Self Catered Holiday Lets – How To Get Ahead In 2015

By on November 3, 2014 in Industry News and Views

Holiday Let CottagesAlongside the thoughts of Christmas celebrations and festive cheer that start to fill our minds at the time of year, for holiday let owners there are also thoughts of what 2015 will hold for their properties. Self-catered letting is becoming an increasingly popular, and increasingly crowded, market for potential holidaymakers, and this trend looks set to continue well into 2015. This offers many opportunities for owners, but also increased competition.

To attract those all-important bookings, holiday let owners are employing increasingly more sophisticated marketing strategies to entice potential holidaymakers into choosing their properties. It is no longer enough to simply place a basic advertisement on the Internet and wait for the enquires to come rolling in; discerning holidaymakers now expect self-catered lets to be a home away from home, and there are more than enough exceptionally marketed properties out there to satisfy them.

We know that, in the age of modern communication, marketing your property successfully can seem like a bit of a minefield. This is why we at TS Properties offer a flexible service for owners: we worry about all of the marketing and advertising so you don’t have to. We work successfully with a number of owners across Scotland, so we thought we would let them tell you about the advantages of working with us.

We have a wealth of local and industry knowledge to help make sure that your property is properly communicated to your target market:

“We utilize an agency because we do not have the knowledge, time or experience to deal with all of the different aspects of holiday letting. TS Properties provides this and more.” Sue Harris – Tigh Na Bata (Bookings Service)

We offer three flexible tiers of service so that you can be as involved as much or as little as you wish with the marketing and running of your property:

“I choose to work with an agency to benefit from the advice, guidance and reputation provided by an established letting agency. TS Properties made everything quick and easy to set up and saved me time and hassle of doing it myself.” Lorraine Thomson – The Creel (Bookings Service)

Our team of tourism professionals can offer advice on everything from monthly rates to photography. There is no query too small for us to help you with:

“Using an agency has benefited me in multiple ways: they dealt with the technical side of letting my property; I gained access to wider advertising links; they provided invaluable advice on rates and standard of accommodation; they act as a buffer between owner and guest; and, importantly, they save me a substantial amount of time.” Louise Morgan – The Little Lodge (Bookings Service)

We pride ourselves on our professionalism and our quick, effective response time. We know how to act quickly to convert enquires into bookings for your property:

Their fees are realistic, their management service is excellent and, most importantly, they provide a high standard of service to guests from their initial booking right through to their stay at the property.” Andrew Morrison – Dauna Lodge (Management Service)

“Our experience with TS Properties has been excellent. They are always professional, responsive and supportive and we would be very happy to recommend them is you are thinking of advertising your holiday home.” Sue Harris – Tigh Na Bata (Bookings Service)
