The last minute solution for UK cottage breaks
There is no recognised brand in the self-catered sector focused on last minute, discounted holidays. For last minute holidaymakers existing websites either provide inaccurate availability and pricing or have limited inventory. For owners and management agents of rental homes there is no dedicated portal to help increase occupancy rates. Snaptrip matches the supply with the demand with an efficient aggregated marketplace to offer a new and technically innovative brand to the self catered sector.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES
Snaptrip provides the largest collection of bookable UK rental properties, more than Airbnb, HomeAway, Owners Direct and HouseTrip. The company aggregates content from numerous suppliers of holiday rental properties onto one website. Within the platform, a membership sign up service is offered where members receive exclusive deals and offers for last minute, spontaneous holiday rental breaks. In 2014, Snaptrip generated 271 holiday bookings with projections of approximately 3,000 in 2015.
Holidaymakers – B2C For the last minute / discount orientated traveller, there are countless brands serving them in the hotel sector. For travellers wishing to book a holiday rental property, there is not one major brand dedicated to offering them accurately available properties at scale. Suppliers – B2B For rental agents, owners and managers of holiday rental properties, there is no platform that allows them to create compelling discounts and offers to encourage last minute holidaymakers to essentially help them fill their empty properties. Snaptrip is the worlds first website that solves both problems.
Snaptrip takes a commission on bookings registered through the website. In order to appeal to suppliers (again something unique to Snaptrip) the commission model is constructed so that the closer to the departure date a booking is, the more commission Snaptrip makes. This maintains focus on the sale of last minute breaks and the assistance of filling the supplier’s empty properties.
