You’ve made the decision that this time you are going to ditch the boring hotels and get a nice, cosy, private short let accommodation for your stay away from home. Great job! However, if you haven’t done before or didn’t have the best experience last time, you should really know what to consider when booking a short let. We are going to outline some of the essentials in this article.
No doubt, the location would one of the first things you will consider when booking a short let. If you are on a business trip, it is important the place to be located close to your meeting point or place of work.
The Transport Links
If the short let accommodation isn’t that close to where you would be spending most of your time during the day, then at least, it must have good transport links, whether through public transport or by driving. Transport is also important if you are on holiday and you want to make the most of the area you are staying in, exploring different sites and attractions.
Make sure you check what’s around your short let. Are there any shops and amenities nearby? Is it in a remote green area? Can you get some quiet and peaceful time? Are there any neighbours? Those are all questions you need to ask yourself or the holiday let owner before you make your booking.
Your comfort and security are very important during your stay away from home. Find out what is available in the property. You should be looking for things like air conditioning and heating, telephone line, wifi, TV, fridge and cooking facilities. Some short lets offer a lot more extras, which you can enjoy.
Apart from the facilities that you can use in the short let accommodation, you need to know what services will be made available to you, for example, housekeeping, laundry and ironing. You can ask your host for the arrangements that have been put in place in regards to this and you can also request to have a housekeeper coming in at a time and frequency that suits you.
The Terms and Conditions
It is essential that you check the terms and conditions for renting the holiday let before you make a booking. Read carefully and don’t just skip the details. They are important because usually, people oversee the little things that they deem insignificant but end up paying a lot more than the initial booking in penalty fees and charges.
