How to Create a Custom Listing for Your Renters

Are you looking to offer your renters a special discounted or configured rental listing? No worries, we've got you covered. Here's a simple guide to creating a custom listing that caters to your renters' needs.

Step 1: List Everything Included

When you're ready to create your custom listing, please provide a detailed list of all the items or services in the package within the description. This is important not only for your renter's understanding but also for insurance purposes. Clarity is critical, and it helps everyone involved have a smooth rental experience.

Step 2: Set an Accurate Replacement Value

Assigning a proper value to the entire package is crucial. This way, in the event of any damages during the rental period, you and your renter are on the same page about the package's worth. It is vital that the rental's maximum replacement value is listed on the rental listing. The renter's coverage covers only up to the listing's replacement value.

Step 3: Discuss the Price with the Renter

If creating a custom listing at the request of a renter, to avoid any confusion or surprises, have a friendly chat with your renter and agree on the price of the custom package beforehand. This ensures that both parties are happy with the arrangement and that the booking process goes smoothly.

Optional Tips:

  • Personalize the Listing: Consider including your renter's name in the package title for that extra clarity. It adds a personal connection and makes the listing feel tailored just for them.

  • Limit Availability: If you prefer to offer the custom package to only one renter at a time, you can block out the calendar or 'close' the listing after the booking is complete.

By following these straightforward steps, you'll create a fantastic custom listing and provide an excellent rental experience for your customers.
