Cvo in Times paper re rentals

Post by Alison »

Nice pic of cvo beach in the Travel doctor section of The Times newspaper today: warning of excessive fees by HomeAway (taken over Owners Direct), AirB&B etc.

Ref my posts a couple of years ago advocating new company SimplyOwners.net. This company set out to replace what had been the successful formula of Owners Direct until Expedia took it over and wrecked it by preventing direct contact between guest and owner until money had been paid up, and by adding excessive service charges and fees.

We’ve been with SimplyOwners since then and highly recommend them - they do what it says on the tin: put potential guests and owners in touch with each other in a secure manner without excessive extra fees for anyone. Enquiries were slow in their first year but we believed in their model so stuck with them and they are now doing very well for us.
