How it Works?

It's a really simple process:

  1. Inform your customers that you can offer activities in your property
  2. Tell them to contact Funktion Events 
  3. Our team will deal with everything else; you don't need to do anything more
  4. The customer chooses the activities
  5. Once their short stay is complete, we'll send you the commission

What Commission Can I Earn?

We pay a fixed commission of £25 for every activity booked with us.

Here is a typical example, customer decides to book:

  • Private chef for Friday night
  • Perfume making class on Saturday afternoon

You would earn 2 x £25, so a total of £50.

As for activities in partnership with Funktion Events, it's little to no extra work! You can cater entertainment to your groups, pass the hardwork over to us and earn commission.

With this particular market of party houses and mobile activities ever-growing, now is the chance to earn extra profit and branch out.

Activities in Airbnb (Experiences)

Airbnb have been offering experiences (activities) for its customer for the last 3 years. The chart shows significant interest by customers most likely staying in Airbnb throughout the UK.

Google Search Trend - Airbnb Activities

As Airbnb is a leading company in the short stay accommodation market, it's worth taking note of what they are doing and why.  These activities can be booked when staying at any Airbnb.  They decided to offer this as there is demand from their customers and it sets them aside from other self-catering platforms.  It's also a great way to generate extra income as they get paid commission for every event booked (Funktion Events pays you commission as well).

Creates a New Revenue Channel

A super simple system.  If you refer our activities to your group and they decide to book with us while staying at your property, we will pay you commission.  We pay for every activity, so if they book 2 activities (which is the average for our groups) then you will earn commission off both.
