A tough economy needn't mean sacrificing a vacation this year. It just means vacationing smarter so travelers get more for their money. has announced new mobile phone access technology to simplify the process of finding exceptional value on a vacation home, villa or condominium rental.

"As one of the most user-friendly vacation rental websites, our goal is to help travelers get more luxury, amenities and value on their summer, fall or winter vacation," says Rosalind Sedacca, public relations director for

Our new mobile phone access feature enables vacationers to browse properties for rent right from their cell phones to maximize the website's easy-search convenience. The technology makes it faster and easier for browsers to choose by location, number of bedrooms and baths, amenities and price. Photographs, descriptions and a host of other details are all spelled out, simplifying the process of making comparisons.

According to Sedacca, there are many reasons why budget-minded vacationers should consider rent a vacation residence -- instead of a hotel room.

Choosing a vacation home, villa or condominium is usually two to three times less expensive than a comparable quality hotel. In most cases the rental will provide significantly greater square footage, which easily lends itself to large families or group travel. Fireplaces, spas, private swimming pools, sports equipment and technology "toys" also add to the appeal of a vacation rental option.

Utilizing today's most sophisticated search technology, makes finding the perfect match for specific travel needs easier than ever. "Consider the advantages of being able to put the kids to sleep, close the door and comfortably relax on the sofa while watching big screen TV or movies in the living room while popcorn is heating in the microwave," adds Sedacca.

"Because you can cook your own meals in a fully equipped kitchen, your group can save additional funds by avoiding eating out every meal. That alone can add up to more cash for spending on recreation amenities such as boat rentals, park admissions, night life and other vacation lures," she says.

Sedacca offers some examples from the database. A five bedroom house located on one of the 7 Hills in Rome rents for between $76 and $145 per day, depending on time of year. The home has a satellite plasma screen TV in the master bedroom and is also pet-friendly, ideal for large family economy.

On Cozumel Island in Mexico a vacationing group can enjoy a private four master-bedroom villa featuring a two-level swimming pool with fountain and garden from just $1,695 per week for up to 8 guests. That's about $32 per day per person - a bargain in any language.

Once a traveler finds a rental that fits their particular needs, they are invited to contact the owner directly to answer all their additional questions. For added convenience, Villa4vacation offers a Credit Card Acceptance Program, which enables many vacation rental owners to easily accept credit card payments.

The website also offers Really Simple Syndication (RSS), delivering summaries of the newest listings to a traveler's favorite search engine portals -- including MyYahoo, MyGoogle, MyAOL and MYMSN - with regular updates. This eliminates the need to visit multiple sites to access the content vacationers are searching for.
