From time to time you may want to offer some incentives to maximise your occupancy. All accommodation listings have the opportunity to set up their own special offers. Any listing can have a maximum of two offers running at any one time. Offers will appear both on your listing and under the tab "Exclusive Offers" on our home page. The Exclusive offers tab allows visitors can search through all offers available.
In addition, we highlight those offers running in our marketing and drive traffic to those offers.

Indirect Bookings Service
How it works - Here at Accomadog we receive many booking enquiries from our website enquiry box. Guests who can't find their ideal accommodation or don't have the time to search will fill in our enquiry form with the details of their criteria.

There is a small admin charge for this optional service.

Dog-friendly listings gets you found easier!
Listing on a dedicated website gives you a much greater chance of being found because it's specific to the searcher's needs, rather than only being represented on a general website where the need is not specific.
For example, people searching for dog-friendly accommodation will be more likely to check a website that they know is 100% dog-friendly, than a general website that offers many different things to many different people, though may lack, the range, the doggy info, the specialism.
Business owners stand to gain much more new and return business when found on a dedicated site.
