Tips on renting a holiday home: Will I need heating or air conditioning?

Before you rent a holiday home on Gite.com, you may be concerned about the danger of fraud. What guarantee do you have that the home you want to rent is real? Is it possible that the person claiming to be the owner is just a fraudster who will take your money and leave you with no holiday home?

These are good questions to ask. At Gite.com, we verify the identity of every new homeowner who adds their holiday property to our website. We require to see a passport to verify their identity, plus documentation that establishes the location of their property and their ownership of it.

Many of our new homeowners are recommended to us by existing Gite.com members with whom we have an established relationship. Gite.com is a long-established site and most of our homeowners have been with us for anywhere from 1 to 20 years.

If you have any further questions, or if you have any complaints about a property on Gite.com, please contact us and tell us the details. We will act promptly to resolve any complaints or disputes.
