This year, the fine folks at Rent Like a Champion are once again partnering with HLS to spread the news of affordable weekend rentals in South Bend during football season and major events like commencement. The ND alumni-founded business has saved over 3,000 Notre Dame football fans serious cash from the hotel gouging in the area, as well as making South Bend homeowners over $3 million in extra income.
Now, they are expanding their rental business nationwide.
While Rent Like a Champion has operated a rental network, all of the different sites across the nation have operated under different names. Now, all of those different sites will be under the Rent Like a Champion brand. Last year, Rent Like a Champion saw nearly 1,000 homeowners in 17 cities sign up for their service, allowing them to accommodate over 25,000 guests.
“Uniting our service under the Rent Like a Champion brand will not only help us grow more efficiently, but it also shows the company’s Notre Dame roots and our longstanding ties to the South Bend community,” said CEO, Mike Doyle, “We are truly grateful to the people in South Bend who have helped us get to this point. Our company has come a long way since we started, but none of it would have been possible without the support of our first homeowners and renters here in South Bend who believed in us.”
Personally, there is no other way that I would travel out to South Bend for a football weekend than with a Rent Like a Champion rental. I’m not just saying this because they are helping us pay the bills either. There is simply no more affordable way to stay in South Bend with family or a group of friends than renting. Plus, many of the properties that I’ve stayed at have had things like fire pits or grills that make hosting your own tailgate, after-party, or ‘Backer pre-party incredibly easy.
So if you are heading to Notre Dame this year, check them out if you haven’t before. And now, if you happen to be travelling to another city for a football weekend, make sure to check if Rent Like a Champion has rentals available in the area!
