Why You Should Build Your Own Cabin Rental Website
There are a lot of reasons to build and pay for a web designer to build you a cabin rental website whether it be for one cabin or many cabins you own.
For instance I had a client that was paying to advertise his four cabins on every third party website such as VRBO, Home Away, Flip Key, etc. I sat down and talked with him and told him that yes you need those third party websites to get rentals, but you should consider a website with aerial photos, videos and a well put together web design and a form to take reservation requests so he can call potential rental clients back and put a personal touch on his rentals through actual conversation over the phone. As of today 75 %-85 % of his rentals come through the form and get 3-4 requests per day sometimes.
Avoid VRBO/HomeAway/AirBnb Service Fees
Why pay a few extra hundred dollars on your next vacation rental? According to HomeAway & VRBO you don’t. The brilliant minds at VRBO/Homeaway have actually said “travelers don’t mind paying a service fee”. Well folks you are actually paying a Service Fee!
In January 2016 HomeAway & VRBO were bought out by corporate giant Expedia for 3.9 BILLION dollars. The next month they rolled out a new Service Fee that they are charging to travelers who book through their websites in an effort to be more like Airbnb. While Expedia said originally that the fee will range between 4% and 9%, more recently they’ve raised the service rates to 6% to 15%. AirBnb has already increased their service fees to 20%.
Testimonials and Reviews
The key to your cabin rental besides a website is reviews and staying in front of your clients and asking about their stay and to put a review online. This will keep you on top of the search engines among a few other things. A cabin rental website could be a one page landing page website or a standard 1o page website for more than one rental and descriptions of local travel information.
