Most vacation rental websites have a number of goals and objectives. It's common for things like 'showcase my products and services', 'provide expert local info for prospective guests', 'communicate my brand's ethos' to be main focuses of your site's content - all well and good.
However, the number one objective that we often use to measure the efficacy of a website is how many bookings come through.
Among the updates in December 2018, we updated the look and feel of the booking process and allowed email addresses to be stored against party members.
"Direct bookings" come, for example, through your own website and not via a 3rd party. The guest knows they are booking with your business and brand.
For November we added panoramic photography support, allowed general definition of maximum length of stay as well as tweaking the Booking iCal Feed to include changeover times.
We are delighted to have been chosen by Booking.com as a Premier Connectivity Partner in recognition of the fantastic integration and working relationship that Bookster has with Booking.com.
When logged into Bookster, look in your "settings" and for the "long stay discount" setting.
Modern day consumers are savvy when it comes to booking vacations online - which is great news for you and your holiday rental properties. Online bookings have become the norm and there are plenty of businesses that have sprung up to meet the demand.
Marketing channels are great for getting you bookings - but the commission can be tough to swallow. Bookster's promo code feature makes it easier to entice repeat guests to book direct.
