Tips for entries on AirBnB

With a Channel Manager, renting your Bed & Breakfast is even easier

When you leave your apartment, it is lucrative to offer it on various external booking channels. One of the most used booking channels is AirBnB. This platform was established in 2008 with the aim of making it more accessible to private individuals. Nowadays, so many holiday homes are offered on AirBnB. Fortunately, there are a number of useful tools that can be used to increase the occupancy of your accommodation. We list the most important tips for offering your AirBnB.

Have your accommodation photographed by a professional photographer

When you offer your property on AirBnB, the use of the photos is essential. These images immediately give potential guests a first impression of the space. Based on this first impression, they will choose to stay on the page. Or course you do not want the latter. Professional photos are therefore certainly not a luxury. Good photos show that your home is clean and comfortable. In addition, potential guests in these photos should see the most important details of the house. Is there something that makes your apartment or home unique? Make sure you clearly show this.

Describe what makes your accommodation special

Many travelers use AirBnB because they are looking for a room in a tourist area. Use the description of what makes this Bed & Breakfast so special. This could for example be the good location of the house, but also the interesting historical background of the building. Each accommodation has its own plus points.

Choose a catchy title

When you have determined what makes your space unique, it is important to use this information in your AirBnB page. There will be many providers who advertise generic key words such as 'spacious', 'light' and 'centrally located'. With this you will not notice. Opt for a title that appeals to the imagination and indicates why your AirBnB offers guests, not just a complete experience.

Use an AirBnB Channel Manager

It may sound complicated: the use of AirBnB Channel Manager. Nevertheless, a B&B Channel Manager can also offer a solution for individuals. By means of this software you can quickly and easily make changes to the AirBnB page that you have placed. For example, new room prices are implemented immediately. But the availability of your accommodation can also be adjusted by means of this user-friendly software. This prevents overbookings, a problem that can cause many additional costs. If you do not want AirBnB, but also on other external booking channels, there is a risk that your accommodation will be twice. By using an AirBnB Channel Manager, all external booking channels are linked via the Property Management System. When your space is booked through one of these channels, availability will be changed immediately on all linked channels. This ensures that your B & B can never be overbooked again, which prevents disappointment and frustration among potential guests. The accommodation will also be offered as soon as available.
