Tips for Traveling with Your Family

May 16, 2014

Happy family going on holidays and traveling by airplaneTraveling with a family is unlike traveling solo. In fact, it’s unlike traveling as a couple. Whether you’re traveling for business and bringing the family or relaxing on vacationing with them, keeping everyone in good spirits takes a little added planning. These days logging frequent flyer miles with your whole family has become a lifestyle and for many families, here are some ways to ensure the journey is as enjoyable as the destination.

Be Kind to Fellow Travelers: Just because you’re traveling with your family, doesn’t mean that everyone else is too. While your family takes priority, being aware of travelers en route to your destination makes the experience pleasant for everyone. Extending a little advanced courtesy to fellow passengers while on your flight or train ride will make them more accommodating should your children burst out into tears or a full-on sibling squabble.

011-A-Brand-New-KitchenFind Family-Friendly Accommodations When you’re traveling with the whole family, budget friendly stays are essential, which makes a hotel stay nearly unaffordable. But choosing extended stay accommodations means that you’ll save big by having the flexibility to purchase groceries and prepare some meals in the rental’s fully-equipped kitchen. 

Walk Everywhere: Sure renting a vehicle may seem like a great idea, but nothing beats touring a new city on foot to soak up the local culture. Although you may not cover as much ground as you would in a car, your family will truly get to experience a new city in a very up close and personal way. For families with older children, bicycle rentals are also a great way to get around and explore.

018-Master-BedroomA Room of Your Own: Hotel rooms are short on space and when you’re traveling with your family, a little extra wiggle room can be essential to keeping the peace. A short term apartment rental offers additional living space, along with the option for separate bedrooms. In addition, amenities that families may require during their stay including swimming pools, fitness areas and other recreational facilities will keep everyone occupied even when you’re not out exploring. What’s even better? These amenities are included in the cost of your rental. 

Enjoy the Adventure: Without a doubt, things will go wrong.  But family vacations aren’t about perfection but rather about enjoying life as it happens. Missing some spots on your tourist map? Relax, that just means you’ll have more to explore the next time. Keep it simple and enjoy the journey!

Short Term Apartment Rental vs. Hotels

April 25, 2014

Business tra010-View-of-the-Dining-Area_wmvel is filled with meetings, long conferences, and occasionally even longer evenings. It can be exhausting as a business executive to be on the go constantly. That is why it is important you choose your accommodations with care, so you have a chance to relax at the end of each day. Today, the trend is to opt for short-term apartment rentals rather than hotels.

Why Choose Short Term Apartment Rentals?
There are many reasons why business travelers are attracted to short term apartment rentals rather than hotels. Here are just a few of the reasons why people just like you are choosing to stay in high-quality furnished apartments:

Cost: Hotels can be expensive. In this day and age when the economy is still limping back after the recent recession, businesses are looking to cut costs. One of the best ways to save money during business travel is by choosing short term rentals. They offer all the amenities of a hotel, plus more at an extremely affordable cost. You never have to pay exorbitant rates for luxury, and this is what makes this option so attractive to business travelers.

Convenient Location: Most hotels are located in commercial zones and this can make it tedious to relax after a 045-Walk-Outside-to-Patio-Restaurants-on-Yonge_wmhectic day. Surrounded by busy roads, fast food restaurants and noise, it can be hard to get comfortable. When you stay in a conveniently located short term apartment rental, you have easy access to attractions, great dining options, parks for early morning jogs and other sources of entertainment while still feeling like you have your own private space away from the hustle and bustle.

Personalized Service: Hotels are notorious for their clinical atmosphere, while an apartment rental is more like a home away from home. Ensuring that each guest has a comfortable stay is crucial to the success of the apartment rental company. As a result, owners or managers will go out of their way to offer personalized services so that business travellers keep returning to their property.

027-Amenities-Fitness-Centre-Views_wmAmenities: An apartment rental for business travelers features all the amenities that business executives may require during their stay. Internet, satellite TV, fax, printer, secured parking, a refrigerator, microwave, clean linen, hairdryer, a large closet, recreational facilities, excellent housekeeping services and much more are available in your fully outfitted apartment rental. All these amenities are part and parcel of the rental and do not come at an additional cost.

Privacy: With a short term apartment rental, you do not have to hang a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign outside your door, like you have to do at a hotel. When you stay in an apartment rental, you can rest assured knowing no one will come knocking on your door to disturb you if you want to sleep in after a late night. You also can entertain your business guests in your apartment with ease. With a fully equipped kitchen, you can prepare your own meals or a late night snack without having to leave the comfort of your rental or order room service.
