How to fill those last-minute gaps in your calendar

bigstockphoto__Chairs_493215Got a few weeks left to fill this summer? It’s not too late to pack out your holiday home with guests. Here are a few ideas to boost those summer bookings.

  • 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.
