What to Ask When Renting a Vacation Home Rental

Renting a Vacation Home can be intimidating if this is your first time. Here are some suggestions on what to ask before making your reservations and what to expect once you arrive.

1. Before you reserve your vacation rental, make a list of things you need for accommodations. Next list things you want to do on your vacation. Ask the homeowner lots of questions before you make a commitment to avoid surprises upon your arrival.

2. Location: Many homeowners say they are close to the beach. What does that really mean? Can you walk out of their unit, take a few steps and be at the beach? Or is a mile down the road? Can you see the water from their unit? Or do you have to stretch your neck to get a glimpse of it. This may be important to you if you have children and want to be close to the house in case you need something.

3. What is Provided: Are linens included? What about toiletries? Is the kitchen fully equipped? Will you need to bring salt and pepper, tea bags, sugar? What about paper goods such as napkins, paper cups. Getting details will help you save money if you decide to shop before you get to your destination.

4. Things to Do: If you have children, proved the ages to the owner. Ask what type of activities are in the area and how close are they to these activities. If you are traveling without children and would like some nightlife, you should ask this question as well. I was quite surprised when hubby and I stayed in a small town where the carpets were rolled up each night at 9pm. It was not exactly what we had planned for our vacation.

5.Cleaning Deposit: What is required of you in order to get a full refund? Understand exactly what you need to do before you leave. The word “clean” can mean different things to different people.

6. Cancellation Policy: Will you get a full refund? How long before the arrival date can you get a refund? Can you provide a replacement party and get a full refund? For more information please visit http://www.DreamAwayVacationRentals.com

Why Visit London With The Family?

As the capital of England, London has amazing sights and sounds to amaze all the family. The tower of London, Buckingham Palace, London Dungeons, Madame Tussauds, immersive shopping, and the London Eye are just some of the attractions for a London hotel city break.

Sounds impressive?  Well, I’ve been looking into this as something to do with my family and it’s not as expensive as you might think.  Especially if you go to London Pass to get your tickets into these places. (http://www.londonpass.com/) (and no, I don’t have any affiliation with London Pass, it’s just a service I’m considering on using as the prices seem fair and can get me into the places I want to get to.)

One thing I would recommend though, and that’s work out the length of time your going to be in London, against the cost of going to the places individually, or with a day pass, sometimes, if your only going to be a few hours each day in London doing the sightseeing bit, then it may be a better thing to do to just “pay as you go”

The extensive business district and many exhibition centres also play host to major events, the o2 arena enjoys huge rock bands concerts and with major airports such as Gatwick and Heathrow that have direct links in London City, there has never been a better to book your stay in London.

I’ve been looking on-line to get a nice hotel, but without having to spend a fortune to stay their and came across Roomguide, who have listed on their website “Our extensive range of hotels, bed and breakfasts, apartments and hostels in London will make any stay in this city a fantastic experience. Our roomguide.co.uk best rate guarantee ensures that your stay in London will be at the cheapest rate bookable anywhere on the Internet. We offer huge discounts, with up to 75% off London hotel breaks, will enable you to spend money on top attractions instead of your accommodation!”

1.             You can get holidays cheaper at the last minute.

Economic times are difficult these days. There can’t be many of us who have not suffered the financial pinch. Budgets have to be reduced, belts tightened, things given up. Yet, we all value our holidays, and who can blame us? It’s a chance to get away from it all, to see a brighter side of life, and to re-charge our batteries.
The trouble is that most pre-booked holidays can get a little expensive, and we’d all rather keep the costs down if we can. In addition, with the demise of some airlines in the past year, it would be tragic to see your pre-booked holiday vanish before your eyes. Waiting for a last minute holiday can reduce the chances of failure, and keep your costs down.
When you are looking for last minute holiday deal, it is best to be open-minded about your destination. If you have your heart set on a particular location, then waiting for a last minute holiday is probably going to leave you disappointed. However, if you have aims of, say: sun, sea, nightlife, then a last minute deal will almost certainly satisfy those aims. Or if it’s skiing, mountains, within three hours, then, equally, there’s probably something available for you.
Some bargain deals are available in travel agent shop windows, but shop around to get the best deals. The Internet also has plenty to offer. You might even get an exciting destination that you never thought you’d visit!
So, tell your family to dust off the sun hat, swimming costume and flip-flops; you’re off on holiday and there’s no time to lose!
