A short-term rental is an ideal solution for any traveller who will be visiting a new city or country for an extended period of time, be it for business, pleasure, family, medical necessity, or any other reason. Short-term rentals are great because they provide the features and luxuries of a hotel without the expense, and the comforts of home without the hassles of moving or locking into long-term leases.
And when it comes to different seasons, there are a number of unique reasons to stay in a short-term rental this winter.
1. Not Having to Worry About Moving in Winter
Nobody likes moving, but doing it in winter is especially unpleasant, and the snow, ice, cold, and bad weather can make the process more difficult and even dangerous. A short-term rental eliminates all the aggravation that comes with an unfurnished long-term rental, because the unit comes fully furnished and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay.
2. Save Money and Stay Warm by Eating In
Most visitors to a new city who stay in a hotel often have to eat every meal out, and not only does this add up quickly, but it also means having to venture out into the cold and snow at every mealtime. In a short-term accommodation, you’ll have access to your very own kitchen, meaning you can save money on food, won’t have to bundle up for breakfast, and you can eat in the comfort of your own home away from home.
3. Not Being Locked into a Lengthy Lease
One of the hardest parts about travelling to new places for extended stays is the dilemma about where to stay. Typical options include a hotel, finding a long-term rental accommodation, or buying a place, which is an enormous commitment. A less traditional option (but ideal solution) is a short-term rental, which will have more flexible lease agreements for short-term travel.
4. Luxury Amenities and Feeling Like You’re Home
Short-term rental accommodations are like hotels in that you’ll have access to a number of features and amenities, including:
- Swimming pool
- Gym or fitness centre
- Lounge areas
- Theater rooms
- Luxury linens and bedding
Unlike a hotel, however, a short-term rental feels much more like home, meaning you can settle in more comfortably.
5. More Room Than a Traditional Hotel
It’s hard enough finding room to spread out in a hotel room when the weather is nice, let alone when you have all your extra winter gear with you. Short-term rentals tend to provide you with a lot more space that a hotel room, and this will make your stay much less cramped, especially during winter trips.
6. Cost Savings
Short-term rentals are more affordable than long-term hotel stays, long-term rentals, and buying a place to accommodate your trip. These types of rentals are designed specifically for budget-conscious travellers who don’t want to spend a fortune on a hotel room, and who don’t want the expense or commitment of a long-term rental (plus all the utility fees) or purchase.
There are a good many reasons to stay in a furnished apartment rental this winter, and convenience, comfort, and luxury are among the most important. Not only will a short-term rental save you money, but you’ll also be able to cook for yourself, take care of your own laundry, and feel at home in a new place as you explore the city.
