Short Term Let – Put your Property on the Map

Lettings map of UK

With the rise of online advertising platforms such as Airbnb,, HomeAway and Expedia the demand for short-term residential accommodation is now higher than ever.

According to the Airbnb UK Insights Report, between July 2017 and July 2018, hosts and guests using Airbnb contributed an estimated £3.5 billion to the UK’s economy, with approximately 8.4 million inbound guests travelling over this period. This has helped boost tourism not just in the main cities and holiday spots but also other areas across the UK. It is predicted that this year’s report will show a further increase in these figures.

London has been and still is a key city when it comes to short-term lettings, but more recently there has been a growing interest from property owners throughout the rest of the UK. This includes cities such as Liverpool, Manchester, Brighton and Birmingham as well as holiday destinations such as Margate and Cornwall. Property owners are beginning to monetise on travellers who feel that the benefits of staying in a home from home far outweighs those of staying in a hotel.

Guests are not just travelling to UK destinations for business they are also opting to stay for short breaks and longer holidays. Below we have listed just some of the attractions that are drawing people to destinations across the UK.
