2016 is set to be the most connected year yet

Business is booming in UK tourism

The UK tourism industry is worth £127 billion today, with £13 billion being pumped into the outdoor holiday accommodation market by people looking for adventure and an authentic holiday experience.

The boom of the ecotourism, staycationing, glamping and festival trends, and the rise in cottage industries and the diversification of farming have all contributed to substantial growth in the market we service.

Are you providing a good user experience?

Expectations of holiday makers are higher than ever, with over 60% of them expecting to be able to research and book a holiday online, using laptops, tablets and smart phones. If they cannot book online they are likely to look elsewhere, reiterating the importance of holiday parks, touring parks and campsites in having a web presence complete with an online booking system.

Holiday makers are also more likely than ever to be influenced by OTAs (online travel agents) such as TripAdvisor and Booking.com, so connecting your business with such portals will increase your connectivity and conversion rates.

With Anytime Booking on side, we have all of this covered, so booking a holiday with you will never have been so easy. What’s more we will save you time and money in administration.

Where is Anytime Booking now?

We’ve come a long way since we launched our booking management software in April 2012 and our journey has been truly amazing!

As 2015 drew to a close, we could happily say that we: 

⭐️ have 173 holiday accommodation businesses using our software around the UK, France, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Sri Lanka
⭐️ have processed 137,686 bookings totalling in excess of £37 million since launch
⭐️ have added multiple feature-rich innovations and updated our software to be a responsive, mobile friendly booking process for your customers

Our plans for 2016? We have many! 

⭐️ Our most exciting news for 2016 is that we plan to invite equity investors to our company through a crowd funding platform to help us make strides in our growth. For our customers, this means we can hire more amazingly talented developers and expand the support team to make Anytime Booking an even more awesome piece of kit for your business.
