Our experts are here to help with all your questions about Italy. This month, how to rent or buy a house in Italy, and to what extent you will be covered for medical care when Britain leaves the EU…



Q How would you go about getting the best deal on your holiday rental in Puglia? There are so many more ways to book these days that we’d like some practical advice on how to find the best location at the best price.

AThere can be a huge difference in the cost of a holiday rental, and the difference often depends on who you book the rental through and how you pay for it.

What you often find is that owners will advertise their rental properties with different agencies. Some of these agencies will add extra fees to the base rental, meaning that the cost to you can be substantially higher than the advertised price. Agencies will justify these extra fees by saying that the additional cost to you includes guarantees or insurance that the property is as advertised, though previous guests’ reviews are often as good a guide to this.

Some of the larger agencies are really just shop windows for advertising properties and do not fully know or understand each property’s individual features – such as its layout, location, distance to shops, restaurants, beaches, and other essentials.
