How to work with the questions of tourists
We kindly recommend the accommodation owners to answer questions as fast as possible.
According to our statistics, 63% of guests, who didn’t receive an answer within 2 hours, will find and book a different option. Only 4% of travelers are ready to wait more than a day.
We recommend checking messages every day, spending at least some time to answer all of them.
We inform our guests that the maximum waiting time is 3 days, and if there’s no answer after 3 days, they need to find something else.
The owners need to remember that TripAways offers a wide range of listings, and the guest is able to look at 3-5 objects at the same time. Answer immediately and you can catch the attention of the user, and get a booking. Be silent, and the guest will choose someone more talkative.
There are no strict terms on TripAways, so messages won’t be marked as late. Nevertheless, we recommend answering all the messages, even if you missed them. By doing so, you will show some respect. Apologize for the late answer, and get the benefits.
The faster the owner answers the questions of the tourists, the higher are chances to get the booking.
