A record-breaking 70 million holidaymakers visited sunny Spain in 2016. Thousands of home-owners are benefiting from the tourist boom by renting their properties out commission-free with Eventful Stays.

Ongoing security fears have resulted in Tunisia, Egypt and Turkey losing up to 50% of bookings since 2011, resulting in Spain regaining its position as the most visited holiday destination in Europe.

Spain’s tourism sector is preparing itself for even higher numbers in 2017 and now is the perfect time to start renting out your holiday home.

Home owners who rent out 2-bed apartments on the Costa del Sol for example,receive an average of €500-€600 per week (depending on location) in July and August.

A 2 bed villa with pool in the same region can command up to €1,500 per week in the summer months.

After conducting a survey, we realised that holiday home owners were fed up of having to pay holiday rental sites up to 18% commission for renting their properties out in Spain.

With no commission payable at Eventful Stays, all the profit is yours.

The beauty of renting out your apartment, villa or townhouse in Spain’s main holiday regions is that you are likely to have interest all year round. The main golfing season is between October and May for example, when it is too cold to play in the chilly climes of northern Europe, so renting your property out is far from a summer-only option.
