LiveRez recently launched a new feature for its vacation rental websites that makes finding and booking a vacation rental even easier. It’s called calendar search. And, while the part of the functionality has been an option on LiveRez websites for a while now, a few recent additions really make it that much more powerful.
Via the booking box on LiveRez-powered websites, the primary way guests search is by entering in set arrival and departure dates, and then setting preferences for the types of homes they want (bedrooms, location, etc.). This type of search is the industry standard, and works great for many guests.
But, what if the guest has flexible dates? Or what if it’s a last minute booking and a lot of homes are already booked? That’s where calendar search is so powerful.
Calendar search allows guests to search by a flexible arrival date and then shows each property’s occupancy calendar in the search results. This way, the guest knows the exact availability of the home. Recently, LiveRez made the calendars themselves interactive, meaning that the guest could just click on the arrival date and then click on the departure date, view the property and/or make a booking right from the search results page.
Additionally, LiveRez updated the look of the calendars to make it easier for guests to recognize check-in days and check-out days.
What makes this search so powerful is that it gets guests thinking like reservationists. And, when you can get a guest to think like a reservationist, it makes filling your calendars that much easier.
Guests uncover more reservation options. And, you get more bookings.
Let’s take a closer look at how it works.
Step 1: Guest search with calendar search, entering a flexible arrival date.
Step 2: Guests view the search results and see each property’s calendar.
Step 3: Guests pick their dates right from the property calendar, and then they view the property or book it right from the search results page.
