List your Vacation Rental for Free for 3 Months
is a free vacation rentals site,
specialising in "Vacation Rentals for Active Travelers"
and has attracted a lot of attention both from vacation
rental owners and renters interested who want some
"adventure" in their vacations.
Adventure Pads was developed by a group of vacation
rental owners with sports addictions and provides lots
of specialist functionality to cater to active travelers.
For example, Adventure Pads search function is organised
by activity. You can select whether you want to view
vacation rentals that facilitate Climbing, Kite
Boarding, Mountain Biking, Scuba Diving, Ski and
Snowboarding, Surfing and Whitewater activities.
Vacation rental owners and renters can post "travel
journals" (you must be registered on the site to post a
journal) which is a novel way of highlighting the
adventure possibilities of the location of your vacation
Signing up with Adventure Pads is a simple process and
follows the usual process of entering information about
your vacation rental. Although you are asked about
activities in your location, there is no requirement
that any special activities are available.
Search functionality on the site is fairly basic,
although the map functionality is helpful. You can
either search the regular listings, browse the travel
journals or search the "Specials" listed on the site.
(However, it is not clear how these Specials are set
up:there does not seem to be anywhere in the Owner's
section to allow you to add a "Special").
Adventure Pads is a small, specialist vacation
rentals site, with less than 1000 vacation rental
properties listed. As the site is free, there is no
downside to listing with them, but if you visitors are
likely to be interested in adventure vacations,
Adventure Pads may help attract these type of renters.
