Subletting your holiday home when you are not using it can offer a great way to earn extra income to offset your running costs.
Our subletting service offers you the chance to earn income by subletting specific breaks within our current holiday calendar, there are no minimum weeks required to qualify, offering you full flexibility. There are specific dated throughout the year (including bank holidays and main school holidays) when we have a huge amount of demand from holidaymakers; these are also dates when customers will pay the most for their holiday, which in turn will earn you the highest amount of income. We have highlighted these "peak weeks" on your earnings guide.
Knowing in advance what expenses you are likely to incur throughout the season is the secret of Sub-letting successfully. Unlike many of our competitors we charge one flat fee of just 35% meaning that there are no nasty surprises at the end of the year.
Our fully managed letting service will allow you to remain in control at all times. We can simply deal with every aspect of letting your holiday home, meaning you can relax in the knowledge that your home is in safe hands.
Our commitment to improving the level of communication between us means we would ask you to read this section carefully.
This will depend on the grade of your holiday home and the number of weeks you sublet your holiday home.
We always endeavour to earn you the maximum amount of income possible. You will no doubt be aware from your own holiday experiences that the holiday market is extremely competitive, therefore, in an effort to let your holiday home we may offer discounts which will affect the amount of income that you earn.
We do assure you that all discounting decisions are taken in a controlled manner with your best interests at heart.
You will find an earnings guide in your sublet agreement form which can be used as a tool to calculate rough earnings. The price on the earnings guide excludes commission. Please note that this should be used as a guide only.
The enjoyment of your holiday home is our key objective. If you want to change your dates please telephone the park reception to check availability; we will always do our best to meet your requests. All agreed changes must be confirmed by the owner in writing, or by email to our central reservations office.
NB Any further dates requested or changes made are subject to availability.
Simply fill out the sublet agreement form ticking the dates that you would like to sublet your holiday home with Kingsdown Holiday Park. As soon as we receive your form we will arrange with you to inspect your holiday home, which will determine the price at which we are able to sell your lodge. Factors we will be looking at include:
Minor essential repairs - Once we commence letting your holiday home we will carry out necessary repairs which you will be invoiced for, if they are under £25 they are included within the 35% commission. We will advise you of the need for any major repairs over £100 before going ahead with them where reasonable practical, and will recharge you as and when these costs occur.
Televisions - Every holiday home must have a colour television with digital channels or a Freeview box and a DVD player. We reserve the right to provide a replacement television and charge you accordingly if the original needs repair. You should arrange a TV licence and send a copy to us.
Housekeeping - We offer a wide range of housekeeping services including steam cleaning carpets, mattresses and upholstery, spring cleaning and outside cleaning of your holiday home.
We will advise of the necessity of any of these services once we have inspected your holiday home.
Dogs or pets of any kind are not permitted in your holiday home at any time.
Our normal cleaning charge will be levied for all owner bookings. If, when you are personally using your holiday home and you would prefer to clean it on your departure we offer the service of a "Check Only" for a reduced charge. Our team will make the beds, complete required safety checks and ensure that the holiday home is fully prepared for your next booking.
Any personal items should be removed from your holiday home to avoid unnecessary upset arising from breakages or losses.
