London Holiday Rentals Soar During Olympic Games


Holiday home rental is a cost effective holiday accommodation especially for groups, however, Olympic fans heading for the capital could well pay three times more than other parts of the country or even popular resorts abroad.

A survey has found that the average cost per bedroom of a one week holiday rental in London in July and August is £711 as opposed to £217 in Yorkshire, £237 in North Wales or £242 in Cumbria.  Overseas rental was found to be £264 per room in Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, £274 in Andalucia in Spain and £281 in the Canary Islands, which includes Tenerife.
The research has suggested that 73% more Britons than normal will be heading for London in July and August this year.

After London, the next most expensive rental accommodation destination this summer is Dorset (£389) followed by Edinburgh (£370).

It is crucial that when renting out your holiday home for occasions such as the Olympics and other similar events to people you may not know, that you check your insurance policy to ensure that you are covered for such rentals. My Holiday Home Insurance are one of the UK’s leading providers of Holiday Home Insurance and have such policies to provide this form of insured protection.
