Multiple Cottage Listings and Agencies
My Cottage Holiday has always and will remain a free resource for basic standard listings for independent cottage owners which we view as an owner with one or two properties. For owners with multiple units and agencies, there is a small annual charge for listings. The reason for the charges is that there are significant costs for the administration and development of the web site and ensuring its survival as an independent resource for the industry as a whole in the future. Our charges are incredibly small compared to standard advertising directories and other sites, we consider these to be excellent value for money.
Our charges are tiered to reflect the amount of administration time required to authorise the initial listings and do allow for adding multiple images to each cottage listing with full size images, we will discuss and organise this with you directly. My Cottage Holiday is currently investing a significant amount of money in a new site with a vastly improved user experience and marketing.
Charges for 2017
- Listing up to 10 cottages is £15 per cottage per year
- Listing up to 50 cottages is £12 per cottage per year
- Listing more than 50 cottages is £10 per cottage per year
Important Listing Information
Due to the impact of content that has been copied directly from other sites onto My Cottage Holiday in the search engines, no cottages will be made live if their descriptive text is live on other web sites. Cottages will only go live if their descriptive text is unique.
We understand that it is an onerous task to write unique content for each individual cottage and we may be able to write this for you for an agreed cost. We do not particularly like this as a proposition, however, it is forced upon us by the search engines guidelines and this will be strictly adhered to. We can advise on writing copy and help you with this should you require it and are more than happy to discuss this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Large Agencies with Recognised Affiliate Programs
There are no charges for large agencies with affiliate programs through recognised platforms such as Affiliate Window or Affiliate Future that pay a minimum 4% commission per booking. We are more than happy to upload as many cottages as is required, however, you will have to provide the unique text for each cottage. Agencies with internal affiliate systems are welcome to contact us, we will require a reference from at least two third party users of your internal affiliate system. We reserve the right to remove all cottages through affiliates at any point if we suspect that commissions are not being paid correctly.
How to Proceed
As long as you are happy with the above, you can start straight away. Just create an owners account here and you can start uploading your first cottages and inputting your account information. We will invoice you for the relevant payment if required before your cottages go live so if you are happy with our costs, start uploading your cottage details straight away. If you have any problems, need advise or want help creating your listing, just let us know, we are a friendly bunch with many years of experience in the holiday industry and with web site development so we are always willing and able to help.
If you have a large number of cottages, we can automate the upload of content and images and we have significant experience in integrating API's
We do have a featured property service and are more than happy to feature specific cottages in counties and towns, this is a paid for service and discounts are available for agencies looking to feature multiple properties across counties and towns, please contact us if you would like to discuss this further.
