Tips for Renting a Holiday Villa in Spain

Mar 20, 2008
Today, Spain is still one of the most favoured holiday destinations for people who live in the UK. However, rather than staying in hotels more and more people are choosing to rent holiday villas in Spain instead. Not only can it work out much less expensive but also you have more freedom to do as you please during your stay in this warm and exciting country.

Yet when it comes to finding the right villa for your holiday, you have a choice of either arranging it through an agent or by finding one for yourself. There are many advantages and disadvantages to be had from booking through an agent rather than booking it yourself and we look at what some of these are below.

1. One advantage to be had from booking a villa through an agent you will find that you have a much wider selection of villas and locations to choose from. All you have to do is explain to the agent what kind of villa it is you want to rent and they will then do the rest.

2. Another advantage to be had from using an agent is that some can actually arrange your flights and car hire also. This then makes the whole process of arranging your next holiday not only much simpler but takes all the effort and pressure off of you as well.

3. Next any reputable agent will have an office or a representative close to where the property is and so can arrange to meet you at the property upon your arrival. This then means that they can show you exactly what is in the villa and exactly how everything works.

4. A big disadvantage to booking through an agent rather than arranging it yourself is the additional fee you have to pay for them arranging it. Unfortunately, there are some unscrupulous agents around who will charge as much as 25% (or even more) of the rental price as their fee, but who will not give you a great service or provide you with assistance if you should need it.

5. Also there are some agents who advertise properties for rent in Spain and who have never actually visited the properties they have available. This means that they will not be able to provide you with important information regarding where you are staying and what local amenities and facilities are available to you.

Therefore if you are considering using an agent for booking any kinds of holiday villas in Spain you need to do your homework first. Spend sometime looking at a number of different agents and see just what services they offer to those who choose to use their services. Aim for those that provide complete back up at all times to their clients.
