If you are already dreading the thought of the imminent onset of those dark and dreary autumn and winter days, try to bring a little sunshine and relaxation into your life by planning your summer holiday 2009 whilst the memories of this years holiday are still fresh in your mind, or better still, how about booking a short break away during the next few months to find some much needed winter sun?
With the children now back at school and the cool chill of shorter autumn days now upon us, your thoughts may already be turning to next summers holiday or perhaps you are looking to get away from the damp and dreary British winter for a few days in sunnier climes.
So once you have drawn up your shortlist of suitable countries where the amount of sunshine and average daily temperature is significantly warmer than Margate or Skegness in January or July, the next most important decision is where to stay. The alternatives to booking a hotel room or two rooms and more if you have a family are numerous. It just takes a little thought and advanced planning?
With the growth of the internet, the advent of cheap and plentiful flights especially throughout Europe, there is so much choice and flexibility when it comes to booking a holiday break whether it be a weekend in Paris to a full two week break with all the family in Spain… With the advent of cheap flights from an increasing number of UK airports to dozens of resorts around Europe, there has never been more choice and flexibility in terms of when and where to go!
Your choice really is without limit! Fancy a holiday villa in Majorca, Menorca or Ibiza, a stunning apartment in Tenerife, Lanzarote or Fuerteventura, a vacation rental in one of the many states in America, even South Africa or Australia. Wherever you want to go, you are sure to find the right type of accommodation to suit your needs!
However despite all of these wonderful choices of destinations, the wrong choice of holiday accommodation can put a real dampener on what should be a time of carefree relaxation under foreign skies, a time to relax and distress from the daily grind in the UK.
For families of more than the typical 2 parents and 2 children, and for those who may consider extended winter breaks for example, the typical hotel offering can be very restrictive not to mention the expense!
More and more people are now aware of the many real benefits in renting a holiday home, apartment or villa directly from the owner.

No more rushing down 6 flights of hotel stairs each morning to make sure you don’t miss breakfast!
