Frequently Asked Questions
Why Use Shortbreaks.com to Make Your Trip?
Renting directly from holiday home owners typically gives you much more accommodation space for your money compared with booking hotel rooms or renting through traditional holiday agents. This is because Shortbreaks.com does not charge any commission on holiday property bookings to either travellers or property owners.
Another frequent advantage to renting directly from property owners is the benefit of staying in a privately cared for home. Shortbreaks.com self-catering properties generally contain many of the extras and comforts associated with a ‘home-from-home’ experience, such as well equipped kitchens, comfortable and pleasing furnishings, books, games and other useful facilities, not found in hotels or in properties owned by an impersonal corporation. In fact, exploring the individuality of your privately rented holiday home is just another part of the adventure of a Shortbreaks.com holiday.
When booking directly with the property owner you will build a relationship with someone who can share their authentic, local knowledge. Owners can advise you on a whole host of useful details including the best restaurants, the most convenient travel options and what trips are most worthwhile in meeting your interests. There is nothing like first hand, up-to-date, local knowledge to ensure you get the most out of your stay.
Many of the holiday homes advertised by private owners are as unique and individual as you are, offering places with character and interest, ranging from classically traditional to the wonderfully unusual. The power of our databases and search systems will help you quickly find the perfect trip just right for you.
How do I make a holiday booking using Shortbreaks.com?
All bookings are made directly with property owners. Shortbreaks.com is not involved with actual bookings. If you have any problems concerning your holiday rental, please contact the holiday property owner direct.
How do I contact a property owner?
On the full advertisement page of your chosen holiday property you will see the ''Contact Owner' button. Click on the button and then fill in the contact form. Your message will immediately be forwarded to the owner. Some property owners may chose to display their actual contact details, allowing you to contact them directly by telephone or email.
