There are several ways to increase exposure your accommodation property receives. All are completely free.
1. Promote a special
Specials can be displayed, free of charge, on our accommodation specials page which is viewed by hundreds of people each week. On that page, brief details of your special or package are displayed, and more information is then shown within your full page accommodation advertisement under the "nightly rates" section.
Specials can include things like a discounted tariff or extras bundled into the accommodation stay.
Specials must run for a fixed period of time, such as a specific month, season or holiday period, and cannot span a period of more than 4 months.
Once specials expire, we will remove them for you.
One of the advantages with being featured on our specials page is that you will promote your property to people who aren't too fussy about exactly where in Victoria they want to go, but are more interested in looking for a good bargain or package.
To promote your special, simply email the details to infotravelvictoria.com.au and include the exact time period it applies to.
2. Highlight your property on our social media channels
Travel Victoria has a presence on both Facebook and Twitter, with many thousands of people and organisations following us. If you wish to highlight your property through our social media channels, particularly if you have a special offer going or some last minute deals, let us know, and we will run a promotion for free.
3. List your property on the Beach Stays website
Beach Stays is a website which lists only accommodation located within 500 metres walk of the beach or water, It is typically used by people whose primary consideration when planning a beach holiday is the actual location of the accommodation and proximity to the coast.
If your property is no more than 500 metres walk from the coast, then you are entitled to a free listing on Beach Stays.
No maintenance is required for your Beach Stays listing, as it will contain exactly the same wording and photographs as your Travel Victoria listing, although in a different style. Any updates that are made to your Travel Victoria listing will automatically flow through to your Beach Stays listing.
Contact us to activate your Beach Stays listing if it hasn't already been done.
4. List your property on the Dogs On Holidays website
Dogs On Holidays is a website which lists only accommodation that is dog friendly.
If your property has a suitable area outside for pets or permits them to come inside, then you are entitled to a free listing on Dogs On Holidays. Note that properties which require dogs to stay inside an owner's vehicle or caravan at all times are not regarded as being dog friendly.
Your Dogs On Holidays listing is maintenance free as it will contain exactly the same information as your Travel Victoria listing, although in a different style. In addition, there is a special "dog information" section where you can highlight the conditions and features of those staying with dogs. Any updates that are made to your Travel Victoria listing will automatically flow through to your Dogs On Holidays listing. If required, an exception can be applied whereby different photos can be shown within your Dogs On Holidays listing, particularly if you want to emphasise certain dog-friendly features.
There are 4 feature properties listed on the Dogs On Holidays home page. You can highlight your accommodation on the highly visited home for free, subject to availability, as we regularly change the list of properties displayed in order to spread the extra exposure around.
