Renting your static caravan
It is common for static caravan owners to rent out their static caravan to generate additional income. The level of additional income will depend on the numbers of weeks per year for which the caravan is rented for. One of the main considerations of renting out a static caravan is the cost of marketing the van to ensure adequate levels of booking. There are two main means of marketing. First, is to self promote the caravan to fulfil bookings. Secondly, the park operator will often market and rent your caravan for you.
They will look after the entire process including organising bookings, payment, cleaning etc. The park operator will however take a commission percentage of the rent as their fee. If you are marketing your caravan yourself there are several options: Friends and Family – easy and reliable option Word of mouth / repeat business – no marketing costs and simple Local Press Advertising - cheap means of advertising National Publications –e. Daltons Weekly Own Website – technical and difficult to operate National 3rd party websites – can be cost effective In addition of the marketing, you will have to also deal with: Advertising and Marketing Dealing with enquires via phone or email Collecting and chasing deposits Collecting and chasing balances Confirming bookings and terms and conditions Dealing with issues such as cancellations Cleaning and maintenance The most cost effective form of direct marketing for owners is often friends and family as this requires no financial outlay.
Many people also like this approach as these users tend to be reliable. So caravan owners will opt for the park operator subletting their static caravan on their behalf, simply because it removes a lot of the work load associated with renting the caravan yourself.
