Free listing sites for holiday rentals

A free listing site for holiday rentals is an online directory specifically dedicated to holiday rentals. It is designed and marketed to offer holiday options to holiday makers and to generate holiday rental enquiries for owners.

The Internet is increasingly the first place renters turn to when choosing and organising their holiday and one of the best ways to have your holiday home seen online is to use holiday listing sites.

Created with the holiday home owner in mind, these sites make the process of setting up an advert as simple as possible. Generally they allow plenty of room for a comprehensive property description and offer space for anything between one and fifty photographs. Access to edit the listing can be made at any time from any computer that has an Internet connection.

Good listing sites will do a lot of marketing and endeavour on getting to the top of search engine results pages. Most will also run promotions in newspapers and magazines attracting potential renters to their listings.

Some listing sites are free and it is these portals that this section looks at.
