With the explosion of websites like booking.com and Expedia, booking a cottage or home for your vacation rentals Dallas TX is all the rage these days. People love renting a place like a cabin or an apartment over a regular hotel because there are a lot of advantages. You can often get a pretty good deal on a place to stay that’s usually closer to sites and attractions you want to see than at any hotel. You also often get a full home, apartment, cottage or flat which includes a full kitchen (another important factor if you’re budget traveling) and sometimes even a washer/dryer. The other great thing about these kinds of rentals are that you can often get a local’s insight into great things to do in the area, the best options for public transportation, and area events and dining. These places also tend to include free parking. While there are a lot of advantages and most people have a wonderful experience, here are a few tips to keep in mind to make sure everything goes smoothly.
- First, make sure you are booking through a reputable outfit. You want a place with good reviews and a lot of properties to choose from.
- Book early, and be a little flexible with your dates. Finding a rental cabin or home can be a little tough at the last minute. Plan ahead and book ahead. When you book earlier, you actually tend to not have to be as flexible with your dates.
- Book at a place that let’s you book and pay online, that way there is no funny business with credit card security or payment.
- I know we are used to just breezing on by any Terms & Conditions and clicking right through. This is when you don’t do that. Read carefully the whole contract or any information about renting the property that includes rules, check out times, cancellation policies, etc.
- The most important tip is to communicate with the person you’re renting from, whether it’s the actual homeowner or a management company. They are renting their place to you and more than happy to answer any questions. Are they pet friendly? When is checkout? Is late checkout available? What’s the parking situation? Etc. Also make sure to get a good contact number or information just in case an issue pops up during your stay.
