Tuesday 12th July, 2022 by hostandstay
The time has come to get your sunnies out, start that glorious tan and feel the summer breeze. Holidaymakers are beginning to book their next trips away and soak up the rich history that the United Kingdom has to offer.
We have all seen the issues with travelling abroad since airports reopened their gates for eager passengers. Flights being cancelled and travel restrictions still in place for numerous countries, many people are starting to reconsider their trips to Thailand or breaks to Barcelona for a weekend away closer to home.
People flock to the idyllic North for the culture and gorgeous views every year. Hotels are infeasible for lots of tourists, looking for a more personal experience. Here is where Host and Stay can be a great option for many that are looking to ingrain themselves in all the North has to offer.
However, many are still opting for a staycation over travelling abroad, now really is the perfect time to start your hosting journey with us. With our fully managed and hassle free service, you can be relaxing on the beach whilst earning some extra cash – It really is that simple.
Below we have listed some key reasons as to why this summer is the perfect time to start letting.
At Host and Stay, you are completely in control!
Simply tell us when you want to let the property out and we will sort all the details, giving the freedom to make your own plans, rather than having to plan around potential guests.
Once your property has gone live on our website, tell us what dates you would like to let it out and we will manage all the bookings and maintenance. We will also push you live on over 60 global platforms, making it even easier to find guests to fit around you.
Letting your property in summer gives you that much needed time away, whilst still being on your own terms.
We aim to make the processes of letting as stress-free as possible, so let someone else do the dirty work!
We provide a five star housekeeping service, meaning that you will come back to your property just how you left it. No need to worry about taking the rubbish out or hoovering the floors, we’ve got it covered.
The summer holidays are big business in the tourism world.
Each year, during the school holidays, thousands of families try to look for exciting places and attractions to take the kids to, whilst also trying to offer their young ones a learning experience. Parents also have the dilemma of travelling with their little ones, with many finding long haul flights exhausting.
Having this in mind, what’s better than a local staycation, with walking trails, museums and other family activities in abundance?
Here is where you come in.
Hotels are an expensive option for young families and they may not provide all the amenities that a house can. Having the ability to cook your own food whilst on vacation and park your car in a safe neighbourhood for free is a big plus, especially when trying to get the car seat in and out.
All these factors make your holiday home the perfect option and a very popular one during the summer months.
The main perk of renting out your holiday home is of course, the extra income. With fluctuating inflation, every penny counts and having a passive income is a great way to allow you to offset the rising costs. You set the prices for your home, choosing how much to charge per night, week or month.
Make sure that you price accordingly. The location, number of rooms and amenities offered are all major factors when calculating your cost, as you want to maximise guest satisfaction and pique their interest in your property.
It’s a running joke that you can’t rely on British weather, but in fact, the UK is slowly starting to get warmer with record breaking heatwaves flooding in every few years. Temperatures starting to surpass 32C (89F) are making holiday goers flock to the nearest seaside, to get in their dose of Vitamin D rather than needing to hop on a plane.
There has never been a better time to spend summer closer to home and with British guests looking for gardens to soak in the sun, holiday lettings will continue to spike in the summer months.
