Holiday Home Ownership Buyers Guide To Lettings

A great way of earning extra income to help offset your running costs.

Letting out your holiday home can be a fantastic way of making the most of your holiday home when it’s not in use. Not only that, but the extra income you make can be put towards off setting your running costs! At Bunn Leisure, it couldn’t be easier to let out your holiday home.

Fully managed letting service

The full management letting service offered by Bunn Leisure allows us to act as an agent for owners and hire out your caravan as an extension of the Bunn Leisure letting fleet, the service we offer takes away the stress of you having to organise adverts, collecting payment, cleaning, arranging key collection and organising passes etc. Leaving you to simply receive a payment from us at the end of the season, which you can use towards your site fees.

How much can I earn from my caravan?

Potential earnings really depend on the grade of your caravan, how many weeks you decide to allocate your caravan for hire and the time of year as for July, August and school holidays are the easiest to fill and will earn you more money, the average income in 2018 was £5,120. You will also earn more if your caravan is hired for breaks that are 3, 4 and 7 nights in duration.

Let us handle everything…

As part of our fully managed lettings service Bunn Leisure will:

  • Promote holidays in our annual brochure and via our website, in the national and regional press, on external websites, tour operators, direct mail and much more.
  • Carry out all correspondence with customers and general administration for all bookings.
  • Collect all monies on the Owners behalf.
  • Clean the caravan between hires (any cleaning required after owner booked dates will incur a charge).
  • Provide clean linen for every visitor.

Sounds like a no-brainer doesn’t it?

For more information about letting your caravan please ask a member of our sales team during your tour of the parks. Or pop-in to the Holidays reception and speak to a member of our lettings team. Please note West Point holiday homes cannot be used as holiday lets.
