In this report, Technavio highlights the growth of smart cities as one of the key emerging trends driving the vacation rental market in Europe:

Improved booking process

Instant bookings are a new norm in the vacation rental market in Europe, as customers worldwide get gratification to book their vacation instantly without waiting. Online vacation rental sites are upgrading their technology to enable customers to book properties in real time, without having to wait for confirmation. This value-addition will improve the convenience of booking a vacation rental and therefore improve customer satisfaction. Instant bookings have become a key differentiator among vacation rental players.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio, “One of the major reasons for the major vacation rental player, Airbnb, to introduce instant bookings was the effort to combat discrimination while booking on its online platform. Instant bookings made it more difficult for the hosts to discriminate the guests based on gender identity, race, disability, national origin, or age. This policy was in direct response to issues and incidents of discrimination that were reported on the online platform.”

The autoresponder technology is also an upcoming system to save time and money by responding to potential guests immediately. It enables auto responses to inquiry emails, emails instant quotes, provides online booking options, and takes care of repetitive inquiries among others. This is expected to create a better user-experience and create an efficient platform for booking.
