Arranging Rental Self Catering Holiday

Unlike a hotel, you don’t need to worry about the other guests hogging all of the sun beds. All those annoying things about staying in a hotel, like paying well over the odds for food and drink, or needing to tip the staff every five minutes, just don’t apply. Whether you fancy quiet time with a small family group, or want to party with a bunch of friends, splitting the cost of a villa between you will often work out cheaper than individually paying for hotels.

The only time there might be a problem is when it comes to getting people to leave the villa to go explore. The chances are everyone will be chilling by the pool and not want to leave. But hey, they are on holiday!

There are tips to finding the perfect holiday rental

Firstly you need to decide where you want to go. There are many websites which offer Villas and apartments to rent. Most of these just act as introducers to the actual owners of the property. Find a website which has Villas in the area you wish to rent. This should have information you need about the Villas, such as: is it suitable for children, or the elderly, does it have wheelchair access and if it is suitable for pets. If there is anything you need to know which isn’t on the site you should Email the website owners. Finding out these things early on, can save you a lot of hassle later on.

Secondly, you should check the testimonials, on the website, for the Villas you are interested in. These will tell you the experiences of previous guests and can be vital in helping you choose the right villa. If the website doesn’t have testimonials it is probably a good idea to switch to a site which does.

Be prepared to pay a deposit to secure your villa. Anything between 10% and 50% is normal. Make sure you find out how the deposit is returned and about any potential extra charges for cleaning or damage and fees for using the telephone. You will also need to pay for the villa before you arrive.

Make sure you have adequate travel insurance which covers you and your family while you stay in the villa. There are special policies available which cover villa rentals.

Before you leave make sure you have the following information: The address of the villa, the owner or managers contact details, the keys to the villa – or an arranged place to collect them and directions from the airport, or a pick-up booked.

Finally, when your holiday is finished, don’t forget to go back to the website where you found your villa and leave a testimonial about your experience. This will help future guests find the perfect villa for their holiday.
