Obviously the amount of money to be made from the site is low so have gone for a free hosting company and do not want to pay for inclusion into search engines.
My problem now is getting a bit of PR, I take it DMOZ will not except this site? what about other directories?
Who should I ask for links?
Whats the best way to go forward? I would appreciate any suggestions at the moment I'm considering going the PPC way and hope the conversion rate is very very high :)

Why wouldn't DMOZ accept it? Part of the Regional structure would probably have the following category for your locality: Travel_and_Tourism/Lodging/Vacation_Rentals/ . Other links? Other non-competing local companies who might be interested in the concept - taxis (airport transfers), restaurants, local places of interest - or alternatively, similar sites on the other side of world.
I do a small amount of editing in lower categories exactly like that and...as long as the site works,doesn't take ages to load and has more than 1 page i.e some information on the area then I would always accept it. You shouldn't have a problem making a 4-5 page site and then you will have no problem getting accepted.
tigger is right. I have about 40 links to my small site and a pr of 5. It's in the same business as you....almost.
