Our response to Coronavirus (Covid-19)
From the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have, of course, been focused on supporting our homeowners, guests and staff. Safety has been our top priority, alongside timely information. In a world with so many unknowns, we have cut through the noise to give our homeowners clear, regular and informed communications about the situation, what it means to them, how we’re adapting, and what they need to do to adapt.
We have made sure that we’re always available on the end of a phone or email too, and the feedback from our homeowners has been fantastic – we, and they – feel like our relationships have only strengthened during this time.
And now, with holiday bookings on the up, we are helping our homeowners to make their properties safe and ready for visitors. We understand how holidaymakers’ needs are changing and advising our owners on how to optimise their property – from facilities, to pricing – to achieve their booking potential.
