Peak Bookings Season is Just Round the Corner

Holiday Calendar

So peak season is over, kids safely back in School and time to draw a breath and reflect on how it all went.  Hopefully you had a successful summer with your holiday rental business, but would you have liked to have seen a few more bookings, or a slightly longer season? Are you already feeling daunted at the prospect of filling next years empty calendar and wondering where to focus your efforts?

I often hear mixed messages from holiday home owners about what works and what doesn’t.  Is Owners Direct better than Holiday Lettings?  Does the success of a certain rentals listing site over another depend on whether you own a golf property or a large country retreat?  I honestly don´t think it does, but what does matter is how you stand out from the rentals crowd. I know one house owner who had huge success with Owners Direct in 2009, but then in 2010 hardly anything – she had done nothing different but the bookings just didn’t come in as well as the previous season.  Well, perhaps that is the problem – she did nothing different.

Success in holiday property marketing will not come from putting all of your eggs in one basket, but it will come from focusing on a unique selling point and doing it to the very best of your ability.  And that is where Tots to Travel can help, giving you all the expertise, advice and support that you need.

    I agree with you about the ‘unique selling point’. Sometimes, though, I don’t think the owner is the best person to identify it – a case of ‘can’t see the wood for the trees’. Perhaaps the use of a critical (but kindly) friend and/or someone local to the area might be better suited to seeing opportunities. I think you’re making an important point about doing something fresh each season. Thanks!
