Pricing is never easy. But what we do know is that it’s important to adapt it to the best season for you.

1. How to define prices?

First, start looking at similar rentals around you. Then the addresses offering the same services as you. And don’t forget to check hotel prices to make sure they’re not too high in comparison.

Next, define the ideal season to visit you. For example, we have a favorite address in the mountains. This is out of budget in summer and throughout the ski season. But it is very accessible outside these dates. You can easily go from 700€ a week to over 2000€ in high season. In this way, owners can be sure of renting out their property even in the off-season! Think about it and find out what’s going on around you. There’s no point in renting out your home at full price when everything in the surrounding area is closed or impassable, and you’ll get nothing but negative reviews.

And don’t forget to specify in your ad what you can and can’t do depending on the season. Returning to our example, the chalet owner has clearly indicated the ski periods and activities in his village. He will specify this before you finalize your booking, so that you know exactly what to expect.

2. Encourage repeat business

If you’re used to using sites like Airbnb, you know that they take a percentage of your rental as a ” service fee “. This can be an obstacle for some travelers.

Indeed, on weekly rentals, you can quickly end up with €200 in service charges, pushing the bill over €1,000. As a result, you may lose customers who didn’t expect to pay so much.

That’s why we advise you, when a stay has gone well, to tell customers to come directly to you ifthey want to come back. If they do, they save a little and you get the assurance of having tenants you can trust.

Now all you have to do is make your prices fluctuate with the seasons! And if you also want some
