As you know, we’re here to help. That’s why we’ve done some research to find you the best tips for boosting your accommodation booking requests.

1. Offer fully-equipped accommodation

The most important thing when you move in is to feel at home. Offering fully-equipped accommodation is an important concept for many holidaymakers.

The most important thing? A good wifi connection, especially these days with working from home. Next comes a workspace. A room of your own, or a place you’ve set up yourself for the occasion.

Another good point? A functional, helpful kitchen: oven, microwave, fridge, pots and pans, crockery. Specifying it in your rental will attract potential customers.

2. Flexible cancellation and booking conditions

Another way to boost your bookings is to offer flexible booking.

With the new sanitary measures, a stand-alone entrance is a popular choice. The most in your favor? If you offer instant booking, your guests will book on a whim, and you won’t have to compete with other rental companies who might respond to their requests before you do. Play the instant card.

As far ascancellation is concerned, it’s up to you, but overly complex conditions or a non-guaranteed refund can be a deterrent to booking.

3. Boost your rental by accepting pets

Did you know? Searches for ” pets accepted ” rose by 65% in January 2021 (compared to the same period the year before).

So by making it clear that you
that you accept pets in your accommodation, you’ ll gain visibility and bookings.

If you’re a little reluctant to accept pets, you can start by limiting the list: dogs and cats account for around 80% of all pets. That’s more than enough.

If it’s the fur you’re worried about, you can ask for an extra cleaning fee and specify which part of the house you don’t want the pets to go in.

With these few tips, you should see your booking requests soar. Don’t hesitate to give us your feedback or tried-and-tested tips!
