Moneycorp backs free service to villa rental property owners worldwide Thursday 1 May 2008 PDF Print Moneycorp, the international foreign exchange and payments specialist, is backing a ground-breaking service from IndependentOwners.com that generates tenant enquiries for rental property owners worldwide completely free of charge. Overseas buy-to-let property investors can now boost rental enquiries by utilising a free marketing service available through Moneycorp, the international foreign exchange and payments specialist. Moneycorp has secured the services of IndependentOwners.com to offer all of its customers the opportunity to advertise their property to the worldwide rental market. The move is intended to give Moneycorp’s buy-to-let customers a leg-up in what has become an extremely competitive holiday rental market. Last year Moneycorp facilitated foreign exchange for thousands of clients buying property abroad. The alliance with IndependentOwners.com will allow Moneycorp customers to supply details about their new property to a dedicated online design team and have a website created specifically targeted at marketing their villa or apartment to a global Internet audience. From registration, the customer will receive their website within 28 days, completely free of charge. Marc Morley-Freer, Commercial Director of Private Clients for Moneycorp, said: “Moneycorp is pleased to announce a partnership with IndependentOwners.com. We believe that they offer a genuine value added service to our clients, providing a feature rich and informative website solution for individuals looking to rent out their overseas properties.” The service registers a unique domain name and 11-page website for each property that includes a picture gallery, availability calendar and interactive weather and map pages. Property owners manage real-time web updates themselves from a secure, simple-to-use online administration area that includes facilities for storing and sending rental contracts, creating a customer database and a tool for managing all online advertising. Moneycorp customers are able to take advantage of an exclusive offer that allows them to translate and showcase their website in four extra languages (Spanish, French, German and Italian) free of charge. Each customer also benefits from a complimentary listing at IndependentOwners’ sister website www.villaspeople.com that promotes easy search and access to idyllic holiday home destinations worldwide. “Allying with a powerful brand such as Moneycorp reinforces our commitment to work with the world’s leading overseas property companies and their partners,” said Brett Cahill, Head of Operations for IndependentOwners.com. Moneycorp is the official sponsors of this year’s four A Place in the Sun Live exhibitions at Manchester Central (GMEX), ExCeL, NEC and Earls Court.
