Owners Direct’s new review facility gives travellers a chance to read personal recommendations from real guests on real holidays

For many people, booking a holiday is one of the largest and most important online purchases they make each year. UK holiday rentals specialists Owners Direct are now making it easier for travellers to make that all important decision on what holiday to choose with the introduction of their new review section.

Owners Direct’s new review facility gives travellers a chance to read personal recommendations from real guests on real holidays they have experienced at one of the 50,000 properties available worldwide through the site. They will get a true feel for what is on offer and feel confident they have made the right choice of holiday accommodation and destination that suits them and their family’s individual requirements.

Angela Southall, Marketing Manager of Owners Direct, said, “With over 500,000 holidaymakers booking via the Owners Direct website every year, we know people love the fantastic variety of properties that are listed and we are delighted that they can now openly share their experiences online with others.”

She added, “It is understandable that holidaymakers want trustworthy, unbiased opinions when choosing their holiday accommodation. A number of people have asked if we can introduce reviews and we like to listen to what our travellers and owners want – we are constantly striving to improve the site and make it as user-friendly and trustworthy as possible.”

Holiday home owner Gillian Chappell who owns a villa in Murcia, Spain, with her husband Philip said she is delighted that Owners Direct has now added a review facility to the site. “As an owner, reviews are helpful as we can see what we are doing right and what could be improved. It will also allow potential guests to find out more about what previous guests thought and that can only be a bonus as it provides third party validation of our villa,” she said.

The review section of the Owners Direct website will be live as from 15th August 2013.
