advertising terms

We only promote holiday rentals accommodation that we are happy to recommend.

With your help we then design a high quality property description and start marketing your property on the Go South France website and other online sources. We will also discuss your booking requirements and any special deals that you may offer to attract more rental income.

When we prepare a property advert, we always ask the Property Owner to thoroughly check the detail, to ensure that it is 100% accurate. This is very important because all the rental agreements we issue for holiday reservations make reference to the online property advert as the definitive record as to the condition of the property and the facilities provided.
