As a Parkdean Resorts holiday home owner, you may be able to earn income by letting your holiday home when you aren’t using it. With two letting schemes, you can reap the rewards available to you without any of the hassle.
In the current climate, it’s more important than ever to ensure your holiday home is safe and clean between bookings. We know you’ve got a lot on your plate, so let us take on the management of your holiday home and benefit from contact-free check-in, deep cleaning between bookings and managed payments.
Whether your priority is guaranteed earning or flexibility, we have the letting scheme for you. Let us take on the hassle, so you can make the most of your holiday home - when you’re in it or when you’re not.
With both the Guaranteed Income Scheme and the Easylet Scheme, we make the following promises to you:
✔ We'll let out your holiday home, so you can earn whenever you're not using it
✔ All booking confirmations & pre-arrival information will be communicated by us
✔ We will collect all money from holiday guests
✔ Guests can liaise with us during their stay, and we'll manage check-in and check-out so you can relax
✔ There's no need to worry about cleaning or replacing inventory - we'll organise this after every let *
*Please note that should you let your holiday home privately we will only provide a check-in and gas replacement service, charges may apply.
The Easylet Scheme
Our Easylet Scheme is centered around you. Let us know when you are not using your holiday home and we will let it out to holidaymakers. We’ll take care of the booking as well as all the elements mentioned above, and your income earned is 70% of the holiday home tariff paid to us by the guest, minus any other charges that may apply**. It really is easy peasy!
**Parkdean Resorts does not guarantee a minimum earning as part of the Letting Scheme. The holiday home tariff is the amount paid to us by the holiday guest staying in your holiday home excluding extras such as fishing permits, ski passes, half board, cots, high chairs (if we have provided these), cancellation cover and personal holiday insurance (which are retained by Parkdean Resorts).
The Guaranteed Income Scheme
When you choose our Guaranteed Income Scheme, you will receive a guaranteed income - regardless of whether we let your holiday home or not. We will agree your income at the start of the letting period and you can leave the rest to us±.
Not sure which Letting Scheme is right for you? You can combine both schemes to maximise your earning potential! Or get in touch with Owner Reservations Team directly to work out what’s best for you.
± Our obligation to pay you the Owner Income (under any Scheme) shall not apply in relation to any period that the park is closed (regardless of the reason for the closure).
You can combine our Guaranteed Income Scheme with our Easylet Scheme and maximise your earning potential!
What You Need to Know About Letting Your Holiday Home
Your Earning Potential
How much you can earn from letting your holiday home depends on a number of factors, including the size & age of your holiday home, as well as your intended availability. For example, if you choose to let your holiday home during the school holidays, then you could benefit from increased demand and higher rates. As a Parkdean Resorts owner, the choice is all yours. You can enjoy your time on park & make your holiday home work best for you, your family and your schedule.
Before letting your holiday home, or choosing which letting scheme to join, you should consider how you use your holiday home. Whether you love to spend the summer holidays on park with the kids or prefer the quieter off-peak breaks, make our letting schemes work around you. We’ll also need to test your holiday home’s safety features & check everything’s up to standard before we let it for you. You’ll need all the necessary safety certificates, a TV licence & valid insurance that covers letting too.
Ready to start earning with your holiday home? Speak to your park’s Holiday Sales Manager and pick up one of our Letting Schemes Packs, or fill in the form below to receive your pack by post.
In the Letting Schemes Pack, you’ll find all the terms and conditions, as well as relevant signup forms. Alternatively, you can contact our Owner Reservations Team on 0344 335 3442.
