I'm going to be doing some travelling this year, hopefully a fair amount after May but obviously as any traveller will tell you the majority of their cash is allocated towards housing. I've heard a lot about house swaps and private apartment/condo/house rentals but never really thought I'd be interested. Apparently there is some decent savings in doing this. Has anyone ever does this? For example, I found Cyber Rentals online and it looks pretty cool. Anyone can go online and compare hotel accommodations to the cost of a private rental and see if there is any savings. Can anyone recommend any other site or perhaps tell me some things to do and not do when looking? Some of the cities I'll be in are Jackonsville (for work...so that is paid for), NC, NYC, and eventually I'll head up to Canada because I'm out of maple syrup.
