Increased Rates for Premium Dates

Is there a way to increase rates for premier dates like NYE?

Hi Laura,

Not that I know of, but I like that idea. You might consider putting something in your profile noting that certain dates are offered at a premium rate.

I would just tell inquiries for that date that you can send them a custom booking price of you want to increase the rate. I’ve personally found a good amount of success though not changing my rates for different days. Keeps me comfortable with the discussion of price, removes debate from the clients as they know I don’t negotiate with anyone and is helping me build up the review base so I can universally up the pricing for everyone in the following year without decreasing my number of yearly clinets/bookings. Just a thought.

Hi. What is it that you rent out?

I added a “Holiday Rate” but have not charged it. Actually, I think I just pulled it from my listing.

I rent out a kitchen/event space. I just received a couple of inquires for a reduced rate for Xmas Eve and NYE. I kindly declined these requests and realized I probably should be charging a premium rate not a reduced rate.

I agree. Most industries do charge more on holidays…
I could see having a premium rate. If no bookings then last minute offering a reduced rate.

Hi, is there a place on Peerspace to promote availability for a special event day like Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s or Cinco de Mayo? My calendar is usually pretty full but I would like to offer these at a special, packaged rate. Any advice?

I dont think Peerspace has a holiday program at this time but I am sure they are working on it as they are quick to respond to our questions/requests. I would possibly lower your cost or add-in what you would typically charge for. Always think from the renter’s POV.
I hope this helps, reach out to me if you have any questions, I would love to brain storm with you.

Ok great, thanks for the reply. I am mostly interested in how to market it prominently and stand out on the Peerspace platform. I am hardly ever available for bookings but definitely have special dates I’d like to push hard.

Hi @Diana_A,

We don’t have this feature yet but what some host do is they may change the title of their listing to let guests know they have a discount for the occasion or change the rate of the 8 hour discount. You can also list any discounts to the price or packaged rates in your listing description and you can then send a guest a custom price when the guest inquires about the promotional rate.

We are always looking for feedback or suggestions on how we can enrich the Peerspace hosting experience for our hosts I will pass this suggestion to our product team.

Warmly,

I think it would be great to offer different pricing based on day of the week, holiday and high demand days
