Pros over cons
Some worry that this can make you attract unsavoury people as guests. However it is hardly in a dishonest man’s plan to reserve a room prior where there is probably just the furniture is present. Also many sites ensure the request is authentic and you have to make a payment or let them keep a retainer. So stop worrying about prison escapees coming to stay at your place. Instead, talk to agents of these websites and get their advice on how you can prepare the place, have an easy booking system, welcome guests, provide what they request, if you are willing to provide food, how to do that and more. In a business like travel and tourism word of mouth is important and if tourists are happy with you what you offer they will definitely spread the word which will bring you more tourists.
Ensure the offer is authentic
Make sure you provide what you say; if you do not have certain options, let that also bementioned in the web. It is always better to make a customer feel great with your service than make them disappointed by not providing what you promised. Since your place is on the web, anyone can reserve it. So arrange everything to suit even the richest and most sophisticated traveller. Even though yours is not a fully profit-making venture, it is advisable to use similar guidelines in offering the property to customers. You can have minimal but functional furniture, added stuff like a mini-fridge, good commercial upholstery for public area seating and more to make it look like you are serious about this. More and more people are moving away from traditional travel trends and using the web to plan their vacations. If you play your cards right, you can benefit from these trends in the long term.
