Advertising with France for Families

France for Families features holiday properties that are owned/managed by either independent Owners and selected family travel businesses.

This website is a ‘listing’ site as oppose to a booking portal, meaning that our Owners have full control of their holiday booking process. Leads are passed on to the Owners, who then liaise with the guest, managing the whole booking from start to finish. The Owner owns the data and has full control over their financial matters, from deposits to final payments.

France for Families simply works on a paid for listing basis, providing a low-cost  option for generating quality leads and bookings to holiday properties in France.

Website Visitor Stats

The France for Families website has almost 100,000 unique users and just under 300,000 page views per year. Our demographic is predominantly 25 – 54 years, biased towards female, coming predominantly from the UK market. A secondary market aged between 55 – 74 is increasing, indicating perhaps older generations looking for extended family holidays or holidaying with grandchildren.

72% of the website visitor market is from the UK, with additional traffic coming from the USA, Canada and European countries. 2020 saw a growth in visitors from France, the Netherlands and Denmark.

Website traffic is predominantly driven through organic search traffic (from Google search etc), direct traffic and social media referrals.
