This is a win-win situation. Our platform delivers more revenue for the property managers and owners, and great deals for vacationers.
Pawleys Island, SC (PRWEB) April 20, 2011
One of the hottest sectors within online travel has been vacation rentals. Over the last few months, the growing industry has seen some of its largest players announce IPO’s and investments from large established Venture Capital firms and even Google.
Innovation has also taken other forms within the industry. One startup in particular has launched a unique and clever approach to the pricing of these rental units.
Vacation Remix has developed a platform where both property managers and owners can liquidate their expiring inventory by giving users the ability to “make offers” or “name the price” they want to pay for their vacation rental.
“By using a Price Discovery method, we feel it engages the vacationer in the process and accomplishes our two primary goals,” says Brady Stump, co-founder of Vacation Remix. “The first goal is that it books an otherwise lost booking of a vacation rental and delivers a great deal for the vacationer. This is a win-win situation. Our platform delivers more revenue for the property managers and owners, and great deals for vacationers.”
Most of today’s established vacation rental sites offer two methods to inquire about rental properties. Users either send email inquiries about various rental properties or book the property at the full list rate on the website. Vacation Remix feels that both methods leave the vacationer wanting more.
Stump explains their process in straight forward terms. “Users make offers on rental properties then property owners simply hit accept or a counter button. Property owners and vacationers use the platform to eliminate bottlenecks by simply going back and forth until an agreed upon price for the rental is quickly reached.”
Vacation Remix launched in March and continues to expand into new regions each month. New features and online tools for property owners to further expedite the process of moving inventory will be launched in the coming weeks. Expect to hear more from Vacation Remix in the coming months.
