Advertisers FAQ's

Why advertise with Holiday Homes Direct?

As a holiday homeowner, it can be expensive and cumbersome to promote and market your property effectively. Many property owners have individual websites but getting traffic to these sites can be a difficult task. Holiday Homes Direct provides one website for people who are looking for privately owned holiday accommodation and we aim to increase your holiday rental income through effective advertising and an easy to use website providing detailed and easily accessible accommodation information.

Most of the advertisers on our site are private owners who let out their property for either some or all of the year. They receive booking enquiries from our site either directly to themselves or to their representative/agent who is managing their property.

What do you get when you advertise with Holiday Homes Direct?

Each advertiser gets a full-color page advertisement, including 24 photographs allowing them to showcase their property. The site has an availability calendar, which can be updated to show live availability. There is a contact form on the site so that booking enquiries can be forwarded directly by email. Any enquiries can be changed into a confirmed booking and the system will automatically update your availability calendar.

Statistics are also provided about bookings obtained and viewings made on your holiday rental property. However, as people generally use several different channels to promote their holiday home, the Holiday Homes Direct site can record bookings and enquiries from other sources too making it a very effective administrative tool.

Advertisers are provided with login details specific to their property and they can make changes to their page whenever they want and as often as they want.

How much is it to advertise on the Holiday Homes Direct website?

We offer 3 different packages allowing you to tailor-make your advertising to suit your needs. With prices from only EUR129, our site represents great value for money. We also offer a discount of 50% for all additional properties listed with us.
