Finding accommodation while on a business trip can be challenging – you need to choose between different sizes, prices, and locations – and you often don’t know how long you will be staying for. Of all the different options available, furnished apartments have become quite popular and they are a great alternative for hotel rooms.
Furnished apartments are perfect for business executives as they offer convenience and style. They are available in almost any major city in South Africa, especially business hubs like Sandton and Cape Town. These apartments can be rented on a short- or long term basis, which is ideal for most travellers. They don’t want to be tied into a long contract, so a short term rental is ideal.
A furnished apartment offers various benefits:
- Fully furnished for your convenience
- More privacy than a hotel
- Spacious and comfortable
- More affordable than a hotel
- Short- or long term leases available
Close to Amenities
Furnished apartments can be rented so that they are close to major highways and airports, to make travelling easier to do. If you spend a lot of time on the road, you want to be close to all the things you need, so that you won’t have to spend unnecessary time driving around. Apart from business hubs, you can also look at other amenities like restaurants, shopping centres and parks. You can find out where the closes gymnasiums and sports centres is, if you want to train in your private time.
Working with an Agent
If you don’t have the time or the expertise to find the apartment you need, you can work with a professional agent to help you find exactly what you need. Agents often have furnished apartments ready and available, so that you can get one on short notice. If your lease needs to be extended, they can arrange that for you. An agent is ideal to work with as they can help you to go through the options and find one that is close to the area you need to be in, as well as negotiate the price.
