How much could you earn?

Thanks to HomeAway, it’s never been easier to start capitalising on Cornwall’s growing holiday market.

Cornwall’s popularity as a holiday destination continues to grow every year. It’s a go-to destination for art lovers and foodies, and is the perfect place for those looking to explore rugged coastlines, charming fishing villages and long country walks. For those who own a holiday home here, this translates into a world of un-tapped potential, one that could help fund holidays, home projects – you name it – that you’ve been dreaming of for years. In order to really get the most out of it, the key is to start thinking now about next summer.

This is where HomeAway comes in – a world-leading holiday rental marketplace that specialises in maximising the potential of both second homes and primary residences. As part of the well-known Expedia group, HomeAway ensures your listing has unparalleled visibility, also ensuring your peace of mind via liability insurance that keeps you covered all the way.

All the signs are showing that demand for short-term rental properties – particularly those close to event venues – is on the rise; only recently, thousands of homeowners were able to reap the rewards through HomeAway during the Cricket World Cup. But to turn your home into the serious earner that it has the potential to be, you absolutely need to get it in front of as many eyes as possible – as soon as you possibly can.

So what’s the rush? Well, for one, it’s always good to be ahead of the game – to snap up bookings from those who are hoping to secure their dream getaway far in advance. Secondly, you may or may not be aware that Cornwall has been announced as the host for 2020’s OVO Energy Tour of Britain (the UK’s biggest bike race), with riders set to pass through St Just, St Ives, Hayle, Camborne, Pool, Redruth, Falmouth, Penryn, Truro, Newquay, St Austell and the Eden Project. When you consider the droves of spectators who’re sure to flock to Cornwall for this prestigious event, many in search of places to stay, the benefits of getting your home rental-ready really do speak for themselves!
