Guide to Holiday Apartments in the Balearics

Apr 27, 2008
When it comes to holiday apartments in the Balearics you have a number of different options to select from as well as places. You can either choose to stay in a small one that is close to spectacular beaches or in a much large one that is located in the very heart of all the activities that the city of San Antonio has to offer.

When you are actually trying to find and then book an apartment on one of the various Balearic Islands the best place to start looking is online. However, before you make that all important booking it is a good idea to actually spend some time and looking what is available.

Along with booking accommodation directly with the owners of the property, there are plenty of companies that are able to provide you with such facilities as well. By booking through these companies, you are offered a little more security and assistance in order to find the perfect rental property for you. When you do decide to book accommodation through such companies there are certain things that need to be taken into consideration, below we look at what some of these are.

Firstly, when you are booking accommodation through a holiday rental company you need to be aware that you will have to pay a deposit when you book to ensure that the accommodation is reserved for you. On average when making such a booking you will be expected to pay around 30% of the total cost of the accommodation that you are renting. However, you should also know that if you have to cancel at any time after making the booking some companies will only refund a small part of the deposit paid, whilst others may not return any of the deposit to you at all.

If you want to ensure that you do get your deposit monies returned if you have to cancel your reservation for reasons that are out of your control then taking out some kind of cancellation protection insurance is a good idea. So when making a booking see which companies offer this and which do not and go with those that do. Normally, when you take out this kind of protection you will be expected to pay a fee of around 5% of the total cost of the rental price.

Although most companies will advertise their rental rates using one particular form of currency, many are more than willing for clients to pay using the currency where they live. But be wary when doing this as the currency exchange rate at the time of booking can seriously effect just how much or little you pay for the accommodation you are booking.

Most people when using the internet to book accommodation for their vacation will pay for it by credit card and this not only saves them time but offers them security as well. But be warned when booking your accommodation and the rate of exchange is high you may find yourself paying considerably more for your accommodation that you would have expected. Therefore, check out the rates of exchange prior to making the booking and see if there are any other ways you can pay and which will prevent you paying over the odds for your accommodation.

As well as the above mentioned items there are other factors which need to be taken into consideration and which will affect how much you pay for holiday apartments in the Balearics. Certainly, if you intend to be visiting Ibiza at the height of the summer season then you will have to pay considerably more than, if you were to visit it during the winter or spring months.
