How are your bookings going?

My April, May, June and July were my absolute best ever (very pleased) ... but Sept - usually very good - is my worst ever (so far!)

My own site and repeats have kept me afloat

Still with OD subscription (now useless and won't renew)
Occasional bookings with Airbnb ..

Any suggestions for other sites??

We use Independent Cottages UK and Simply Owners Direct as our rental sites and have been very satisfied with both of them.
We got off to a slow start early in the season with no bookings at all at Easter then May, June and July picked up. August was 'mixed' and September we are practically booked up.
Oddly enough and for the first time we have had 4 cancellations this year, 3 due to sickness and one where the guests failed to send us the fee with no explanation.

I have one week in Sept that just won’t shift...it finally sold and now she’s cancelled three weeks later! I have had luck with fb ads this year so will probably try that again.
