In a bid to transform and support thousands of operators within short-term rental, CEO of I-PRAC Chris Maughan, has approved an investment of £1 million into the sector, via I-PRAC’s leading verification platform.

The industry leader firmly believes that there is a great deal to be learned in-light of COVID-19; and that this pandemic, should in fact, encourage property owners to build more future-proof businesses.

Now more than ever, STR businesses should focus on sustainability via less commissions and more consumer control. This, as we all know, can only happen through more direct bookings – something that is driven significantly by I-PRAC membership.

I-PRAC’s free membership offer

I-PRAC will open up its global verification platform for property owners and property managers to join, for free as of May 1st, 2020.

The £1 million investment will be used for 2,500 I-PRAC memberships, for the duration of 12 months. This generous offer will give businesses the opportunity to recover after the pandemic; “test” the consumer market, and focus on building sustainable, direct bookings businesses, without any financial commitment.

Property owners and rental managers are under no obligation to continue with their memberships after their free 12 months; but will be able to renew their memberships at market rate, should they wish.

This one-of-a-kind offer can be rolled-out to your own communities of agents and property owners, who will benefit from I-PRAC’s initiative. This will position you, our valued partners, as industry leaders, within your own right.

What does this offer mean for I-PRAC’s partners?

Industry change is inevitable, more so in the ever-evolving travel and short-term rental landscape.

Businesses who understand this, always remain ahead of the curve. By taking advantage of I-PRAC’s phenomenal offer and making it available to your entire community of agents and property owners, you (and your brand) will stand stronger as leaders and be forever remembered for your willingness to help support the STR sector.

The “rebuild” of our sector will happen faster and far more efficiently if we unite, and work together. There is strength in numbers.
