Which Vacation Rental Amenity Matters the Most?

While today’s vacation rentals are well above competing with hotels, they are very much in competition with other vacation rental homes in the area. The more amenities your property has the better the experience for the traveler and the more repeat guests you will have.
It’s important to know which amenities matter the most to your vacationers to ensure returning visitors and to maximize profit.
When Tripping.com did a survey asking what vacation rental amenities matter the most to U.S. consumers, at the top of the list was Internet/Wifi with 38 percent of consumers listing it as their number one most amenity.
In this day and age it’s important for guests to stay connected to the internet while away. The internet is critical to find local restaurants, plan a trip, do business as well as to stay in touch with those back home. The internet is a must-have for most travelers.
When comparing vacation rentals to hotels, some luxury hotels still do not offer this most valued amenity free of charge. Hotel guests paying up to $500 dollars and above a night for a room still have to pay an extra fee to use the Internet/Wifi during their stay. When you compare that to vacation rentals, a majority of properties offer Internet/Wifi included in the price.
