As I wrote about in the previous blog to this one, there are changes afoot in the holiday advertising business that may not be to the advantage of small private owners like us here at Eco-Gites of Lenault. Rather than sit by and watch our bookings fall, a group of holiday home owing friends and myself have got together to organise a new way to book your self catering holiday - a Facebook group called "Book your Holiday Direct with the Owner".
It is a very simple way of finding a holiday that suits you and enables holiday makers to deal direct with owners and not pay any commission or booking fees.
Please come and join our group to where you have 2 ways to help you find a holiday:
Photo AlbumsLook through the relevant albums based on where you want to go and what type of holiday you want and contact the owner via their Facebook page or website
Posts to the GroupPlace a post on the group timeline asking for the type of holiday you would like. Owners will respond and other holiday makers can make suggestions.
Holiday Home Owners
Owners of quality holiday homes and B&Bs in the UK and France are welcome to join the group. Once a member you will have 2 ways of promoting your holidays:
Photo AlbumsWe have created a series of photo albums based on location and property type ie child friendly, good for walkers etc. Owners can place one photo in each album together with a short description and links to their Facebook page and webpage.
Posts to the GroupYou can post about your holiday property/special offers/latest availability etc ONCE a day on the group's wall.
