How does your pricing software help me make more?
City Relay internally developed pricing software, OutSwitch, monitors a range of factors including seasonality, days of the week and local demand, to structure almost perfect pricing points for each night throughout the year. Additionally, their gradual minimum length of booking rule, increases the minimum length of stay that guests can book dependent on how far in advance it is. This means that longer bookings are highly encouraged, providing more lucrative bookings and peace of mind over the turnover of guests.
They have achieved an average 80% property occupancy across our host community, which combined with their dedicated revenue teams experience, ultimately creates more bookings at a better price.
How does the 90 day rule affect me?
The 90 day rule limits the number of days your property can be short let per calendar year. Without authorisation from the council, your short let calendar will close once 90 nights have been booked. City Relay manages bookings all year round by combining short let and mid/long let bookings (90+ nights), enabling you to make the most out of your property whilst remaining in compliance with regulations. Their in-house long let team, are naturals in finding you tenants at different stages throughout the year, so you can be sure your property’s potential is met.
What if I want to return to my home?
Your account manager is able to block your future booking calendar whenever you desire. By only opening the dates your property can facilitate guests, for instance when you are on holiday, there will never be any nasty surprises.
What happens to my existing bookings?
If you have existing bookings through your own Airbnb or other platform account, this is no problem as your calendar and the information of guests can be synced with theirs. City Relay will conduct the management in the same way, including personal check-in, housekeeping and 24/7 support, whilst they work to onboard your property within their reservations network to market for future bookings.
Is my property covered by insurance?
In addition to your own home insurance and the coverage offered by some booking platforms, such as Airbnb’s guarantee, we are also partnered with a specialist short letting insurance provider, Guardhog. They provide a range of comprehensive coverage direct to homeowners to protect their property from potential guest damages.
