Pass the Keys is the UK’s leading short-let property mangement business that helps homeowners let out their properties on platforms like Airbnb and Booking.com.
They are the UK's largest professional co-host of Airbnb, dealing with everything from booking management and guest communication to check-in, cleaning and maintenance. Pass the Keys are looking for ambitious entrepreneurs like you to use their brand reputation, technology and expertise to manage a large number of short-let properties.
In 2008, Airbnb revolutionized the short-let market and enabled homeowners to let out their properties. Millions of people have adopted the platform already but there remains an extremely large number of potential hosts who cannot use the platform because they either don’t have the time to manage it themselves or they live remotely.
Pass the Keys provides the solution by offering an end-to-end short-let property management service. Homeowners can let out their property without doing any of the work and can earn up to 50% more by doing so on the short-let market rather than the traditional long-term market.
Established in 2015, Pass the Keys has grown from a small London based company to a trusted UK-wide brand with some of the highest ratings on Trustpilot and Google Reviews. You will automatically gain Airbnb Professional Co-host status when you partner with Pass the Keys, giving you credibility from the outset.
After 4 years of refining their bespoke technology, business model and processes, Pass the Keys opened up their offering to empower entrepreneurially natured individuals to build their own successful short-let property mangement business.
