For many, booking accommodation is a stressful task. Whether you are looking for your family or a group of friends, it is a great responsibility to find the ideal holiday oasis.

We bring you five simple tips to help you prepare well and set out on a quest to make this process easier for you. It will make it easier for you to find the perfect vacation spot.

Before we start the preparatory steps, feel free to imagine your vacation.

Time without worries, work, and obligations. Relax on the beach, swimming, excursions, romantic dinners. Enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the sea or watch the sunset with a glass of wine in hand. Sounds good?

Let’s get to work to make your vacation look like this:

1. Determine dates and possible alternatives

As you probably know, prices vary depending on the dates and period of the season and significantly affect the price. It is crucial to know the period you can and want to travel; when does your annual start? How many days do you plan to stay? If it is a fixed period, be sure to state it in your query, and if you are able, it is good to specify alternative dates while booking accommodation. For example, leaving the day before or moving the departure date by a day or two.

2. Set a maximum budget

You must have calculated the “holiday” item in your budget. We suggest that you define the exact maximum amount that you can and want to set aside for accommodation. Determine the budget separately you will spend on transportation, excursions, outings, and shopping. It is vital to know in advance what you have and the highest price of the accommodation that is acceptable to you.

3. Select the type of accommodation

As with the season, prices vary depending on the type of accommodation, its equipment, distance from the sea, facilities included and the like. We are all different in what represents our ideal vacation, and some like to be in a hotel. For some, the beach’s proximity is essential, while the primary condition is intimacy. Of course, depending on your budget and offer, you can decide what suits you best.

4. List everything that is important to you

As with the type of accommodation, various additional services and options are offered, and it is up to you to decide what is important to you. Remember your past vacations, what was good for you, what you could not do without, and what you want to have on hand on vacation. For some it is a parking space, some prefer a large balcony, some are looking for a spacious bathroom, for some the possibility of breakfast is essential. We suggest that you list your priorities in order of importance before booking accommodation and choose accordingly. Also, when sending an inquiry or filtering offers on one of the platforms, be sure to list the most important ones to you.

5. Don’t forget the local agencies as well

For most people, when choosing accommodation, the first thought is to use some of the large global services that offer a variety of opportunities and which are rich in offers. You will not go wrong if you use them, but also consider local travel agencies that provide accommodation in destinations. They are often faster and more flexible, and they know the destination better and can be of great help when choosing and with additional tips.

After going through these steps, you will start getting offers for various facilities.

In the following blog, you will find tips on how to decide between them and choose the best one for you and how to protect yourself from possible scams to make your vacation truly stress-free.
