I-PRAC: Free Approval Certification for ASSC Members

The ASSC is delighted to have partnered-up with I-PRAC, a leading verification platform, to offer free approval certification for ASSC Members.

This is a Free initiative for ASSC Members, that will boost enquiries, consumer trust, and encourage direct bookings.

The need to successfully market your business and drive further direct bookings is now greater than ever. I-PRAC offers a service that supersedes traditional marketing methods; especially in that first instance, when a guest initially checks-out your property.

Whilst showcasing your Scottish holiday home with photographs and enticing descriptions is important, bear in mind that these things (alone) do not guarantee trust and credibility. Research tells us that 89% of short-term rental bookings fail at the payment hurdle; meaning that building consumer confidence should in fact be of utmost priority to you and your business.

I-PRAC: The Bridge of Trust Between You and Your Guests

Founded by Chris Maughan, I-PRAC guarantees 100% protection against property rental fraud.

As well as founding I-PRAC, Chris has been operating in the short-term rental sector as an industry leader for decades. He says“This is a fantastic opportunity for members of the ASSC to ensure guests are booking into their properties with confidence, knowing that their money and welfare is 100% protected. It’s crucial to know, that as a result of being I-PRAC Approved, agencies and property owners worldwide, have reported that their conversion rates have sky-rocketed, almost immediately. What better way to rebuild the Scottish STR industry post COVID-19; and at the same time, guarantee a greater number of bookings as well? It’s a win-win all round; and I’m delighted to be working with ASSC on this initiative”. 

After getting to know Chris and his team, we’ve learned that the experts at I-PRAC have spent years perfecting their verification process. They understand that it takes more than a Google search or word-of-mouth reviews to safely mark a property or property owner as ‘legitimate’, and how important it is for guests during the booking process.

By employing professionals and combining this with cutting-edge technology, I-PRAC has introduced a much-needed solution for the self-catering and short-term rental industry, particularly during these extraordinary times (when we need it most). The company’s approval certification is recognised by travellers and industry professionals worldwide, meaning that it can enable businesses like yours to thrive, even in a post-COVID world.

I-PRAC is offering FREE approval certification, subject to the verification process, for ASSC Members.

With your free I-PRAC approval, you will receive:

  • An official I-PRAC logo to display online
  • A unique I-PRAC ID number for travellers’ search
  • An official I-PRAC profile page to showcase your properties
