    Cheap holiday rentals guide discussion 29th Jun 12 at 1:07 PM

    Hi all, we've written a new Cheap Holiday Rentals guide to help you rent bargain villas, apartments and cottages.

    How did you find the info? If you've done it, how did it go and do you have any other tips you'd add? Have you successfully haggled with the owner? Tell us about your best holidays.

    for your help!

    Save the booking fee and spend on holiday........
    If book directly with the owner you can save the booking fee from holiday rentals websites. You can also haggle with the owner.
    Down load the app from Stay s a v r and you can get the owners details .Why pay a booking fee when you don't need too.
    Spend it on a good meal out.
    Download the app from Stay s a v r .
    Always try to speak with the owner to ensure you are getting the best deal possible. I am an owner and prefer to let the accommodation for less than have it lying empty.
    Some of the websites block the owners details, but if you download the free app you can then view all the details - its magic.

    Must admit I was totally put off renting a holiday cottage in Northumberland, Ownersdirect were adding £70 to booking and the price for rental was really high, next time we looked the rental price was up again.

    Don't think it does the owner any favours when sites do this.
