      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Avoid Holiday Lettings at all costs. They will take your money and refuse to place your ad

      Dear Mr Dixon,

      Unfortunately, I fail to "understand" what this is about.

      I recently bought this apartment and part of the arrangement was that the seller would advertise the apartment for me on various sites, yours being one of them. The ad has gone up on various sites without any problem and I want to know exactly what is going on here.

      This ad has been paid for and considerable efforts have gone into placing it on your site.

      "refrain from making attempts at placing an advert with Holiday Lettings in the future"

      I take the above as a threat and will be taking this to the appropriate body for action against your company.

      Geoff Sloan.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        do not advertise on Holiday Lettings

        I placed an ad on the internet and was promised by the people from Holiday Lettings that I would get my money back when there were less that 20 responses. Now it turns out there are a lot of requirements that must be met, but that I was not told. I was online 2 month and got not any response.
        I was so mad that I had the ad removed and stuff the money. I am really mad. What an easy way to make some 250 pounds and do nothing for it.
        I heard later that I had to offer the apartment for 25 weeks although I told the saleman that it would only be for 16 weeks.
        He or she also recommended a special ad on another website for a few pounds more.
        That, he manage to remember to say but not the conditions for a money back guarantee.

        Hi,I used Holidaylettings to rent a property in Italy. A word of warning as they do not check the quality of the properties they advertise. All they do is act as an intermediary with poor communication if you ask me. My property was disgusting and after claiming some money back they refused to assist me with the claim. If you have an option do NOT use them and go with a more reputable company that you can Trust. I had a really bad experience and they are not to be trusted. I ended up paying for the property and a hotel! if you want more details contact me on jmsandes@yahoo.com

        Very useful site

        This website advertises holiday homes on behalf of the owners. It says there are more than 30,000 homes listed, across 114 countries.

        I've used the site to rent a holiday home, so I'm writing this from that viewpoint - I can't tell you what it is like to advertise with the site.

        The homeowners write their own adverts. The website is really just to put holidaymakers in touch with holiday homeowners.

        ** How it works **
        You choose options from various dropdown lists to search for your ideal holiday home. There is a wide variety of things that you can specify, or you can leave items blank. So I wanted somewhere in Spain but didn't care where, needed at least 3 bedrooms, knew the dates that I wanted, and needed somewhere that cost less than a certain amount. I also wanted a beach, air conditioning, and a garden.

        The website finds a list of properties that meet your criteria. Unlike some other sites that I've used, it really does only find the appropriate places. You can order the list by price or size. For each property the list shows the location, size, price, the distance to the beach, pool, and other amenities, a photo, and the beginning of the longer description. So you can quickly skim past any properties that aren't right for you and get to the ones that are.

        You add properties that you are interested in to your personal shortlist.

        The descriptions are long and detailed, with lots of photos. This is great - it is good to know what you are getting! You can check availability online, and send an enquiry to the owner if you want to know more.

        If you decide to rent a home, the contract is between you and the owner and isn't done by the website. They do provide guidelines to help you make sure you are renting a genuine holiday home, and don't get ripped off.

        ** Why I used it **
        I found it very easy to find suitable holiday homes using the search facility. It was great to be able to specify the non-negotiable things, and then look at the cheapest homes first. If I'd wanted to stay in a particular place, and had a bit more money to spend, I could have searched for that too.

        I also liked the amount of detail in the descriptions - you really feel like you know what you are getting.

        Because the adverts are written by the owners, occasionally you come accross one that is not quite as detailed or coherent as others. I'm struggling to think of other things that I didn't like about the website - I think the main problem might be too much choice!
