Holiday Velvet - a little history

Unlike so many great companies, Holiday Velvet didn’t start in a garage... but it did start in a rather tiny place too: a 25sqm holiday rental apartment in the center of Rome. James and Vanessa, both rental agents at the time, decided here that they could take their local business to a multi-national level.

Why Velvet? You guessed it, that lovely little rental had a sumptuous velvet throw on the sofa... and the silky luxurious fabric became the meaning behind their mission: to provide a smooth booking experience of quality rentals to travelers around the world.

Holiday Velvet - booking holiday rentals the safe way

Although the holiday rental industry has been around for years, it has in 2010/11 enjoyed a new hype around the world. Previously when you spoke about holiday rentals, people pictured a large villa on a beach while now, it is the new way to enjoy city breaks around the world. Afterall apartments have much to offer over hotels: you are able to cook at home saving on restaurant bills, you have more space and you get that delicious sense of experiencing a city like a local.

Where there is hype there is an industry in the making - and so if you are looking for a holiday rental today and search long enough you will be confronted with a million websites and usually two ways to book: with the owner directly or with an agency like Holiday Velvet. A comparison table:
