With growing electric vehicle adoption, installing a level 2 destination charger is a great way to attract EV owners to book your vacation rental home. We have added map filtering for EV chargers so that guests can quickly identify properties that have an EV charger installed. EV owners and guests renting from an EV fleet such Hertz will appreciate the ability to charge overnight--while they sleep--and wake up to a full charge, instead of having to waste precious vacation time to drive to a DC fast charger. To add this amenity go to: Settings >> Website >> Descriptive Text & Amenities.

Liability coverage of $1 million for accidents and injury to a renter and third parties during their stay is now included in all new damage protection plans. In addition to damage protection for your vacation home's contents, liability coverage fills the gaps in traditional homeowner's insurance policies by covering liability claims that arise specifically from vacation rental activities. Bedbug Protection is also now included, covering the loss of income incurred in the eradication of a bed bug incident. Please note that we could not add these coverages for free, so the cost of policies has increased. For more information please contact Customer Care.

Photos of your rental's outdoor seating are a must-have and enable guests to visualize where they can relax after a long day at the beach, on the lake, or on the slopes. Patios, roof-tops, lounges, decks, or anywhere else with a breeze and a view will inspire more direct bookings!

Are you still still charging hefty refundable damage deposits to guests? Our years of experience and conversations with owners tell us that refundable deposits of $250 or more can cause guests to book elsewhere! A low-cost damage waiver is more palatable for guests, while also being more practical for managers since there is no refund to manage.

Use our software to encourage more bookings by offering guests an inexpensive damage waiver when they go to make a reservation.
