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.
I'm advertising my cottage on Holiday France Direct. The enquiry process is excellent. I can have direct contact with people renting my cottage. The price per booking represents good value for money. AND my summer season is now full from 31 May to 18 August. Their staff are also very helpful. Excellent service. I'm about to cancel advertising via another site. For people looking for somewhere to stay in France, this is a first class reliable site and service. AND the 20% discount on Brittany Ferries cannot be beaten. We always travel via Brittany Ferries to and from our home in France. The overall experience is great and the dining first class. I'm a very satisfied customer all round. Thanks, Kay Allan
So as to target appropriate visitors, the website is marketed throughout the year by pay per click activity and email campaigns, plus banner advertising at key booking periods.
In addition to our investment in press advertising and insert campaigns in major national newspapers, our PR experts also ensure coverage across national, local and Francophile press.
We utilise our ever-increasing database to communicate regularly to past and potential customers to encourage repeat and new bookings.
I registered my holiday house in Jugon-les-Lacs with Holiday France Direct after an onboard sales presentation on Brittany Ferries. I am thrilled with the response I have had to my Holiday France Direct advert. This summer will be my first season in the holiday rentals business and Le Nid was almost completely booked up by the end of February.
