Travel deals in Florida and beyond

Some of the links in this post are special! When you make a purchase through our links, we might earn a commission at no additional cost to you. Read full disclosure here.

Are you looking for Florida travel deals? Now, that’s paradise. We’ve rounded up travel deals from Travelzoo, Groupon and others so you can see all the current offerings at a glance. Whether you’re dreaming of a trip to Machu Picchu, a family vacation to Orlando or a half-price staycation at a Miami Beach Art Deco hotel, you’ll find it here.

The two main options you’ll have when booking a vacation are hotel accommodations, or a vacation rental (house, apartment, condo, cabin, etc). 

Hotels

Hotels are easy and convenient. You can stay one night, or as long as you need. Staff is on site to address any issues, and may be able to give tips and suggestions about the area. You aren’t responsible for cleaning at the end of your trip (besides picking up after yourself out of respect). Hotels may offer more amenities such as a pool, fitness area, on-site food and snack options, discounts for area attractions, shuttles, and more.

Hotels are perfect if you want to be closer to attractions, and don’t need a lot of room to spread out.  Families larger than 5 may need to book an additional room or a suite depending on occupancy restrictions. Suites are especially nice for families, and allow young kids to have an earlier bedtime than the adults.

If you stay in a hotel you will have to dine out for most of your meals, unless you book a room with a kitchenette. Hotel rooms typically offer a small fridge to keep some food in your room for snacks, drinks, quick meals (like sandwich ingredients for lunch), and leftovers.

Many hotels offer a continental breakfast of fruit and coffee, while others provide a free full breakfast buffet for guests. If you are able to eat breakfast at your hotel, you could save $20 to $60 per day (or more) for a family of five compared to getting fast food or dining at a restaurant. 

Check for parking charges before you book if you have a vehicle with you. Some hotels charge $20 to $50 and up PER NIGHT in cities and destinations where parking is limited, and may charge for in/out privileges. That can add to costs significantly.

We’ve partnered with aResTravel to offer hotel deals to travelers coming to Florida and Miami. If you’re traveling to Florida, or welcoming guests to Miami, please check out some of these deals. You can also find deals to other cities if you’re traveling away from Florida on vacation.

You can book online, or by phone at 888-330-9972.

Vacation rentals

If you are traveling with a group or have a large family, the cost of booking multiple hotel rooms can add up quickly. With vacation rentals, such as houses, condos, cabins, and apartments, you can fit multiple families or a group of friends, and divide the costs. You’ll have more personal space to spread out in a rental.

Parents can take turns watching all of the kids while others go out or spend some time alone. In addition, if you have young kids that go to sleep earlier, they can go to sleep in bedrooms while older kids and adults stay awake longer to socialize or watch TV in the common areas. Rentals typically have minimum stays of 4 to 7 nights, which may vary between peak and off-peak season.

Most vacation rentals offer a full kitchen, 1 to 10+ bedrooms, plus living room space, laundry facilities, and parking for your vehicle. They also may include extras such as beach towels, umbrellas, beach toys, bikes, games, books, and more. Some rentals offer pack-n-plays, highchairs, or other gear for young children if requested and available.

While rentals may be less expensive than booking hotel rooms, they can come with additional responsibilities. Some rental properties have a long list of rules and restrictions, and may require you to vacuum, start laundry, and clean before you leave. It’s very important to communicate with the rental owner before you arrive so you understand all of the policies and/or amenities.

While they are cleaned in between guests, the range of cleanliness when you arrive can vary between rentals, and cleaners aren’t on site if you’re unsatisfied. Property management may not be on site for individual homes, so issues may take longer to be resolved. Rentals usually have more decorative items, and if these are accidentally broken, you may lose out on your security deposit.

It’s important to research the location of the rental so you can ensure it’s a safe area consistent with your expectations. Owners can portray their properties however they choose, so reading reviews can be very important and helpful.

If you have kids staying with you, we suggest taking photos of the rental when you arrive, and then moving/adjusting anything breakable or not child safe during your stay. The photos can help you return the items to where they belong when its time to leave.

If you see anything damaged when you arrive, make sure the owner is notified immediately so you won’t be held responsible. Many use property management and cleaning companies, so the owners don’t always see the units in between rentals.
