How screening process ease hunting of suitable vacation rental?

Dec 5 , 2018 by HomeEscape

Screening for vacation rentals makes the process easier. It lands you over to the perfect vacation house you have been looking for. The screening ensures, that you get all your requirements up to the mark as soon as you reach your destination.

 The screening answers all important questions related to your needs. Common questions like:

  • Is the property suitable for children?
  • Is it property suitable for people with disabilities or elderly people?
  • Is the home in a safe neighborhood?
  • Is it at walking distance to [downtown, hiking trails.]

 You must have a confirmation of screenings even while you are putting up your queries. Sometimes the idea of suitability varies. The perspective might be different on both sides.

If you have a rental business, you must know that “honesty is the best policy”. If the property does not match the needs that have been put up. No matter how amazing your house is, an expected delivery is what needs to be ensured.

As a renter, look for specific details so that you do not get disappointed when you reach the venue.

Verify about the kitchen equipment if you are looking for home cooking. You should mention how well equipped you to want the kitchen to be. Spices, cooking utensils, and other cooking staples. Viewpoints on a “well-equipped kitchen” might vary.

In case you are the owner of the property, just know that “honesty is the best policy” and mention what you can and cannot provide.

Travelers appreciate honesty, and might even look to you when they come back sometime in future. Whereas misleading your customer might even leave you with a negative review!

Know about the area: get an overview of the general location and the amenities that are available.  You would obviously want to be informed if there is a property near water in the hills, or maybe skiing.

However, business owners must be ready to answer the following questions:

  • How close are you to common attractions and destinations?
  •  Grocery stores in the locality?
  • Whether there is a hospital or medical facility nearby?
  • Where could I rent a ski equipment or a snowmobile or waterskies or a boat!
  • About good restaurants in the area?
  • Distance from the airport?
  • Have all the recommended destinations listed

       2.   Information about local communication

Sometimes you have questions like:

  • I know the maximum occupancy is 6, but we are 6 adults and a 2-year-old child who would sleep with parents – would that be okay?
  • The property says there is only space for 2 cars but we are having 3. Could we park the third one outside on the street?
  • I came across a rule that said “no parties” but we were planning to host a small party of just 8 adults – no noise would be there. Is that fine?

For the owners, it is reasonable to offer certain exceptions to your rules. But you can make sure if you want a confirmation in advance whether you want to compromise or not. You might otherwise find yourself in a pressure zone to make exceptions when you wouldn’t really want to.

Different questions that the traveler has to answer:

  • In case of a different name on the reservation and credit card
  • If the home address is nearer to your property
  • If the number of travelers doesn’t match up with your occupancy levels (For example, if the traveler says they are 2 people, but they rented a 4-bedroom house).
  •  A huge number of people, even if the property accommodates large parties
