Pass the Keys® is the UK’s leading short-let property management 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.

The Short-let Market

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.
