Holiday let investments are properties purchased for the purpose to rent out to holidaymakers for short periods at a time.

The type of investment can vary from stand-alone cottages to lodges in holiday resorts and can begin as early as picking a plot off-plan. You may also have options to self-service the properties, or to let a management company cover the guest turnaround and maintenance of the property/ lodge.

Is a holiday let investment a good investment?

A holiday let investment can be a great opportunity to generate a lot of potential profit; as with any investment, it’s important to do your research before you begin the buying process.

It’s at this stage that some investors can be put off by the amount of target market research, maintenance, and admin required to keep on top of a revenue-generating holiday investment. However, as there are many different types of holiday let investments to consider, the right research should help to find an opportunity that works for you.

Don’t forget, there are additional factors outside of your target audience to consider when researching buy to let holiday investment opportunities; are you required to pay stamp duty? Do you need to pay council tax? Are there maintenance or ground rent fees to contribute to?
