How do you book your holiday?

Posted by Rosie

With some big changes currently occurring in one of the main sites we advertise the gite on I feel that we need some feedback about how people book a self catering holiday, such as at Eco-Gites of Lenault.  I have therefore designed a survey and hope that the results should help us decide the best way to market ourselves over the coming months and years. 

I would be really grateful if you could fill in the survey below and point any friends or family to this post, if they, too, book self catering holidays.  The survey take no more than a couple of minutes to fill in and is totally anonymous ... although if you want to add any more points or feedback you can do so with a comment here.


Many thanks in advance.


Survey Now Closed

  1. Hi Rosie, I went to take your survey, but as we stay with family when we go away, I was of absolutely no help to you and was dropped at the first question. Sorry!

    1. No worries, Debbie, and thank you so much for trying! It is a specific audience I am after.

  2. I've done it! My only comment is that I prefer a results list in order of price- no point reading about 5 star places that are out of my price range!

    1. Thank you so much. I didn't include pricing as that is usually an option that the holiday maker can tick. In comparison, credit cards and where owners have paid for a premium listing are not usually tickable and can be controlled by the rental site ie pay us more and we'll list you higher. Reviews are sometimes a tickable option but not on all sites.

  3. Done! I agree with the list by pricing option. Also like to list by availability of criteria I selected (pool, aircon etc).

    1. Thank you - the options I gave are generally those that the holiday maker has no control over and are decided by the rental site ... and I don't know one owner who likes the idea that the only way they can appear further up the listings is if they pay 2-3 time more for a platinum listing. It is a system very weighted against the small individual owner.

    1. Thank you Victoria - replies had pretty much dried up and as I had a couple of hours to go though the results I closed it. I'll be blogging about it soon so please do add any comments then.

I love receiving comments and I do read every one but if you are simply here to spam me with a link, guess what ... I won't publish it.
