What is OwnerHolidays ?
A co-operative collaborative venture by holiday home owners
Owner Holidays is a new listing site for owners and guests of self-catering accommodation. It is a collaborative and cooperative venture founded and owned by independent holiday home owners. It is also suitable for small and medium sized agencies.
It has been developed as a response to recent changes in the holiday rental marketplace, which have meant a loss of control by owners, and extra charges imposed on both owners and guests.
For guests, it encourages close contact with owners and easy reliable booking. For owners, it advertises your properties, whether you have a sophisticated booking system, or a website only, or even just a telephone and email. It integrates with many other third party systems for calendar and other synchronisation.
At present, it is free to advertise for a year, and there are no charges to guests. The business model is to have wide share ownership within the holiday owner community so that resources can be shared for advertising, and owner control is established long term.
The founders are members of LayMyHat, and have wide experience in web software, business development and holiday property ownership.
