The daffodils are out, the sun is trying to get through and the clocks go forward next weekend. So, it’s about now when we all turn our thoughts to the Spring clean. A bit of decorating, some gardening, or just a clear out of all those overfull cupboards – they are all things we promise ourselves we’ll do once the days start getting a little longer.

Of course there are still travel agents on the high street, but increasing numbers of people are choosing to organise their travel themselves. Booking directly through tour operators and flight companies and using home exchange sites or rental sites like Airbnb can be a way to find interesting and alternative places to stay. So, with more people looking for that ‘home from home’ experience when travelling, more people are finding they can earn a little extra income by renting out their home or a room in their home to holiday makers or people travelling for business.
