About Us

Pass the Keys is the UK’s leading short-let Property Management Business that helps homeowners let out their properties on platforms like Airbnb and Booking.com.

They are the UK’s largest professional co-host of Airbnb, dealing with everything from booking management and guest communication to check-in, cleaning and maintenance. Pass the Keys is looking for ambitious entrepreneurs like you to use their brand reputation, technology and expertise to manage a large number of short-let properties.

The Short-let Market

In 2008, Airbnb revolutionized the short-let market and enabled homeowners to let out their properties. Millions of people have adopted the platform already but there remains an extremely large number of potential hosts who cannot use the platform because they either don’t have the time to manage it themselves or they live remotely.

Pass the Keys provides the solution by offering an end-to-end short-let property management service. Homeowners can let out their property without doing any of the work and can earn up to 50% more by doing so on the short-let market rather than the traditional long-term market.

The Pass the Keys Franchise Opportunity

Established in 2015, Pass the Keys has grown from a small London-based company to a trusted UK-wide brand with some of the highest ratings on Trustpilot and Google Reviews. You will automatically gain Airbnb Professional Co-host status when you partner with Pass the Keys, giving you credibility from the outset.

The Franchise Package:

As a Pass the Keys Franchisee you will benefit from:


Pass the Keys has developed an industry-leading technology that enables franchisees to manage 50 properties with just one person, resulting in a lean business model with low fixed costs. The technology incorporates everything from sales and marketing lead generation all the way through to guest communication and invoicing for your service providers. This results in you having more time to sell your services and build relationships with your existing hosts.


In the past 5 years Pass the Keys has learned a lot about how to run the business and how to avoid the pitfalls. All of their best practices will be passed on to you through their PTK Academy which has been designed to take you to short-let management maturity, even if you have no previous experience. The PTK Academy comprises an initial training course and an e-learning platform to ensure that you have all the knowledge you need to be successful.


Pass the Keys is very focused on building a supportive community and has a buddy programme to help new starters find their feet. They hold quarterly meet-ups where the franchise network and Heads of Department share best practices and discuss ideas. As a franchisee, you will also become a member of an active community support channel where you can ask your peers for recommendations and share updates.
