What is Dynamic Pricing?
Knowing what to charge for your rental property on Airbnb or any other platform can be a complex challenge for many hosts.
It's a time-consuming process and will depend upon your end-goal of maximising revenue or bookings
It's important to remember that pricing tools are not necessarily designed to make you more money. Put simply, they are used to optimise your competitive pricing levels to, in turn, maximise booking potential and occupancy levels.
