What are Vacation Rentals?

England Vacation Rentals - London

London is one of the most exciting cities in Europe. Most overseas flights to England land at one of the London airports (Heathrow or Gatwick) and there is good public transportation into the city. Hotels can be expensive, so save some money and stay in a vacation rental apartment.
