- Promotion: We make sure your property is featured on the entire holiday rental market and introduced to hundreds of thousands of international guests on our own website, which receives millions of visitors each month. We use multiple other channels too: from traditional travel agencies to online portals such as Booking.com, Homeaway and Airbnb.

Your income will depend on a wide variety of factors such as the location, standard and facilities inside and outside your holiday home. The number of weeks you make your property available is also important for your rental income.
We will prepare a realistic budget based on the different holiday home facilities and your wishes for the rental period. We can also advice you on how you can make your holiday home even more competitive on the rental market.
You will be paid through bank transfer directly into your chosen account. Payment will be done at the beginning of the month in which your guest arrives. We will pay the full rental price even if the guest has not arrived yet, subject to terms and conditions.
The necessary time varies from country to country dependent on processing time. If the booking is last minute, you will receive payment in the following month.
If a guest cancels a confirmed booking within a defined number of days prior to their scheduled arrival, we will cover between 80% and a 100% of the lost rental price. The number of days before arrival and coverage percentage is dependent on the country.
Based on our experience and extensive market research, we determine the prices that best suit your particular holiday home. We continuously monitor holiday trends all over the world and use the knowledge and experience we have built over 50 years in the industry to ensure that your holiday home is as competitive as possible – including having the right price balance.
Renting out your holiday home takes up a great deal of time and effort. It requires a lot of administration, finding a suitable price level throughout a rental season to ensure as many bookings as possible at the best price, promoting your holiday home through a number of channels, handling bookings as well as dealing with guest questions and potential issues before, during and after the stay and much more.
If you choose us as your rental partner, we take care of all this. In addition, we make use of our 50 years’ of experience as well as on-going analysis of and insight into the holiday market to ensure that you have the best possible rental experience.
Once the rental agreement is signed, it usually takes three to seven working days before your holiday home is online on our website and can be booked.
It depends on the number of weeks and time of year you have in mind. Please contact us to find out more.
Normally, our rental weeks run from Saturday to Saturday. However, if you wish to offer your guests more flexibility, you can choose specific concepts that allow shorter booking periods and optional arrival dates.
When you enter into a partnership with us, you make an agreement valid for the current and the subsequent year. Afterwards, the agreement is automatically renewed one year at a time. If you wish, you can of course terminate your agreement at the end of each agreement period.
We handle every aspect of marketing your holiday home in numerous languages on our website and with our many booking partners. We take care of photography, and our copywriters make a presentation that, together with high quality images, introduces your holiday home to holidaymakers.
Your holiday home is marketed globally through websites, social media, ads and a network of more than 10,000 booking partners. Therefore, guests from all over the world visit our holiday homes. For example we receive guests from Denmark, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Austria, Croatia, Italy, Spain,
The United Kingdom and many other countries.
As a homeowner with NOVASOL you have access to your own personal homeowner page, where you can follow your rental and see exactly where your guests come from.
You will receive a notification by e-mail, text message or both. You can find details about all your bookings on your personal home page, which you have access to when you rent out your holiday home with us.
Yes, of course. We recommend that you keep your private belongings in a clearly marked and locked room, closet or similar.
It is important to us that you feel at ease when you rent out your holiday home. Therefore, we offer our homeowners a free insurance: The Homeowner Insurance. The insurance covers most damages, over 135 Euros, done to your holiday home and inventory in case your own insurance does not cover.
The Homeowner Insurance covers*:
- coverage of physical damage to the rental house and related movables caused by a NOVASOL guest.
- coverage of lost rental income if the repair of the damage means that you have to cancel existing bookings.
- excess of only 135 Euros. The Homeowner insurance also covers the difference if your own holiday home insurance covers an injury, and your excess is more than 135 Euros.
… and much more!
In addition, with our Minor Damage Concept, we cover the cost of smaller damage of up to 135 Euros. This way, you are well protected against unforeseen damages and expenses in connection with the rental of your holiday home.
* Subject to certain terms and conditions
As a general rule, guests are charged a deposit/advance payment when renting holiday homes with a pool and very large holiday homes. For other holiday homes, we instead offer a concept that we call The Minor Damage Concept.
This means that if a guest accidentally causes a minor damage in your holiday home during his or her stay, we will refund the expenses that may be incurred in connection with repair or purchase of new items with up to 135 Euros per stay*. With the concept we aim to protect you from unforeseen expenses in connection with the rental of your holiday home while at the same time avoiding giving our guests a bad experience by charging compensation for a minor and accidental damage.
The concept serves as a supplement to our Homeowner Insurance, which covers most damage to your holiday home as well as inventory made by a NOVASOL guest in case of damage exceeding 135 Euros if your own insurance does not cover*.
* Subject to certain terms and conditions.
