Is there a way to increase rates for premier dates like NYE?
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.
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.
I think it would be great to offer different pricing based on day of the week, holiday and high demand days
