Founded earlier this year, and officially launched on July 1st, Holidirect is the innovation of friends and colleagues Sue Lewis and Sue Englefield. As owners and managers of our their own rental properties, they have experienced the shortcomings of property rental websites, and so have put together many years of experience in both the IT and holiday rental business and seized the opportunity to create a platform for owners to advertise and manage their own properties, and provide holidaymakers with a straight forward and personal way to book their holiday.
"Holidirect.com is an online marketplace with the owner AND traveller in mind. We put clients in touch with the owners directly, and do not charge all the extras fees that have become 'the norm' these days. Our goal is to provide a simple yet effective service for owners and holidaymakers."
Owners can showcase their properties, manage their own bookings, and deal with clients and payments directly, with no admin fees or service charges to pay.
Holidaymakers can search and compare properties to suit their needs, and use the simple and straight forward Reservation Request form to contact the property owner directly, providing an efficient and personal way to book their holiday. The added bonus for holidaymakers is that there are no additional to pay as there are with so many holiday rental websites these days.
"The Holidirect way is simple, and we intend it to stay that way!"
Holidirect.com has been developed from the ground up, PC and mobile friendly, with the future ability to adapt and grow. The infrastructure of the site is constantly being upgraded to provide the functionality, performance and features that clients want from a holiday property rental site, and the two Sues are currently investing heavily in the SEO optimisation, FB marketing and advertising to gain maximum exposure and visibility in the shortest time possible.
"It takes time to get noticed and trusted, but we're working hard to get Holidirect 'out there'! We have already achieved great results considering the site is just 14 days old today (July15th 2016). To date we've had more than 150,000 hits on the site, and almost 21,000 views on our Facebook page. There have already been 5 reservation requests that we aware of, it's impossible to track when owners deal with the enquiries directly, but we are off to a really promising start...the world is the limit!!"
