Hoseasons has vastly expanded its cottages portfolio by adding more than 9,000 properties from its sister Cottages4you brand.

The domestic tour operator now has 11,313 UK cottages available under its Hoseasons brand, via hoseasons.co.uk/agents.

Previously the extra stock was only available via its sister consumer-facing website cottages4you.co.uk.

Head of trade sales Tariq Khan said the move demonstrated the operator’s commitment to giving agents and consumers the widest possible choice in the domestic breaks market.

He added: “Bringing everything together in one place simplifies the booking process for agents and reinforces the strength of the Hoseasons brand.”

The operator has just recorded its fifth record summer in a row.

Sales of its lodges and parks products were up 10% during the school summer holidays compared to the same period last year. The operator’s entire range, including boating, were 5% up for the same year on year period.
