Renting holiday home ‘cheaper than hotels’

Have your say

Renting holiday accommodation in cities like Edinburgh, rather than staying in hotels, could be the answer for cash-strapped families this winter.

Holiday rental properties can be up to 64% cheaper for a one-week stay than hotels, according to a survey by TripAdvisor.

In addition to Edinburgh other UK destinations where big savings could be made include Inverness and the cities of Bath, York and Cardiff.

But families staying in London would actually be marginally better off staying in a hotel than renting.
