Shortbreaks.com wants your property!

List your holiday let with us for free! We don’t charge guests booking fees, or Owners commission - we simply allow holidaymakers to book direct with their hosts...

Who are Shortbreaks.com?

We’re a listing site made up of independent, self catering accommodation providers from across the UK and beyond. Offering a collection of Apartments, Barns, Bungalows, Castles, Complexes, Cottages, Farmhouses, Glamping Destinations, Guesthouses, Houses, Lodges, Manor Houses, Railway Carriages, Static Caravans, Studios, Suites, Tree Houses and Villas...

Our approach is simple. We provide a platform for Property Owners, Managers and Agencies to promote their holiday lets. Prospective guests can then get in touch to book direct.

We don’t take a cut

Unlike other holiday accommodation websites and Online Travel Agents (OTA’s), we don’t charge commissions or booking fees. There are no surprises for Guests when they enquire or book. Likewise, Owners need not worry about a greedy middle man taking their share of the pie.

No commissions, no booking fees and no listing fees

Shortbreaks.com is a strong believer of the #bookdirect movement, and don’t agree that those who put in the time and effort to provide a good service should be penalised. We are only too aware of the difficulties that marketing a holiday let can pose, which is why we want to help.
