Air mattresses are a great way to maximize the sleeping accommodations of your next vacation rental—whether you need added beds for extra adults, last-minute guests, children, or if you happen to be staying at a minimalist camping cabin with a bare-bones interior. And best of all, most models are extremely portable, comfortable, and can be set up in just minutes, so you can worry less about where everyone is going to be sleeping and focus on getting your vacation started.
