Firstly, Gower Holidays is NOT an agency.  We take no commission on bookings, we simply charge a yearly fixed fee for advertising.

We offer two different options for advertising:

EITHER Stage 1a leading to Stage 1b OR Stage 1a leading to Stage 2.  We’ll look briefly at these options below:

Stage 1a leading to Stage 1b

Stage 1a  is a landscape orientation, exterior photograph and up to 270 characters (including spaces and punctuation) LEADING TO

 Stage 1b – a further 480 characters (including spaces and punctuation) to expand upon the description of your property.

+ a feature photo at the top of the page which can be interior or exterior

+ your property name and contact details below and the ‘Share’ symbol to easily enable the page to be shared.

+ Details of any ‘Special Offer’ which you choose to add.

+ More details which are also search criteria are shown on the right.

+ a link to your website ( if you have one)

+ the option of keeping your vacancies and/or prices in the system (illustrated in the next section under “Prices and Availability”)

+ a contact form along with your phone details

Every advert has a Stage 1a advert and examples of these can be seen on the accommodation pages.   An example of a Stage 1b advert can be found here.


Stage 1a leading to Stage 2

Stage 1a – a landscape orientation, exterior photograph and up to 270 characters (including spaces and punctuation) LEADING TO…

Stage 2 – which gives really comprehensive coverage of your property.

 It includes:

  • a feature header photo of the exterior or interior of the property.
  • your property name and contact details below and the ‘Share’ symbol to easily enable the page to be shared.
  • as much textual write up as you like; giving you plenty of room to expand.
  • If you add a Special Offer onto the system, the details will appear on this page, as well as the Stage 1 advert being marked as a Special offer and the advert appearing in a list of Special Offers accessed from the main menu.
  • More details which are also search criteria are shown on the right.
  • up to eight reviews from your guestbook (with attributions if you prefer) to inspire customer confidence.

  • a gallery of up to 20 photos showcasing your property and perhaps the surrounding the area
  • all the photos expand from thumbnails to larger photos within the gallery

  • a video of your property…

People love to be able to walk around inside a property and imagine staying there themselves. Include a video guiding them around and if you’re good on narration, then you can point out all the features that will clinch the booking.

  • a Google map showing your exact location…

So that your potential clients know exactly where you are in relation to the beach, the pub or whatever else they’re looking for, include your property on a Google map. Every property has a unique selling point for location. What’s yours?

  • the option to easily store your vacancies and bookings
  • the option to list your prices in a flexible way, either week by week or season by season

All on one page… your calendar showing your vacancies and bookings and your price list.

Price comments are on there too.  e.g. dogs at £15 per dog per week.

It is essential now, more than ever to display your prices.

Many people looking disregard a property that asks them to ‘enquire for further information’.

The price list has up to 3 columns and you can add as many rows as you want. This allows for flexibility across accommodation providers. You select your own column headings and the details within the rows (not just prices, you can put explanatory text in there too).

You can display a week by week price list or a low, mid and high season pricelist or show how much it costs for 7 days or 3 days etc. etc.

The columns will arrange themselves tidily on the screen.

  • a contact form along with your phone details

Enquiries are directed to you through an enquiry form, which captures the information that you need to progress the enquiry.

  • links to your social media sites

If you’re on social media, tell the people who are looking at your advert and encourage them to follow you.

Every advert has a Stage 1a advert and examples of these can be seen on the accommodation pages. An example of a Stage 2 advert can be found here


Finally Stage 3 is web address registration and redirection.  

Make the most of your Stage 2 advert by purchasing a web address and pointing it at your Stage 2 advert.

This shortened web address is perfect to make the most of your Stage 2 advert.  It can be quoted in correspondence, within adverts, on business cards and given to phone enquirers, directing them to the one place where they can find much more information about your property.
