Things to remember while planning a vacation

Despite the excitement of sudden unplanned travel trips, you can gain a lot by careful planning. Not only do you end up saving money, you can also avoid unexpected hassles that may come up in your trip. After all, the last thing you want is an unexpected hiccup to spoil the holiday charm when you head for that long-awaited trip with your family.

While there is no specific guidebook for this, yet there are some key decisions that you must make well in advance. First and foremost is about the time and duration of your trip. You can save a huge amount on your air tickets if you book in advance. This holds most true for those who book their tickets online. Many a times, you will find a travel portal offering you that unbelievable deal on air tickets. Go for it!

And then it’s the question of going in ‘season’ or in ‘off-season’. While it obviously makes sense to go in the season time, yet it is in off-season that you get the best deals.

Once you have worked on the above factors, it is also prudent to finalize the stay option. Holiday Vacation Rental Apartments can save a good deal of money by opting to stay in a furnished vacation rental premises. And it’s not about savings alone, you get to enjoy the warm hospitality of the owner as opposed to the curt behaviour of the hotel staff.

Considering the above factors can help make your travel trip memorable and hassle-free.

Top Myths about Vacation Rentals

Despite the rapid rise in their popularity, travellers across the world still have a number of myths in their minds about vacation rentals. All across the world, governments and trade associations are doing their best to promote vacation rentals as a great travel option.

Yet there are many misconceptions that sometimes make a traveller wary of staying in a vacation rental premises. Here are some of them:


Myth No.1: Poor Infrastructure: It is often believed that since they cost less, vacation rentals are poorly furnished and do not offer modern comforts and facilities to guests. While this may be true for some, yet this trend is changing fast. Many vacation rental owners are running their premises as a professional business and hence they are very conscious of the level of quality and facilities they offer. The vacation rental industry has matured significantly in the past few years and therefore you can expect them to offer a fairly decent infrastructure.

Myth No. 2: Unprofessional Environment: While its true that you will not find uniformed stewards at your service in vacation rental properties, yet that does not mean that you cannot expect quality service. Most owners of vacation rentals now believe in hiring some personnel as help and support to the guests for their housekeeping, laundry, food and other requirements. In fact, the service that you receive in a vacation rental premises is often more personalised and informal as compared to the artificial and curt support that you receive in a hotel.

Myth No. 3: Absence of Online Booking: A not-so-insignificant percentage of vacation rental owners are making a move towards modern business methods and online booking is one of them. In many countries of Europe and America, today it is not hard to find vacation rental properties that you can book online.
