BeeRent thanks you for making our seminar with Airbnb such an amazing experience!
BeeRent had a great time meeting all of you in Pula last week, you made our seminar a very productive evening.
Joined by Airbnb, we had amazing conversations, exciting news and of course, great coffee! For those of you who may have missed it, we'll gladly fill you in.
Airbnb's speaker gave some valuable hosting & listing optimization tips
Airbnb is one of the largest channels worldwide with a whopping 2million guests staying in Airbnb listings every night!
Whether you are renting a room, vacation home or even a manor you can showcase it on Airbnb's site and reach more than 60% of guests that book directly on the website.
Ratings are an essential part of every good listing, and Airbnb has created hosting standards to reward users that have a high rating with a better position in search results.
Guests can filter searches for a property that best suits their needs, including specific amenities and services.
Here are the main factors that affect searches:
- Positive reviews - several great positive reviews will convince even more guests to book with you, taking the time to acquire positive reviews is an investment that will pay for itself many times over
- Lack of booking cancellations - avoid canceling bookings, listings with the least cancellations have a higher search rating
- Instant Book - a great way to get more reservations is to not make your guests wait for a reply, use BeeRent and get instant bookings
- Superhost status - Superhosts have a rating of 4.9 stars or more and guests prefer their listings and even have the option of using these criteria as a search filter
- Minimum Lenght of Stay - the key is to set the minimum stay number to the shortest possible, Airbnb guests strongly prefer shorter stays
To ensure the best possible visibility of your listing optimize these elements too:
Photos are the first feature of your property that the guest sees and that makes them very important! Use only high-resolution photos, avoid watermarks and logos, write a description for each photo and make sure you are showcasing all rooms within your property.
A descriptive title is imperative to attracting guests, make sure you mention local attractions, popular events of the area and key amenities.
To attract the right type of guests tailor your listing to accommodate families with essentials like a kitchen and TV, or make it a perfect workspace with wifi for those who are on the job.
Describe your space in a way that is simple, attractive and informative. Clearly explain what exactly makes your listing unique, including all amenities you are offering as well as any special rules you might have

BeeRent shared some big news, or as we like to call it, our step into a new era
The BeeRent platform is a central database with a decentralized distribution network that helps all property managers, travel agencies and private owners make more money and save up to 90% of their time!
But, you already know that, so what's the big news? There are a few actually, let's start with the mobile app.
We love creating new ways to make your job of managing properties easier, so this time we created a simple time-saving solution - BeeRent selfChekcIn Mobile App!
This app is perfect for guests, hosts and travel agencies because it allows online check-in's with just a few clicks. Whether the guest wants to check into your property in advance, or you wish to manage your reservations yourself, scan the guest's documents through the selfCheckIn app and automatically register them into eVisitor. The app supports reservations both from sales channels and your private websites, it also gives you a view of currently checked-in guests and the option of editing reservation dates.
Where you can find this smart automatic mobile application read on our selfCheckIn blog here.
The second, equally important feature we presented is the automatic payment module! Who doesn't like receiving payments without having to send out invoices? We know we do! Our completely automated BeeRent Pay module allows you to charge your guests credit cards safely and without the need for reminders.
Guests can make reservations on your direct website or on sales channels such as Booking.com, HomeAway or Expedia and insert their credit card information, which will later be charged based on the payment policy chosen.
It's as simple as that, BeeRent Pay protects the guests' information and allows you to charge the credit card automatically.
How to enable this module that does all the work for you learn here.
We are very grateful to all of you that came and listened to us, shared experiences and made this seminar such a success! BeeRent thanks Airbnb for the cooperation and hopes for many more joint events in the future. We had so much fun and learned a lot in the process, thank you Pula!
Let's connect and grow together.
