Using Template Builders For A Vacation Rental Website

the best website template builders for your new vacation rental website

Whilst the majority of vacation rental home owners still rely on major listing sites and OTAs, it is imperative for any serious property manager to have their own website.

As leading OTAs and listing sites charge anything from 3-20% in booking commissions (travellers in many cases are also charged fees) owners are increasingly looking at pointing guests to their own website to book direct without charge.

Did you know many guests will search for your website after seeing a listing on an OTA (online travel agency) or major listing site?

Choosing a Website Builder

When considering any website CMS (content management system) a vacation rental owner or property manager will need to consider their time resources, technical knowledge, budget and future goals.

A platform like WordPress is an excellent resource and is used by millions of businesses around the world.

However it may not appeal to those with restricted time.

The main advantages of using templated sites for your business:

  • Quick to publish your site
  • Easy to learn
  • Hosting included
  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Encourage direct booking and reduce booking commissions
  • May include a channel manager to list your property on large listing sites (Airbnb, Booking, Tripadvisor, HomeAway, etc)
