Ever turned up at a vacation rental and been faced with a welcome book stuffed with local attraction flyers, brochures, notes, menus, maps and more? Do you wish you could cut to the chase? In fact don’t you wish you had access to it before you left for your vacation? Isn’t it about time this information was online? Well now it can be with listings on Getaway Earth. Get the info added to your rental listing for renters to access online before and during their holiday.
The Power of Local Knowledge
Many owners bought a property in an area because they loved staying there themselves. So they know the best local restaurants, shops and activities. Why not share that knowledge with potential renters by putting it online? For the holidaymaker, no longer do you have to wait until you have arrived at a destination to see what’s around, owners can show you that on the internet. Which is the best seafood restaurant? Where is the quietest beach? Where is the nearest supermarket? Find out before you leave!
So How Does it Actually Work?
For owners, it’s simple – once logged in you can add any ‘point of interest’ within minutes, in a very similar way to adding a property. To enhance the value, you can add photos, a weblink, video and text.
For renters it’s also simple. When you view a property you’ll see the owners pick of restaurants, shops and other activities in the surrounding area.
You’re Joking Right, Why Not Just Use Trip Advisor?
Ah but you’ve missed the point! Trip Advisor is mass. It’s everyone’s opinion on just about anything in town. With owner recommendations you have something personal and usually the owner has been there many times. It’s niche not mass. It’s a recommendation formed over time, not at one point in time. And let’s face it, on holiday we don’t have the luxury of sampling every restaurant in town, we want just a few to choose from. That’s the beauty of the owner’s local knowledge.
See it in Action
We’re seeing some great examples on our site already; have a look at a few of these…
We believe it adds something extra to the renter experience and allows owners another way of selling their rental. We like to hear whether you agree so feel free to leave us a comment…
