The UK's #1 glamping brand

Wigwam Holidays is the UK’s number 1 glamping brand and one of the leading vendors in the European glamping market. The company launched back in 2000 - back when no-one had really heard of 'glamping'! They have one simple core purpose: to provide Great Holidays in the Great Outdoors, and it's this simple promise that keeps visitors coming back time and again with the promise of low cost, high quality holidays. 

Client brief

We first met Charles Gulland, the Owner and Founder of Wigwam Holidays and its sister company Wigwam Cablins, back in 2008. Charles was looking to develop his own in house online booking system to allow customers from all over the world to book glamping across his network of glamping sites around the UK.

The sites are all independently owned and Wigeam Holidays needed to develop a public online booking system, a management portal for head office staff and a portal for the site owners to view and manage their bookings

We have worked with the team at Wigwam Holidays since 2009, the booking system has evolved massively durimg this time and the functionality has become increasingly sophisticated, particularly the reporting.
