Have a look at publicfishingfrance.com they do 3 months free and if you did want to do a year after that it is only 24e and they have anglers coming over all year round.

Holiday lettings .co.uk are part of Trip advisor ,their charges to us are small to the client are horrendous which is why I said I won't use them again .And impossible to contact the client before arrival ,not easy to contact when the client is "lost en route "despite having a GPS.

Firestarter- the review thing is the same as OD though, you could get a bad review on there too.

Have thought about Trip Advisor but although we get genuine 5* reviews on OD, it only takes one bad review on TA to put people off.  Currently the only success I have had is with OD plus a few direct through our own website.  Chez Nous used to be good but now no longer viable.

May look into Trip Advisor again but am very reluctant to fork out the extra for Owners Direct - they recommend the Gold package at over £800 but with having to also add on £120 for an additional property we are only a small business and  just don't have that kind of money for advertising.

You and me both!  Have stopped advertising with OD as it was silly money, last 4 bookings came from twitter (3) and my facebook page with one enquiry that's just come in.  Please share where you are advertising :)

 Have found it but they take 10%!  Also, money not disbursed until 24 hours after check in and then you have to wait from 5-7 days until it reaches your account.

This, for us would work out more expensive.  Out of interest are there any other companies offering advertising with good enquiry rates?  If so, please share as I've not found them!

Where is the free option?  I've just been on to the site and I can't find anything about that?   I suspect that paying a percentage would work out cheaper than forking out for even the lowest rate advertising.
