Expert advice busts myths about vacation rental homes

WYNDHAM VACATION RENTALS sets the record straight on self-catering holidays. 

‘With so many different types of vacation rentals available, travellers can have trouble navigating their options,’ says Mary Lynn Clark, president of Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America. ‘Feeling mis-informed or overwhelmed can dissuade those travellers from trying something new. To help, we want to confront the myths that tend to surround vacation rentals.’

Myth #1: More space = a higher price tag. Many travellers assume vacation rentals are more expensive than traditional lodging options. Think again … Break down the per night, per person pricing while factoring in the space amenities and you can get great value. Rental homes can be even more cost-effective by allowing travellers to leverage convenient amenities, such as kitchens to save money on meals or washers/dryers to cut down on baggage fees by packing less.

Myth #2: I need to have a large group. Vacation rental homes come in all shapes and sizes, from studio units and condos in resort-style communities to larger, private homes with four or more bedrooms. Solo travellers, couples, and small families often enjoy rental homes for the convenience and can find the right-sized home for their needs.

Myth #3: I have to stay for at least a week. Not true … many vacation rental homes offer flexibility when it comes to length of stay. Travellers can often find rentals for weekend stays, especially during off-peak travel periods.

Myth #4: You have to book far in advance. False … there is no set timeframe in which you must book a rental home before your trip. While booking further in advance can give you a greater selection to choose from, there are often great last-minute deals in many popular destinations for those who can't plan as far ahead.

Myth #5: If I need help during my stay, I'm on my own. Quite the contrary; although, it does depend on how you book your rental home. If you book through a professional manager, there is typically someone available 24/7 to assist you with any problems you might have. If you book directly through a homeowner, you'll need to ask them how available they'll be during your stay.
