Short-Term Lettings Market Continues to Boom
The short-term rental market has seen a number of changes over the last few years. These advancements have been brought about by platforms such as AirBnb, Booking.com, and of course our very own short-term letting platform, SkyLet. This, in conjunction with the continuous rise in the rental market post-COVID19, means that the short-term lettings market is more accessible than ever for many to rent out their properties on a short-term basis and generate fantastic returns year-round.
So, Why SkyLet and how does it work? Watch the latest in our 60 Second video series below from our Managing Director, Chris Whetstone to find out more.

Short-Term Rentals, A Rapidly Growing Market
The short-term rental market has become a rapidly growing market in 2022, with Airbnb alone now boasting over 100 million active users. The number of people using the platform has increased by more than 60% in the past year alone.
Bookings Increase By Over 100%
In 2022, the average number of nights per booking has increased drastically. This increase in the average number of nights booked per stay is great for consumers looking for short-term rental solutions. Not only does this mean less time searching for properties, but it also means that you’ll have more options if you need multiple nights at a particular location before moving on to your next destination or event!
However, merely posting a short-term rental property on Airbnb isn’t enough to generate bookings and profits – once you’ve got your vacation home listed the next challenge is attracting bookings to make it a viable business. At Flambard Williams, we specialise in ensuring that your property stands out from the competition, focusing on prime city centre locations where people want to be all year round.
