THE DANGERS OF LISTING SPECIALS ON RETAIL PLATFORMS!

 

Do you ever list specials on the big holiday rental booking platforms? During the off peak periods, property owners like you are looking for solutions to the big drop in revenue.

The only problem with listing specials on the big retail platforms, however, is that you reduce your opportunity for full paying bookings on those sites. People go to those retail platforms, ready and prepared to pay full price for a stay. So if you run a special in addition to your retail listing, you are undercutting your own listing. You are also devaluing your holiday rental if customers identify your listing as being the same property that was advertising a special. This means that you might actually be turning away customers.

There is nothing wrong with listing specials or deals, but these retail platforms are the wrong places to be doing it.

You are better off using a niche holiday deals website like Holiday House Deals, which is completely separate, so that it complements (rather than hinders) your holiday rental income. We also ensure that your holiday rental name isn’t advertised in a deal or special because doing so can devalue your business and offering. We ensure that customers can connect with you directly through our website, however you are kept anonymous until you’re ready to seal the deal.
