General tips for contacting guests

Answering guests’ questions helps create a smoother and more positive experience at your property. Potential guests can ask questions about your property before they book. Your answers will be displayed publicly so we can help match a guest with the perfect property for them.

Here are a few tips on communicating with guests:

  • Get in touch before their stay

Provide info such as check-in hours, directions, or parking options before they arrive by using the Extranet’s Guest Q&A feature.

  • Quickly respond to messages

Quick replies help guests plan their trip in advance, giving them peace of mind before traveling.

  • Create message templates

Save time by setting up automatic replies or message templates to quickly answer frequently asked questions.

  • Keep track of your Reply Score

Your Reply Score indicates how promptly you reply to guest messages. The faster you respond, the higher your score. You can find it on the Extranet.
