    I've used TA several times for holiday rentals and had no trouble. They were extremely helpful and understanding when I had to cancel a holiday at short notice due to the sudden death of my dad.

    The owner doesn't get the money until you have been in the place 24 hours - so you have time to complain if any issues.

    Remember you are paying for that privilege - my gite is £750 for a week coming direct to me - but TA will charge you closer to £900.
