How to Incorporate the Most Rented Items of 2021 Into Your Vacation/Short-term Rental
Updated: Mar 30
In July of 2021, Booqable.com published the The Top 10 Most Rented Items in 2021. Here are the top hits of the year:
Event decor and equipment Camera and AV equipment Bikes Party equipment and inflatables Camping and hiking equipment
Tools and construction equipment Suits and wedding dresses Water sports equipment Winter sports equipment Toys and baby equipment
You may be asking yourself, “What does this have to do with me?!”
Well here's why, if you manage an airbnb, vacation rental, or short term rental, your main concern is making money and getting that sweet, sweet five-star rating without breaking the bank or a sweat.
Out of this top 10 list, we see at least three amenities that can get you that extra cash and five-star rating just like that.
Our first recommendation of course is bikes, specifically e-bikes. E-bikes and e-scooters are the best way for your guests to get around you city, especially if it’s their first time.
Electric Bikes and Scooters
With recent crackdowns on micromobility-sharing companies, many people are paying top-dollar to rent electric bikes and scooters at rental shops around town. How happy do you think they would to find these amenities in the very place they are staying at!?
We already know the answer. VERY happy.
By adding e-bikes and/or e-scooters to your property, you are taking out the middle man and the hassle of finding a place to rent at, making reservations, and worrying about a time constraint when it comes to pick up and drop off.
Winter and Water Sports Equipment
Another great addition to your property could be water and winter sports equipment. Depending on where your vacation or short term rental is located, your guests might be traveling to specifically enjoy what your climate has to offer. For example, if you are in Big Bear, California or have a cabin near Park City, Utah, your winter guest might be booking specifically to go skiing or snowboarding. By offering on-site rentals like snowboards, skis, and sleds, your place will 100% stand out from the rest.
Let’s say you’re in Dana Point, California or Waikiki, Hawai’i? Your guest might include avid surfers
or travelers looking to check surfing in Hawai’i off their bucket list. Traveling is already so stressful, your guest will truly appreciate the effort you put in to make their experience easy like sunday mornings!
You might be like “WOW! I’m hyped now. Let’s do it! But, how can I manage all these additional amenities on top of my vacation/ short-term rental property?”
