

There are some serious perks to visiting Atlanta with a group—starting with the accommodations. Splitting the cost of a historic mansion is cheaper (and roomier!) than booking multiple hotel suites, and with a formal dining table, you can enjoy meals together without the automatic large-party gratuity. Use those savings for a CityPass or an Atlanta Film Tour.
