Creating a property advertHow do I create a new account?
To create a property advert you first need to register as a member. From here you can become an advertiser by selecting 'Advertise a property' and completing your contact details.
From your management page select "Create a new property advert" and complete all the sections. They can be completed in any order and saved to come back to at any time. Information is displayed throughout to assist you. Once your advert is complete and you are happy with it, go to the payment section and select 12 months advertising (Plus 2nd year Free). After payment your advert will be sent to us for approval and publication.
Our upload system is so straightforward and comprehensive that we are sure you will have no trouble uploading your own property. We also have an advert build service at £20 per advert. Please get in touch with us if you would like us to build your advert.
No, only tick the checkboxes that apply to the property you are advertising - these will then appear on your property details and be used in the search.
Your images should be good quality digital images which are downloadable from your computer. For best results they should be landscape and a minimum depth of 400 pixels.
You add your photos by clicking on the Images/Video section in your property overview page, browsing and uploading them. We advise you to upload a few images at a time. You must have at least 4 images in order to publish your advert, but we recommended that you add as many as possible, you are allowed up to 28. You must own the copyright for any pictures you use, or have permission from the owner to use them.
From your property overview page, select 'Preview your advert' at any time.
General questionsI have more than one property, can I link them?
Yes, click on the links section on the property overview and tick the properties you want that advert to link to. These will display in the right hand panel of that property advert. You will need to repeat this procedure for each of your adverts.
No, we only allow one property per advert. If you have more than one property create a separate advert for each one.
Yes, adverts can be customised for hotels, B&B's and guesthouses. The rates panel can be changed to show prices per person per night and we provide sections on the facilities upload for catered accommodation.
As soon as you have completed all sections of your property upload and made a payment if required, your advert will go live within 24 hours subject to approval.
All search listings are returned randomly within the specified criteria.
