Holiday cottage site Snaptrip celebrates 300% increase in bookings
Snaptrip is an online hub for last-minute UK cottage holidays. They specialise in making spontaneous, impulsive UK breaks possible by providing holiday cottages at a discounted rate. This concept really took off over the last two years and has seen the company achieve some incredible successes.
Launched in May 2014, they offer holidaymakers the chance to save up to 60% on the cost of a cottage, lodge or apartment break throughout the UK. Now Snaptrip are celebrating the end of its financial year (December 2015 – November 2016) with a 300% growth in bookings and revenues. The growth announcement confirms the company’s success in offering holidaymakers the chance to save as much as 60% on the cost of a spontaneous cottage holiday.
The business has seen a number of exciting developments in 2016, including a re-designed website, increase in the range of properties available and a number of new appointments, including Commercial Director Joanna Davis, previously of Trip Advisor, Holiday Lettings and Blue Chip Holidays.
Matt Fox, CEO and co-founder of Snaptrip, said: “It’s been an incredible year for Snaptrip and we are looking forward to continuing this success into 2017. We now have a strong dedicated but relatively lean team, which is great for a start-up that only took its first booking in 2014. Throughout 2017 we will continue to spread our message far and wide. Bringing additional funding into the business will allow us to increase our brand awareness and continue to improve our offering.”
These changes have provided an improved booking experience across all device platforms and have allowed the pet-friendly business, so far, to save 40,000 people (and 3,700 dogs) £800,000 on accommodation costs. Cementing its position as the leading dedicated discount platform for UK holiday rentals, the volume of bookings that enjoyed over a 15% discount also increased dramatically from the previous financial year.
Massive Congrats to Snaptrip and I look forward to the next year of even greater success.
