How technology can help you run a vacation rental business successfully

Mar 13, 2020 | Homeowner Tips

Technology has had a huge impact on the world today. In fact it has become a necessity in many ways, thanks to the convenience it offers to all of us. In the vacation rental business, specialised softwares have streamlined various aspects of vacation rentals such as operations, distribution, marketing , guest check-in & check-out process and so much more.

Bringing latest technology to their vacation rentals have enabled multi-fold growth to homeowners in breakneck speed, which couldn’t have been possible otherwise.

So, if you’re running your vacation rental property the old fashioned way and want to understand how technology can help you transform your the vacation rental business, read through to know more about the opportunities technology presents to you –

Smooth workflows

Long gone are the manual bookkeeping days! You no longer need to physically maintain your guest information or even struggle using an excel sheet to maintain the record. No more messy spreadsheets, where you struggle to make sense of the data after a while.

So, what’s the alternative? Well, the new age data management system that most vacation rental service managers offer streamlines your workflows and makes your data management more efficient.

Calendar management

No more double bookings. Yes! You no longer need to cancel your guest bookings due to wrong calendar management. With a centralized booking system, you get the comfort of arranging everything from one central hub. The robust APIs update your calendar as and when you receive a booking, ensure that the booking dates are blocked and not available for other guests.

Better visibility

As a homeowner, you would know that the success of your vacation rental depends on getting as much visibility as possible for your property. Therefore, listing your property on one or two rental websites never gets the attention it deserves, which could result in low occupancy rates.

Now, property management services have the ability to distribute your property listing to various channels and rental websites in a matter of a few minutes. This helps promote your property in as many places as possible that will help you increase your occupancy and maximise your income.

We want to take this opportunity to introduce you to our service. At Belvilla, we go above and beyond to bring your property the best possible exposure throughout the year via search engine optimization, digital advertisements on Facebook, Google and distributing your listing across 2,000+ websites including Booking.com, Airbnb, Expedia, Tripadvisor, Homeaway, Casamundo & other rental platforms. Just talk to one of our rental experts today and understand how we can work together to bring more bookings to your property.

Save time

Time is money. So, by saving time, you end up saving money and that’s exactly what technology helps you do. If you automate some of your channel management process, you can get to spend a lot of time on other aspects of your business that require your focus. You can also spend more time understanding how you can improve the overall experience for the guests staying in your property instead of focusing on things that won’t help you grow.

Overall, if you wish to expand and grow your vacation rental business, then it makes absolutely sense to invest in technology to manage your property. At Belvilla, we’ve developed cutting edge innovations across booking, customer experience, revenue management and other areas of vacation rental business. We also make use of IoT and SMART home devices to enhance the guest experience. So, if you’re looking at technology to help you better manage your vacation rental, just set up a free consultation call with one of our experts today to learn more about it.
