  1. Hi

    Firstly, I must say congratulations to England on beating Australia for the 6th time in a row…and all a bit sad for Australians, who I think will be suffering for some time yet!

    It’s really timely, and came as a surprise, to read your article about renting out your holiday home – what a great idea! Thanks for the suggestion. It’s an idea that traverses more than the Rugby World Cup.

    I was just wondering if it’s possible to rent out your family home, or does this specifically have to be a holiday home? I was thinking that most people’s main home would attract higher accommodation charges than their holiday home, so they might want to avoid the crowds, go to their holiday home and fund some of their holiday by renting out the family home.

    Thanks,

    David

    • Yeah Australia has been going through a bad patch for a while now. Hopefully, they’ll recover in time for the world cup.

      You can definitely rent out your family home. There are different types of accommodation and arrangements made available to travellers. You just choose the kind that your property is suitable for, indicate the available dates, and you’re ready to start welcoming visitors!

      Though you will be insured, just lock away the family silver if it’s your family home you want to rent out to holidaymakers. Your booking agent will be able to give you a fair estimation of the going rate based on your location and property type.

  2. Great information you have here for me. Thanks for enlightening me. My wife and I live on a farm and we neighbor wildlife conservancies. I guess holiday makers interested in exploring the wild here might want to make use of our farm house and visitors cottage alike. Considering that the hotels around are very expensive, I can have my facility available at a reasonable price while we are traveled to the city to be with my folks for some days. I will list once I have ascertained our itinerary.

    Best regards

    • Exactly, Victor. The global holiday makers now are interested in all sorts of accommodation. From the sounds of it, they would be getting a ‘commune with nature’ experience if they stayed with you. That’s a niche market that you should capitalise on; making use of your vacant farm when you’re away.

      The beauty about Booking.com listing is that you can put your property up when available and take it off when you’re using it. You determine when to rent out your place.

      I support their program because I’m one of those who use their accommodation offers heavily and love the different types of accommodation available to me when holidaying.

  3. I love this idea, I like it since I saw the ‘The Holiday’ movie. I would really do a change in a warm place, it’s a perfect time. And I agree, the culture diversity is a great opportunity to learn new things. 

    Which trustworthy platform do you recommend?

    To list your property, are there any prerequisites, restrictions? And about the contract, is there any legal form?

    • As the link indicates, the platform I find trustworthy is Booking.com.

      Their registration process is very straightforward:

      – You sign up
      – They double check your details
      – You get access to your property dashboard
      – You can update your calendar, prices and everything else
      – When you’re ready, you set your property live!

      Depending on the country where your property is, any legal requirement will be discussed confidentially with you after you register and when they’re reviewing your property for holidaymaker suitability.
