The clocks have now gone back and we have long dark evenings, what better time to think about next year‘s holiday and that is the time when the holiday home owner should be thinking about marketing their property.

With more and more people owning holiday rental properties in Europe and worldwide it is most important that the owners can give the property as much exposure as possible. Many people have seen a downturn in bookings this year because of the recession.

In many cases they have a large mortgage to service and as the number of properties available grow the more important it is to get the marketing right.

Back in 2001 jml Property Services were one of the early entries into the Internet marketing of “self catering holiday homes rentals on-line” They launched in the summer of 2001 which was later re-branded as,

Advertising costs are incredibly inexpensive at just £11.75 per year for a full page advertisement with six photos and a link to the property owner‘s website. The owner can change details, availability, photos and other information as often as he / she wants to.

November and December are the ideal times to list self catering holiday rentals and now advertises properties in over thirty one countries worldwide and the numbers are continuing to increase.

Philip went onto say”Property owners should make sure that give a very detailed and interesting description of their holiday rental and surrounding area. The price should be competitive reflecting the current economic climate and offer quality for money”

The site offers links to travel insurance holiday home property insurance, car hire and car hire excess insurance.
