Searching for the perfect vacation is not easy but fortunately Internet gives us the possibility to do it sitting comfortably on the couch in the living room. Although it looks that Internet makes it easy it is not. There are thousands of web sites out there and it may be confusing for lot of your where to start. Here are four tips how to find the perfect vacation rental and get the most of your vacation.
1. Advanced search functionality – Look for web sites that provide easy navigation and quick access to advance search functionality. Normally you have some requirements to the place you want to spend your vacation and you don’t want to waste time looking at places that don’t fit your requirements. There are lots of web sites that just list the properties and you need to click on every property to find the right one. Although it is possible to find good rentals on these sites it will take a lot of time to check every vacation rental. There is a high probability that the same rentals are listed on a web site with better search functionalities. Look for web sites that allow you to customize your search and allow you to search for the amenities you want. Good example is TravelWeaver.net; it allows you to select among huge set of amenities in the house or the surrounding area.
2. Pictures – Have you ever looked at pictures with such a bad quality that you wonder whether this is a villa or stall? Sure, everybody is. Lots of web sites use cheap hosting that does not allow them to store big files and therefore they reduce the quality of the pictures the owner’s upload and thus the size of the pictures. Nice views are essential for getting good impression from the rental you will pay for.
3. Price information – Although the posting of price information is left to the owners there are lot of web sites that don’t even provide the possibility to enter such information and you need to look for it in the property description if it at all exists. I would not recommend renting any vacation home without seeing the price first. If the owner doesn’t post the price on the web site it is useless to discuss the rental with him – for sure he or she is hiding something or the property is not worth the money.
4. Security – It is always good to be secure. Renting directly from the owners can get you into troubles sometimes. The only way to be sure that you are renting the right property is to look for recommendations from other people who have already been there. Reading the reviews will help you understand even more about the rental.
Following these guidelines you will be able to find the right vacation home and have the perfect vacation.
