2017 Price & Availability List

You can now login create and update your own price and availability list for 2017. All of your late deals and special offers must now also be included in your price list (please see 'Late Deals' below).

Don't forget to include your availability for the whole season, customers cannot find your page when searching for availability if you do not include it.

Late Deals - Book out those fast approaching weeks

Don't forget to remove your late deal from the late deals section if your availability changes.

Advertising in our Late Deals section is free service that we provide to help maximise your letting potential.

To do this you must first have completed your price and availability list (see above). To be able to select a week the following criteria must be met:

  • Minimum listing is 3 nights. Maximum is 2 weeks
  • You must have a total price listed (not per night, or week if more than one week listed)
  • The start date must be within the coming 4 weeks
  • Only one late deal can be listed at any one time
  • You must remove your late deal when it is booked
  • To keep the late deals section up to date, your late deal needs to be re-listed after 7 days

All that we ask in return for this service is that you remove your late deal when it is booked by simply unticking it in your availability list. This will ensure that the late deals section is kept as accurate and up to date as possible.

To ensure the success of the late deals section it is vital that you remember to remove your late deal if your availability changes.

The late deals section is a service that we provide to help owners book out their last minute availability and as such we reserve the right to remove late deal privileges for owners who misuse the late deal section.

Remember: If you are unable to help someone, refer them to the late deals section – you may be desperate to book a late deal out yourself one day and grateful of any help!!

We reserve the right to remove this facility if there is evidence of it being misused. The price and availability lists and the late deals section must only to be used to advertise the price and availability or last minute availability of the holiday home referred to on the webpage.

Keeping your page up to date

It’s now time to start thinking about the 2017 season – although many of you have already started taking bookings!

Please take this opportunity to ensure your webpage is completely up to date. It is important for your prospective customers that any offers you have on your webpage are removed when no longer relevant.

Unfortunately we cannot possibly keep check on when your offers run out, so it is up to you to let us know. Don’t forget, you can update your webpage as many times as you wish throughout your advertising period – all you have to do is send us an e-mail and we will do the rest for you.

Price & Availability Lists

Owners who already have a price list on their webpage have found it invaluable as it not only reduces the amount of enquiries just looking for prices but also the repeat enquiries for the same week.

You can now create and update your own price and availability list for the 2017 season.

A great many users of the website will not bother contacting an owner if their list is blank.

Static Caravan Holiday Swaps

Many people have suggested we provide a ‘swap service’ whereby one owner swaps their holiday home for another owner’s for a week or possibly more. We completely agree that this is an excellent idea and the easiest way to accomplish this creating a holiday rental swap page.

If you are interested in swapping a holiday rental please contact us and your property will be added to the caravan swaps list.

When you see the swap logo on another webpage you know the owner is interested in swapping too. Static Caravan Holiday Swaps

Your E-mail Enquiries

It has been brought to our attention by many potential holidaymakers that despite sending genuine enquiries via individual webpages, some owners do not bother replying.

It is important for your own reputation that you reply to all enquiries, regardless of whether or not your property is available on the requested dates. It is just common courtesy, after all.

If you have no availability on this occasion, simply ignoring the enquiry will almost certainly result in this particular enquirer not bothering to contact you for future availability - why would they if you don't bother replying?

Amendment requests

You may make as many updates and amendments to your webpage as you wish throughout your advertising period.

Important: It is essential that when you request amendments to your webpage you not only include your property reference number but you also send your request from the e-mail address we forward your enquiries to. This is for obvious security purposes.

Complaints

For the integrity of our website it is vitally important that any complaints are kept to a minimum.

We have therefore imposed a ‘three strikes’ rule. In effect, what this means is that if any one owner receives more than two complaints, their webpage will be removed from our website and any monies paid will be non-refundable.
