Thomas Cook sun bed battle ends - Fri 02nd February 2018

 Thomas Cook has reported that the sunbed towel battle could well be at an end in hotels, providing you reserve a sunbed for 25 Euros each.

We all know that renting a villa, as opposed to a hotel,  avoids the extra costs of a so-called all-inclusive holiday provides, but more importantly it’s having your own private space a villa offers  etal that go to make a great holiday.

Clearly I am preaching to the converted, as you will have already either considered or have taken a villa holiday in preference to a hotel anyway.  However, when travelling further afield and on long haul,  then perhaps there is little option but to take a hotel .

I was once in Cuba and travelling around the island, whereby a group of 4 of us found it simpler to book hotels for the short stays involved. However, on the final  week of our stay we pre-booked a villa through an agent who had arranged our hotel itinerary, and whilst not expecting to much in the way of comfort found none at all. In fact, it was so bad, more like a bunker on a concrete pad with an interior that did not match any picture given, we complained and moved to a hotel. The lesson is here, as we tell all our clients, is to choose a villa giving you as much detail as possible, not just 2-3 pictures and some exotic blurb the agent has written up.
