Promoting Your Rental with Booking Coupons
Online Booking Coupons are a great way to attract new guests, encourage repeat guests, increase referrals, and fill up slow seasonal periods.
Coupons come in three varieties, each offering a different redeemable amount, including:
40% Vacation Rental Desk users offer this type of coupon for their rentals. The average coupon amount ranges from $99-200.
Over 50% of all coupons created on Vacation Rental Desk use a percentage discount, and they usually fall between 10-25%.
6% of users implement this type of coupon, but it has the potential to be highly effective if used to fill a minimum stay requirement.
Booking Coupons for your vacation rental work the same way as other coupons do online at stores: Guests simply enter a code while booking online to get an instant discount at check-out.
Restrictions can be placed on Booking Coupons, including expiration dates and valid date intervals (for promoting seasonal periods).
