Rules of the Road

Posted on January 18, 2010. Filed under: Business, Coastal Uruguay, Travel/Tourism |

This seems like an annual lecture, but it appears the message has not been received.  If you’re visiting in high season, or March for that matter, reserve your vacation rental well in advance.

High season rentals, December through February were a done deal by August. As we’ve talked about many times, no one wants to rent for a few nights during any of these months. One week is the minimum. From mid December till early February, one week is consider a short-term rental.

Also, some people pressured for discounts and lost out……not this year. First of all, demand was strong in Piriapolis as well as Punta del Este and prices were tending up, not down. Secondly, rents are paid in US dollars; the dollar is down almost 20% from last year at this time. This creates upward pressure on rates as many owners have to convert dollars into pesos.

For those planning on a visit, I hope this helps.
