What are the best emails for guests

Bookster has a clear philosophy for the booking process grounded in the best possible guest experience.

Instant booking

A booking should be confirmed by the actions of the guest, not by the property manager. 

This is critical for guests. 

If a guest can't book their holiday on your website, they will head back to Google faster than you can say "turnaround!".

Easy on any device

Guests should not have to get their laptop out to book your holiday rental.

It is highly likely that more than half of your guests are browsing your website on a mobile device of some description and need a responsive website that will work on any device.

Clear correspondence

Transactional emails are functional, should be clear and direct the guest on their booking journey. 

Bookster provides simple, branded options:

  • Booking confirmation 
  • Payment requests
  • Damage deposit requests
  • 1-day pre-arrival welcome emails. 

These have been carefully designed to ensure that the guest understands at a glance what they need to do, and when.

Simplify ongoing interactions

The guest needs to know where to go back to for viewing and updating their booking. 

This place should be easy to access and easy-to-use on any device.

Bookster has a Guest Area to perform that role. It is one of many features of our Property Management and Holiday Booking System designed exclusively for holiday rentals.

Marketing email tools

For property managers wishing to build relationships with guests, there are additional options to use the Marketing emails tool.

This uses bookings information to send personalised messages to guests pre- and post-arrival, post-departure, and for newsletters.

We've recommended 4 Guest Emails that can really help to improve your guest experience.

We can help you set up your email journeys, which will send out automatically.
