Airbnb guests are not looking for cookie-cutter accommodation options. They are discerning travelers frequently wanting one-of-a-kind experiences with personalized touches.
Great Airbnb hosts go the extra mile and provide additional amenities or value for their guests.
These are often small, inexpensive things such as a welcome basket of snacks, chocolates on the pillow, basic toiletries and beauty products or complementary tickets to the cinema or a local tourist attraction.
These little perks go a long way in impressing guests. They greatly increase the likelihood of receiving positive reviews and put credit in the “goodwill bank” for when small things go wrong (which inevitably happens on occasion).
They also enhance your listing’s desirability by allowing you to mention them on your Airbnb listing and thus provide a differentiating dimension of your place from your competition.
And whilst these perks inevitably cost a small amount to buy, they will almost always pay for themselves many times over through positive reviews, an increase in your number of bookings and a higher price you’re able to command for your place as a result.
