  1. What information can you provide about traveling with multiple families and whether renting a larger home for multiple families is advised, or overall cheaper and more efficient…or even available. Thanks.

    • Hi Kha,

      Renting a single large home can often be cost-effective, you just want to look really closely at what sleeping spaces and bed options are provided to make sure it meets everyone’s needs. We’ve done it a few times and sometimes it has worked great while other times it has not. For instance, little kids tend not to do great in loft-type sleeping spaces that are open to the great room while some couples may not want to bunk up with their kids.

      Best,

      Melissa
