I have an agent who deals with all my rentals, why do I need you?
HolidayHomeRenta.co.uk’s owners faced the same dilemma but ended up using both! You can continue to use an agent but have the flexibility to book on your own as well. By booking yourself, you can negotiate a lower commission rate from the property manager or rental agent for any referrals, which the owner sends their way. After all, if you find the rental client, why should they get their full commission? In addition, typical estate agents tend to aggressively book properties in the summer/peak season when your property is most in demand. Our website aggressively promotes your property as a holiday destination to a global audience all year round.
I have more than one property, what should I do?
You can list as many properties as you wish. If you have multiple properties in the same building which are identical e.g. 5 * “2 bedroom, 1 bathroom flats” and the photos are the same, you can advertise them under a single listing. However, if you have more than one property with a different number of bedrooms or bathrooms and/or are significantly different in any other way, you must list them individually. This will generate a much higher exposure rate for your property and therefore a higher likelihood of better search results, while also retaining the integrity of the search results for the user.
I already have the next 6 months fully booked, so why would I want to do this?
By advertising with HolidayHomeRental.co.uk, you are maximising your renting potential. It is never too early to market your property for the next year: many holiday-makers book their properties 6-12 months in advance. Remember, you don’t have to pay a commission so why not pre-book. Also, you may end up getting more bookings in the off-season.
I only have paper photos (I do not have digital ones) – is there anything I can do?
Simple, mail a copy of them to the address below and include a stamped self-addressed envelope. We will scan and upload them to the website for you (all part of the HolidayHomeRental.co.uk service). Once we have scanned the photographs, we will return them in the envelope you enclosed. Mail to:

If my property is one of many on your website, how can I achieve a higher listing?
HolidayHomeRental.co.uk has an "Intelligent Weighting System" which utilizes an algorithm that allows us to rank the order of property results based on a mixture of the following items:
- Number of photos uploaded (max is 12 photos)
- Details in the property description (more details, means higher weighting)
- Providing a link to your own website
- Linking from your own website back to our website (weighted very highly)
- Calendar availability updated (highest weighting for a calendar which has been updated within the past 60 days)
- Date in which the owner first logged in and updated their profile (higher weighting for longer standing members)
- Having a virtual tour of your property
