To list your property on this site all you need to do is become a member.
Already a member and you've logged in? Great! Just click HERE to start your listing.
We have endeavoured to make the listing procedure as straight forward, but if you should get stuck or are unsure what to do, then simply call or email and we'll help you out. Our listing facility is a function of your personal Control Panel which our system will take you to once you Login. The listing facility is generic for both Rentals and Exchanges, but for a Rental you simply tick the 'For Rental' checkbox under the 'Details' tab. You can also tick a box to indicate whether your property is located near the coast, a city, in the countryside or near a golf course. For example, it may be coastal and near a golf course so simply tick both boxes to come up for the relevant searches that others will make.
For all listings you will be asked to enter details of your property and (if possible) upload photos because pictures do make an enormous difference to how a listing is perceived. You will be able to change the initial details you enter at any time, you simply login to this site using your selected email and password and once logged in you will then be transferred to your personal control panel where you can edit all your details. You can list up to five different properties but for each additional property after your first (which is covered by your initial membership fee), we will charge an additional fee of £15.
Please note: Non-members searching this site for rental properties will see all listings relevant to their search and can make enquiries using the form displayed at the bottom of each search.
Membership entitles you to list your property and also contact any other member who has a property listed. Your personal control panel allows you to edit all details relating to your property including an editing facility that allows you to add an attractive description, formatted as you prefer. You can also choose to receive an email alert whenever someone makes an enquiry about your listing.
If you are listing a rental property then you can manage your listing calendar (individual for each property you list), which shows people when your property is available and at what rate (you may set different rates for different times of the year). When you set your rental rates you can also set your deposit, security deposit and local taxes (if they are to be included). In short, our system allows you to list and manage when, and how, your property is let including the automatic sending of emails to people who make booking enquiries. Need to block out dates for personal use? No problem! Just choose 'Manage Calendar' from your Control Panel Tabs and block out as many dates as you need. These dates will then show up on your property listing as being unavailable.
When a U3A Member lists a property they can tick a box that will include a U3A tag that will show up in all their listing details and the search results that others can see. This means that anyone viewing your property listing is aware that you are a U3A member. This identification means that parties have more in common which we believe 'adds value' to enquiries and instills more confidence in potential renters. Unfortunately, there are many online scam's where rental properties on some sites don't actually exist, or belong to others and the listing is merely a front to gain a payment. 3rdAgeHolidays.com does not want to host such scam listings so please include a land-line contact number in your listing so that we may call to validate a listing if necessary (please note: your personal contact details are not viewable on our web site).
