If you are looking to generate additional rental income, you may be tempted to pay for advertising - THINK AGAIN !!
Most adverts, whether they are in a newspaper, glossy magazine or on the internet, generate no bookings and very few enquiries and we recommend, therefore, that you only use free advertising or where payment is on the basis of a commission on actual bookings.
CostaDreams will publish full details of your property on the web free of charge, including:
* Full Description
* Upto six photographs
* Property checklist
* Rental Prices & Availability Calendar
* Contact Details
The site is registered with all the major search engines and your advert will be displayed everyday of the year to a worldwide audience.
Your property is a valuable asset, which can provide a substantial income, but without effective advertising it may remain unbooked for many weeks in the year.
More and more people have computers at home and are using them to purchase holidays direct, rather than going through an agent or responding to newspaper adverts. In the UK alone over 30 million adults are now online, an you can reach all these potential customers and millions more in countries worldwide with an advert on www.CostaDreams.com
Instead of seeing a very brief description in a newspaper, holidaymakers can see full details of your property and can make an informed choice.
Please send full details of your property to advertise@CostaDreams.com
Please provide as much information as you can, including:
* Brief description for title and introduction
* Key Features e.g. Property Type, Private or Communal Pool, Number of Bedrooms, Air Conditioning, Sleeps how many, etc
* Property Facilities e.g. kitchen equipment, air conditioning, tv, barbecue, etc
* Local Facilities e.g. shops, beaches, golf, etc
* Rental costs by Date Range
* Any additional charges
* Any Additional Information
* Booking Arrangements - deposit required and payment terms
* Cancellation and Refund Policy
* Any arrangements for airport transfers
* Contact Details
We will require good quality internal and external photographs of your property, which can be sent electronically as attachments if you have digital photos, or we can scan good quality prints.
On receipt of this information, we will prepare your advert for approval and, when you have approved the advert, your property will be added to our listings..
CostaDreams have now introduced a new section for "Long Term Rentals" in addition to the Holiday Rentals section - Please clarify whether you wish to rent your property out on a long term contractual basis or as a holiday let
For maximum exposure of your property we recommend that you also use the services of RentalSystems.com, who operate the VillaRenters.com site.

A major benefit to both you and your customers, which will set you apart from other property owners, is the ability to accept credit card payments. Why not JOIN NOW , you have nothing to lose and everything to gain !!
