Why do people visit Rugby?
People can visit Rugby at any time. In the summer there will be demand for short term rental properties from guests travelling to Rugby for leisure and tourism reasons, but in addition to this there is also year round property demand from people travelling to Rugby on business.
A mix of Leisure and tourism centred around Rugby’s various attractions – some of which we’ve already touched on and some of which we’ll talk about in more depth later draw people to the town. However, when looking at things from a host’s perspective we can’t forget that Rugby is prime hosting real estate. It is smaller and quieter than other nearby locations like Coventry or Northampton, and yet it has excellent transport links. Rugby is essentially surrounded on 3 sides by the M1, M6 and M45, and is only about an hour away from Spaghetti Junction, all of which means that Rugby is incredibly easy to get to and travel away from.
The truth is that there aren’t really any big businesses in Rugby with a need to welcome visitors to town from overseas. That doesn’t mean that people can’t or don’t travel to visit the local businesses of Rugby of course, but it will limit the amount of corporate travel that the town itself receives. Working in Rugby’s favour however is it’s geographical location. It’s ideally placed to act as a commuter town or bedroom community for larger locations such as Coventry or Northampton, and as we’ve seen above, it has the transport links necessary to make getting to these larger towns and cities a breeze – just what short let tenants travelling for business will want.
Leisure & Tourism
Rugby doesn’t just hold value to hosts as a commuter town though – far from it. We’ve mentioned in the introduction to this page a number of different attractions and facts about Rugby that may draw tourists to the town for a visit or vacation.
Don’t forget that Rugby holds a special place in history as the birthplace of Rugby Football – and a visit to (or vacation in) the town that gave their favourite sport it’s name is a bucket list experience for many rugby fans. However, beyond that particular place in history there are also a range of attractions and events held in the town each year. If they’re travelling in from outside of the local area visitors to these goings-on will need some form of lodging while they attend, and your short term let property is highly likely to offer a more personal experience at a lower price, but with no compromises made on quality when compared to a hotel. Again, exactly what some visitors are looking for.
