Our guests rarely use mainstream platforms like Airbnb, so you can remain on other platforms and benefit from more, higher value bookings - our average booking value is 2.3x those of mainstream platforms.
The majority of our guests are more affluent and mature, with an average age of 55 and household income of £140k (USD$175k).
Our guests prefer longer bookings (2x the length of mainstream platforms), which results in improved margins by reducing your changeover costs.
You have real human help at the end of the phone or email, free of charge.
With more demand, hosts can increase nightly rates across all platforms.

“Plum guests appear to be a cut above the rest. Plum's attention to detail when onboarding the property has paid dividends later on. The property is accurately described so guests' expectations are always met.”

We specialize in selling to guests who don’t use mainstream platforms to book homestays. Our guests are more affluent and mature, with an average age of 55. This results in higher value bookings with a greater length of stay.
Every home on Plum Guide has been tested by a Home Critic against 150 different criteria. If your home passes you could become a host on Plum Guide.
The Plum Test has been formulated by a team of hospitality experts. Our Home Critics test your home against 150 different criteria and gather more than 500 data points. This gives our guest confidence they will have an exceptional experience.
Your pricing decisions are up to you. If you are unsure, we would recommend looking at similarly sized properties in the area and using these as guidelines.
Once you receive a reservation, we charge a Plum Guide service fee for individual hosts of 3% of the total accommodation charges plus any applicable local and sales taxes. We also charge a one-time membership fee per listing only due on your first Plum Guide guest check-in. This is a flat fee of £300 / US$400 plus any applicable local and sales taxes to cover the cost of the Plum Test, professional photography, and listing building (yes, we build it for you!).
