Booking holiday cottages or self catering accommodation on non-standard days
Most holiday cottages and self catering accommodation have set start days, typically a Friday or Saturday. This allows the holiday cottage owners and self catering accommodation booking agencies to maximise the occupancy of the cottages as guests arrive on the same day as the previous guests left. Thus there are no gaps in tenancy. This is normally specified in the property description.
Some holiday cottage owners and self catering accommodation booking agencies may allow you to book for a period that starts on a day other than the standard start day. You may need to check with them to arrange a booking.
If you are booking a short break, you need to check the property description for the start dates. Typically 2 night short breaks start on a Friday or a Saturday, 3 night short breaks start on a Friday and 4 night short breaks start on a Monday. This is a guide only as each holiday cottage owner or self catering accommodation booking agency may have its own rules.
