How to get more bookings from travelers with an "comparison shopping" mindset

In the travel industry, there is a growing tendency for online travelers to do "comparison shopping". According to the HitWise's latest US travel report, close to 44% of visitors who visit one travel website, also visit another travel website.

This is of no surprice to us! As a matter of fact, one of the main reasons why has grown so fast in the last year is due to its effectiveness in facilitating this "comparison shopping" to online travelers and vacationers.

At, travelers can save priceless hours of Internet browsing by simply using our free inquiry service. In several of the top destinations, travelers can get instant offers upon submiting their inquiries and compare offers from properties that meet their lodging criteria. Within hours they can get multiple offers from our property owners. Even further, recently started offering a referral service to link travelers to our network of travel agents, within 24 hours upon submitting an inquiry, if they do not receive enough offers. This is especially useful for those no so popular destinations with lesser inventory as options for travelers.

Below are some tips that have helped many of our property owners increase their bookings in Rentalo:

1. First, we highly recommend that you invest some time reviewing the content of your property listing in Make sure you show as much information as you feel relevant for visitors about your property and location. Specially pricing & pictures! Please refer to the tutorial section if you need to learn more about editing your property listing(s) in
