    Hello…has anyone tried advertising on any of the holiday rental websites?

    I have a small apartment in Asturias that I rent out short term, mainly for holiday rentals but have found that bookings have been few and far between this year, I guess due to the euro/ pound rates and general economic climate.

    Presently we just advertise on our own website but I am thinking whether to start my own Asturias only holiday rental site or join one of the main existing…but as they are all at least 100 UKPs and seem pretty alike, I would be grateful for any personal experiences..

    Oh and if anyone fancies swapping an unbooked week anytime, let me know!!

    A big vote for OwnersDirect who have been solid performers for years. Another option is VillaRenters which has two features I quite liked – it allows the customer to book by credit card which can save hassle and they take a commission – so no bookings, no payment to them (obviously if they deliver a lot of bookings you will be paying more than the typical 100-200£ annual charge but you’ll be happy with the bookings).
    Before you choose one be sure to play around with the search engines to see which sites come up when you type in phrases that might apply to your place.

    Hi, from a renters perspective, I have always found HolidayLettings website very good to use. I have rented property in Spain from their website over the last 5 years. Easy to search etc.

    Hi, we have used hoildayrentals.co.uk extremely successfully. We could hardly have fitted anyone else in this summer in a recession!
    We heard locally that holidaylettings were the site that was used to scam people – when they had paid their money band arrived from the UK on their flights the villas they were supposed to be renting did not exist, or were new properties not available for rent. Be warned!
