Listing a property as a holiday rental, whether it be an holiday home, granny flat or investment property, can be a great way to make some additional income.
Handing over keys & self check-in
If you don’t live near the accommodation or can’t be available on call, late check-ins, overstays and disrupts unauthorised access chains can be a real headache. Fortunately, there are many options for automating the key handover.
When the hosts cannot meet the guests in real life, many choose to hide the key in a certain spot by the front door. Alternatively, the keys can be given to trusted acquaintances or a company, who then pass the keys on to the guests. However, the use of electronic door locks, such as the Lokcom, or a key safe is much more convenient.
Cleaning the place
If the flat or the house is booked on regular basis, cleaning can take up a large share of the spare time. If you have hired a cleaner, it can be difficult to find someone who works up to your standards and can jump in for a longer time period at short notice if required.
It could also be quite complicated to find someone you would trust enough to give some keys. A lock using the Lokcom solution allows not only to avoid giving a key away, it is also the best way to know who’s currently in the flat and for how long the person stayed.
Dealing with complaints
During their stay, guests often appear satisfied and easy to please, but on occasion, you may be in for a not so pleasant surprise. Indeed, as it would happen to your own house, something might be broken or not working so well. No guest wants to experience this but none of them would like to have to delay their holiday activity and wait for fixer. Using Lokcom solution allows you to give a single entry code and avoid your guest to have to wait.
