Reputable Rental Agent
How to Choose a Reputable Bali Villa Rental Agent?
It is important to choose a legally registered rental agent to ensure that booking a villa in Bali is a hassle free experience. This can be verified by taking a close look at their website credentials as well as contact details in Bali including a permanent address and telephone number. A reputable rental agent should have endorsement from a related business association.
Credit Card Payment
Additionally, a bonafide agent will accept credit card payments, which reflects that they are a licensed company with recognition from a bank or other financial institution. If you choose to make payment on your prospective villa rental via bank transfer, make sure that the name of the account corresponds to the company that you are dealing with. If the company and bank account names differ, investigate the reason why before committing to the transfer if details and circumstances appear suspicious. Do not accept an unjustifiable excuse as this indicates an unprofessional approach to business.
More Affordable – More Space and Facilities
Villa accommodation is generally a more affordable option in comparison to staying in a hotel room of the same calibre. You also have the added incentive of enjoying facilities such as your own private swimming pool and tropical garden that you don’t have to share with others. There is plenty of lounge space to sunbathe unexposed around the pool without having to feel shy or inhibited.
It is cause for concern if a rental agent suddenly offers you a much lower rate for a villa as opposed to other agencies. Reputable rental agents always honour their contract agreements with villa owners and management companies. Slight price variations in price are common; however, a binding legal agreement regulates fair competitive pricing within the market.
