SearchCottage is a recently launched UK-based search engine focused on the temporary rent of cottages, villas and apartments. Those looking for a summer rental can filter their search by area as well as by number of people or suitability, or they can check out the “Special Offers” to see if any last minute deals are available.
The site is currently available in England, France, Scotland and Wales but will be expanding to include new areas in the near future. The site also offers a lot of tools for owners to help them rent their property quickly and at a good price. Owners must register and pay a 15-Pound fee for listing their property but two-thirds of that money goes straight to AdWords for the marketing of their property. Owners will also like be given virtually unlimited space for photos and text, full control over their property’s ad and no booking fees whatsoever.
SearchCottage.com In Their Own Words
“Search Cottage has been created to help users find quality holiday cottages, apartments and villas, and to help owners easily and effectively promote their holiday cottage or property.”
Why SearchCottage.com It Might Be A Killer
While there are certainly no shortage of other sites out there devoted to the same space, SearchCottage just might become popular due to the fact that they offer owners a superior service at a very reasonable price. If the site attracts enough property owners, then those in search of a rental should be soon to follow.
Some Questions About SearchCottage.com
When will they be expanding to other countries? Spain would seem to be the logical next country to tackle given the huge numbers of Brits who flock there every year. How else do they plan on encouraging more submission to boost the size of their database?
