North Wales Holiday Cottages Cottages is a self-funded business, with a small but dedicated team working from their head office in Deganwy, North Wales, and now running around 120 property listings for around 100 different owners. Maintaining an emphasis on quality, they offer their owners exclusive marketing, access to affordable, professional services like cleaning contacts, photography and, of course, marketing and booking operations for all their holiday homes in the region of Wales made famous for the beautiful and rugged Eryri National Park – known to many as Snowdonia.
Before working with Rentals United, they onboarded very little inventory to large OTA websites, and they could see that they had reached an impasse, where their owners and clients were asking for this capability or beginning to investigate this directly. So, working with Rentals United has enabled them to onboard with stable connections and to multi-channel on their owner’s behalf, saving them time. They established their own internal processes to ensure due diligence while opening new markets and audiences for their owners.
The company understood the challenges of multi-channelling manually. The biggest challenges faced was keeping up-to-the-minute pricing and availability changes correct while regularly managing content changes. They knew they needed a channel manager, and they spoke to a few local agencies with storied experience, and Rentals United continued to come up as a market-leader.
North Wales Holiday Cottages’ goals for today are to sustain and grow back the business to pre-Covid levels, and to refocus their commitment to owners and customers. As such, they have continued with a steady owner recruitment and incremental increase in property and booking figures. The business feels it’s important for them to continue serving both sets of clients as best as they can. However, they want to grow and be a bigger entity, but to do this in a sustainable way to ensure locals and holiday homeowners can co-exist with each other which will ensure services in the region can continue.
