Isnt it a thril!! I'm doing something wrong......had two inquiries but neither of them rang back. Got quite giddy about it I must admit....think my photos are not very good though tbh because my prices are very competitive.

directholiday homes as well as another link elsewhere. But tbh i think I could do worse than resorting to old fashioned advertising as well! Spoke to someone recently who has a really good response from a card in her local post office!!

i have advertised our caravan on facebook and have got 11 bookings from it,
i love free advertising,
ive also put a offer on the page that if someone who has booked refers someone and they book and pay a deposit the referer gets 30 off their booking price and its working really well, i also put one listing on ebay and get a few bookings through that

Yes 11 people have paid a deposit, 3 for summer holidays, 1 for may half term, 2 for easter and the other 5 for 7 and 4 night breaks between april and july

yes its our rental, we dont rent out our own van as we like to leave all our stuff in it but we do let close family use it now and again lol

on facebook i searched for selling pages for example buy sell swap or items for sale, i made a new profile with my caravans name and go onto these selling pages and just put " Static caravan holidays starting at 230 for 7 nights in south devon" and people have been sending me messages,
also as the new profile is locked people have to add me as a friend so it show on their profile and their friends can see it too !


when i next go down i will have to take some pics of our van as i dont have any

That also means you get a bit of an insight into their profiles? At least you can see who's gonna be renting it ... Or maybe not! Lol
