Also a frequently asked question:
Do you need your own website?
One does, the other doesn’t. In the context of independence, I would always advise to have at least your own domain with E-mail and to publish a page with the basis of your home there.
An availability calendar is of course even better. So that your regular guests, your friends and family do not pay any commission. But consumers are also very handy these days, if they find your placement on a booking website, they regularly go online to search for name and photo whether it is possible to book directly with the owner.
So in most cases the answer is: yes
At SoPressed – initiator of this platform – you can also have a website made or – for many even more fun: learn to make it yourself. An offer for holiday home owners coming soon.
