The Rest Easy Group was founded in London in April 2014, as Snaptrip, a  marketplace for people to discover the best last minute cottage holiday deals in the UK, was launched

 

Our vision

I want the Rest Easy Group to be the home of the UK’s leading marketplaces for self-catered holiday properties at home and abroad. With a focus on last minute and distressed sales, we will drive great value for our suppliers and customers alike.
— Matt Fox, Rest Easy Group CEO & Co founder

Our core values

We are value champions

We believe that there should be a holiday cottage for everyone; regardless of their budget, timing or who’s going.  We always strive to ensure our customers find the right holiday for them at the best possible price for every possible budget.  We understand that while all our customers needs are different, we know and appreciate the value in the experience they want to take and will champion on their behalf best price and discount at all times.

We are trustworthy

We will only work with suppliers who can 100% guarantee the validity of their inventory and the security of our customers holidays.  We will work tirelessly to ensure our website focuses on truth, as we know how difficult it can be to find the perfect place to stay.  We are here for you if and when you need us. 

We are pioneers

We focus on distressed inventory.  We focus on price, we focus on live availability, we focus on discounts and we look to the future not the past.  We will always strive to make booking your holiday easy by solving complex problems in simple ways, never accepting the status quo. 

We are inspirational

We share our zest for life and love of the UK in everything we do. People come to us not just for breaks but to broaden their horizons.  We build the tools that inspire our customers to find the perfect place to stay, whether they want to sit by the fire or climb a mountain.  We make it easy to find good times. We’ll take a customers idea, no matter how vague, and turn it into their perfect Snaptrip.
