FAQ's about vacation rentals


What kind of vacation homes will I find to rent?

In Rent and Visit we try to diversify our offer. We have vacation homes classified as flats, Villas, Houses, Cottages, Studios, Farms and Chalets. The classification of the property is made by the owner, within the criteria set by Rent and Visit. 

Which location may I choose as a destination?

In Rent and Visit you may choose the destination that suits you more to spend your holidays.
When accessing Rent and Visit’s page, you may choose the destination regarding the theme you want – City, Countryside, Beach, Sky or Golf. If you prefer a more romantic environment, desire to explore the gastronomy of the country, want to know more of its history or simply wish to enjoy the best leisure and fun locations, Rent and Visit has what you are looking for. You may choose any location in the world that you wish to visit during vacation time and rent one of the properties available in that particular destination.

May I rent a vacation home for a long period of time?

Rent and Visit acts as an intermediary in the renting of properties for short periods of time, during vacations or leisure moments. When you choose the vacation home you like more, you should contact the owner and indicate the stay period you want. Rent and Visit is not responsible for the conditions imposed by the owner, but we work towards the objective of providing the best hosting service.

How do I know that the property I want is available when I want it?

In the main page of Rent and Visit’s portal you can select the vacation properties you want to see using the toolbar available, choosing the destination, theme or dates in which you want to travel. If you want the vacation home to have certain characteristics, you can search for it using the search engine for Advanced Searches in the main page of Rent and Visit.
After selecting the wanted property, you will access its availability calendar, where you can see if it is already reserved or not. You will always be able to contact the vacation rental owner for more informations through the online questionnaire or even by phone.

How can I search based on the price of the vacation rentals?

When you access Rent and Visit´s main page, click on “Advanced Search” and then you may do your research based on the criteria “price”. You may even choose first the theme or destination of your vacations and the list of properties you will see will be sorted by the category “price”.

Rent and Visit recommends that you make as much information requests as possible to the vacation rentals owners, in case that the property you want isn’t available.
If you do not receive feedback from the owner in 24H to 48H, we advise you to contact him by phone, in case the number is given in the ad of the property.  

How can I contact the homeowner?

In the properties’ ad you may send the online questionnaire with your data and questions. In this inquiry it is important that you place all the questions you have clearly and in an objective manner so that everything can be fully explained. The homeowner will receive a notification regarding your questionnaire and should be able to answer it within 48H maximum. If you do not get any response after this period of time, we suggest that you contact the owner by phone, which should be given in his own data.
