Come March and April, students around the world close their text books and open their suitcases as they pack for an adventure to remember - Spring Break Vacation. While thousands, no doubt, will still make their way to traditional student "hot spots" like Daytona Beach, Florida, many others this year are choosing destinations with a more exotic flair. This includes the Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico and many countries in Europe.

How is it possible to create exciting Spring Break and Easter vacations on a tight student budget? One option growing in popularity is the vacation rental route. To help cut costs, students often travel together in groups of four to ten or twelve. They choose a destination city and then locate a large home, villa - even an estate - with multiple bedrooms and baths, so the entire group can stay together. The cost per person is considerably less than the cost of hotel rooms, and often the amenities and d?cor are far more extensive.

Vacation rental homes, villas and condominiums can easily be found through websites designed for just that purpose. These websites make it easy for you to choose your vacation by location, number of bedrooms and baths, amenities and price. Photographs, descriptions and a host of other details are all spelled out for you, simplifying the process of making comparisons. On most sites, once you find a home or condominium that fits your specific needs, you are invited to contact the owner directly to answer your additional questions. To further simplify the reservation process, websites such as Villa4vacation.com offer a Credit Card Acceptance Program which enables many vacation rental owners to easily accept credit card payments.

Most people are surprised at the bargains they can find when traveling together as a group or large family. Whether you're looking for two bedrooms or many, a big-city condominium or sprawling country estate, search-engine technology lets you hone in on the vacation home of your dreams with amazing economy.

In the beautiful Grand Cayman Islands, for example, your group can enjoy a newly constructed, newly decorated, five bedroom/five bath beachfront home with an in-ground pool from just $3,750 per week. If Italy is more your style, how about the newly built Casa Bella Vista or "House with the Beautiful View"? It's a four bedroom/three bath villa with spectacular views of Lake Bracciano, just north of Rome, that can be yours starting from $2,000 a week. Then there's a six-bedroom,11,500 square foot Mexican villa in Colima, resting on the tip of the Lapunta peninsula, featuring a spectacular 270 degree view of land and sea - the Pacific Ocean. The infinity pool, sun deck, private beach and tennis courts can be yours from just $500 a day. These are just a sampling of the hundreds of vacation rental options available year-round in prime locations around the world.

In addition to vacation rental listings, the more comprehensive vacation rental sites, like Villa4vacation.com, also provide airline and car rental discounts, travel insurance and convenient restaurant listings - with easy-click access. Visitors can plan an entire vacation trip, compare prices and amenities, purchase travel tickets and other discounts, all at one website.
