"We released the property review platform last July and so far the response has been an overwhelming success"
VANCOUVER, BC, May 21, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- alluraDirect Vacation Rentals, one of the longest running Canadian owned and operated VRBO and lodging marketplaces that specialize in Whistler accommodations, has announced the immediate launch of an upgraded property review platform as well as a host of new features for all customers. The expanded review platform will allow property owners to recommend problem free guests on past reservations, allowing for a marketplace that further promotes 2-way transparency and trust.
Property owners listed on the alluraDirect.com vacation rental service have instant access to the new feature, allowing them to recommend guests who have made successful reservations with them in the past. Allowing the community of property owners to highlight superstar guests who will continue to expand the level of trust and confidence throughout our vacation rental marketplace.
"We released the property review platform last July and so far the response has been an overwhelming success," says Matt Hick, Owner Relations Manager at alluraDirect. "The correspondences we have seen between the property owners and guests has been amazing, ultimately giving future guests a better overall experience at the properties. Giving the owners the ability to recommend great guests was the next step to expand this transparency and trust relationship."
While reviews, recommendations and ratings left for consumers is fairly common for many industries, global companies that focus on vacation rentals like Homeaway and VRBO do not have the ability to do so. Properties listed on these services can be unfairly punished by possible vindictive guests who may be using the threat of a negative review as blackmail; having the ability to recommend good guests will give owners of future reservations a sense of comfort.
Current customers of alluraDirect can view all previous guests who are eligible to be recommended under the Reviews _ Recommend Guests section of their control panel. Vacation property owners who are looking for a fair and transparent marketplace where high-quality guests book their holiday accommodation should check out the www.alluraDirect.com website.
alluraDirect.com is a leading vacation rentals marketplace, with over 600+ accommodations that can be instantly booked and confirmed with online payment. Property owners who manage a rental property receive a full suite of flexible management tools that help automate their business and expanded marketing distribution into partner travel sites.
