Processing your advertisement
You can upload and pay for your advertisement online simply click here.
You may feature only one caravan in each advertisement.
When you place your request for a listing you are making a contractual offer to us. We may take payment from you at that time, or any subsequent time, but the taking of that payment (and the formation of any contract) is subject to the condition precedent of our accepting your advertisement for listing. After we have received your offer, (i.e. after we have received your request for a listing) we will send you an acknowledgment of receipt by e-mail.
We will then advise you by email as to whether or not we are able to accept your advertisement. We endeavour to do so within 72 hours of your request for listing, however time is not of the essence for this obligation or any other obligation that we have pursuant to this contract. Where we accept your advertisement, we will send you a confirmation email with your account details and a link to the live advertisement. The sending of that e-mail by us is the acceptance of your offer.
Where the holiday park at which your caravan is situated or otherwise associated with is not currently listed on our website, a delay may ensue before we are able to notify you whether or not we can accept your advertisement. We always endeavour to list your caravan even if it is at a caravan park not already listed by us, however we do not guarantee that we will do so.
We are not bound to accept any advertisement you send us. If we do not accept your advertisement, we shall notify you accordingly and refund any payment you may have made. Without limitation, we may reject your advertisement if we believe that your advertisement is not a bona fide advertisement for a static caravan for sale by a consumer or is not otherwise in accordance with the provisions of this contract.
No contract will exist between you and us until your request to list an advertisement has been accepted by us.
