Many people fantasize about going on the perfect RV trip to the destination of their dreams. However, not all have the means to be able to make their RV vacation a reality. When you rent out your RV, you are sharing the gift of RV travel with vacationers and RV enthusiasts who are looking to bring their RV dreams to life. This is a unique opportunity that allows you to connect with people around the world that also share your passion for RV travel, while earning some additional cash!
You may be wondering how you can make this opportunity more personal and tailored to the needs of your renters to attract more bookings. You could drive more renters to your listing by promoting it on Kijiji, or you could create a video that showcases all that your RV has to offer.
However, in this blog, we will dive into the topic of “Add-ons” and how you can create them for your RVezy listing to maximize your earnings and provide renters with a truly unforgettable experience that will keep them coming back!
Add-ons are specific offerings that owners can add to their RVezy listing. Some examples of popular add-ons that RVezy owners are currently offering are delivery, generator use and BBQ - among others, which owners provide to renters at an additional cost. All of these are things that would be useful for a renter while they are on a camping trip in your RV.
By creating unique add-on packages that are suited to the needs of your renters, you will be able to attract more bookings, as the majority of renters choose owners who provide all of the essentials.
If you would like to create add-ons for your RVezy listing, start by signing in to your RVezy Dashboard and selecting “My RVs”.
Once you have done that, select “Edit Listing” for the RV you would like to create an add-on for.
You will then be taken to the following page, where you can select “ADD-ONS” to start creating add-ons for your RV rental listing.
The following is the page where you will be able to start creating add-ons for your listing.
To make things easier for you, we have created some pre-determined options for add-ons that you can choose from.
Based on feedback from both our owners and renters, one of the most popular add-ons that renters look for is delivery. If you would like to go ahead and create an add-on, for delivery for example, you can click on the add-on you would like to add and input the amount you would like to charge.
We have also included suggested prices based on what other owners on RVezy are charging to help you remain competitive. However, you are always free to charge any amount you would like for your add-ons in order for them to make financial sense for you and your lifestyle.
Some other available options for add-ons that you can create are:
We have also provided the option for you to create your own special add-ons that allow you to be as creative as you would like with your add-ons, and really personalize the experience for your renters.
These two custom add-on options that you can take advantage of are:
This add-on allows you to create a custom package for your renters while they are renting your RV to really make their experience exceptional and more convenient. Some examples of things you can include in a convenience package include:
Try to put yourself in the renter’s shoes to get a better idea of what they would appreciate which would really make their vacation more convenient. The idea of a vacation is to relax, right? Try and make their trip as easy and stress-free as possible. Their gratitude will reflect in raving reviews as well as repeat bookings in the future!
This is another opportunity for you to create a specialised add-on for your renters. You can really add anything as a custom add-on and you can always make changes to it whenever you need to. This is great because you have the ability to tailor your custom add-ons based on where your renters are going and what they will be doing.
For example, if your renters are planning on going kayaking and you happen to have a kayak lying around at home, you can always offer it as a custom add-on to help them make the most of their trip. Or if you know your renters will be travelling to a destination where it will be raining during their trip, you can always offer rain ponchos and umbrellas as a custom add-on. Or even if you know they will be travelling with kids, if you have a video game console and games that aren’t being used often, you could also include them for a fee, and their kids will definitely appreciate it!
Offering add-ons for your booking adds a very personal touch for your renters and helps to make their trip more convenient. It also allows you to maximize your profits by reaping some additional revenue from your booking. You can be as creative as you want for your add-ons. Try to be thoughtful in order to find the add-ons that will resonate with your potential renters the most, so that they choose your listing each time!
