TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals today launched a new ‘owner dashboard’, creating a new and vastly improved experience for homeowners and property managers.
Tens of thousands of TripAdvisor homeowners and managers were consulted in the dashboard’s creation. The outcome is a faster, more efficient way for customers to market their properties and take bookings on TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site.
The new dashboard features include:
- An intuitive new inbox which sorts messages and requests by priority
- Re-built calendar functionality which quickly and clearly shows availability and booking details
- Additional options to provide more comprehensive and compelling property descriptions
- Improved map technology to add, edit and pinpoint your location
- A secure ‘Keep me signed in’ option to save time
Homeowners and property managers who signed up through TripAdvisor sites Niumba, FlipKey, Holiday Lettings and Vacation Home Rentals will now see a unified TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals experience with the new dashboard. Travellers will see no change and can continue to search and book properties through the individual sites.
Dermot Halpin, President, TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals said, “We’re thrilled with the results and positive feedback. We’ve spent thousands of hours building the new dashboard, consulting with our customers throughout, and have delivered a platform that directly answers their needs – an intuitive system that makes listing and booking management even easier.”
Feedback from both property managers and homeowners has been positive, in particular the below:
Homeowner Barry Manners, who lists his home on TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals, said “It’s simple to use and very intuitive. It makes updating my listings and taking bookings easier and quicker.”
Property manager, Marcus Whittington said, “The newly improved dashboard makes updating and maintaining our listing simple, it’s also very helpful to see correspondence with all past and present potential guests in one place.”
