If you have a spare room, a holiday home, or just about any space that could be rented out, it’s never been easier and more convenient to do so.
Anyone can sign up and use online rental platforms like Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com to turn spare rooms and rental properties into cash.
Airbnb is the most popular platform for hosts, catering to everything from shared rooms to fairytale castles and everything in between.
Vrbo is a vacation rental booking platform catering to holiday homes and rental properties.
Booking.com is traditionally a hotel booking site but enables hosts to list their properties.
All of these platforms are relatively easy to use and manage yourself, without needing to use a management company.
There’s a fee for using these services, and you’ll have to do some legwork, like creating your own marketing, sales and pricing strategy for your short-term rental, but overall they are incredible tools for exposure and getting bookings.
If you’re interested in renting out your property using an online platform, in this article, we’re taking a deep dive into what it’s like to be a host using these three major platforms.
