Taking care of the renting out of your holiday home can be a nice hobby, but will also take a lot of work. Placing expensive ad's, answering inconvenient phone calls and replying to e-mails which usually don’t end in bookings. You have to maintain your website and make it easy to find on search engines. You have a lot of paperwork, bookkeeping and are not always sure of payment…
Thankfully this can all be different. Read more
Topic Travel is a professional tour operator that values quality and care. Founded in 1990, we specialize in the renting out of quality holiday homes in France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, the Czech republic and Croatia.
We deal directly with the client without the expensive intervention of travel agencies or other third parties. Naturally we are a member of ANVR and SGR. (The national association of travel agencies and the foundation of fund guarantees of the Netherlands.)
Renting your holiday home is our profession. We can get better results and what's more, we can do this also outside of the peak season!
The internet is our main sales point. Therefore our website excels in search options and information.
With each home we give a detailed and honest description with several pictures. In this way the client knows exactly what to expect, and a satisfied client will keep the house in good condition.
No internet? Our clients can order our full-colour magazine for free and make their reservations by phone.
Following a reservation the client receives a confirmation by post, together with tourist and practical information on the surrounding area of the chosen holiday home, as well as an itinerary and detailed Michelin route maps.
What you don’t see upfront are our marketing activities.
Thanks to our efforts, Topic Travel ends up in the top of well known search engines on the internet. We also have special recruiting promotions to expand our e-mail database with potential clients for direct marketing purposes. Pre-selected groups will receive our brochure for free.
Traditional media still play a part in our marketing strategy. Topic Travel places ad's in national newspapers and plays commercials on radio and TV.
Another surprise might be our preparations.
All homes will be visited by your own contact person and a staff member of our reservations department every year. This is not only to inspect the homes and to get to know our product better but also to get to know you. We value our relationships with our owners. Every year we will discuss with our owners the questionnaires returned by the clients with their compliments and points for improvement.
The whole year through we will keep you informed on reservations. Before the client arrives you will already have received payment. To avoid disappointments with sudden cancellations we have an interesting arrangement.
The criteria we use to include a home in our programme vary by country and region. A home is not simply a number and we do not want to pre-judge. Evidently its quality is of importance. This for us means a nice interior and a quiet location. Your holiday home must be available for a minimum of 10 weeks per year.
