CORONAVIRUS – How we are helping businesses

  1. For the duration of the Coronavirus restrictions, we will not charge a fee for claiming listings for individual businesses (see below) on Petrolheads Welcome.
  2. All currently claimed listings will be extended so that no renewal fees are payable until after the effects of the pandemic have become less severe in terms of commercial and travel freedom, etc.
  3. We will continue to promote claimed businesses, e.g. through our newsletters, social media, etc. in readiness for improved circumstances for businesses and customers alike.
  4. We will be happy to include offers from businesses that are seeking to promote themselves and who contact us for help (e.g. selling items remotely that are usually reserved for visitors… such as cafes offering takeaway services instead of their usual sit-in custom). Our blogs & vlogs could be useful to you in this context.

Please contact us if you would like further information or help.

Getting the most from your Claimed Listing

Here are some tips for making your listing as attractive as possible to our members/users:

  1. Feature a nice car on your main home and search pages. The more exotic or unusual the car, the better in this context.
  2. Add a testimonial at the beginning of your listing description. Better still if it’s one from a Petrolheads Welcome member.
  3. Mention good driving roads near your property and add a photo if you can. Our members like to see sweeping bends with great vistas. Have you got one?
  4. Add details of fuel stations, car-based attractions, etc. If there’s a nearby attraction (such as a museum) that’s not listed on our site, tell us and we’ll add it. It will also then show on your listing page as another reason to visit you.
  5. Encourage your visitors to rate/comment on your listing. That might result in your venue to being upgraded to our Gold standard.
  6. Contact us to discuss what you can offer. We might have other ideas to help your business succeed through what we do… and we love chatting!
