Listing of Advertisement
We will list your advertisement (i) (in the case of a caravan for sale) as an advertisement by a business on the “static caravans for sale’’ tab of the relevant holiday park listed on the website or (ii) (in the case of a caravan park) as a caravan park on the relevant county page of the website. You confirm that your transaction is a bona fide advertisement by a business for a static caravan for sale or for a caravan park (as the case may be).
Duration of Listing
We will list your advertisement on the www.myholidaycaravan.co.uk website until you request the removal of the advertisement or until we remove the advertisement in one of the circumstances below.
We may email you (to the e-mail address which you have registered with us) from time to time in order to check that you still wish to advertise your caravan park. We will withdraw your advertisement if you respond by requesting us to do so. We may withdraw your advertisement if you fail to respond to such an email within seven (7) days of the date of the e-mail. It is your responsibility to ensure that you keep the e-mail address which you have registered with us up to date. You are at all times responsible for any e-mails sent to us from your registered e-mail address.
In respect of an advertisement for a caravan park, you can request the cancellation of the listing of your advertisement at any time by sending us an e-mail to email@example.com.After you have sent this request we will cease to take any further payment which falls due on or after the seventh day after you make the request (the day after you make the request counting as the first day). After you have made this request we will remove your advertisement as soon as practicable and normally on or before the seventh day after you make the request.
We reserve the right to remove the advertisement forthwith where you breach this Agreement. Where we do so we shall notify you accordingly and cancel any future payments which you are scheduled to make.
We reserve the right to withdraw your advertisement for any reason by giving not less than seven (7) days’ notice so to do by email.
In no circumstances will you be entitled to a refund of monies where we remove or withdraw your advertisement.
Business advertisements (those for commercial gain) are charged at £149.00 (inclusive of VAT) per advertisement of a caravan park per monthly period for a listing. In this Agreement “monthly period” means a period of every 31 days. Accordingly, there are 11.7742 “monthly periods” in a non-leap year of 365 days.
Up to two hundred and fifty (250) caravans can be listed [at any one time] as “for sale” under the listing in the website of a caravan park. A caravan cannot be listed for sale except by reference to a caravan park that is listed on the website.
We permit you to send us a feed of your caravans which are to be advertised for sale (in an .xml format specified by us) on a daily basis. This enables us to automatically integrate those caravans on the relevant page of the website.
If you cancel an advertisement for a caravan park and subsequently want to re-list the advertisement for that caravan park on our website, we will not give you any credit for any outstanding period for which you may have previously paid for the advertisement to be listed.

You may feature only one caravan park in each advertisement and up to two hundred and fifty (250) caravans can be listed at any one time as “for sale” under the listing in the website of a caravan park. A caravan cannot be listed for sale except by reference to a caravan park that is listed on the website.
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. Where your advertisement relates to a caravan, we endeavour to do so within 72 hours of your request for listing. Where your advertisement relates to a caravan park, we usually need to contact you and seek further information, we will endeavour to initiate contact with you within 72 hours of your request for listing. However time is not of the essence for these or any other obligations 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.
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 by a business for a static caravan for sale or for a caravan park (as the case may be).
No contract will exist between you and us until your request to list an advertisement has been accepted by us.
