Holidirect.comHolidirect.com is a new rental property portal to launch in the Algarve, and we believe in a different way of doing business.

The Holidirect innovation gives the reins of control back to property owners in a professional environment AND provides holidaymakers with a straight forward and personal way to book their holiday, with none of the additional charges they are forced to pay by other rental property portals.

The Holidirect way is simple, and we intend it to stay that way!

Own a property?

We connect property owners and managers directly with holidaymakers. Unlike 99% of our competitors we feel that the best way to run our company is to give the control back to the owner/manager - you can talk directly to your guests to complete their reservation, organise damage deposits, discuss special arrangements and take payment.

As an owner/manager you create your own detailed property page featuring a range of images, a detailed description and live availability etc. Holidaymakers enquire about your property, and you manage your own bookings.

We offer two simple ways to advertise on Holidirect, allowing you to choose the payment plan that suits you as an owner...

Two simple advertising options on Holidirect

Both advertising options include a private dashboard to manage your listings, calendar and bookings, plus unlimited text, photos, Google map, pricing, booking terms, availability and email alert for enquiries. You can include details about your accommodation, the facilities, the area, your availability calendar, your rates and any additional charges, etc.

Planning a holiday?

Holidirect.com connects holidaymakers with property owners and managers directly, to find a unique accommodation option for every taste and budget.

We don't believe in charging booking or administration fees, so the site is completely free-to-use for holidaymakers.

Search Holidirect today and get the space, privacy and comfort you want, making THIS holiday the BEST EVER! 

Who are we?

We are in fact owners and managers of our own rental properties, and have experienced the shortcomings of other property rental websites while trying to market our own properties. We have put together many years of experience in both the IT and holiday rental business and created Holidirect.com with the owner AND traveller in mind, providing the functionality, performance and features they always wanted in a holiday property rental site.

Holidirect.com has been developed from the ground up to provide a flexible platform which can cater for all types of holiday rental properties, with the future ability to adapt and grow.
We are always upgrading the infrastructure of our site, and welcome feedback - it allows us to improve, and will help us become the #1 choice for owners and holidaymakers!

Quoting Charly:
Will these guys apply mandatory AL legislation ?
Or is this another company taking ILLEGAL advantage
of Portugal...

It is not up to websites to police the (failed) Portuguese AL legislation . The State really is not interested in applying the AL rules anyway with just 18% of rental properties registered in two years. If the property owners do not want to register, it is up to the authorities to act, which they won't. The AL rules have been accurately described as 'for foreigners only' leaving the field open for Portuguese owners to ingore the legislation and evade taexes in most cases. Anyway, 'don't shoot the messenger' and good luck to this new service.

All owners of Portuguese rental properties obviously have a legal obligation to obtain a rental licence before accepting bookings, but it's not the responsibility of portals to enforce that at the moment. Large companies like Home away, Owners Direct, and Holiday Lettings don't even ask for it.
