New beginnings

A NEW NORFOLK COMPANY IS LOOKING FOR HOME OWNERS WHO WANT HELP HIRING OUT THEIR PROPERTIES.

A NEW NORWICH-BASED COMPANY, Norfolk Holiday, helps holiday home owners hire out their properties on its super easy website and through its partnerships with major travel brands like Airbnb and Booking.com. Caroline Wickham, Head of Sales and Marketing, says: ‘Last year 82 percent of bookings were made from a website or mobile app, without any human interaction! In my opinion Norfolk has been missing a company who can lead the way with online bookings, which is where we come in.’

As well as offering a very competitively priced service, Norfolk Holiday has tapped into the huge cultural scene in order to attract more bookings, with Caroline explaining: ‘Food is a massive pull for visitors; in July HuffPost voted Norwich the most vegan and vegetarian friendly city in the UK. It recommended to: ‘book train ticket immediately,’ which we totally agree with!’

Norfolk Holiday is part of the travel startup Holiday Online, founded by former Head of Overseas at Rightmove, Sham Golamy. The business is going from strength to strength, and recently attracted more than 200 investors during a crowdfunding pitch on Seedrs.

Sham says: ‘We are really excited to have set up our HQ in Norwich where there is amazing talent on our doorstep and access to such wonderful properties in this beautiful county.’ He adds: ‘The company’s slogan is: ‘For Travellers Chasing An Experience, Not Just An Expensive Place To Sleep’ and Norfolk has so much going on, we can offer places to stay based around key events in the county.’

IF YOU ARE renting out a cottage, caravan, B&B, shepherd hut or glamping pod and would like to know more about what Norfolk Holiday does, contact owners@norfolkholiday.com

SPECIAL OFFER FOR FEAST READERS: anyone who registers a new property before the end of October 2019 will be entered into a competition to win a dinner for two at one of Norwich’s finest restaurants.
