HomeToGo has rapidly become one of the biggest players in the holiday rental industry, with an impressive number of 50 million users monthly. Now, HomeToGo has launched their own listing functionality for hosts across the world who desire to broaden even further their visibility and increase their bookings.
However, HomeToGo takes you further than other booking portals, since this new launch helps you match with the perfect guests for you, creating the best holiday experience for both travelers and hosts.
How to list your property on HomeToGo
The process is very simple and fast, starting with a sign-up on the HomeToGo platform and following an onboarding process. In less than 10 minutes your property will be ready to go live on the listing site.
- After you have signed up with an email address and password, you will be asked to define what type of property you want to list, as a single-unit or multi-unit property.
- Afterwards, simply specify what type of accommodation it is, for example, an apartment, bed & breakfast, boat, cabin, farmhouse, castle, villa, etc. and what rental type (shared, private, entire unit).
- Don’t forget to add the location, and the rest of necessary information: how many guests and rooms are available, photos, amenities, a catchy title and description, price and availability, and finally your booking policies.
Once all is finished, your listing is ready to go!
How much does it cost to list your property on HomeToGo?
There is no initial fee to list, so it is absolutely risk free.
HomeToGo offers two different pricing options to the hosts to choose from:
- HomeToGo “Split fee” pricing option: HomeToGo will charge you a 3% commission per booking. Your guest will be charged a variable fee based on HomeToGo’s pricing intelligence. This pricing option allows you to increase your booking revenue. HomeToGo adjusts the level of the service fee dynamically.
- HomeToGo “Host-only fee” pricing option: HomeToGo will deduct a 15% commission per booking from your payout. Your guests won’t be charged any fees. If you’re looking to maximize your booking rate, this pricing option is optimal. Important to note that the price/night you’re defining will be the price charged to your guests. No extra costs or services will be added.
