The staycation's going nowhere ... as its popularity goes global
Domegos.co.uk launches beta website to feed ‘hungry’ staycationers
LONDON, June 29th 2009 // -- The credit crunch busting staycation is not a passing fad – that’s the evidence from one of the UK’s leading holiday home search websites.
Domegos.co.uk, the global holiday home website, says the number of enquiries from holidaymakers who are shunning foreign shores to take a summer break in their own country has proportionally increased by 21% in the past six months.
Dennis Klett, co-founder and director of Domegos.co.uk, says: “Consumer fear of the recession and reluctance to spend has pushed a lot of holidaymakers towards the staycation – not just in the UK, but throughout Europe and beyond.”
In turn, this trend has resulted in an increased number of people looking to jump on the staycation bandwagon by renting out their second homes for the first time.
Dennis Klett comments: “We have seen a 157% jump in new properties listed on the site, largely from owners who are new to the holiday home market. Many have owned a second property for years but have been content to hand the keys to family and friends or let it sit empty – now they are realising that they can put it to good use and earn some extra money while times are tight.”
The new and improved recession-friendly website charges neither a yearly subscription fee nor a commission, providing a cost-free way for homeowners to market their property around the world. One page is assigned per property, comprising 17+ photos, an interactive Google map and more, making the website an essential part of any homeowner’s online marketing mix. All properties are promoted in the UK and nine other countries in five different languages.
Domegos.co.uk also offers a market-leading website creation service, enabling homeowners to create their own personal and stand-alone website for their holiday home with just one click of the mouse - for just £3 a month. The service is the cheapest, quickest and easiest way to set up a professional website and offers an unrivalled level of customisation tools.
