Autumn … The leaves are falling from the trees and so are the bookings… The days get shorter and so does your bank account… Wait but… you’re in London!! The bookings should be booming! Here are 5 reasons why you should put your flat to work now:
#1 Autumn isn’t a Low Season in London
Have you ever seen someone going to London to enjoy the sun? No, because there is no such thing as sunlight in this city. However, London is the most overnight visited cities in Europe (more than Paris) and the second one in the world. People will always book an Airbnb, whether the weather is bad or very bad. And don’t forget that the best Halloween happens in London and this will surely draw a lot of tourists to your Airbnb. What’s more, since the Brexit, tourism is at an all-time high.
