Owners Direct prices?

Hi,

Are the prices quoted on Owners Direct website per person or per stay?

Just starting to look and needing to know budget wise what I can look for!!

Some are in £ others €, some nights, others weeks - v confusing!

Obv I know I'd have to contact owners for more specific but just wanted a general idea.

Thanks :)

The prices should be per stay. Ones in euros are foreign - based owners, meaning you have no comeback in the Uk small claims court should anything go wrong. We always book with UK based owners and not with agents or companies. Most should quote per week.

Thanks! That makes so much sense :)

So I should just stick with the £ ones in general? Even though there's only 2 of us, they won't charge under occupancy like hotels?

Are they the best website for villas?

Undecided on hotels so thought I'd add villas into the equation to make things even more difficult :D

I would stick with the £ ones, personally! They should charge no more then the quoted price, but I would ask for a discount for just a couple when you email the owner. This often is successful in our experience!

You could also try holidaylettings, lanzarote breaks and holiday-rentals websites, but be careful as some properties are with agents and rental companies - even on 'owners direct'! Good luck!

We've rented a few places from Owners irect and haven't had any problems at all. We have rented in France, Spain, Italy and Montenegro with both British and foreign owns. Build up a rapport with the owner and ensure the telephone line they give you is a landline. We always avoid agencies and pay a deposit of around 20% and the rest when we arrive. Not had any problems at all.

We normally pay a deposit and the balance around 8 weeks before departure, as we only book with UK based owners.

Thanks!

I've had 4 replied tonight and some very impressive responses and prices!

A lot less than booking a package holiday so now it's just decision time!!

Waiting for another few to reply but so far my favourite is in Atalaya Complex :)
