Want a vacation rental in Spain but don't want to be fooled or spend money on a home that you thought was your best choice, only to find that you made a big mistake? Or you are interested in cheap vacation rentals in Spain … or even a package deal!
Below are some solid tips to help you find and rent a holiday home without any hassle and trouble, and even save you money.
You know what you get
When looking for short term vacation rentals in Spain, everything should be included. Always double check your hidden costs in your account. Do you have Wi-Fi or internet? Is it basic or premium? Does the price include whole months? Maybe the internet is free up to the first 5 gigabytes.
What if you have to leave early? will you receive a partial refund? They might tell you everything is on, but check invoices just to be sure, as it can be up to a certain amount.
Knowledge of managers
Knowing the manager of a vacation home is very important. Your contract should state that the correct contact information is for you when you need help. What if your washing machine or hot water is no longer working … and you have 3 weeks left to rest.
Try to keep your contact information inside and outside the holiday home so you can always get in touch. If you can get another person to contact, do it! Make sure you have at least the owner's phone and email.
Family and pets
If you are a pet, look for a pet holiday in Spain! Imagine traveling all the way to your holiday home only to find out that pets are not allowed in the home. Some dislike when previous guests had a pet (hygiene).
Or if you have 3 kids and the guest room only has a king sized bed … that could be a big problem. Make sure you look at enough pictures of the house to be sure. Check the location … is it safe for children? Is it close to local activities?
Reservation of wounds
Book early to make sure everything is as promised. At certain times of the year, villa rentals are very busy for the holidays, so try to book early. You can look for a holiday with a little off season availability to get better deals.
Don't be shy and contact the property owner / manager, most of these holiday accommodations have a package deal. Maybe they could offer a rental car, cheap flights, attractive tickets and more … Just ask and see for yourself.
Now you have the tips you need to rent a holiday home that fits your needs.
