Varoom Vacation Rental Cooperative for Rent By Owners
(News Item #0295, Published: 02/01/14, Varoom.biz)
Owners of Self managed Vacation Rentals have a brand new option for gaining extra bookings and increasing profits. It is cheaper, easier and more flexible than expensive paid listings.
The owners of Varoom.biz have just announced the first Cooperative for Vacation Rental bookings.
"This novel approach to helping Rent by Owners fills unoccupied dates by coordinating guest requests between managers, who have too many requests and owners who would like to fill them, " said Joseph Romain a designer on the project.
Even with the thousands of advertising websites catering to vacation rental owners, guests often search in vain to find the perfect accommodations. Varoom's guest website at VaroomVacationRentals.com is easy to navigate and easy to make bookings.
For owners, the system is collaborative in nature. Varoom works on a non-exclusive basis meaning owners are free to accept bookings from any other party with no fee to the Co-op. Owners only incure a commission to Varoom when they accept bookings and make money.
Penny Taylor, Sales Manager said, "There is no up front fee, a long-term contract is not required and property owners can pick and choose when to accept bookings. This is completely flexible for owners."
Varoom attracts visitors with extensive advertising, newsletters, email campaigns and a robust easy to use website . Varoom does the upfront work of posting homes into its system and offers an easy to use interface for coordinating dates, rates and bookings.
For networking, Varoom cooperates with local managers who often have excess inquiries and insufficient inventory to satisfy every guest. Even owners listed with managers are allowed to submit to Varoom because it does not compete with managers, but cooperates with them.
Steve Fletcher is a long-time property owner, renowned business consultant and advisor to Varoom. "By sharing in a mutually profitable way, guests, owners and managers all benefi., This kind of collaboration has always been a hallmark to a successful business."
