few tour operators try to insist that you take out their insurance
as a condition of booking flight-only deals. That will probably
add at least $50 to each ticket, and maybe as much as $80.
Offer instead to provide proof that you have taken out your
own insurance - you can then shop around for the best deal.
Often that will be an annual travel policy. It's possible,
for instance, to get a year's multi-trip insurance policy
for a family for as little as $140.
important thing is to be sure you're covered from the
moment you book tickets and accommodation. If you have to
cancel because of illness, bereavement or redundancy, it's
no good trying to take out insurance at that point!
If you hire
a car at your destination each driver will need to
produce a full driving licence and passport (if you're
pre-booking, remember to make it clear if you want more than
one driver). If you're taking your own car, you will need
a full set of car and insurance documents.
Passports and Vaccinations
forget your passport! And make sure you check it well before
your departure date - it's all too easy to overlook a passport
that's expired, or to forget that children need their own
passports at 16. Very few of the countries featured in these
pages require visa applications in advance - if they do, the
property owner should be able to tell you about it. A few
countries outside Europe may refuse to let you in if your
passport is close to its expiry date - again, the villa owner
should be able to let you know. It's the same with vaccinations
and health requirements, which apply mainly to tropical or
third - world countries: if in doubt, check with your doctor.

details before renting
We recommend that potential renters, or their agents, confirm
all the terms of the proposed rental contract in writing in
advance of the rental, and wherever possible, also view the
property in advance. If possible, pay by credit card or paypal, as you will have protection by paying using these methods.
If you wire transfer money, make sure that the name and country that you are wiring the money to, bears some relationship to the person that owns the property.
You can also ask for utility bills showing the address of the property and ask for testimonials. Most genuine property owners are happy to provide this. Also make sure that any insurance or breakage deposit is clearly listed and not tagged onto the bill at the last minute.
Above all, if you are at all suspicious - walk away and report the property to us.
We would be very interested to know how you enjoyed your stay
at any of the properties on our pages. Any positive (or negative)
feed back would be greatly appreciated.
