As the global travel industry continues to expand, more and more people are looking to go on business trips/vacation while spending the least amount of money possible. One of the newest trends in travel destinations is to rent a corporate housing property, rather than staying in a traditional hotel. Some vacationers/business travelers prefer the home-like feel of a corporate housing setup to the temporary, transient feel of a hotel. For those looking to travel to a new destination whether for business or pleasure, a wide assortment of corporate housing rental properties are available to fit your personal preferences and budget. Corporate Housing Properties exist in virtually every setting in the world. From homes to condos, apartment rentals, cottages, and villas, you’ll find that there are many options to choose from. So how do you go about choosing the perfect corporate housing rental for you?
The Photos. The single most important factor is whether or not you can “see” actual recent photos of the interior and exterior of the corporate housing rental. It’s one thing to read a great description – and some of them are quite ‘complimentary’ (sometimes overly so) – but you need to see what you are getting. What do the pictures show? Does the listing advertise a view? Hot tub? Gourmet kitchen? Can you actually see these amenities? How is the quality of the pictures? Are they blurry? Do they look like they were taken with a camera purchased fifty years ago? Photos are one of the biggest and best indicators of whether or not this property is worth checking out.
Discover the Location. Location: Most rentals are located near the beaches and nearby tourist attractions or sites of interest. There are also the rentals that are located in major cities, close to schools, or businesses. Select the one which best suits your taste. Know if it is well connected to the city, so that you can save money and time on transportation. If possible, see the pictures of the location on their website. Make sure that it is less noisy and not over crowded.
Be well informed. Before finalizing your corporate housing rental agreement, gather all relevant details and methods of communication whether it’s by way of email of by other communication methods to reach the care takers if the need arises. Be informed about the facilities and amenities, sleeping arrangements, kitchen gear and other relevant details prior to your arrival.
Examine and compare all of your options. You have a huge number of corporate housing rentals to choose from. For that reason, do not choose the first one that you come across. Doing so may later result in disappointment. Instead, you should visit online corporate websites and start comparing all of your options. Remember corporate housing companies specialize in private rentals, like homes, cottages, villas, apartment rentals, and condos. So you really don’t have to settle for anything less then a rental that you think is perfect for you and your family.
In short, since you do have a number of different options, in terms of private corporate housing rentals, take the time to find the rental that is perfect for you. By doing so, you are less likely to be disappointment and you won’t be left second guessing your decision days before your trip.
