Expect A Surge in Last Minute Bookings This Holiday Season
Short-term rentals will be the ideal choice for travelers who want to stay near family this holiday season
And with our data showing that the majority of bookings are made within a week of the reservation itself, property management companies should be prepared for an influx of last-minute reservations.
