Our new range of Marketing options

In order to achieve more rentals for properties in the current challenging market, we feel it is necessary to invest more in quality and diverse advertising. Time in Spain holiday rentals will always spend a far greater amount on advertising your property than the amount shown for our services. Since there is now far more competition than ever to achieve rentals from the reduced number of visitors to Spain we feel that is imperative to invest more in additional advertising and in a wider selection of countries and languages.

To keep our commission rates at a reasonable level, we have decided to pass on some of this advertising cost to our clients.  

At Time in Spain we believe that to be competitive in a difficult market, we must provide a broad spectrum of properties to the holidaying public (which in turn drives more visitors to our website).  In offering smaller rental properties as well as the larger ones, we are able to offer to the public accommodation that will suit their needs.  Of course, we have to bear in mind the possible returns in achieving rentals in these different types of property and fix the level of expenses vs. income.

Our services and charges are as follows:-

Option 1 - Basic Rental Service (no cost to the owner)

  • We will photograph your property (if no suitable photos are available)
  • Market your property on our website
  • Translate a basic advert for your property into German, French and Spanish and market on our website
  • Market your property through our partner agents across the UK, France, Germany, and Spain
  • Arrange cleaning and laundry through our own professional cleaning company*
  • Hold keys to your property and meet and greet clients
  • Provide all necessary legal rental contracts between us, you and the tenant
  • Hold the refundable security deposit for a week after the tenant's departure to allow time to check for loss or damage
  • Provide you with an owners area log-in on our website where you can add bookings and check your account with us on-line
  • The charge for all of the above is 20% of all rentals that we book on your behalf

* If you decide to use your own cleaners then it is necessary for you to keep them informed of all bookings.

Option 2 - Standard Rental Service ( 200 Euros per year)

In what is now a highly competitive marketplace, particularly in the UK, it is important to have your property marketed as widely as possible which entails using chargeable websites. Our knowledge and expertise of internet marketing means that this option maximises the potential rentals you can achieve through these media. This option includes:-

  • All of the points within the "Basic Rental Option" option
  • We advertise your property on a selection of paid leading holiday websites offering fairly good worldwide coverage
  • A reduction in our charge from 20% to 15% on rentals ( with the exception of bookings achieved through our partner agents)

Option 3 - The Rental Booster Service ( 600 Euros per year)

This option is designed for owners who wish to push their property far harder to encourage the maximum number of rentals possible. Extra effective advertising = extra rentals. We will concentrate additional advertising on numerous websites worldwide maximising exposure in Germany, France, Spain, Ireland and the Netherlands (using their local languages). There is a lot of work involved in setting up adverts on various websites; many of which require maintenance of the availability charts while bookings are taken. This is costly in both set-up time, translation and ongoing adaption to market conditions. It is for this reason that we must charge extra for this service. You will, however, get value for money as we are able to negotiate large disounts with many website portals for bulk advertising. Time in Spain Holidays S.L. will spend a greater amount on advertising your property than this. We will deduct the 600 Euros from the the rental money achieved. Essentially this will only amount to the cost of one or two weeks rental income.

Property Management combined with Holiday Rentals

When clients rent a property for their holiday, there are three things that are important:

  • The property should be exactly as was advertised
  • It should be immaculate
  • Everything within it should function perfectly

While this is obviously common-sense, it does require work. As most owners do not live near their rental property it is impractical for them to attend to the basic maintenance necessary. This could be anything from changing a light-bulb to having a swimming pool leak repaired. In some cases they may have a friend locally who will look after things for them however these informal arrangements often run into difficulties. The other option is to have it professionally managed and maintained between and during rentals ensuring that your holiday clients have a trouble-free visit and are therefore more likely to re-book. And more importantly, to give the word of mouth recommendation to others that money just cannot buy.

We recommend that you sign up to one of our Property Management Service options to benefit from the peace of mind of knowing your property will always be well cared for and look at its best. For owners of holiday rental properties we are giving a 15% discount on the annual cost of our property management services. This service will also include full pre-rental and post-rental checks on the property in addition to the timetabled ones within the service agreement.

Owners not signed up for a Property Management Service can have ad hoc problems resolved for which our time is charged at 15€ per hour or part thereof (including travelling time) plus obviously the cost of labour and materials involved.

Welcome packs - We can provide welcome packs for the tennants. These can be as small as a 5 Euros pack to a full shop.

Towel and linen hire - No problem. We can provide rental linen and towels for all sizes of properties if necessary

General notes - All charges are subject to IVA (VAT). Please note that in order to comply with Spanish law, we will only take on properties with a copy of either your Nota Simple or Escritura or a 20 Euros charge for us to order a copy of your Nota simple over the internet. We will also need to know your NIE number or the NIF/CIF number if the property is owned by a company.
