As demand for staycations increases, so does the admin required for a holiday accommodation business. Introducing Anytime Booking.
Established in 2011, Anytime Booking is a Cornish booking and management system, with an established presence in Cornwall and across the UK. The service currently serves more than 230 thriving campsites, glamping sites and holiday cottage businesses, having so far turned over £140 million in bookings for its existing client base!
“Anytime Booking caters for a range of different accommodation types, and with more holiday accommodation than ever before in the UK”
To put into perspective how much admin time you could save, the Anytime Booking service sends off approximately 100,000 booking-related emails a month during the high season. It is also able to diversify in line with your business, so those offering different types of accommodation under one banner are well catered for as part of one service.
As well as taking care of all your admin, the Anytime Booking system puts your holiday business in front of a global audience, thanks to connections with third party sales channels like Airbnb, Canopy & Stars, Booking.com and more. What’s more, whereas other systems are known to lock you down, with Anytime Booking, you have full control of your unique rules and pricing, which you can change at any time.
Anytime Booking is successful by making the journey from browsing to booking as easy as possible, including on mobile devices. The team, who are always on hand to help you get the most out of your bespoke system, believe that a clear website with strong calls to action and a straightforward booking process will result in less drop-offs in the booking service, and it certainly seems to work.
So where does this methodology come into the lodge, glamping and elite caravan market? Well, as we’ve already mentioned, Anytime Booking caters for a range of different accommodation types, and with more holiday accommodation than ever before in the UK, more people are taking staycations and often spending just as much for a luxury stay here as they would overseas! Lodges are at the cutting edge of the staycation trend, offering maximum luxury while remaining immersive and authentic experiences.
With such a surge in popularity, many businesses are struggling with the increase in demand, namely that of the admin that goes along with it! Always learning from experience and adapting to an ever-changing holiday market, Anytime Booking can take the sting out of this new pressure, freeing you up to ensure that each and every guest gets the most out of their stay, safe in the knowledge that all correspondence – be it queries, bookings or cancellations – are taken care of by a system that’s configured to take care of your individual business’ needs.
