Booking a Villa for your Holiday


Posted by admin | Posted in Holidays | Posted on 24-05-2018

A villa might sound like quite the luxurious accommodation choice. And it is, compared to many other choices, such as hotels with shared bathrooms or hostels with shared bedrooms. You might be surprised to know though, villa holidays can be more affordable than you think.

Of course, it will all depend on the holiday itself and the options you select for it. If you choose a more luxurious villa, it will inevitably be more expensive. By booking in advance and considering booking a package, you can often get some good deals and much lower prices.

Villas tend to be bigger, so it’s the perfect opportunity to share with friends and family. Invite some people along and enjoy your trip together, sunbathing and relaxing by the swimming pool. Many villas will come with BBQs and good outdoor areas – you will barely need to leave to go out anywhere else during your holiday!

Travelling abroad is all the more fun if you don’t have to drag lots of luggage around with you. If you can, it’s much better to pack light for your trip. This doesn’t always come naturally to people though, and you might need to put some thought into the items that are essential and those that you can do without. Here are some top tips:

  • Do washing while you are away. This means you can take fewer clothes with you.
  • Take smaller bottles. Decant your liquids into small bottles that will be lighter and won’t take up as much room.
  • Wear your heaviest shoes on the plane. If you take shoes like trainers or walking boots, wear them to save space.
  • Roll your clothes. This stops them creasing but takes up less space in your suitcase.
  • Be ruthless. A lot of what you might like to take really isn’t essential. Don’t take it – you will be fine without it.
