The Benefits of a Holiday Home Website

High Comission Costs on platforms such as Airbnb and HomeAway

Platforms such as Airbnb and HomeAway have quite high commission costs. Having your own Holiday Home website means that the you do not have to pay this commission. Especially when you have guests which know your place and book every year the amount you could save can be quite large. Owning a holiday home website is not exclusive. This means you can have it work alongside your Airbnb and HomeAway as an additional booking platform. You can divert customers to the website while still taking advantage of the publicity your Airbnb and HomeAway listings give you.

Having a website means you can build and grow your business independently of platform websites such as Airbnb and HomeAway. It increases your independence. You no longer need to rely on other platform websites to bring you business, but can take control of it and grow your own client base. It also gives you more control over what people come to stay at your home,

We would require pictures of your home from the outside, of all the individual rooms, the garden, and any other facilities you offer, be it a pool, table tennis or even a hammock.

Before we start the initial design, feel free to send us any designs or elements that you enjoy from other websites so that we can incorporate them into your website. A deposit of typically 10% is also requested at this stage. Once deposit is received a domain name would be chosen. This is the website address, such as www.yourholidayhome.com We would start making an outline design of your website. There is a lot of room for big changes and alterations at this stage. After this stage, there would still be room to make small changes regarding style and colour but major changes may add extra working hours on our part and may be charged. Hence it is important to be satisfied with the initial design and let us know any thoughts at this stage. We then send you the design when the homepage and perhaps one other page are complete and you let us know what changes you would like if there are any to make.

Recurring Cost Extras

Domain name registration

This is offered as an optional extra as many may already own their own domain name. This is an annual charge and price can vary on a number of factors such as the name itself, and if you have a .com, .net, .de or .fr website.

Hosting and Maintenance 

Hosting is an important service as this is what makes the website accessible. The Host is a server (type of computer) that has the website on it and sends people the website when they look for it.

Maintenance is commonly overlooked as many think it is easy to host a website. In fact, it is, and many will prefer to host it themselves. However, when something goes wrong, it can be very difficult and expensive to find out what the problem is in order to fix it. Kugler Design offers Hosting and maintenance, and this can also be purchased at an annual charge of €250.

€15/ per month

We can also write about any topic you choose.
