For many, the quintessential idea of a holiday is a hotel stay. But in recent years, particularly helped with the advent of booking platforms such as Airbnb, holiday rentals are becoming more popular than ever. Though for now, holidays for many are on pause, it will be interesting to see how holidaymakers choose to spend their time and money when they do get the chance to travel again. In fact, in a recent article, Forbes magazine suggested that private holiday rentals could be the future, owing to a number of benefits. Interested to find out more? Read on…

Safe Social Distancing

Of course, the number one benefit to booking a private holiday rental, is privacy. Particularly when reserving a property such as a villa, you can ensure that you will have complete seclusion from other holidaymakers that you may not have in a hotel, which have staff and other guests milling about. Staying in a holiday rental, you can prepare your own food, removing the risk of contamination from others, and ensure that you will not be disturbed for the duration of your stay.

Perfect for Remote Working

Another huge benefit to private holiday rentals is that they are often perfect for remote working. Many larger properties are equipped with offices, and all our properties have free high-speed wi-fi to ensure you have a stable connection. We may be biased but we have to say it does help that you can take your lunch break by the pool. After all, if you have to work from home, why not do it in the sunshine!

Thorough Hygiene Standards

By law, holiday rental properties and managers in Andalucía must uphold strict cleaning standards in between guests and are subject to regular government checks. These cleans are incredibly stringent and include criteria such as disinfecting walls and ceilings in between stays! At Teamstar, our dedicated cleaning team are fully trained to carry out and meet these exceptionally high standards.

Low Cost

For those confident enough to book now, there are plenty of fantastic deals on accommodation and flights to be had. More often than not, airlines are offering no change fee should the worst happen and you need to change your holiday. Likewise, at Teamstar we are offering similar options if you book direct. In fact, you can cancel your holiday up to two weeks before arrival should you be affected by COVID, or change your holiday free of charge.*
