FREE : Guaranteed Payment Protection

SimplyOwners guarantees a FREE 100% payment protection, for those holidaymakers who meticulously follow our method of payment, detailed below.

 Don’t allow scammers to phish or hack your emails to redirect your payments to their accounts. Only ever use emails to send general enquiries and receive general information and always check they are from SimplyOwners or the owner, you should never communicate with anyone else.
Does the property have the requisite licences and permits to be able to rent their property?

Some countries have legislation that requires owners of holiday rental properties to buy licences enabling them to officially rent out their properties. It is important that you check this out with the owners directly as Simply Owners is not a 'renter' and only provides space on its web-site for owners to advertise their properties.

Making Payments:

Only receive instructions on making payments during a phone call that YOU make to the holiday-home owner on the unique phone number that you have received from Simply Owners

NEVER ACCEPT a call or email from the holiday-home owner or anyone else giving you instructions on how to make a payment. Unlike emails, which are easy to hack, a phone number is unique to an accountable individual and the above payment method protects both you (the holidaymaker) and the holiday-home owner.

Never pay by cash or send wired cash through companies like western union. Only ever pay a deposit, unless it is just a couple of weeks before you travel. Always pay using a credit or debit card, bank transfer or an organization such as Paypal. Be sure you have considered all the terms and conditions of the holiday-home owner before you make any payments. Insist on a letting contract, that includes all the details you need such as deposits, security bonds, check in / out arrangements etc. Also be sure to acquire the owners residential address in the event you ever need to make a claim against them for any reason. Check out your holiday-home on google maps, review sites, etc, to be sure you are getting the best property for your needs. Check out your holiday-home owner via reviews, social media such as facebook etc to be sure you are getting the best service. Take time to think about what you want from your holiday home and use the specific filters when constructing your search, to reduce the number of properties you have to choose from. You should not have to compromise on what you need or want, as there are thousands of properties on our web site, all offering that little bit of something different. Make a list of questions you need to ask the holiday-home owner and prepare yourself well before you make the call about the holiday-home.

Payment Protection
Simply Owners covers the TWO most common ways where holidaymakers have been scammed using other web-sites. This is detailed in the Payment Protection section on our site and are:

  • ONE: Spoof Properties.
  • TWO: Payment Interceptions by scammers.
Whilst holidaymakers are covered by Simply OWners against the two main ways that scams have taken place on other sites we strongly recommend that holidaymakers take out adequate holiday insurance for any other eventualities.


Simply Owners only provides advertising space for holiday-home owners and connects potential holidaymakers with the holiday-home owners direct. It does not vet any properties nor verify any comments or content entered into the advert by the holiday-home owner. As such you should check and recheck any points made in the holiday-home owners advert that are important to you.
