What Passpawt is all about?

Passpawt is the fastest growing 100% dog friendly holiday site in the UK. Our aim is to help guests who want to holiday with their dog, quickly and easily find the most suitable self-catering accommodation, in the places they want to stay, and at the time they want to stay. Our aim is to empower dog owners by providing them with unrivalled levels of local area detail, to ensure they and their dogs, make wonderful memories.

“At last, a site that puts the dog at the centre of the holiday!”

“Passpawt are addressing one of the fastest growing sectors in British holidays at the present time.”

The Solution

Passpawt currently has a pilot site that allows dog owners to select from around 18,000 dog friendly self catering cottages, apartments and lodges. This has been providing us with invaluable insights into customer’s holiday life-cycle, and feedback on what features and services need to be provided in the future.

Based on the feedback we have had from our guests, Passpawt will be introducing:

Extensive up to date location specific information on dog friendly attractions and activities to help dog owners plan on where they would like to holiday

An ever increasing inventory of dog friendly holiday properties to enjoy a relaxing holiday with their dogs (we already have over 18,000 contracted holiday properties with another 35,000 coming soon) throughout the UK and Europe detailing more and more dog friendly features

Access to local amenities, activities and services to enjoy while on holiday on a mobile platform

More choice, more ideas, more great holidays!

Guests who travel with their pets love Passpawt, because they can search the largest selection of 100% dog friendly cottages, apartments and lodges all in one place, so they can look forward to a holiday to remember. We know they will also love the new search features that we are planning to introduce in the coming months, to help them find pet friendly pubs, restaurants, attractions, beaches as well as emergency vets and pet supplies. .

Crowdfunding information

In mid-late August 2018 we’re launching our funding round to support our continued growth plans.

So far, the business has been funded by the founders of the business.

We are now launching a crowdfunding round to enable new investors to participate in the growth of Passpawt. We have already had a lot of interest in this funding round, so we are taking steps to ensure that you get the chance to share in our success.

From now until the official launch, you can pre-register for the crowdfunding by filling out a few details at the top of this page. Then just before we launch publicly, you will receive a personal link to enable you to submit your pledge on the Crowdcube website before our campaign goes public.

For early birds, Passpawt is an SEIS investment, making it extremely tax efficient for qualifying investors. As only a small amount of SEIS investment is available, it will be allocated on a first come first served basis so early access to the campaign gives you the best chance of benefiting from this valuable tax benefit.

Passpawt will be using this funding round to build out our offering, by increasing our inventory across the UK and Europe, as well as investing in our marketing and customer support team, enabling us to offer guests and advertisers an even better holiday and booking experience.
