Last spring I went to Miami for a large electronic music festival they have there every year. The first step is usually to look for plane tickets and figure out \”is this doable\” in terms of making it down there from NYC. I never thought that this year I would discover a place better than some high-end resorts!

After you get your flight booked, while youare still putting off paying for your event tickets (which you should get during the presale so you donat end up kicking yourself for having to pay $30 extra), you need to figure out where youare going to stay.

The Rental Industry is on rise. This is particularly true to places that attract most tourists. This industry is providing a great service to those people who are really into their comfort and taking their time enjoying their vacation. AN increase in demand of car for rent may not be only due to tourists but also because car owners are now looking for car rental because their car is broken or in the shop for monthly check-up. Also the growing popularity of “road trip” especially for the young ones helped in the growth of the rental industry.
