I’m going to spill the beans about Colorado ski lodging today!
As many of you know, I do a lot of traveling. I typically travel to resort ski resorts and a few other sun/beach destinations. I do this to stay well connected to my customers and existing businesses in addition to bring more value to our returning guests.
I’m often asked how I do it. Where do I find the time to manage a business, stay in such stylish properties, save money and travel that much? It costs companies a lot of money to travel, and it’s not like my business is a Fortune 500 company nor the latest IPO that has earned millions of dollars.
Well, if the truth be told, about 90% of all the lodging I stay at are vacation rentals; either condos or private homes. This enables me to save up to 50% on travel expenses versus staying at a hotel. Unless I’m entertaining business associates at a restaurant, I typically cook my own breakfast and dinner to save hundreds of dollars, secure free parking, issue no gratuities, pay no hotel taxes, and 9 times out of 10 get free wireless internet service, and so much more.
About 5 months ago, I found this great website called www.GondolaResorts.com. They have hundreds of vacation rentals that I can book right off their website or by calling one of the agents.
From there, this easy to use service allows me to browse several resort properties at Aspen, Breckenridge,Copper Mountain, Deer Valley, Steamboat Springs, Telluride, Park City and many other resort locations. It’s really tailored to me because most of my business is in the Rocky Mountains.
Most of the vacation rentals I choose offers me a king bedroom, master suite, fireplace (for the winter), indoor/outdoor pool, sauna, heated parking, full kitchen and quick access in and out. If I’m in the mood for a more spacious accommodation, I’ll ask for a private home. This allows me to save money on meeting space at a hotel. I’ve had meetings with 20 people in a luxurious dining room of a 12,000 square foot home in Breckenridge, Colorado before. This saved my company $2200 on meeting space. It’s no secret that Vacation Rentals offer much more space than hotel rooms, also.
So, now you know one of my best kept secrets about how to travel in style, save money and enjoy such a vast assortment of lodging options. It’s been written over and over again that vacation rentals save people money while giving consumers more for their money. I strongly recommend this service. The costs vary so call them yourself.
The amount of money you’ll save, and the amount of fun you’ll have doing it will likely make this the best new strategy of the year.
Thanks for letting me share this with you.
