After being locked up at home for months, there is a desire to enjoy free time and natural landscapes. However, it is important to plan your holidays well and not make mistakes so that we don’t get upset later.
And it is that even, simply due to small oversights committed during the reservation process, the dream of a perfect vacation can end in a nightmare. Most of the time, these mistakes are often easily avoided. The Cornwall house Accommodation has compiled in a list of the ten most common mistakes that you should avoid so that the reservation of your holidays this 2021 goes smoothly.

1. Always compare prices
Don’t settle for the first offer you see. Booking a vacation can be very exciting and it’s easy to get carried away by the first price you find. Comparing the prices of different websites and providers will make you find bargains that you might have missed on the first push. Travel blogs and meta search engines are especially useful when looking for the best price.
2. Recommendations are the key
Don’t just look at the star rating of an accommodation. Reading past visitor reviews to find the right fit is worth spending time on. Normally, if a property has a certain reputation (good or bad) after a few thousand reviews, it is probably because something has been done to earn it.
3. Always check your data
Make sure you don’t make any mistakes when writing your name, your email address, your home address, etc. Making changes afterward can be very expensive, as well as time-consuming. Make sure to verify that you have selected your departure and arrival flights in the correct order and on the corresponding dates.
4. Check all your inboxes
If you can’t see a reservation confirmation in your inbox, always look in your spam folder. Make sure your mailbox is not completely full, as this can also prevent you from receiving new emails if there are any changes to the reservation.
5. Browse web pages with an eye
Always check that you have not checked any box that should not be checked, something that is very important when making reservations from a mobile phone. Drop-down menus and information boxes can easily be activated by incorrect swiping. Do not get carried away by the rush and take all the care you can.
6. Book within your means
Make sure to always check the different payment options for the different vacation packages. Be careful, for example, not to exceed your credit card limit if you pay in advance. Also, keep in mind that, if you pay in installments, payments will be made on the date required by the company.
7. Plan all your transfers
If transfers are not included in your booking package, make sure you know the best way to get to the house accommodation and all local transportation options before you go. It’s never fun getting stuck in an airport or paying for a taxi to get to the house accommodation because you haven’t checked this information first. Tip: Read carefully the opinions of other travelers about the accommodation as they usually recommend ways to get there.
8. Beware of extra fees
Check the house accommodation or reservation website for the ‘Resort Fees’ before making the final payment. You should also bear in mind that, in some destinations, you will be charged a municipal or tourist tax when you arrive at the house accommodation. Unfortunately, there is no way around this, it is simply the law.
9. Be aware of airline baggage policies
If luggage is not included in your vacation reservation, always check the airline’s luggage policy. Paying extra for exceeding the weight limit is one of the most common problems. And remember to always check the official information, as baggage policies change often.
10. Check entry restrictions
We began to know several of the countries that will open their borders to international travelers. It is essential to consult official sources and take the measures that are imposed in these countries. A post-lockdown vacation is possible if common sense and the rules of the destination are followed.
