Travel Chapter is one of the UK’s leading holiday rental platforms, offering a wide selection of c.8,000 high quality properties across the UK. It has a number of consumer brands including its flagship brand Holidaycottages.co.uk and specialist lifestyle and regional brands such as Canine Cottages and Cottages & Castles, all focused on delivering exceptional customer service.
The transaction marks an exit for ECI who partnered with Travel Chapter in 2018, and since then the business has grown strongly, both organically and through completing seven acquisitions, significantly expanding its geographic footprint and the number of high-quality properties it has available. In June 2021, the business made its largest acquisition to date, acquiring the award-winning Sally’s Cottages brand, which boasts over 500 properties in the Lake District.
