Prague vacation rentals and Prague holiday rentals

Vacation rental is a term in the US travel industry meaning renting out a furnished apartment or house on a temporary basis to tourists as an alternative to a hotel. Other parts of the world refer to holiday homes, holiday apartments or holiday rentals. Vacation rentals have long been a popular travel option in Europe (especially in the UK) as well as in Canada and are becoming increasingly popular across the world. They are often referred to as self-catering rentals or villa rentals. In some cities, like Barcelona, local authorities determined that vacation rentals were becoming a threat to the hotel industry and passed some legislation placing regulations and limits on the industry, while in others, such as England, Ireland, France and Spain, the government promotes and certifies holiday rentals, even offering its own program of holiday/vacation rentals. In Czech Republic, we haven?t reached such progress in apartment staying like in mentioned countries. Nevertheless we are facing increasing popularity in vacation/holiday rentals in Prague.

A vacation rental is a fully furnished property, such as a holiday apartment, cottage, condominium, townhome or single-family-style home, often referred to as villa rentals in Europe. In Prague you can rent mostly the apartments. The client/traveler arranges to rent the vacation rental property for a designated period of time, many rent on nightly basis similar to hotel rooms, although the more prevalent vacation rental industry practice is typically weekly rentals. A true vacation rental is not for sale to the guest; rather, the owner of the vacation rental merely allows the guest to rent the property for a predetermined length of time.

Pros and cons of vacation or holiday rentals in Prague

Vacation or Holiday and apartment rentals are generally appealing for many reasons, some of the foremost being cost savings, more space, cook for yourself and no tips or service charges that are associated with hotel rooms. Apartment and vacation or holiday rentals in Prague have kitchens for cooking, living rooms for gathering together and offer the appeal of living in a real neighborhood. For a guest, booking a vacation or holiday rental may mean stepping out of that comfort zone in order to garner some of the advantages they offer. Perceived cons of vacation rentals can include having to communicate directly with the property owner, being unfamiliar with the property, lack of on-site staff, and concerns about quality or cleanliness?however, these are most often mitigated by dealing with apartment or vacation rental agencies in Prague (Prague City Apartments) that manage vacation properties for owners and they offer many of the same services hotels offer to their guests, e.g., front desk check-in, 24-hour maintenance, in-house housekeeping, concierge service.

The benefits generally outweigh the potential negatives, with many vacation rentals offering more space (multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, separate living areas), more amenities (fully equipped kitchens, fireplaces, private hot tubs), convenient locations (like centre of Prague).
