Amivac : The French website of seasonal rental between individuals



Amivac now has nearly 30,000 listings, or as many accommodations located in the 4 corners of France: Brittany, French Riviera, Atlantic coast ...

We live in a decidedly digital world, where nearly 50% of the population is now connected to the Internet. We have seen in a previous article that the seasonal rental market did not escape this digital revolution. Indeed, the arrival of OTA (Online Travel Agency) has strongly shaken up the habits of accommodation providers. These platforms sell visibility on the internet thanks to advertisements and a good referencing on Google. This arrival is perceived as advantageous but unfortunately has some drawbacks: commissions are high and hosts do not have the freedom to manage the payment as they wish.

We have unearthed a French site which responds to these problems by leaving the owners completely autonomous in their management. Amivac is specialized in seasonal rental between individuals without commission.

A 100% French site

Unlike most large foreign groups, this platform has taken the gamble of concentrating its panel of rentals in France. Today, Amivac has nearly 30,000 adswith as many accommodations located in the 4 corners of France: Brittany, French Riviera, Atlantic Coast... With a wide and diversified range of accommodation (villas, houses, apartments, gites, guest rooms, mobile homes, barges, castles, chalets...), Amivac is aimed at all types of accommodation providers.

Everything has been thought out so that holidaymakers find what they are looking for. Indeed, the platform allows them to refine their search according to specific criteria; distance from the sea, ski slopes, sea, lake or river views, swimming pool, disabled access, pets allowed, holiday vouchers allowed....

Customer experience first

Customers looking for the perfect holiday getaway pay only for the best. no commission through Amivac. They can get in touch with the owner to exchange directly with him. By not going through an intermediary, holidaymakers do not pay any commission and are free to negotiate directly with the owner to obtain a discount on their rent. For their part, Amivac owners have the possibility of exchanging with their holidaymakers and their provide valuable advice on the region to be visited. So, comfort, conviviality and tranquillity are the order of the day!

No more extra costs

Unlike many ad sites, Amivac owners are free to manage the payment as they wish. It is in this sense that Swikly and Amivac are two complementary 100% services.
