I am very concious when discussing last minute holiday bookings that misogyny could raise its head. The fact remains however that men and women are different and traits can be grouped by the sexes. What has this got to do with getting money off your next holiday? I hear you ask.
Let’s imagine a scenario where Mrs Smith wants to go to a particular destination, it may be a town or a beach in Italy or Spain. She’s a little concerned that as the days and weeks tick by that the property, a villa, a chalet or a swathe of city apartments could be rented before they get a chance.
It’s true they could. Now let’s reverse the sexes and accept that Mr Smith could be the nervous one and Mrs Smith the one looking to save money. One of a couple is going to be anxious to book a last minute villa holiday offers at VillaSelect for instance, the other will prefer to spend a few thousand or few hundred pound more to simply secure peace of mind.
This is the game we encounter constantly when trying to locate cheaper holidays or to find a reduction in a luxury villa that would otherwise be out of the budgeted range. It would be nice if all holiday properties in Spain and Italy were equal and had stable pricing but that’s never going to be the case when one villa is the size of a shed and another has a private swimming pool, eight bedrooms and a Butler.
Why The Disparity In Now And Last Minute Pricing?
All those Villas in Europe or luxury villas in the Caribbean are owned by someone, they with the management team or the company that owns the property wish to see it booked all year round. They adapt their pricing to fit the market, this can rise each year but demand also goes up and down. Sometimes the owners and villa managers panic.
This is why eventually on some properties that may not be as popular or out of many people’s price range result in last minute villa holiday offers at Villa select. With last minute deals on Greece villas, ski chalets and city apartments in Portugal. It’s not that the standard has dropped and suddenly it’s a cheap villa because it’s worthy of being cheap just that the ratio of high end bookers chose a different property elsewhere in the world this season.
How do we as the holiday going public cope with this sporadic movement in pricing? We have to be more clever than the property managers. It’s in my best interest as owner of this website, Squillions, to see the most expensive villa rentals sold at the correct price, then again the better deals the higher ratio of sales so it’s win win.
You need to understand the market also. Is there a local event that increased visitors and saw prices rise. Is the local economy bad or doing well? Is the Euro Sterling rate to your advantage or theirs and so on. Last minute villa holiday offers at VillaSelect are a two way bonus, they are there for both you and the owner.
Lowering The Cost Of Luxury Villas Before The Last Minute
I may wish to stay in a villa in the Caribbean for the middle of August. It’ a busy time, the children are off school but there is still only so many people ad families who can afford a expensive luxury villa with a stay of seven days for £80,000. If I was in a party of 16 looking to stay somewhere and had £75,000 I’d make them last minute villa deal offer they couldn’t refuse.
You don’t always have to wait for the owner or villa manager to reduce the pricing. Therefore Mrs Smith and Mr Smith be pro active. If you want to rent a villa for a week in the Caribbean, if you want to create your own last minute villa holidays offer at a Villa website, start the negotiation yourself, perhaps with an enquiry and go from there.
It may occur that a property owner always negotiate with a family that seems keen but is choosing between another villa in the area or another cheaper holiday home in another country. If I could turn an enquiry into a booking by reducing a £20,000 villa holiday in Greece by £2000 to secure full payment I think I would be inclined to do so.
Whether you’re off to Antigua or Greece, seeking out a family villa in Italy or a cheaper villa holiday in Croatia there are several ways to cut a deal other than simply refreshing comparison websites, or individual late deals pages on holiday villa websites. That said, I can assure, all year round there are last minute villa holiday offers at VillaSelect that will certainly whet the appetite. There are even vouchers occasionally.
