1. Register on Booking.com.
The first step is to register on Booking.com. You will be asked to enter your name and email address, as well as the property type and name. As for the name of your property, don’t just pick a random one. Instead, get creative and try to come up with a name that has a meaning behind it to make it more interesting.
2. Create your listing.
Now, it’s time to start creating your listing. Describe your vacation home, list amenities, add interior and exterior photos of the property, share payment preferences and details for invoicing. Make sure you’re highlighting the best things about your rental and writing in a captivating way that allows any potential guests imagine how it would feel like to stay in your property. However, keep in mind that you should always be honest.
3. Get your login information.
After you list your vacation rental on Booking.com, they will review it to make sure everything is OK. Then, you’ll receive an email with your account information, so that you can log in and update availability and prices, as well as instructions on how to put your property online.
4. Receive your payment.
Guests pay upon arrival at your property. Another thing to keep in mind is that Booking.com doesn’t increase the price of your rental. The price you set is what guests will pay. However, for each reservation, it charges a 15% commission for its services.
5. Receive your guests.
Now all you have to do is receive your guests. Before they arrive, take some time to clean and tidy up your property. In addition to make sure it has fresh sheets and towels, add some personal touches such as fresh flowers and a couple of magazines. It’s all about making your guests feel at home.
