In this video: explanation of calendar key, how to update and how to edit the availability calendar.
Searching for a holiday can be time-consuming, especially when your plans aren’t flexible and you have specific dates in mind. There’s nothing worse for travellers after finding the right place to stay and requesting to book it, to then discover that it isn’t available.
In fact, out-of-date calendars are a massive time-waster and the number one guest complaint. Plus they’re a sure-fire way of missing out on bookings.
Easy to update
But the good news is it’s really easy to keep your calendar up to date on Holiday Lettings and make sure you maximise your booking opportunities.
- Update your home description and summary for search results to say you’ve got some late availability. Add an incentive or two (see below) to grab the reader’s attention and don’t forget to mention any upcoming events in your area.
- Offer an incentive, such as organising car hire, free tickets to a local attraction or even a jam-packed welcome hamper on arrival in the weeks you’d like to fill.
