If you are planning a trip to the city or booking a short HOLIDAY IN SPAIN from the owners, this can save a lot of money. It's easy to book directly from the owners, all you have to do is search the Internet. By not going through a rental agent, you will save on costs and make it even better if you deal directly with the owner. During the review of prices and availability any questions can be directed at someone who not only knows the area, but has a vested interest in your enjoyment of the holiday. Also in dealing direct with the owner, you can expect a better service and even a discount. The landlord can also advise on the area and benefits to everyone in your group. Just a little tip, when you have found your ideal villa or apartment you are interested in, take a look at the calender as an empty calender could mean a better discount as the owner maybe looking for customers, maybe he is desperate to rent and might consider a lower offer.

Remember that home owners are in business, which means they are here to serve you in every way they can, after all they would like you to return next year and even the year after, so do not be afraid to ask anything that will make your holiday only that much better.

Before deciding on your final destination, make a list of what you feel you will need in your apartment. This may include in its list a child's cot or an extra bed, is there a washing machine in the apartment or will you need to use a launderette and a hot summers day what could be better than a barbecue. Remember that you will not receive this type of service during your stay in a hotel room except for extra rates for cleaning your room on a daily basis. Once you have spoken with the home owner ask about having coffee or tea and maybe juice or even milk in the apartment for your arrival.

It is easy to rent directly from an owner and bypassing the agent and his fees. Book online directly with the owner and get a better vacation as it could save money that may be used elsewhere while on your vacation. In these times of economic downturn its generally wise to keep hold of all the spare pennies as much as possible. If you can book your stay directly with the owners at the last minute, you may save a little bit more on your HOLIDAY IN SPAIN.
