One Cost Director, Paul Corner adds;
“This has significant benefits for One Cost and our clients as, due to the size of the properties, our buying power grows rapidly and significantly. What is encouraging is the level of savings we have been able to identify for these businesses. This gives us great confidence that we can deliver substantial benefits for these properties.
We are keen to talk to other independent London hoteliers who are looking to improve margin as we feel certain that we can identify huge profit opportunities.”
I was recommended to use One Cost by a business associate and have now been using the service for about 9 months. Having previously been part of a big buying group where we were just a number, I thought One Cost would be a similar service. I could not be more wrong!
Kevin has had a huge impact on our business in both time and cost saving, his attention to detail is exemplary and the best part of all is that it doesn’t cost us money only saves us money! In these times of constant price increases this is a fantastic outcome.
Thank you Kevin and the whole One Cost team for your fresh approach.

We’re focused on saving money for your business, on gas, electricity and telecommunications.
Each year we reduce our customers bills by hundreds of thousands of pounds:
- Save Money – One Cost’s Utility Broker’s buying power means we can negotiate prices that are often lower than suppliers own renewal rates
- Free Service – One Cost’s Utility Broker’s expertise in contract renewal generates income from the utility companies, so there are no direct costs to you.
Don’t be caught out – stay in control of your costs. Approximately 90,000 commercial customer contracts expire every month. If you don’t notify your supplier, they can automatically renew your contract and lock you in at a higher rate.
With our Utility Broker’s straightforward service, you’ll get a reminder four months in advance with a range of money saving renewal options. There’s no obligation – it’s a totally free service, providing free information, and then you’re completely free to choose your own supplier.

One Cost has made a significant contribution to margin improvement by saving our business time and money. The level of client care and ongoing support is excellent and their team provide a very personal service.
Being a group of restaurants we can receive literally hundreds of invoices per site, every month. The One Cost online monthly reporting provides our business with full purchasing visibility, at the click of a button. The way they provide this information gives us ongoing cost management and profit improvement. Their passion for client satisfaction and strong relationships with the supply chain is quite unique in their sector.
One Cost promised to identify savings with no trade off in quality and that is certainly what they have done for us. I have recommended their services to other hospitality businesses.
Carlo Bragagnini – Director – San Marco Group
Having now worked with One Cost for the past 6 months, the energy they put into providing a service which is quite unique to the industry in working towards finding savings and continually controlling supplier costs is astounding.
The amounts I have saved have been considerable and the input required to achieve this from my part is almost none now. They come highly recommended.

Typically, credit card payments are made in the currency where the transaction occurred and converted later to the buyer’s home currency, with the cardholder paying a conversion fee.
Now there’s a smart alternative: Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) from Elavon.
DCC will improve service for your international customers as they will know exactly what their total purchase is in their home currency at the time you process the transaction. Conversion rates are typically much more competitive than those at money exchange booths or hotels. Each receipt shows the purchase amount in your currency, the conversion rate,and the total amount in the cardholder’s home currency.
Merchant Benefits as DCC pays you back: DCC is absolutely free via One Cost and all DCC transactions will create a revenue stream! This works by our merchant provider sharing the income generated by processing foreign transactions, by rebating a percentage of the conversion rate to you on your monthly processing statement. The more international business you do, the more you improve your bottom line.
Saving Money – to see if One Cost can improve your credit card rates whist offering DCC as well, simply contact us to register your interest. Remember, you dont need to change banks if you switch your merchant provider.
