3. Memories that don’t break the bank – The cost of living is rising. Potential guests, especially those booking a family vacation, will be looking for ways to make the most out of their vacation without breaking the bank.
Offer guests better value for their money through the Xplorie program and help them create amazing memories for less, by including free passes and discounts to family-friendly activities in the cost of the rental.
4. Memories that don’t break the earth – Guest awareness of sustainability is reshaping travel, and many are now looking for alternative activities and attractions that don’t impact the environment.
Research shows eating and shopping at small businesses, visiting a landmark or heritage site, national parks, museums or cultural events, and outdoor activities are the top activities guests are interested in this year which have a positive impact on the local community.
Guests are swapping environmental impact for emotional impact and seek to immerse themselves in culture. Show these value-driven guests your beliefs align by partnering with local businesses, such as tour and attraction providers.
Make their stay memorable
Guests who have great experiences while staying in your vacation rental are going to remember it. This means they’ll be talking about your services and property at every family gathering and occasion in the future and unknowingly become one of your most powerful marketing tools.
So, excel at the basics. Keep the rental clean and in top shape. Ensure communication is quick, non-stop, and personalized with voice assist technology. Go above and beyond. Supply less common but equally essential amenities to guests, like a phone charger, in case they’ve forgotten theirs. All these little things show your guests you care a great deal about their stay.
Be what guests are looking for. Be memorable. Be connected. Be the home they return to after a day of exploring. Be the cozy corner where they’ll reconnect with a long-missed family member or friend. Be the comfortable bed they rest in from a day of action-packed activities. Be the foundation of an unforgettable vacation.
