New Forward Thinking Company Lets Itself Into The Last Minute Self-Catering Market

Putting the late into late availability and the fun back into booking a brilliantly British break, the UK’s first one-stop-shop for self-catering holidays, latelettings.com, fills the gap in the last minute market.
Unlike other specialist late availability services and discount sites, holiday bargain hunters literally won’t be able to take their eyes off the fast-changing deals on an extensive new range of UK and world-wide Late Lettings properties from this new company born in Cornwall.
A first for last minute cottages and property owners, Late Lettings guarantees a personalised, flexible service putting owners in the driving seat, controlling their own property pricing with no fees payable unless the property is let.  The site allows them to set and change the prices they are seeking as often as they like.  With a major amount of second home owners, Late Lettings offers this unique new service and ensures that new holidays can be listed quickly, and then managed easily by the owner themselves.  Late Lettings welcomes global listings of all types including cottages, apartments, lodges, caravans, yurts and tipis.
For hassle-free holidays, Late Lettings also speaks to savvy searchers who simply wish to book, pay and go, all through one easy, secure site.  What’s more, once reserved and confirmed, Late Lettings cuts out the time consuming middle-man and gives all the information to contact the owner directly.
This unique concept has been created by Newquay-based business woman, Emily Franklin of Country View Cottages, with the website masterminded by award winning Gendall Design.  As a working Mum, Emily also understands the pressures of booking a holiday in a squeezed economic climate and having little spare time on her hands. 
Emily says, “Owning more than 30 quality Cornwall-based self-catering properties myself, I looked around for a late availability site where I could list any that hadn’t let close to the booking date – and there just wasn’t anything dedicated to this market, or to providing the kind of control that I was seeking as the owner.  So rather than get involved with a service that either demanded a massive commission or high charges, and that also demanded a certain level of prices for the consumer, I decided to set-up my own.  Late Lettings has just gone live and we already have a number of very exciting properties that are being listed.  We are happy to work with private owners and agencies alike to help them solve the challenge of un-let properties.”
From snug, romantic hideaways to roomy family homes, from a base for walking, surfing or golf to a dog's idea of heaven, Late Lettings’ wide range of global accommodation with no hidden costs features properties to fit all tastes, ages, seasons and budgets:
