QHow do I check availability for a villa?
ASimply let our HV team know the dates you’re interested in, and we will ascertain availability within hours, if not sooner. Automated calendars from outside sources can be inaccurate – bookings and cancellations often outpace updates – and so we prefer to get you a reliable answer by communicating directly with the owner in real time.

QWill my driver's license be sufficient to rent a car?
AWe strongly advise that you purchase an International Driving Permit (IDP) from an authorized provider such as AAA or CAA when travelling internationally. It is not a standalone document as it is only accepted in tandem with your original driver's license. While you may not be asked for an IDP when renting a car, in many countries you are required to have one and risk an extra fine should you commit a traffic infringement. For a very small fee, the IDP is worth the peace of mind.
