GUIDE TO ACE PACKAGES & PRICES
ADVERTISING ONLY PACKAGE£25 / QUARTER
If you are happy with managing your property but would like to be listed with ACE Holiday Lettings, we can offer you prestigious advertising for your rental property on our website. You manage your bookings and payments but benefit from a huge pool of potential guests for a minimal price.
ACE BASIC BOOKING MANAGEMENTThis package is based on commission, starting at 9% your letting income generated by ACE. We prefer to use our own existing booking platform which benefits our clients by listing a selection of properties meaning more people seeing your property. With ‘basic booking management’ we take the bookings, process them and pass the details on to our clients to continue any communication that may be required.
