With rugby fans from Wales, Scotland, Ireland, England, Italy and France descending upon the UK to watch the 6 Nations in the weeks ahead, homeowners living in the vicinity of the stadia are in a prime position to profit.
New website, Eventfulstays.com, enables people living in areas close to sporting and other events to rent out their property for short time periods — a weekend, a few nights, a week or even fortnight (well, you may live in Wimbledon!) — and make a good return with minimum fuss.
With quality accommodation always in short supply in the vicinity of the Six Nations stadia, and even the capital cities themselves, and popularity of the tournament higher than ever, more and more local residents are seeking to cash in by offering self catering accommodation.
Now, with Eventfulstays.com, the first accommodation website in the UK where properties are searchable by event — sporting, literary, cultural or otherwise — it has become considerably easier for homeowners to find a discerning clientele.
Homeowners already using Eventfulstays.com are making an average of £500 per night, depending on numbers, with some making more than £1500 for a weekend. In many cases, they are choosing to rent out their properties while holidaying abroad, thereby part-funding the trip.
Eventfulstays.com charges property owners 15% of the rental fee for its managed booking service, considerably less than the 20%–35% charged by many holiday rental companies. It provides plenty of advice to new and existing home-owning users of the service and can additionally offer a full tenant vetting service. In all rentals, a security deposit is taken from tenants ensuring additional peace of mind.
Camilla Shaughnessy, founder of Evenfulstays.com, comments: “The Six Nations is one of the biggest sporting events of the year and attendances in 2011 are set to be higher than ever, but at the same time good Six Nations accommodation is still notoriously difficult to find. With the still very difficult economic times we’re in, renting out your home on a short-term basis around a match can be a great way to generate some extra cash, from several hundred to more than a thousand pounds for just a weekend.”
