Summer Travel Deals for Procrastinators

If you plan to take a trip to the beach this summer but haven't booked a place to stay yet, you're in luck -- not only because rentals still are available but also because they're slashing prices. According to, several cottages and condos have discounts up to 50% on weekly stays.

If you have a favorite beach, check with rental companies to see if any vacation rental owners are offering a discount -- plenty are. My family and I recently stayed at a beachfront condo in Wrightsville Beach, N.C., that had $250 knocked off the weekly price.
