FAQs

How long does it take to create a listing?

We would allow 1-2 weeks to create the listing and have you check it. It can be faster if you have an existing profile and the information needed is already available or longer if there is information that needs to be collected and photos were taken. We will help you every step of the way.

How long does it take to receive the first booking?

We can use either if it’s a new listing we would generally recommend using ours as we have an existing and strong profile on booking channels with thousands of reviews that will help new listings get started while if you have an existing profile with good reviews then we can manage your profile

Do we use our profile or yours for the listing?

We will use our own profile service to manage your listing, which makes fees simpler and allows us to manage your property more effectively.

Do you work with sites other than Airbnb?

We can advertise a property on a single booking channel such as Airbnb or multiple channels for wider exposure. Short lets have grown significantly and continues to grow as a popular choice for accommodation.

This in turn has led to an expansion and increased choice in booking channels and platforms for guests and travellers to book their stay. There are now many other large bookings sites offering short term and holiday rentals – Expedia, Tripadvisor, Zoopla, Rightmove, Booking.com, Vrbo, Spot A Home.

What booking platforms do you advertise on?

We will advertise on the booking channels that are right for your property. Some of the considerations will be the location of the property (city-based, coastal or rural), the available period for rental (just a few weeks or all year round), the quality or the finish of the property (e.g. does it offer a good basic standard or luxury type of accommodation), and finally what type of guests you want to attract.

We would normally advertise on about 10-15 major booking platforms/networks that give a wider exposure. Here, we review and add or remove booking channels depending on their performance.

Guest approval – how we screen potential guests:

Our priority always is the safety of your home. So you can feel safe that your home is being left in good hands.

Our partners can rest assured that we thoroughly screen any potential guests so that we can remain confident that the most reputable and reliable guests will be staying in your house or flat.

We screen guests through numerous methods:

These include checking the profile of the guests, their background and any reviews, the level of communication and information provided for their stay, if we are not sure about a guest we will reach out to them to find out more.

There are also several other measures we take to help screen guests and protect the property.

This includes:

  • Taking deposits
  • Having a longer minimum stay
  • Not allowing last-minute bookings
  • Setting house rules and pricing levels
  • Meeting the guests in person – learn more about guest communication.
