Modern websites for holiday properties

The SCRUMPY platform is the all in one solution for your holiday let and self catering business. We provide everything you could possibly need to promote your property online, attract online visitors and then convert them into paying guests. Our websites with software come with the following as standard:

  • Secure - Complete safety and reassurance for anyone visiting or using your site, with secure encryption, SSL certificates and bank grade security.

  • Compatibility - The entire platform is responsive, mobile friendly, and built for use on any device, with each page resizing itself for the screen it is being viewed upon.

  • Compliancy - Our sites conform to all policies, so whether you are welcoming guests  from the UK or overseas, there is no need to worry about GDPR or Cookie policies.

Impress your customers

Our feature packed websites provide guests with a first class experience, rivalling what would normally be expected from a large online travel agent. In fact, with our help you can offer exactly what the big players can - if not more, making it more convenient and easy for your customers to book direct.

  • Images - The highest quality pictures are displayed at the lowest possible file size. Allowing for the best possible images, at the quickest loading times.

  • Things to do - Help a guest plan their break with an interactive map, annotated with a list of the local attractions and your recommendations of places to visit and eat.

  • Calendar - Our large, year view calendars load instantly, and don’t require any clicking or explanations, allowing guests to effortlessly see what’s available.

  • Online bookings - An intuitive and fluent checkout process encourages and allows customers to commit to purchasing there and then, with a simple, quick process.

  • Insured - Offer cancellation insurance to increase conversions and let guests pay with confidence. You can also earn commission for any protection that is purchased.

  • Guest portal - Customers can login to ‘My Booking’ to amend details, make payments, purchase extras and see other correspondence related to their booking.

  • Online payments - Allow guests to conveniently pay on your website with Stripe, who offer functionality for the likes of Apple Pay. They charge a flat rate for all cards.

  • Offline Payments - Or alternatively enter bespoke instructions for payment, such as your bank number and sort code, which will only be visible from the guest portal.

A powerful booking engine

Working closely with a variety of property owners and agencies has given us a unique insight into the different ways that businesses operate. Which is why we offer a comprehensive set of parameters, which can be configured to your business and the way you work. All designed to streamline processes and save you time from unnecessary admin. 

  • Enquiries - Advanced replies with optional templates that can automatically fill with suggested dates, descriptions of your properties, and links to your website.

  • Booking offers - Our modern take on a traditional booking form lets you quickly send a guest an email link that temporarily blocks out dates, with instructions to book.

  • Automated - Self run system can take payments, and security deposits. As well as send T’s & C’s, room configurations, check in details and post stay feedback emails.

  • Email Tracking - View each bookings activity log to see when automatic emails have been sent and when they were read, as well as viewing what the guest sees yourself.

  • Calendar sync - Use your website as the master calendar, connect it to external listing sites via iCal, and it’ll push out unavailable dates to anything it’s connected to.

  • Pricing - Our flexible Seasons allow you to easily offer different prices throughout the year, whilst with Staytypes you can tailor the duration of breaks that you want to offer.

  • Working Lists - Bookings are sorted dependant on their progress. Allowing you to see at a glance those on hold, awaiting payments, immediate arrivals etc.

  • Alerts - Be notified by email and/or SMS when you receive bookings and enquiries.
