Offsetting mortgage and running costs of the property.
Earning short term rental income from a property waiting to be sold.
Enjoying higher rental income by renting a property per week to holidaymakers.
Benefitting from greater flexibility than residential letting, where longer rental contracts are common

You also receive a free property advert in the Holiday Rentals section of property portal Zoopla.co.uk and aplaceinthesun.com.
How will I receive holidaymaker payments? Holidaymakers can pay you online using our secure HomeAway Payments. This automatically covers their payments against internet fraud for up to £10,000. Using HomeAway Payments will help avoid chargeback disputes, get more bookings and save you money, as we've negotiated the lowest transaction fees possible from only 1.4% for UK transactions.
What kind of response can I expect from my advert? The number of enquiries you receive will vary by region, however we guarantee you will get a minimum of 20 enquiries or we’ll refund your subscription fee after the first year. See our money back guarantee*** terms and conditions for details.
How does HomeAway compare with Holiday Lettings? HomeAway.co.uk delivers more email enquiries on average for properties than Holiday Lettings, our nearest competitor*. This helps us to drive fantastic booking levels for our owners.
I’m concerned about fraudulent activity, what do you do to prevent this? We have more than 700,000 listings globally across our sites, so we have invested considerably in security technology and created proprietary processes that have resulted in a less than 0.01% fail rate where fraudulent listings are published on our sites. We also have a dedicated trust & security team that continually works to lower that rate. As a result of our efforts, the incidence of a fraudulent listing being published on one of our websites is extremely rare.
Is it worth me advertising now as I feel it’s too late in the season? We do see peak times throughout the year for booking enquiries, however with our international presence and HomeAway websites worldwide, we benefit from strong holidaymaker demand all year round. There really is never a bad time to advertise.
