Increase your chances of renting your home!

Renting out your property can bring you interesting additional income, but it is not always easy to fill your booking calendar! The competition is tough, whether it is with other lodging possibilities (hotels, campgrounds…) or with other BnB accommodations. So, how can you stand out from the crowd and fill your booking calendar more easily? Here are our tips!

Take care of your ad

and your photos

The visual of your ad is your major asset. It is your first contact with the client and will allow you to arouse the interest of your potential tenants. We advise you to create a very complete ad: description, photos, reviews, personal profile… This will allow you to stand out from the competition. To create a successful ad, don’t hesitate to take the necessary time. How to do it? We have thought of everything. Our article “Our advices to make a good ad” will allow you to deepen and refine its realization in an expert way.

Keep you ad up to date

and availability dates

Once your property is online, it is necessary to keep your ad up to date. Remember that it is your first contact with travelers! Your ad must be accurate to avoid disappointment of your tenants: let’s imagine that you have changed the decoration or that the Jacuzzi is no longer available, your tenants will probably be unhappy! Updating the information and pohots in your ad will avoid the prejudice of a bad review. Remember also to do this for the dates of availability of your property, if possible well in advance. This will allow you to get organized, and your customers will be able to anticipate the planning of their trip. You will then be able to win new reservations!

Target your

potential travelers

Your property has its own particularities that will make it more suitable for certain categories of travelers. For example, a couple and a family do not have the same search criteria (surface, equipment, decoration…). Ask yourself the right questions when trying to define what type of tenant your property would suit. Because it is by targeting your clientele that you will enhance your rental. You will then gain in reservations! To help you to define your target and to seduce this one go on our article “How to target and attract your customers?”.

Adapt your prices to

the season

Would you pay as much for a beach house in winter as you would in summer? Probably not! The same goes for your tenants. There are high, medium and low seasons, often modulated by school holidays. As an owner, you must take into account the influx of tourists and the attractiveness of the seasons to define the price of your rental. To do this, consider looking at the prices posted by your competitors. Other factors such as the main activities in your city, the location of the property, the size of the house and its particularities are to be taken into account.


your reception

By following these tips, you will undoubtedly succeed in filling your booking calendar. But don’t forget that your travelers’ satisfaction is the key to your success! Because a satisfied customer is a customer who will recommend you and who will be likely to come back.

Is investing in a hot tub a good idea?

Who has never dreamed of sipping a glass of champagne in a private Jacuzzi? It’s a luxury many would like to enjoy, even if it’s just for a night.

Having a Jacuzzi in your hotel can add real value to your property. Why?
For your customers, it’s a shocking argument that could trigger an immediate love affair. For you, it’s a way to stand out from the competition and better fill your booking schedule. So, is it worthwhile for a hotel to invest in a private Jacuzzi for its rooms?

A jacuzzi

how much does it cost ?

How much does a hot tub cost? It all depends on what you choose. There are several ranges of jacuzzis with different options (jets, lights, number of places…) Here are their average prices:

  • Above ground : 10 000 euros
  • Built-in: 13 500 euros

The installation cost varies according to the model, the location and the accessibility to install it. Therefore, prices can easily climb from 900 euros to 2700 euros. Attention: you must imperatively check the solidity of the ground! Otherwise it will be necessary to pour a concrete slab (100 euros/m²). Do not hesitate to ask your salesman for information. He will also be able to advise you on the proper maintenance of your Jacuzzi (cleaning, changing filters…) or inform you on water and electricity consumption.

You can also opt for a less expensive alternative which is none other than the Jacuzzi bath. Its price varies between 1 000 euros and 3 000 euros. This one is therefore more accessible in terms of price (it is mainly intended to be installed in private homes), you will still lose a little in prestige.

How to make the investment

profitable ?

Indeed, having one (or more) Jacuzzi(s) in your hotel is an investment, but it can be very profitable. Offering a private Jacuzzi in a room will allow you to increase the price of the nightly stay. Your guests will be willing to pay more to enjoy the comfort and luxury of this room. They will surely have to do this in advance, as their reservation schedule will most likely be full.

Indeed, rooms with Jacuzzi are very much in demand. On the net, many articles list hotels with this equipment. Platforms like Staycation can also allow you to highlight this exceptional asset!

An asset for your

hotel's image

The Jacuzzi is therefore a very sought-after luxury equipment because it is a call to romance for couples wishing an intimate setting (discover here our article “target and attract your customers”).

Your guests will be able to promote your hotel and its special room, for example by posting photos on social networks.

You can also promote your room with Jacuzzi on your hotel’s website or on various reservation websites. This will allow you to enhance the image of your hotel and to stand out from the competition.

Investing in a Jacuzzi can be worth it (and the cost!), because it will allow you to increase the standing of your hotel, to have a high occupancy rate for the room concerned, but also to benefit from a nice image towards your potential customers.

Finally, to convey the identity of your establishment, we advise you to create the website of your hotel, an essential element nowadays.

Subletting your home on Bnb platforms... how does it work?

You’re ready to go on vacation and your suitcase is packed. Your home will remain empty for a while… And what a shame to have to pay the rent anyway! Rental platforms (like AirbnbAbritelGuestToGuest…) are attracted to you, but you don’t know if you have the right to sublet your accommodation? Indeed, subletting is a complex subject and full of restrictions! In this article we explain how subletting works and give you tips on how to sublet without hassle.

What is

subletting ?

Subletting is defined as the reception of individuals in your home in exchange for a fee.

By paying for your accommodation, you become the manager: you define the rooms offered, the price and choose the tenants. Be careful, there are some subtleties. For example, the proposed rent cannot exceed the one you pay to your landlord. Indeed, by proposing a sublease you do not have all the choices. The law of July 6, 1989 reminds you: without the agreement of your landlord, subletting is forbidden!

Law of July 6, 1989


to sublet ?

In order to sublet legally, you must therefore obtain the agreement of your landlord. To do so, you must send him a written request, by registered mail, including the proposed rent. Do not take your request for granted! Indeed, the landlord has the right to refuse without justification. So be careful! To put all the chances on your side, you can propose to your landlord to share with him the income generated by the subletting (for example 20% of the amount).

Deciding to sublet without his agreement is at your own risk since you risk losing your accommodation without notice. And that’s not all: the subtenant also has a say. It is mandatory to send him the authorization of the landlord and a copy of the current lease. We strongly advise you to obtain the agreement of your landlord and to establish a sublease contract with him (amount, payment date, obligations, conditions of restitution, duration…). This is a necessary insurance because you are responsible for the sub-tenant and his actions.
