5 vacation rental listings FREE of charge worth €2,500
Vacation rental owners, property management companies or agents, on registration, are provided by default 5 vacation rental listings FREE of charge worth €2,500, for a complete year and renewable for a further year free of charge subject to our FREE yearly renewal policy .
No commissions or listing fees
Because we don't charge commissions, this permits Vacation rental owners, property management companies or agents to pass on their savings to their guests in way of additional FREE services.
Don't lower nightly rate
We would NOT recommend lowering the nightly rate, through the savings made but to offer freebies to guests, e.g. welcome pack, a free excursion, free transfer etc. The list is long and there is no lack of marketing ideas. In this way, the nightly rate would be the same across vacation listing websites like AirBnB and Booking.com , to name a couple that may also be listing the same vacation rental.
In our powerful Add-on module, you can add any service as optional, mandatory or informative. These services can be, as an idea free of charge for the guest. See Add-ons .
NOTE: Other "free" vacation rental listing websites charge up to €500 per vacation home listing.

wwwdotgotodotmu understands vacation rental owners' needs
Having owned and managed vacation rentals and working with major listing web sites for over 12 years, we always found it frustrating that payments would NOT be released, by some of the vacation rental listing web sites until the guest arrives. The Difference
Generally, listing "free of charge" vacation rentals these are subject to a commission that can reach up to 25% and more. These are the vacation rental websites that will only release funds when guests arrive, under the pretext that they are protecting the guests against fraudulent vacation rental listings. See article: vacation rental SCAMS .

Creating cash flow for Vacation rental owners, property management companies or agents
Vacation rental owners get paid instantly on wwwdotgotodotmu.
Transition from another vacation rental listing website to wwwdotgotodotmu create instant cash flow using "Early Bird" promotions on wwwdotgotodotmu.
As an example, let's assume that the vacation rental's current basic nightly rate is €100. The vacation rental owners, property management companies or agents can set up an "Early Bird" promotion on our web site, offering:
- 20% discounted nightly rate.
- Non-refundable 100% upfront payment for bookings one year in advance and more.
- Value for money.
Vacation rental owners, property management companies or agents would generate substantial cash in hand. (More on this in another article coming soon.)
Instant cash flow to advertise the vacation rental home
As opposed to other vacation rental websites, we offer vacation rental owners an easy solution to ease their cash flow and generate revenue to advertise.
For every €100 you receive 1 year in advance, you use 5% of that revenue to invest and advertise on social media marketing platforms such Facebook and the likes of notwithstanding Google Ads. This marketing strategy, amongst others, worked very well for us on vacation rental listing websites that did not withhold payment, and for that reason we have provided this feature where you are able to apply this strategy in your marketing plan.
Imagine working on other listing websites with "Early Bird" promotions, it would NOT exactly ease cash flow IF payment is ONLY made when the guest arrives.
