Why leave a review?
We all know as a holiday let owner how difficult it is to be left a review from guests. ListDirect is free, I hope as owners you would take a few minutes to leave a review. We need your help to grow our book direct community.
Feel free as time goes on to leave multiple reviews as you experience new features on the website.

It’s like a dating agency, only for holidays!
I am excited to be part of this refreshing new ‘dating agency’ approach for holiday seekers and small holiday home owners – allowing them to find each other without paying another organisation a large overhead for the privilege! Directing direct traffic to a small website is difficult due to the sheer number of big players in the market, so I’m pleased that ListDirect will increase my visibility to potential clients looking to holiday in south west France.
I had my first booking today, Thank you ListDirect
Thank you List Direct – I had my first booking today after sharing your link on my Facebook page and asking my friends to like and share.
I hadn’t realised that there was a messaging service included with ListDirect, this notified me that I had an enquiry, and enabled me to exchange messages directly with the client prior to her booking, I’m pretty sure that having a ‘platform’ behind my advert increased her peace of mind that I am a genuine owner.
The booking was for a week in July and she saved €791 by booking with me directly through ListDirect. That’s a whopping 32% saving over what a client would pay using my usual online travel agent!
It really is a no brainer people!
Fabulous new site to book direct with the owner.
Very easy site to advertise holiday rentals Why should your clients pay extra to the big organisations when they can book direct at NO additional cost Why should those same organisations take control of your booking and payment procedures and then hold onto YOUR MONEY for weeks Use LISTDIRECT!
Test Account – ListDirect
Would you recommend ListDirect to other owners to advertise their holiday rental accommodation? Yes. Was the sign up process quick and easy to follow? Yes. Love the concept of the site, much needed and great way for owners and guests to interact! Find it easy to navigate around and like the way you use the big pictures. Only big suggestion is that perhaps you ask for some sort of proof of ownership from owners to avoid scammers as I have seen on other Facebook pages. ListDirect’s Reply — Owner verification is set up on the website. We are currently looking at the best way to collect this data from owners. Watch this space!
Love how I could help a guest I could not accommodate
We could not accommodate an enquiry for our holiday let. We passed on www.ListDirect.co.uk along with the links to both Facebook groups. The holiday seeker booked another owners accommodation off ListDirect, thanked us for the details. Great concept to have one central place to refer enquiries. Owners receive a direct booking, holiday seekers save money booking accommodation at a direct rate. I have now saved the message as a template now to pass on to future enquiries.
Book Direct Ethos and Fantastic Helpful Community!
Since joining ListDirect, I’m certain that being a verified owner has helped significantly with website views rising and enquiries/bookings coming in. And I can prove it! It really is like a helpful community, with owners who have had enquiries they cannot fulfil also passing details on within the site to help other owners, in turn helping our guests. With no fees at the moment, it really is a win win situation to list your accommodation here. The Book Direct ethos is paramount. Can’t fault it!
Slick operation, great customer support!
We have very recently joined ListDirect. We have found the support videos very informative and educational. I feel much more aware now, how the big search engines work and how to adjust my website to be more “visible”. We have amended the way our rental is marketed as a result. The sign up process is simple. The communication and support from the ListDirect team has been first class. Hopefully we will see results soon.

Help us all get direct bookings
I signed up the listDirect and would recommend other owners to do too. I can understand if we all promote our #book direct website we will only reach and a small proportion of people, as our property will not suit everyone. If we all promote Listdirect we will all get more direct bookings as the holiday seeker can look for a property that suits their requirements. A one stop shop for booking direct.
Deal Direct, everyone benefits
We gave up on Owners Direct years ago after they were taken over. The big portals add no value and simply leech money from both sides on any rental booked using their platforms. We love the fact that with List Direct we can engage with prospective holidaymakers at the beginning of the booking process and have more control.
All for one and one for all!
What can I say?! ListDirect is a very supportive community of holiday let owners who all work together to promote their properties. Ideas are shared and help given with the sole aim we all get as many bookings as possible without paying the extortionate commission fees of the OTAs and thereby able to pass on the savings to the customer. Having now received a direct booking myself I can confirm it works and in time we will all find the bookings will come rolling in!
Save yourself 23%
23% per night one website charges my guests, ListDirect is Free for you! Did you know you are charged? Not many people realise when they see our property on well know booking sites, they paid a lot more! Booking sites add on a percentage, that our guests pay without relising as the booking site builds into the cost they advertise. What you pay when you book though the majority of booking sites… our nightly fee + % booking site fee. When you book direct you just pay our nightly fee. ListDirect verifies owners so you know you are booking with the genuine owner. You pay no extra fees on top of our nightly fee.
