Holiday-Rentals launches US Network

Holiday-Rentals.co.uk is pleased to announce the opening
of its US Network to UK advertisers, which is a major step towards the creation of
the world’s most complete marketplace for holiday home rentals.
In a recent survey
of over 400 advertisers, Holiday-Rentals.co.uk found that 95% were keen to advertise
internationally, but felt that having to administer multiple adverts in different
countries could be difficult and time-consuming.

The US Network product solves this problem, since owners can now manage their
adverts and renter enquiries from just one place; their Holiday-Rentals.co.uk
account. By subscribing to the US Network for just £95, owners can extend the reach
of a Holiday-Rentals.co.uk advert to an additional 25 million renters. Their advert
will be displayed on four of America’s leading sites; HomeAway.com,
GreatRentals.com, CyberRentals.com and A1Vacations.com.

 

Nicky from Gloucestershire, an advertiser with Holiday-Rentals.co.uk commented,
“This is an excellent idea and a far less complicated way of spreading the news
about your property. Holiday-Rentals.co.uk is one of the easiest and most efficient
rental sites to use and to be able to advertise internationally will be a great
advantage. We are constantly approached by other rental sites, however they are
overcomplicated and difficult to use.”

The US market represents a massive opportunity for holiday home owners. In fact,
over 70% of the owners who said they would like to advertise internationally
indicated that this market was their top priority. The 2005 profile of US travellers
visiting overseas destinations (source: http://tinet.ita.doc.gov/) showed that close
to 30 million Americans travelled abroad last year and that the most common travel
information source was the Internet. Furthermore, in the first half of 2006, just
under 20 million Americans travelled overseas; a 5% increase on the previous year.

 

Alexis de Belloy, managing director, Holiday-Rentals.co.uk commented, ‘If we look at
the number of properties available on rent-by-owner sites like
Holiday-Rentals.co.uk, we can see that a large number of the 250,000 Brits that own
holiday homes are looking to rent them out for extra income, or to cover costs. The
Internet is an extremely cost efficient and effective channel for doing this.”

 

“With over 10 years’ experience marketing holiday homes, Holiday-Rentals.co.uk is
Europe’s number 1 rent by owner site, with over 19,000 properties worldwide,
renter-friendly pages and advanced search options, making it the most efficient
channel for advertising a holiday home. The launch of the US Network allows our
advertisers to reach a combined audience of 32 million renters in the UK and US and
is a significant step in our strategy to create a global solution for local
advertisers”.
