Pass the Keys® is the UK’s leading Air-bnb Management Franchise 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.
It is not always possible for a homeowner to manage a short-term rental. It is estimated that one property will take a minimum of 50 hours per month to manage as an Airbnb. However, Airbnb properties receive a staggeringly better return on investment than traditional long-term lets, and there remains an extremely large number of potential hosts with second homes who do not use the platform.
Over the last 12 months, Pass the Keys® Hosts have earned an average of 180% net rent on the short-let market than they would have otherwise earned on the long-let market.
Since Pass the Keys® launched in 2015, they have become the experts of the short-let management industry, and they are excited to pass on their knowledge and bespoke technology to ambitious entrepreneurs across the UK. Pass the Keys® have gone from zero to more than 70 franchise territories in just three years!
2020 was a huge test – but one they passed successfully! Pass the Keys® recruited over 30+ Franchise partners and won two national awards during a global pandemic.

The fact that you actually see the results of your hard work. The results are tangible and there is definitely a sense of achievement as you add properties to your portfolio and things become more streamlined, and of course profitable. The byproduct of this is an ever-increasing knowledge of the market and potential in your area.
There is full training and support throughout your journey. What I love however is that there is still plenty of room for you as an individual to show your entrepreneurial spirit. I enjoy the fact I wear many hats on a daily basis. I will work on marketing strategies, sales processes, operations, managing relationships and all the financial responsibilities of being a business owner each day. Amy Duff (Portsmouth)
