4 Reasons a Furnished Apartment Isn't the Best for Your Vacation

A furnished or a serviced apartment is one of the more talked about accommodation option when traveling. It is considered as good as a hotel but is cheaper than one. Sounds good to be true, doesn't it? It's because it is. While it is true that a furnished apartment is cheaper than a hotel, it is not necessarily better. There are some cases where staying at a hotel is a cheaper way to spend your trip.

  1. Short Duration of Stay

    Staying in furnished apartment is an excellent choice if you'll be staying for about a month or at least two weeks. If you're on a business trip, for example, you can't stay in a hotel for several weeks. Your expenses will go through the roof, unless everything is funded by your company. However, if you're just visiting for a few days, a hotel might be the cheaper option.

  2. Leaving Home Behind

    Furnished apartments give you a sense of home. It is nice if you want to cook your own food, do your own laundry, and such; which is, again, only possible if you're staying for quite a while. If your trip is for the purpose of escaping the worries back home, however, a hotel would do you better. The moment you walk into a hotel room, you are reminded that you're somewhere else now; somewhere else where you can actually have fun. If you want to forget home, even for just a few days, book a hotel room instead of a furnished apartment.

  3. A Full Vacation Experience

    Vacations are for fun, excitement, and a little bit of luxury. Who hasn't dreamt of sitting on the beach sipping piƱa coladas? If you want a full vacation experience, hotels are the way to go. Better yet, go for bed and breakfast so you're forced to soak in the culture of the place you're visiting. Furnished apartments are also good, but it is a taste of home that you agreed to leave the moment you stepped on a plane.

  4. Not Willing to Pay High Deposits

    If you'd rather save your money for random expenses throughout the trip, then you can  settle for a bed and breakfast or a hotel. Furnished apartments can come cheap in the  long run, but some landlords require at least a month's stay of safety deposit. Most may even require three months, depending on what's allowed in the state or city.

When thinking about accommodation expenses, always remember to look down the road. Hotels may be more expensive in the long run, but they are cheaper for really short stays. Serviced apartments are cheaper for long stays but the safety deposits are
something to keep in mind.

Also remember that the prices change depending if it's peak season or not. To stay updated, look online for accommodation options. You can compare prices through online brochures, or ring hotels up and see if they have any specials going on. This goes
the same for serviced apartments.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
