Lots of last minute enquiries for holiday rentals in the Algarve

Jane a local agent based in the Algarve, Portugal sent us an email at the end of last week. "we are having lots of last minute enquiries - very hot here" We replied "It is probably all those people in Britain and Ireland who had been promised a great summer (well it was in Wimbledon fortnight!) and have been wet since".
Many people thought that they would not take an overseas holiday this year. The € euro has become much stronger against the GBP £ in the last year. It has lost a quarter of its value, however the wonderful weather that was forecast in April has still not arrive. Following on from a vet wet July in the UK, people are still looking for accommodation and with the state of the market you should stil be able to find self catering bargains.
Book your villa holiday, car hire and your travel insurance. If you are worried about the airline of villa owner going out of business have you considered "Financial Failure Travel Insurance"? This costs around £5 per person. Before you can think of a day at a cold wet beach in the south of England, you are in the Algarve staying at a villa like Villa Eleanor shown in the picture above. It is at Vale do Lobo and is handicap friendly.

Described as a three bedroom semi detached attractive villa with pool that has a jet stream, close to the tennis center, 15minutes walk to the beach, close to all other amenities. Modern decor, wheelchair accessible for both house, pool and gardens, child friendly and a lovely BBQ and outside dining fresco at last! Vale do Lobo is one of the best resorts in Europe with amenities close to none.
So if you are still thinking about a holiday in the sun, take a positive decision today.
