The start of the 2017 holiday season is fast approaching, and in preparation for this we require all owners who advertise on our website to get Verified Status. We pride ourselves in taking every precaution we can to ensure that all listings on the LowCostCaravans.com website are genuine, and a part of this is validating our owners details.
We have all heard stories of guests being scammed by fake owners, who advertise on other websites and bidding platforms but don't actually own the caravan they list. These sites do not regulate or validate those listings, and that is where LowCostCaravans is different. Although we can never rule it out completely, we will take steps to minimise rogue listings on our website and we will even check an owners details with the holiday park if we feel there is cause for concern. Our owners understand this and are happy with the steps we take to validate their information. After all, genuine owners have nothing to fear and would rather a guest be 100% confident in the listing details than worry. Especially when websites like ours let guests book direct with the owner.
Guests can see if an owner has Verified Status from their listing, and those owners who do not have this status may still be going through the validation process. As this is a fundamental change to our websites terms and conditions - we are giving owners a little time to provide the information required to validate their listing. As a guest you can always take precautions yourself by requesting this information from the owner at the time of booking. Our handy FAQs will explain what steps to take.
I hope you all have a fantastic 2017, and remember you can share or website or owners listings through social media.
