Touch Stay has recently announced a partnership with StayinBath.org, an association of more than 100 local independent accommodation providers based in Bath, one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations.

Touch Stay, the digital guest welcome book, has announced partnerships with a growing number of local independent accommodation associations in the US and UK looking for effective ways to collaborate and have a positive impact on the local visitor economy.

Originally marketed to vacation rental owners and managers but now also used by guesthouses and independently owned hotels, Touch Stay is anticipating a sales growth in the next 12-18 months to 15,000 properties; predominantly in the UK, United States, Canada and Australia. Touch Stay currently estimates that its digital guest welcome app reaches as many as 25,000 unique users a month. 

Touch Stay has recently announced a partnership with StayinBath.org, an association of more than 100 local independent accommodation providers based in Bath, one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations. 

Harry Tedstone, chair of the Bath Independent Guesthouse Association, which is behind the StayinBath.org initiative, said: “Through the partnership with Touch Stay, our members are easily able to connect with guests and provide information, discounts and incentives in ‘real time’ for the city’s many independent retailers, attractions and eateries. We believe that this ability to communicate with guests across the Touch Stay platform will help promote a local experience of our city as well as keeping guests within our ecosystem.” 

Touch Stay, founded in 2014 by business partners Andy McNulty and Joe Jones, is one of the longest standing digital guest welcome product startups to develop alongside the growing vacation and short-term rental industry. Andy Mcnulty, co-founder of Touch Stay, credits the company’s success to sustainable growth and a high focus on customer experience which has also resulted in strong customer loyalty.

McNulty states, “The reason that we’re seen so positively by users, is that we have a product that caters for virtually every need. A direct benefit of having been around for 4 years is that we have developed a ton of features that really suit our customers and in turn, really meets the needs of their guests.”
