Weather Trends: Best Weeks to Book a Summer Rental

Filed Under: Weather
This year’s summer vacation rental season is upon us -- but before you book, be mindful of the weather! You’ve scoured the rental sites for information on the very best homes for rent in some of the world’s most sought-after vacation rental destinations. You’ve clicked through thousands of photos, studied maps and read reviews. You’ve picked the perfect rental house, and now you’re ready to put down your deposit and book your trip, right?

Wrong! As perfect as that rental may be, the last thing anyone wants to do on a vacation is get stuck inside the house the whole time because of bad weather. Sure, the house may be stocked with plenty of puzzles, but you don’t need to schlep everyone all the way to Hawaii or London to tackle a 1,000-piecer.

With your family’s sanity in mind, we’ve asked the meteorologists at weathertrends360 for advice on the best weeks to book a vacation in some of our favorite destinations.
