Holiday letting is the act of renting a property to a person (or people) to stay in during their holiday. Holiday lettings can be used for both domestic and international stays, but have become particularly popular in European countries. These typically come fully furnished with self-catering areas, and allow those renting to experience life a little more like a local. They are suitable for short stays and sometimes longer ones too, and are often recognised for the flexibility and space they provide, in comparison to other accommodation options. As a popular alternative to a hotel, and much more exclusive than a hostel, you’re likely to find that there are numerous holiday lettings in and around your next holiday destination.
How do holiday lettings work?
Companies that offer holiday lettings often showcase properties online like Stay YNA Privately renting through a holiday letting company is a common practice, and can ensure you get the best experience when choosing your accommodation.
Holiday lettings generally work by an individual discovering a letting in the area of their next holiday. This may be done by browsing the website of a holiday lettings agency, to see what they have to offer. After determining whether the property is available for their desired dates (usually the whole duration of their holiday), suitable for their needs (and others who may be staying with them), and meets their preferences and budget, they will then decide whether to book. Depending on the company, this can either be done by phone or online.
The availability of a holiday letting will depend on when you want to stay and how long you want to stay for. The cost of holiday lettings will depend on the location of the property and its specifications.
Why use holiday lettings?
The number of people using holiday lettings has grown over the past few years. Some people choose to use them as they find it more cost-effective and better value for money. Others prefer the privacy and personal space that these lettings have. The added benefit of having a self-catering area means that you can eat and explore the local restaurants and cafes to your heart’s content. Alternatively, you can make the meal that you’ve been craving all day when you back in from a long day of local adventuring.
What does a holiday lettings company do?
Every holiday lettings company will work differently, but at Stay YNA we work to support you through every step of the holiday lettings process. If you haven’t used them before, they will be especially useful to you. Furthermore, if you’re looking into holiday lettings abroad, the company will be able to communicate better where there might be a language barrier that hinders communication.
Firstly, a holiday lettings company should be able to show you options for the type of letting you’d like to stay in. If you know where you’ll be spending your holiday, the company should be able to see if they can provide any accommodation to suit you in that area. They can tell you about other people who have stayed there, their thoughts on it, and even find you great deals on other lettings if you’re struggling to decide.
You should feel confident that your chosen company will facilitate things for you. A holiday lettings company should be able to sort out any problems you might come across, whether leading up to your stay or during it. They will be able to work between you and the individual offering the holiday letting, to get you the best result. Additionally, if you have a review or a complaint to make after staying in your holiday letting, the company should be able to deal with this. Of course, problems and complaints aren’t ideal, but a good company will know how to deal with them.
