In the vacation or tourist rental, the stay cannot exceed 31 nights and a tourist license must be available. This allows a greater rotation of clients in shorter periods, so you can obtain the maximum profitability and flexibility.
On the contrary, the seasonal rental ranges from 1 to 11 months, allowing more stable reservations and income, without the need to rent your property for years. For this type of rental it is not necessary to have a tourist license.
The tourist license is only necessary if you want to rent an apartment for stays of less than 31 nights. Otherwise, if you want to rent your property for periods between 1 and 11 months, this license is not necessary.
Both options will allow you to have all the benefits of renting your property for days or months; without ties or contracts for years with the tenant, to be able to dispose of your property when you need it.
Currently, if a habitual residence contract is formalized, the tenant can remain in it for up to five years if the landlord is a natural person or seven years if they are a legal person, even if a shorter time has been indicated in the contract. On the contrary, the seasonal rental contract ends at the end of the established term.
On the other hand and among other differences, in regular home rentals, the tenant can withdraw from the contract after 6 months from the signing, while if it is seasonal there is no such period and the tenant does not have the right to rescind the contract.
For this reason, renting your apartment for seasons will allow you much more flexibility and you will have more guarantees. Likewise, you will be able to adjust the rental price according to your needs and according to the demand and the market trend, without having to wait years until the contract ends.
