Beat Hotels with the Best Vacation Rental Website Template

In the age of Airbnb and other listing platforms, some industry observers believe that vacation rentals will overtake hotels by 2020.

But as a vacation rental management company, can you afford to wait until then? 

The best way to beat hotels at their own game is to study their mistakes and learn from them.


Hotel Website Design Flaws Decrease Bookings

The author of a recent Tnooz article "Top 10 mistakes hotel websites make with design and usability" stated:

"Start making your website perform better. It’s hard to remember that these small things can matter more than the expensive design things, but do not give in to marketing peer pressure. Usability beats trends."

The article explored common hotel website design and usability flaws that turn guests away and decrease bookings. Some of the worst website design offenses mentioned were:

  • Missing phone numbers and contact information
  • Taglines that contained nothing of value to the reader
  • Music or video that plays automatically
  • Poor navigation
  • Poor quality video or photos
  • Hard-to-use booking engines

Vacation Rental Website Designs that Outperform Hotels

What lessons can be learned from all this?

Vacation rental management companies should review their websites to ensure they do not fall prey to poor design and usability issues.
