Vacation Rentals – Pets Welcome – More Free Websites


Part of last weeks article (read it here if you missed it) talked about adding your rental to more and more free listings websites throughout 2015 (updated) and to give you a gentle reminder we are highlighting a few free sites this week.
These sites are a little different as you will see…

These sites are aimed at guests with pets. And there are a lot of potential guests out there with pets. The number of American households alone that now include pets has climbed to 71.1 million. As you can see it’s a huge market. Anyway, if you allow pets you may well benefit from advertising with these sites.

Here’s what they say,
How much does a  listing cost? Zero!  And, PetVR.com is viewed by thousands of pet owners every day. A PetVR listing  includes your contact information, detailed property description, rates, four photos,  list of property amenities, seasonal rates and a link to your website. We realize that the average vacation home owner lists on multiple websites and keeping all the information current is tedious. Thus, we offer a simple listing that will allow vacationers to click directly to your home page or any site you choose.

So, it seems simple and you get a direct link to your own website or your listing on HomeAway or Tripadviser, etc.

It would be silly not to sign up if you allow pets.

I like the look of this site and the search by route facility looks pretty cool too. I really love the fact that the search buttons are labeled “FETCH” – I know, I’m easily pleased!

Anyway it’s free to advertise on this site so if you have a pet friendly outlook sign up soon.

Well first off this is a UK site and it’s not free to advertise on. It’s £45.00 for 12 months for holiday rental accommodation but for the European market it is the only site that I came across. On a design note it doesn’t even show a pet, which is a bit off. Owners only get to show 3 to 8 photos too.

Here’s what they say about themselves,
“Our site is the first place people with pets, who choose to holiday or live within the UK, will search. Whether they are looking for a pet friendly long term home to rent, or are looking for a dog friendly holiday accommodation (UK), they know they will find it here. Pet owners make up over 50% of the UK household population, so advertise with us and extend your reach to over 18 million pet owning households, and that is just in the UK alone.”


Here’s the vacation rental review takeaway

If you offer a pets welcome policy then it would be foolish not to advertise on some or all of these websites.
Potential guests may well start their search for a holiday at one of these as opposed to Homeaway, Flipkey or other leading listings companies.
