Tip #6: Let your guests arrive as Kings and leave as Emperors.

  1. Greeting guests on arrival

    1. Guests arrive at the vacation rental and is personally greeted by owner or top management. A brief 5 minute introduction, all guests are greeted including children, the guests' names are noted in a little book and the owner or top management learn all the names off by heart.

    2. At the end of the preliminary introduction guests should be requested "consult" the owner or property manager.

  2. Talking to guests during their stay

    1. When guests cross paths with owner or top management, however brief, they are all greeted by first name, for children, and surnames for adults. More attention should be given to the children to build a bond with them, owner or top management will create an important "ally" on guests' departure.

  3. Look after the children

    1. If guests have children, free baby sitting service for a 2 hour break should be provided. The parents will welcome that break however short it is. If they want additional baby sitting services then this could be provided against payment. See our Addon module below.
