#HolsDirect Twitter Hour Mon 24th April

#HolsDirect is a Twitter Hour run by Book your Holiday Direct Twitter Hour every Monday evening from 7pm to 8pm (UK time) and 8pm to 9pm (in France)

The aim is to help show everyone the advantage of booking holidays direct with the owner.  In this way both holiday home owners and holidaymakers avoid the booking fees that many online listing sites charge.  Have you seen how much these are?  If not have a read here.

We've reached some great milestones!!

You can read some of our tips here and here  to get more from the Hour.  You might also want to consider asking questions like these to try and get conversations going - and Twitter is all about chatting:
