BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- Summer rentals don't just disappear with the holiday traffic after Memorial Day, but late-game renters need to keep their sunglass-protected eyes open if they still want to score a place to stay this season.With Memorial Day gone and the Fourth of July fast approaching, summer rental season is in full swing and the number of vacationers continues to swell. American Express' ( AXP) Spending and Saving Tracker found that 59% of Americans plan to travel despite high gas prices and will spend an average of $1,200 on their summer vacation this year. About 70% of those travelers are hitting the road with families this year, up from only 45% last year.
