Offering Extras - Maximising your holiday rental experience

Make your guests experience one they will never forget!

Getting away for a holiday or vacation can sometimes be the highlight of someones year. Carefully picking out the perfect property, imagining themselves there and enjoying the facilities and making memories. 

Once there though what is there to do? Lots of course but you may need to help guests see this so that they can enjoy the property and the surrounding area. Hopefully if they enjoy it they will return! 

Why not offer them some extras before they even arrive so that they can experience the whole package? When they have booked email them with your list of extras, have them displayed clearly on your website or discuss with them the choices over the phone.

What are extras?

Extras - little things that can take the ordinary to extraordinary. Create the most perfect experience and stay. Think a list of contact details for catering services to pampering services offered in the property. 

You do not need to actually book these for the guest but provide details of highly recommended services that can be booked by them for their stay. If a guest is booking the property for a special birthday celebration then they may really like to be guided towards some local caterers who could come and prepare an evening meal or host a dinner party. A hen party group may like the contact details of a suitable cocktail waiter or pampering team. 

You can contact relevant people, discuss your type of guest and see if they would like to offer their services and be promoted on your website. Some companies even offer commision to the property owner once a booking has been taken.
