How to effectively publish a holiday rental classified ad

Publishing a holiday rental online has become easier and quicker than ever. Countless websites have emerged in recent years and fortunately for you, most of them are still completely free.

Here are the right questions to ask before publishing your rental classified ad.

Where to publish your ad

Local newspapers are still very effective. The local classifieds is a real opportunity because you can reach readers who live nearby and are actively seeking rentals. Placing an ad in the local newspaper in your community is a good way to generate new bookings. You would even be able to meet your guests face to face before the travel if needed.

There are also many websites around there specialized in publishing classified ads. Search on Google for “holiday rental” and “vacation rental” to see what the first results are. You now just have to choose on which sites you’ll place your ads. We recommend you start preferably by websites and magazines that have a good reputation because it guarantees visits. Choose websites with thousands of active visitors every day.
 

How to write your ad

If this is the first time you post an ad, here are some tips to get you started.

Number one goal is efficiency. Make sure you choose the right category where your ad will be published. If you have any doubt before choosing a category, check out the other offers already published there to inspire you.

After you’ve selected the category, it’s important to write a short but descriptive text. Get to the point indicating the key factors of our resort’s location and apartments.
