Yes, son has used it in America and Spain. Lady in the post office had a weekend in a foursome in a flat in Berlin. Son and fiancée have a room in their house in Sydney on airbnb.

Yes - we both advertise on them and have booked a Paris apartment through them

Our ad:

It would make staying in London a bit more interesting I thought and better than a faceless TravelLodge.

Ad updated. If you want to book with us at any time come direct (it's cheaper) or use Brittany Ferries where you'll get a ferry discount code as well.

You know, I never used that discount, due to the unique way my mate runs his life.

Damn and I had earmarked that £20 for a year's worth of wine

Is that all you get on a £750 fair?

We simply get £10 every time anyone uses our code and they get 10% off the cost of the crossing. Now we are also advertising the gite with Brittany Ferries and anyone booking a holiday through the site can get up to 25% off their crossing but we don't get our £10 this way. We still have the 10% code for friends not booking a holiday with us.

Ah, right. That makes sense. Sorry, he booked without consulting me. Ah well.
