Short-term rentals are taking the hotel industry by storm. If you want to be part of the revolution, the first step is to upgrade your Airbnb listing.
According to Morgan Stanley Research, Airbnb is expected to book 100 million stays by the end of this year. In addition, business traveler bookings on the site will increase by 18%. It’s no secret that this short-term rental juggernaut is now on par with global hotel brands. Therefore, Airbnb listings must adapt to offer the same luxuries and conveniences as hotel suites. If you’re a current or aspiring host, below are some easy ways that you can upgrade your Airbnb listing and increase bookings.
No guest will tolerate a bad-smelling home or apartment. To ward off offensive odors, be sure to place some potpourri by the door and some no-burn incense in the bathroom.
Traveling with liquids is so complicated these days, we typically leave our standard shower products at home. By providing body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and shave kits for your guests, you’re saving them the unwanted hassle of squeezing everything into 3-ounce bottles.
A fresh set of towels is a standard feature of Airbnb rentals. However, to attain stellar reviews, you may need to upgrade your amenities. Set them up with a crisp, hotel-quality bathrobe—such as this absorbent, 100% cotton Kimono robe—along with some matching closed toe slippers for added comfort.
What are we constantly doing when we’re traveling? Charging. So, if you have a spare table in your home or apartment, set up a small charging station with a convenient multi-port USB wall charger.
Similar to hotels, it’s the little details, conveniences, and amenities that transform a typical stay into a luxurious holiday. Upgrade your Airbnb listing using these simple tips, and you’ll reap the benefits in no time.
