Traveling—whether you’re staying in an eight-bedroom Cape Cod cottage mere blocks from the ocean, a quaint log cabin in rural Utah, or anything in between—can get expensive. No one understands this better than Vrbo, which is why the vacation rentals marketplace is having the ultimate giveaway sweepstakes. From today through the end of the month, anyone (we’ll get to eligibility in a moment) can win a $3,500 cash prize to be used for any Vrbo vacation rental accommodations listed on the site.
As long as you’re at least 18 years old and a legal resident of the U.S., you can enter to win. All you have to do is follow Vrbo on Instagram, like this post, and tag three friends in the comments. Peep all of the giveaway details here. Rest assured, though; there’s no catch. Plus, you can invite as many friends as your chosen vacation rental can accommodate, so pick your digs wisely.
Another thing to note, you can book your trip anytime after winning the Book-It List sweepstakes, so if you’re pining for a summer vacation, there’s no need to wait until June. That said, if you prefer frolicking in the snow and curling up under a throw in front of a crackling wood-burning fire, reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. In fact, keep scrolling as Vrbo also revealed exactly when you should book to snag the best deals based on the getaway you want. Make note of these dates and we guarantee your travel budget will go a long way!
