Looking Ahead to 2019 – LSI Tools Launches New GuestWeb Feature to Enhance Future Bookings
As a property manager at the height of the summer season, chances are that you are focused on your 2018 reservations. The summertime weeks are when many vacation rental companies across the country are at their busiest, with waves of seasonal guests, regular maintenance and housekeeping duties, and addressing potential issues with homes and vacationers, one at a time.
But as someone who is ingrained in managing vacation rentals, you likely have the 2019 season continually at the back of your mind as well. Property agreement renewals are just around the corner, after all, and it’s never too early to start thinking about filling up those 2019 weeks.
We know that you have an overflowing plate during the summer, but how can you encourage guests to reserve their home for next year? Or show owners that you are actively acquiring new reservations for their home for 2019? And how can you accomplish all this without diverting your attention away from the busy summer season at hand?
This is exactly why LSI Tools is excited to share our new feature for GuestWeb – the Rebooking Add-on.
This automated tool allows your guests to easily and efficiently reserve their vacation home for the same week next year with just two clicks, and with no effort or extra time required by your reservations team.
Sound tempting? Here’s how it works.
With the Rebooking Add-on, your company’s GuestWeb dashboard will have a clear and readily available link that will encourage guests to reserve their same home for the same time in the following year. Guests can click on this link at any point during their stay, or during your specified timeframe.
Once they click on this link, they will be directed to a customizable Request Form with all of their information automaticaly pulled from your property management software, such as dates of stay, estimated price, contact info, and so on. From there, they click “Submit,’ and their request is complete.
Yup, it’s that easy.
We are big fans of the simplicity of this add-on, as well as the potential benefits across the board. With the new Rebooking Add-on, you can accomplish the following:
- Generate extra income via optional advanced booking fees
- Fill more 2019 weeks, securing income for the upcoming vacation season
- Promote happy homeowners by filling multiple weeks a full year in advance – (and just in time for property management agreement renewal season, too!)
- Provide your guests an easy and efficient way to secure their home for next year
- Create a growing roster of repeat guests for years
- Save your reservations team ample time on the phone fielding advance reservation requests
- Increase your advanced year reservations even more by coupling the Rebooking Add-on with a new Checkout Email in ResMail Pro!
Best of all, once your Rebooking Add-on is up and running, you can focus on 2018, and let GuestWeb encourage those advance 2019 reservations for you!
As you know, we pride ourselves on tools that make life easier for our clients, and we’re excited to launch this new GuestWeb addition that boosts income with little effort. Convenient for guests – as well as your staff – the new Rebooking Add-On boosts your bottom line with just a couple of clicks.
