Hi,

This year my Christmas bookings have dried up... compared to the last 5 years, I'm having an exceptionally low number of Christmas bookings.

Is it just me? What's your Christmas occupancy looking like so far?

It seems that some of the businesses that focus on larger properties are seeing interest (UK) as echange rates and uncertainty are keeping people at home rather than going abroad as a group.

Nearly everybody had a brilliant start to the year however, so maybe its all equalling out?

Listing sites have too much control,
Bookings, rise & then they fall,
Like the ocean,
Like waves, big or small.

Oh thank God, us too!!

We're experiencing empty Christmas weeks in holiday homes that have never been empty before in 10 years!

It's embarrassing! Owners are asking "WHY" .... it's hard to explain to them that their listings that we place on the large OTA's have messed things up, big time with how potential guest search!! Lots of our owners just assume that all their booking enquiries originate from our site only but sadly we have to reply on the majority coming from HA/OD, HL & AirBnB.

Same problem. No inquiries from HA/TA for several weeks - they are turning the screws!!

I don't think anyone's alone here? I'm from the UK & perhaps tourism is down this year?

I was worrying because Christmas is usually filled with family visits. Are people not visiting their families this year?
