There are several types of travelers. Those who go on vacation to relax and activate the farniente mode from the very first minutes. And those who want to do it all, see it all and discover it all. You need to provide them with all the information they need based on their interests. Whether it’s relaxing places for some or physical and cultural activities for others.

1. On the rental ad

When you write your rental ad, it’s in your best interest to make it as attractive as possible, while sticking to the truth. Once you’ve described your home and its facilities, don’t hesitate to take time to describe the strengths of the surrounding area.

If you’re not sure how to get started, think about what you want and need to know when you go on vacation. All you have to do is adapt it to your rental.

Group outdoor activities together, indicating whether there are hiking trails or watering holes. Museums, theme parks and children’s activities. Finally, talk about the choice of restaurants, towns and villages to visit. You want your future holidaymakers to want to book with you, because they’re bound to find something they like.

2. When travelers are here

When travelers arrive, it’s essential that they find the information they’re looking for quickly.

In such cases, it’s best to tell them in person, but we recommend you use the StyQR welcome booklet instead.
The Around Me module is the ideal place to gather all the useful information you need about your surroundings. You’ll find categories such as transport, activities, restaurants, museums and monuments. From there, all you have to do is fill in the categories that correspond to your rental and tell us as much as you can.
Don’t hesitate to indicate opening hours, telephone numbers or prices in the comments section. There’s no limit to the number of locations you can list. This is a big plus, as it gives your travelers a real choice of different activities.
It’s also very easy to update, as all you have to do is add or remove a place of interest.

3. Sites offering activities
