Bringing together a team of experts with more than 50 years’ experience between us across holiday home management, hospitality, marketing, business, and administration.
Our team has decades of combined experience in providing coastal, rural, and super yacht holidays in the UK and around the world.
We spotted the model of Host + online travel agent a few years ago, as Expedia invested $3.9billion to acquire online travel agent HomeAway in 2016/17 and as local agencies launched in the 1980s and 1990s being bought up over the last five years by conglomerates who centralised the service and lost personalised and regional expertise.
We have observed the changes in the industry and have seen property owners with those traditional agencies begin to feel like a number, with less and less autonomy over their holiday let. We became increasingly aware of the lack of guidance regarding guest safety and owner liability without local 'boots on the ground'.
There are a small number of new, independent premium niche agents rising up. They do a great job, but often require owners to be seeking 35 to 45 letting weeks per year when more and more owners want the flexibility to holiday or work remotely as they choose, so don't want such high demand.
Some owners looked to the online travel agents to help but without an agency weren't confident on the compliance or marketing required to let and/or found they didn't have the time or want the hassle of guest communications and administration.
There was nowhere for owners to go for flexibility, compliance, knowledgeable local service, with value for money, until 2019, when HolidayHost arrived.
We in the HolidayHost team have launched the solution and we're going to share it to help every holiday homeowner in South Devon and East Cornwall who wants the choice, security and profit we can bring.
