What to Know Before You Go - All About Vacation Rentals

[post_ads_2]
Vacation Rentals have been part of our travels for years. I have a large extended family that I like traveling with and vacation homes work perfectly for us. I also like having a kitchen to cook and have snacks available. I just feel like I have more freedom in a vacation rental and I like it a lot. 

There is just something so freeing about not being crammed into a hotel room. However, they are certainly not for everyone. As with anything travel related, there are pros and cons when renting a vacation home or apartment.

Here are some things to consider before giving your credit card or book that vacation rental. 


1. How long will you be staying? 
[post_ads_2]
First and foremost you need to decide how long you plan to go on vacation. This will be key because many times, the longer you stay, the less the price per night. In fact, there are vacation rentals available for a year or more that tend to be very reasonably priced. 


2. Who will be going?
[post_ads_2]
How many people are in your party and will they all be coming at the same time?
Last year, we rented a three bedroom apartment in Italy. Family came to stay with us at various times but never all at the same time so it worked out well for us. We knew exactly who was going and when. 


3. What needs do you have?
[post_ads_2]
I like a full kitchen along with a washer and dryer so that is something that I look for in every rental. I also like to have air conditioning especially if I am renting a place in the summer and in places like Europe, not every vacation home comes with air conditioning. 

Each place we rent also needs to have Wifi so I can do some work while we are traveling. This gives me the ability to travel longer.

Knowing exactly what you need makes finding a vacation home much easier. 


4. Budget
[post_ads_2]
How much can you afford to spend per night? Although prices vary by country, you can usually find something in every budget and price range. It is best to book early though. 


5. Where do you want to go?
[post_ads_2]
This is also something to consider. Going to a place like Rome is huge and could be harder to navigate so sometimes staying a little outside a city is right for your trip.

Often times you will find larger homes for lower prices plus other benefits. For instance, one home we rented in France a little outside a major city offered a car that was included in the price. 


6. What part of the city or area do you want to stay in?
[post_ads_2]
This is key because for my family, we always want to be in a family friendly area of the city plus something close to public transportation is also a requirement. I like to find parks near where we are staying, grocery stores and other fun activities. 

As long as we can navigate public transportation easily, there are many areas of any city that work for us.

Renting a vacation home can be fun and exciting as long as you do your homework. Book as early as you can and never be afraid to ask questions of home owners. I always have lots of questions and I confirm everything before we begin our travels.
