Holiday France Direct is a website that enables you to book ferries to Europe and accommodation when you get there. There are a very competent service and very customer orientated. The website is easy to use and you get good information about the place you are booking. The owners of the holiday homes get a Brittany Ferries discount code for their guests to use on their ferry ticket. All in all it's a good way to sort out a holiday on the continent.
We can't praise Holiday France Direct highly enough, their service is fantastic, it's consistently professional, helpful and friendly. They are very active on all social media platforms and always re-tweet and like our own tweets so that helps us be seen by a wider audience. They have also sent us the most wonderful guests so if I could give them 10 stars out of 5 I would!
We advertise with Holiday France Direct and several other companies. Holiday France Direct simply walks away with First Place - for the last seven years we have advertised we have received a regular flow of guests - all of which have been good. The advert itself allows you generous space for info on the property and ample photos. If we ever have a query the staff are extremely pleasant to deal with and any query is dealt with immediately. For an extremely reasonable advertising price we also get a generous discount on one return crossing plus a 20% discount for our guests which has proved to be a big incentive. You have complete control of all correspondence, arrangements and payments with your guests - their e-mail address is available at the onset.
The holiday rental market has changed a lot over the last few years with the leading players taking over their competitors, and using their near monopoly position to increase their charges to unsustainable levels, and even charging both holiday makers as well as owners. At the same time the number of bookings from these websites has dropped. Holiday France Direct stands alone in offering an excellent service at a sensible price and has dramatically improved it's performance recently. As a result, holidaymakers pay lower prices while owners receive an improved income. In addition to this, the ferry discounts offered to both guests and owners are very worthwhile. I have no hesitation in saying that Holiday France Direct offers the best holiday rental website around today.
