I am finding myself with *five* weeks open still this Summer Sad I don't think it's ever been so quiet! I was wondering if you have success with any fb groups, etc. for last-minute availability or specials? It's a fly-in location and I usually get mainly Americans...but that dosen't work last-minute! I was hoping to maybe see if I can get UK exposure w the lowest cost flights and all!

Is this your Italian property Musetta?

Where are you advertising?

I am getting simply loads of last minute enquiries for July/Aug thru OD from the UK. If you are able to, clear your calendar, remove minimum stays, fixed changeover....on OD all these will stop your property showing in searches.

I'm finding quite a lot of people have flexible dates even at this late stage.......

Yes, Italy. (only have the Italian hr now) I'm on vrbo & ha subscription and od and hl/tripadvisor and Airbnb pay-per-booking but I'm getting silence from all. I can't really clear all dates though on od since I'm pay-per-booking, right? Get rid of my 3night min I guess I could do...I don't have a fixed changeover. It's a separate listing from my ha/vrbo subscription thigh and I have no reviews on od...maybe I can request from a previous guest who reviewed on ha (?) I update calendar daily. Special offer maybe? I'm at a loss. I could tweak and add in cleaning fee separately to make it look less expensive?

Yes I was thinking that. I did one a little while back targeting U.S. but I didn't get much out of it...and the people that "liked" seemed off...not the type who normally like my page of that makes sense...so I guess I need to target my audience better!
