I think one of the reasons why vacation rentals have not caught on as rapidly as many would have thought, is there are too many choices and we don’t have enough time to make what we think is a great decision.

We want to follow through on the idea to rent a nice house, with certain amenities, in a certain area, for a certain amount of time.  Then, within a reasonable amount of time, see what vacation rentals are available, reserve a vacation rental, get a confirmation email and get back to work.

Sad to say this isn’t happening right now with vacation rentals.

The sooner the industry figures out how to quicken this process the better it will be and the renter (you and I) will reap the benefits.

So as we wait for (push) the industry, hopefully, can make the process easier and more enjoyable for you.

Tell me how you would make the process of renting faster and easier.

More to come.

Make some trails!

    As a vacation renter, I always try and answer an enquiry as quickly as possible, within a few hours max usually. I also take credit card payments so that things are easy for the renter without them having to organise time consuming and costly bank transfers.

    I think that the key to FINDING the ideal vacation rental is using a vacation rental website that has a good SEARCH tool. I like the one we have on……you can just start with a simple general destination, then narrow it down by date, by #bedrooms, does it have a pool, is there a beach, etc etc. It’s SO easy to find exactly what you’re looking for within seconds.

    Probably not a comment that will go down too well (and I’m very biased because of what I do) but online booking works so much better for the consumer.

    We work in an area where we take booking for an apartments, often as a direct alternative to a hotel. Making the property available to book instantly, with all pricing information, makes a big difference.
