On the eve of the holidays, ads for rent start flocking on the Net. The holiday period is a moment to pamper! To successfully organize your stay, choosing a vacation rental is essential.
Apartment, villa or campsite
Before surfing holiday rental offers, you must first define the type of property you are looking for. Campsites today offer comfortable mobile homes or prime locations to install your caravan. For a family or a stay with friends, renting a villa with pool is the must. And finally, an apartment or studio located in the heart of the city allows you to visit the sights easily on foot or drive around the area by car.
Read reviews and comments
On many rental sites customers have the opportunity to leave comments and rate the rental with stars. These opinions are generally reliable and inform you if the owner is welcoming and if the property is of quality.
Precautions to take
Before sending a deposit, distrust! Ask about the renter and check his address. A good tip is to ask a friend to book the rental on the same dates. If the owner agrees, then it’s a scam. You can also view the location on Google Maps. If the address falls on a landfill, there is “eel under rock” and this misadventure has already happened to unlucky vacationers. All the renters are not honest.
Leisure activities around the rental location
If you like to be active and to play sports, we suggest you go for a home situated near activities you like
On vacation, we like to relax and be quiet but it is also very convenient to have shops, pharmacies, restaurants, bars close to your rental.
What area ?
The size of the property depends on the number of people present and your desires. If you are a homebody, choose a space large enough to feel comfortable, maybe a terrace or a pool to spend time reading, playing with your family, doing barbecues … If you like going out and party, interior design is not your priority and prefer a city center where there are bars, restaurants, discotheques …
Comfort and Wi-Fi
Carefully detail the inventory of furniture and household equipment: washing machine, microwave, television, coffee machine … and of course the internet connection, a must which is very useful on vacation to locate the roads or monuments to visit.
