How to improve your Airbnb.com or rental listing

Travel Tips
Posted on: November 11th, 2013 by Derek 1 Comment

I recently took a trip to Paris where I decided on using Airbnb.com instead of a hotel.  I was pleasantly surprised by my experience in a few ways, but most of all the way in which I felt like a Parisian almost immediately upon putting my bags down.

Our host Benoit met us at his door, pulling up in a moped wearing skinny jeans, a leather jacket and a baguette / bottle of wine attached to the back. My immediate thought was, “was this guy hired by airbnb.com to look like a local or play the part of a frenchman perfectly?”.  Upon exchanging pleasantries and trying out my limited French that was buried since high school, he led us back to his apartment where he asked us if we knew what to do in the neighborhood. After answering no, he gave us a short list of his favorite places to eat, drink, see and experience.

From that experience, we at Buggl tried to apply some style and improve upon what Benoit could have possibly done better to heighten our experience.  We built Buggl for all the Benoit’s out there – people who are sharing global experiences in travel and local and would like to have an edge over their competitors.

In a matter of minutes, anyone can design a custom travel guide on our platform and share that to the world.  Whether you have a blog about travel, an apartment listing to share or just feel the need to describe a future, present or past event that was meaningful – Buggl is the perfect way to share your experiences. You’re able to compile the list of your secret places, plan out itineraries and share insight into where you live or travel to.

I would think that any host providing this type of guide and level of service to his / her guests would result in future bookings, viral word of mouth and an overall better experience when customers visit.  So if you want to improve your rental listing online, guests experiences in the B&B, hotel or hostel you run or in any online / offline travel business; please visit www.buggl.com and start designing beautiful travel guides for your customers.
