You have one or more holiday accommodations which you rent out, and you want to gain more return on investment, but it is not your core business. The trend in the private holiday accommodation market is that people want to do more and more themselves. Control over the process and over the guests staying in your accommodation(s) is more important. But, since you do not have much time besides your other activities, you cannot pay as much attention to your holiday accommodation(s) and bookings as you would like. Consequences are lower occupancy, double bookings and all the related stress.
The most important success factors in renting out private holiday accommodations are:
- Number of bookings, the higher the occupancy rate, the higher the return on investment. A correct (online) marketing can help with this.
- Perfect renting, double bookings cost a lot of money, and guests
- Easy to rent without investing a lot of time
- Low maintenance costs on your homes by checking who is staying in your home. (direct contact with your guests).
