Building a strong listing
Polishing up your listing
Tips to make your profile pop
Thorough listings show up higher in search rankings and attract more guests.
Upload at least 6 clear, well lit photos
Include photos of all angles of the vehicle and take some aspirational shots with a nice background to really stand out from the crowd.
Review the photo guide for five tips to help you with composition and lighting.
Describe your vehicle thoroughly
List basic details about your vehicle using special features that make your vehicle unique, like dual motors. Including all the features will help beef up your listing and improve its discoverability.
Write a unique description. Share what’s great about your vehicle, and remember — a little personality goes a long way! Tell your guests about your cleaning routine, fun local drives, and any other interesting facts to get guests excited to book your vehicle. Be sure to write at least 100 words in your description — more robust descriptions get a little boost in search results!
Update and optimize your availability
Perhaps the most important setting to update frequently for hosts, both new and seasoned, is your availability calendar.
Block off the days that your vehicle isn’t available so you only get trips that work with your schedule. Keeping your calendar up to date will help you avoid canceling any trips and keep your performance metrics high so you can shoot for All-Star Host status.
Tips to maximize your earning potential
- Make your vehicle available on weekends — 40% of all trips begin on Friday or Saturday, which are nearly twice as busy as most weekdays.
- Plan ahead for peak seasons — Demand peaks for summer vacations (April to August) and fall holidays (October to December).
- Keep an eye out for long weekends — Guests often plan last-minute getaways over three- and four-day weekends
Perfect your pricing
The easiest way to score more bookings is to price your vehicle competitively.
Set your own daily rates manually. Monitor your local demand patterns yourself and flex your prices accordingly. Investigate how similar vehicles are priced and aim to price as competitively or better.
If you’re not getting the traction you’re looking for, try lowering your price to match similar vehicles in your local market — the most common mistake new hosts make is pricing their vehicle too high!
