Renting a holiday villa is one of the most liberating choices you can make when it comes to going on holiday. Although with the current economic climate more and more people are having ‘staycations’ there is still room for the discerning traveller or holidaymaker to snap up a bargain.
“Pick and mix” is often how I think of holiday villa rentals. Do I need a pool? Do I need car parking space? Am I near night life? Am I near the beach? With a holiday villa rental, you can choose exactly what you want. No more compromising on quality for location as is often the case with package holidays. You can also look for various sites online such as https://www.dubaicreekliving.ae/ and many more.
One of the joys of renting a holiday villa comes in the preparation, you organise your own flights and although some holiday villa landlords will help you with this, you can snap up a bargain from some of the no frills / budget airlines.
When packing for your villa holiday remember although some things are supplied, you may have to take your own bedding or towels. Make sure you read the ‘small print’ thoroughly and confirm what is supplied with the holiday home rental. There is nothing worse than having to buy towels in resort because you thought they were supplied and then having squash them into your suitcase for the return journey.
Holiday insurance is another area where you can make savings. Sites like Money Supermarket will give you like for like holiday travel insurance comparisons, you are no longer bound by what your travel agent recommends. Don’t forget you may get a better deal from a supermarket if you have a loyalty card and they offer an incentive.
