TIPS TO MAKE YOUR RENTAL MORE ECO-FRIENDLY

published Comments

The Sustainable Development Week is a good opportunity to reflect on the daily actions that would make seasonal rentals more eco-friendly. Especially as 87%* of travelers want to opt for environmentally friendly rentals!

ACCOMPANY THE TRAVELLER

During the holidays, the travellers can sometimes lose good habits.

Help them stay on track by providing them with the necessary equipment for sorting waste : bins and sorting instructions.

And don’t hesitate to make them aware of daily actions :

  • turn off electrical appliances and lights

  • limit heating (especially in bedrooms)

  • wash at 30 degrees

Your eco-friendly commitment, through the products you provide, will be appreciate by your travellers :

  • organic or natural shampoo and shower gel, ideally in a dispenser that you fill every week

  • organic or natural dishwashing liquid and household products

And finally, display your commitment via :

  • a selection of local craftsmen and merchants to offer responsible consumption

  • a list of nature sites around you rental and information on how to respect and protect them

  • a list of alternative modes of transportation : local public transport timetables, bicycle rentals, and so on

ECO-FRIENDLY COMMITMENT

What could you do concretely in the management of your rentals ? Even the smallest gesture can make a difference.

Remember to use organic or homemade products for the household on a daily basis. White vinegar has never had such a popularity! Why not start making your own laundry detergent for household laundry while promoting natural drying.

As for energy, remember to turn down the heating between two travellers and to turn off the electrical appliances.

If your rental is surrounded by greenery, encourage biodiversity :

  • by choosing honey plants that produce nectar;

  • by installing animal shelters and highlighting them with labels explaining their usefulness (children will love it): small pile of wood, bird nest box, insect hotel, and so on

  • by choosing natural fertilizers

  • by leaving wilderness areas

Of course, share your actions (and your smile!) with your travellers by posting an "eco-friendly charter" in your rentals and sending it to them before their visit by email to redirect to your website.

How Rental Ninja can take your vacation rental business to the next level?

published Comments

Our partner Rental Ninja never stops improving and providing stunning additional features to BookingSync users!
If you were already fan of:
Statistics: helping you visually identify your strengths and ways of improvement
Accounting: automating your owners' and sub-contractors' invoicing
Mobile App: allowing you and your team to work smoothly on the move, keeping everyone updated
Guest App: delighting your guests with all useful details about your rental, delivered at the perfect time
We are pleased to announce that Rental Ninja is now available in English, French, Spanish and Italian! But that's not all!
Quickly discover the 3 new amazing features you'll love:

Pre Check-In

Stop spending hours each week mailing guests to ask for their arrival information, making sure they'd inform you about any special requests upon arrival, get things ready the proper way and avoid last minute inconveniences.

  • Let us contact them and follow-up by e-mail and SMS to get: their arrival time, transportation details, passport (number and/or picture) and confirmation of their contact details.

  • Then, they will have direct access to the Guest Mobile App containing every useful detail for their arrival and stay!

  • Do you use the self check-in? You'll be able to explain how to access the property, share the access codes and decide to share this only after the booking gets fully paid or at a specific time.

Tasks Management

Probably your everyday work is looking like this: hours spent on cleaning and maintenance logistics, picturing up and down with damages needing assistance, forwarding data to the workman, organizing cleanings the evening before due to last minute reservations, informing the cleaning staff everytime a stay gets extended…

Now:

  • Imagine being able to automatically assign your check-in, cleaning, check-out missions to the right people. But also create a last-minute mission because a fix is necessary. And all of this fully synchronized and notified to all your teammates!

  • A guest fills his pre check-in details? The associated check-in mission is updated and your check-in agent is notified on his phone!

  • Guests shorten or extend their stay? The associated cleaning mission will be shifted accordingly and your housekeeping staff informed!

Statistics in Accounting

Detailed statistics in Accounting will now allow you to easily identify parts of the business you can improve and better drive your business strategy:

  • Easily see how much money you earned on cleanings, and evaluate if you could hire internal cleaning staff instead of externalizing the service.

  • Understand the flow of the market, and see the consequences of the strategic changes you made to boost bookings from certain platforms or from our own website.
