As the summer travel season heats up, the travel planning experts at Villas of Distinction®, the world’s premier villa rental company as part of World Travel Holdings, share five travel mistakes to avoid when planning for and going on vacation.

1. Don’t waste time endlessly searching. Many people just don’t have time these days to muddle through thousands of web pages searching for a vacation that fits one’s vacation desires. Villa Specialists are trained vacation experts that can match a client’s vacation requirements to the perfect destination and accommodations. Villa Specialists at Villas of Distinction have an average of 14 years’ of knowledge and experience, and work closely with Concierges who can take care of every detail of a villa rental from a client’s front door to the destination and back.

2. Don’t wait in long lines at the airport and car rental counter. Another perk of having a Concierge team readily available during the planning process is that in select locations, the Concierge can arrange for a rental car to be delivered to the villa. Take the pre-arranged airport transfer and find a rental car in the driveway ready to explore the destination. Or take advantage of airport fast track*, which enables vacationers to depart the plane and meet a greeter who takes them to a special line in customs, makes sure the customs card is properly completed, sit in a well-appointed lounge with snacks and Internet access, and wait for their driver in the lounge.

3. Don’t waste time trying to find things to do on vacation. Talk about adding value to the vacation planning process … a Villas of Distinction Concierge can plan a vacation from start to finish before the vacation even starts. From home to airport transfers; pre-stocked groceries; and villa yoga and massages to booking tours and excursions; golf tee times; chef services and restaurant reservations, customers won’t need to lift a finger or waste precious time planning the vacation.

4. Don’t deal with crowds. How many times have family and friends complained about not being able to find a lounge chair at the pool or about the drunken neighbors fighting in the room next door? A vacation rental takes the stress of crowds and unruly company away from what is supposed to be a relaxing vacation. Villas not only provide the privacy of accommodations, but also the privacy of a pool and sometimes even a beach.

5. Don’t miss out on quality time with family and friends. Sometimes people forget that a vacation is not only about getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but forming a deeper connection with family and friends through quality time. The layouts of vacation rentals allow space and privacy, but everyone is together in one location. It is especially convenient for large groups such as reunions or multigenerational travel, a popular growing trend. Imagine preparing a meal together and sharing it at one table overlooking a breathtaking view of the ocean or mountains. Or, watching a sunset together on the terrace.

The villa experts at Villas of Distinction wish everyone a mistake-free vacation this summer. For more information or to book a luxurious villa rental, call a Villa Specialist at 1-800-289-0900 or visit VillasofDistinction.com.