Win-Win for Owners and Holiday Renters Alike
Great new, easy to use holiday listing site with great customer service. Travellers can book verified properties directly with confidence here, with direct owner contact and no extra traveller booking fees. Thanks to ListDirect, owners benefit from greater visibility on the internet market: by signing up with ListDirect, our Google My Business Page views have gone up from 1.5K to 2.3K views in a week!
A great new alternative website
Having been in the business for over 20 years I was a bit skeptical about trying a new FREE website. Very slowly over the last 5 years AirBnb changed the business model that we have all been successfully working with for years with all the other OTA’S all following suit, being greedy, double dipping and taking away the owners rights/control. I’m so glad I did sign up , I posted my link on FB and had an enquiry for the whole month of March! They booked and saved a whopping £400!
ListDirect is an invaluable link between host and guest helping to ensure that both parties get the best value from each booking. Most online booking sites take a large percentage as commission from the host and some also charge an agency fee to the guest. – By booking with your host directly through ListDirect you can make major savings on the total cost of your break. It genuinely must be worth a look. Having listed on ListDirect it is great to have such good support.
New Account – Booking
We are new subscribers to ListDirect and are delighted with how easy and simply it was to register the details of our lovely coastal cottage between Tenby and Pembroke. It is great that we have secured a letting so quickly. Because we were able to offer a discount for no commission fees we have a bonus early letting in February.
Would you recommend ListDirect to other owners to advertise their holiday rental accommodation? YES I would recommend. Was the sign up process quick and easy to follow? YES very easy. 5 out 5 for good customer service
So many benefits for everyone!
This site is easy to use for owners and renters. It deserves to become a roaring success. Such a lovely clear site to use. Thank you
First booking – easy!
We’ve just received our first booking for a week in peak season (August). It went through very smoothly and we’re very happy indeed!
The whole process of listing our property was really easy and we’ve had no issues at all.
Highly recommend and love this concept that helps both owners and guests save money!
What a fabulous company to deal with.
ListDirect – Test account
Would you recommend ListDirect to other owners to advertise their holiday rental accommodation? Yes. Was the sign up process quick and easy to follow? Yes. ListDirect is a great way for owners to advertise their holiday homes without having to pay the ever increasing service fees that other platforms charge. ListDirect allows the owner to stay in charge of their listing price, the amount you charge is the amount you receive.
The best one stop shop platform!
I can not praise the website and creator enough. At last a company where you can communicate with the owner. She has created what I can only describe the best platform I have ever come across. Everything has the owners and guest in mind! So easy to use , extremely user friendly! So glad to part of the start, of what I can see, a website that will soon dominate direct bookings for owners. If you are thinking of joining – I don’t know what you are waiting for. What do you have to lose??
Fighting Goliath…help for guests and owners!!!!!
Since the “bomb” hit me last summer when the former website was emerging, I have been on the look out for websites as ListDirect. For me the direct contact with clients from the beginning has given us as owners control and for our guests a personal relation which is highly appreciated. I have through my 20 years of renting been able to deal with this as I want without “a company” taking over everything (helping as they put it) and telling me what I HAVE to do. This has saved renters €661!!!!!!!
ListDirect, test account
Was the sign up process quick and easy to follow? Yes. Clear instructions and quick response when I had questions.
Wow! Can’t believe how quickly we got bookings!
Joined ListDirect 12th May…and by 15th May I had 3 bookings from sharing my link online! I think it gives potential bookings that bit of extra validation when using the ListDirect link rather than just my own Facebook page, extremely happy! Would 100% recommend!
Best way to book!
ListDirect is a great website for holidaymakers and owners. Allowing guests to find and book directly with a holiday home owner makes sure they are getting the best deals by not having to pay the huge commission that booking websites charge. It’s great for owners too as we are able to get to know our guests beforehand and offer a more personalised service. Everyone should be using this site!
Booking – Win : Win
Probably all Online Travel Agents (OTAs) charge commission either the guest or host – or often both.
Booking direct via ListDirect gives guests the security that the host has been verified, the chance for better communication beforehand, and simple clear pricing with no hidden extras
By booking direct these fees are avoided on both sides – Win : WIn
In order to help grow our community we need owners to hear from other owners.
