Maybe you want to make it explicit there’s no TV or let guests know they might see Misty, your Golden Retriever, hanging around the property. Specifics like these can be potential deal breakers for some travelers—or further enticements for others. Either way, it’s the kind of information travelers appreciate knowing before they decide if your home is the right fit for their trip.
And now, there are more ways than ever before to establish crystal clear expectations with travelers before they book, setting you both up for happier trips, with smoother communication.
You can rely on your existing House Rules to create guidelines potential guests must follow in order to stay at your space, letting them know whether you allow smoking or parties, for instance. In addition, we’re introducing a new tool that let you share even more important details about your home that travelers need to acknowledge before booking. Together, these tools will help you portray your space at its most realistic best.
Here’s how to update your listing for more clarity with guests in 5 easy steps:
- Add must-know details about your home
Head to the House Rules section of your Manage Listing page to enhance your listing with more specifics.
- Select the aspects that apply to your space
We’ve made it easy for you to let potential guests know about details such as parking, pets, and stairs.
- Write in more information
Once you select the details that pertain to your space, you’ll have the chance to add additional details.
- Put yourself in potential guests’ shoes
For every section, you can use up to 140 characters to describe that feature of your space in more detail. Think about the kind of tactical advice you’d want to know if you were visiting your home for the first time. What do guests need to know ahead of time or plan for?
- Save your updates
Be sure to save your additions, and they’ll be added to your listing. Potential guests will need to acknowledge these, in addition to your House Rules, before they can book your space.
