There are so many different options to choose from when it comes to booking your holiday and it can be difficult to decide what to do, should you do the same as you do every year or have a little change and do something different? One key factor in choosing your holiday is accommodation type, as many will know this makes a huge difference to your trip. Holiday rentals are becoming more and more popular with holiday makers and we will explain why.With the current economic climate it seems most appropriate to discuss the issue of price first. One of the benefits of holiday rentals is the fact that it is usually considerably cheaper than staying in a hotel or buying a package holiday.This is partly because you only pay for the property rental and then you can accommodate the members of your family or party according to how many beds there are. This differs from a hotel as you would normally have to pay per person or per room
Another reason why hotels are more expensive is the fact that the price you pay needs to cover so many expenses such as staff wages (maids, receptionists, porters, management, caterers, service staff etc) plus a decent enough profit to make it worthwhile. With privately owned property which is available for holiday rental it doesn’t have any staff wages to cover except for a cleaner to come in before each rental, and of course if the owners live nearby they can do it themselves, making their expenses even less.The second benefit of holiday rental we will come to is the idea of privacy. In a hotel you are basically living in a certain amount of space with so many complete strangers, and you must be considerate of these other guests at all times. Whatever you choose to do you will always be surrounded by other people unless you stay in your room, and even then you may get the maids knocking at your door.With a holiday rental you are completely in private with just the people you have chosen to holiday with. No need to queue for sun beds, food, drinks, or for the reception staff when you have a question or problem. Also if you have babies and infants you don’t need to worry about them disturbing other guests or vice versa; if you don’t have children then you don’t need to be disturbed by other people’s little ones.Choosing holiday rentals allows you to enjoy all your usual holiday activities but in a home away from home. You will have all the space you need so that you and your family are not living together in a tiny space, there will usually be a garden/pool area, balconies and terraces, lounge area with TV, dining area, multiple separate bedrooms, bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen. Having this kitchen allows you to have the choice of either cooking yourself and eating in, or going out to the nearby restaurants, so you can make your holiday even more varied and save a little more money in the process.
