Advertising FAQs


What happens when I register?

You sign up for an account and, using our straightforward step-by-step process, you create your listing. During this process, we gather information about your rental as well as your trading preferences. Once complete, you can update your calendar, prices, description, etc., ensuring that your listing is accurate.

Our team is on hand to guide you in setting up your listing and to assist you in sidestepping common mistakes.

Adding photos

What kinds of photos should I upload?

When you register, we encourage you to share images of your rental. This is because guests enjoy viewing pictures while choosing their accommodations. We suggest sharing images of both the interior and exterior of your space. Don't worry about professional quality; even smartphone pictures can effectively capture the essence of your place for potential guests.

Updating your listing

Will I be able to update my account/listing details at a later date?

After registering with us, you can modify your details whenever you wish via your dashboard. Whether you offer a new facility or wish to share more about the rental, you can update this information at your own convenience.


Do I need to keep my availability calendar up to date?

Ideally you should keep your calendar up to date. However, we understand that you may list your rental accross multiple platforms as well as your own website, so keeping your availabilty up to date can be a chore. For this reason we offer a calendar syncing tool, that allows our calendar to be synchronised with others.

Going live

When will my listing be published?

Once you've successfully completed the listing creation process, our dedicated team reviews the provided details. After ensuring that everything is ok, they then proceed to publish your listing. This process can take up to 24 hours, and we email you once completed.

Once live, potential guests will make enquiries/check availability via your listing.

Dealing with enquiries
