The 10 Best Rental Apps To Vacation On The Cheap
There is nothing quite like taking a vacation during the summer. You can go camping with your S-O or score a vacation rental for the perfect girls' trip. But the cost that comes along with travel is sometimes a little hard to swallow. On top of renting a place to stay, you need to stock up on travel-sized products, buy plenty of food, and figure out your vacation wardrobe. That's why we rounded up 10 rental apps — for everything from boats to camera gear — that will save you some cash so you can vacation guilt-free.
Swimply (Free on IOS and Google)
If you're looking to have some fun in the sun, check out Swimply, which is like AirBnB for pools. You can rent private pools by the hour, no matter where you're located.
