One place people often overlook when looking for cheap holiday park deals are the dozens of holiday homes for rent that are listed on eBay.
Holiday parks, as well as private owners, use eBay to fill empty weeks, or to offer last minute bargain holidays. eBay is so well-used that it’s a great way for them to quickly let you know where they have bargains.
Many holiday caravans aren’t available to rent through the bigger holiday home rental websites, instead they are in private hands, with the owners managing bookings themselves – and the easiest way for them to do this is to list them on ebay. Also, smaller caravan park owners will use ebay as an easy way to get their inventory online without managing ecommerce on their own website. So, if you want to deal direct with private owners and small caravan parks, to get better deals as they’re not paying commissions to lettings agents, I’d recommend it.
When I was a child we always rented caravans from individuals – often farmers with small fields, or caravans on small caravan parks. As the popularity of the smarter mobile home style of caravan park emerged, along came all the other extras such as clubhouses, entertainment and swimming pools – almost compulsory these days!
