How to avoid fraud when renting holiday homes in the Algarve?


You should be aware that every summer, there are numerous complaints to the authorities about holiday home rental fraud in the area before we even present our recommendations for holiday rentals in the Algarve for the summer of 2023. Always prefer to organise your holiday stay with a reputable company. Casas do Barlavento has been operating in the Western Algarve for 20 years in the field of local accommodation management, and our main objective is to be transparent and guarantee the well-being of our guests.

Unfortunately, there are always scams with holiday homes in the Algarve. By doing this, we hope to help you avoid scams by offering you some advice.

  1. In advance, look for your holiday rental in the Algarve. Being pressed for time tempts you to make snap judgments, which occasionally result in scams.
  2. Always be wary of unfamiliar websites or ads on social media. Make questions or look for comments from other customers.
  3. Be suspicious of ads with low prices. This is one of the most common methods used by scammers to attract the attention of prospective customers.
  4. Once you have found a house you like, search for that holiday home on another platform. If you found the same house on other platforms, check if the price asked there is the same. Scammers tend to "steal" pictures of houses on the internet that are intended for holiday rentals to give the impression that it is a trustworthy company.
  5. If you have any doubts about the seriousness of the company when contacting the owner of the holiday home, immediately ask for the extract from the land register. This way, you can make sure that it is not a scam.
  6. Search the internet for testimonials from other customers. A trustworthy company will always have references from previous clients.
  7. If you have the opportunity, visit the house before the holiday season.
  8. When making a payment, make sure that the name on the account matches the name of the alleged owner.
  9. If you cannot avoid being scammed, be sure to report it to the police.
  10. Always rent your holiday home to experienced companies. Discover our range of holiday homes in the Algarve and spend a relaxing holiday.
