How much exposure?
Have you wondered how much your holiday home is already exposed through advertising on online platforms?
All those lovely pictures, the inventory, the calendar and of course the map – it would not be too difficult for anyone with criminal intentions to target your home when it is unoccupied – or indeed when it is occupied and your guests are having a day at the playa.
Even more important then to protect the more sensitive information such as detailed directions to the property, your wifi password, access codes and instructions on amenities in the property. As a host and a guest of holiday rentals I have seen this information in various formats: either as part of a very detailed email, more professionally all bundled up in a pdf with images and maps or simply in text form via the online advertising platform’s messaging service.
These delivery methods are quite fragmented and not very effective as the information has to be printed out before departure and is not readily on hand. Once guests arrive there is usually a guestbook with further instructions and recommendations. This whole process could be a lot smoother with a secure link to an interactive Guest & Travel Guide which can be sent to guests before arrival and contains all the information they need before and during their stay. And it can be personalized with photos and videos and updated at any time – not just when the owners are at the property and make edits to a paper-based guidebook. So protect your property from too much online exposure and enhance the guest experience by creating an interactive Guest & Travel Guide!
