Tips for Choosing a Vacation Rental

Posted by Royal Sundaram on 04 Jun 2012

Nowadays more travelers choose turning to vacation rental homes over hotels when planning a vacation. The basic reason for this is the convenience and economy of accommodation. Having a house to yourself gives you the freedom you desire from your days off.

There are many advantages to spending your vacation in a rental home, but knowing what to look for and how to choose one can be tricky. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when choosing a vacation rental.

Plan your Source:
Be sure if you want to rent the place through a third party agency or directly from the owner. Renting a vacation rental directly from the owner can be easier on the pocket and reliable. Renting from an agent might add to costs but you have the luxury of various options in one destination.

Be Specific of what you want:
Create a list of requirements and don’t forget to ask detailed questions about the property. Question and clarify all your queries regarding the place, like distance from the nearest grocery store, electricity or water problems if any and distance from the nearest tourist attractions etc.

Reviews and References:
Reviews and references of prior guests can be of great help. Choose a vacation rental where you can get a review or get in touch with a reference as a lot of online rental websites often have misleading information. A second opinion is always helpful in that case.

Guarantees and documentation:
Don’t forget to enquire about the refund policies and the guarantee. Also, a detailed rental agreement is important as it spells out the responsibilities and form of payment of the renter and the owner.

Finally, opt for comfort. Make sure the place you choose is comfortable in every sense of the word for the relaxation you desire and deserve.
