Did you get the bookings you hoped this year? If not speak to us! 2017 was the best year yet for our property management and rental clients, with more bookings than ever. Check out our summer in numbers

September has been another excellent month with 1,975.850 passengers coming through Malaga airport, an 11% increase on previous years and a warm October has kept tourists thinking about the destination as an Autumn and Winter hot spot too!

Some of our owners now receive an average of 30 weeks per year, well above the traditional peak season of June, July and August. So if you weren’t happy with the number of bookings this summer or found it difficult to manage them, please contact us to find out how we can help you.

Here is some advice for extending your season and attracting off peak and Christmas rentals –

  • Think why your area is good for off peak visits and show that in your marketing. Are you close to golf courses? Do you have great hiking routes nearby? Is there a nice Christmas market or Christmas events taking place in walking distance? All these things are selling points for the off peak traveller.
  • Show that your property works in the winter as well – If you have an open fire, underfloor heating, or central heating, make sure you highlight that when marketing off peak. You want your guests to know that they can enjoy beautiful sunshine and activities in the winter and also snuggle up and be cozy and warm in the evenings, or on a cloudy day.
  • Think about guest’s needs off peak – Make sure the property delivers over the cooler months with warmer bedding, a few rugs and some candles to make it really great in all weathers. Leave a few umbrellas by the door just in case it rains and leave recommendations for good winter restaurants and bars too.
  • Set it up for the holidays – If you want to encourage bookings over the holiday period, take some pictures of the house all decorated and show that it will be decorated on request in December and over the Christmas week, so they can imagine themselves celebrating away from home. If you get any enquiries over this period, help them to imagine spending the holidays in your property and they will be more likely to book.
