If you’re planning a vacation in the next few months, your Switch ticket will likely pay for itself.

At Switch, not only will Packlate CEO and founder Steve Barsh show off how Packlate works, but he will also show us how to get a “screamer of a deal.”

“People always ask, ‘How can I really book this [house] without waiting until the last possible minute?’,” he says. “I’ll show you how.”

Right now on Packlate, you can book a three day stay in Cosa Rica for less than $250. Of course, that rate applies if you’re willing to leave in, say, the next six hours.

Being impulsive enough to take up such a deal is the premise of Packlate, a West Conshohocken-based website that helps private vacation homeowners fill unused inventory while giving flexible travelers a deal.

Started by Barsh, a former managing partner at DreamIt Ventures, Packlate has expanded quickly since we last spoke with the company. The site now allows users to book vacations in over 20 locations with more planned.
