London 2012 Olympics Property Rentals Offer Owners A Great Escape

2011-01-18

January 18, 2011, UK. Press Dispensary. With the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics fast approaching, thousands of visitors to the capital will be seeking convenient accommodation for their time at the event. Mindful of this opportunity, a canny company is ‘going for gold’ when it comes to housing the influx of guests. ‘Accommodation for the Games’ (http://www.accommodationforthegames.com ) has launched a website that helps property owners earn recession-beating rental income by advertising their private residential homes or rental investments as a holiday rental available at Olympic-time.

The attractive and user-friendly Accommodation for the Games website showcases accommodation of all varieties. To help visitors decide where to stay, the site describes many neighbourhoods spread throughout the boroughs of London, as well as detailing orbital areas that are hosting Olympic venues. Tailored for tourists, additional information on the site includes hotels, airport transfers, train times, restaurants, theatre booking and other services.

For potential advertisers, the site provides comprehensive online guides on renting out their property. The advertiser can upload photos of their property, describe the amenities available and pinpoint it on a map. They can also log in at any time to amend their listing.

Rex Batey, managing director of Accommodation for the Games, says: “With an additional 908,000 visitors predicted to visit London for the 2012 Olympics*, accommodating all these national and international visitors presents a real challenge but also a great opportunity for homeowners and landlords. Accommodation for the Games goes much further than other rental sites in providing comprehensive information about specific areas of London and their amenities. Our goal was to create the best website for 2012 visitors to source their accommodation and I think we’ve achieved that aim.”

He adds: “Given the current economic climate and the ‘age of austerity’, the 2012 Olympics represent a once in a lifetime opportunity for normal people to rent out their property, stay with friends or escape to a dream holiday, while their home becomes an excellent source of income.”
