All your messages with travelers who are interested in booking your property, or who have booked your property, are placed in your inbox.
A.The faster your respond to a traveler’s questions or booking request, the more often booking inquiries will turn into bookings for you, generating more income to you.
According to our research, booking inquiries that are answered within 3 hours typically convert into rentals at a rate of 300% higher than slower responses. This is because most travelers inquire into more than one property at a time, and the chances of them choosing to rent your property increases if you are the first property to respond to their inquiry.
We also suggest that you can engage with the traveler. If your property is not available for the dates requested, you should still reply to see if the travel dates are flexible. If you are able to respond quickly with alternative dates, you’re more likely to turn a booking inquiry into a booking.
A.Properties with at least 10 attractive photos, a current availability calendar, a rate schedule, and listings of any special rates or last minutes discounts are most likely to receive booking inquiries by travelers. Adding rate specials is one of the easiest ways for your property to stand out. Be sure that your listing contains all amenities that your property has. Travelers often narrow their search for properties by choosing the amenities they want, and you will be included in more research results if your amenity list is complete.
A.The two most common questions asked by travelers are 1) “Is your property available, and 2) how much will it cost to rent?” Make sure that your listing has a full rate schedule and an updated availability calendar to reduce booking inquiries that simply ask these questions, so you can receive inquiries from travelers who are looking to rent your property.
Make sure you respond to all booking inquiries within 3 hours of their submission. Typical AlwaysOnVacation property owners are able to convert 1 out of 4 booking inquiries, provided the inquiries are responded to within 3 hours. Always be sure to be polite and helpful. Remember, these are travelers that have options, and you want to make the rental of your property easy for the traveler.
A.Travelers that have stayed in your property can leave a property review on AlwaysOnVacation.com after their stay. After checking out of your property, all guests receive an email from AlwaysOnVacation, asking them about their stay and requesting that they submit a review of your property. We also encourage you to contact your guests after their stay directly to encourage them to submit a review!
A.If you feel a review contains abusive, offensive language, or inaccurate information, report the review to us by logging in to your account and select the “Abuse” link near the review. If you want to update your profile to address an issue raised in a review, update your property listing to address the issue. We encourage you to use reviews of your property as opportunities to improve your property listings and get more bookings!
