The short-term rental industry presents a new set of logistical challenges that come with guests arriving from all over the world.
Nowhere is this more evident than in London as Airbnb and HomeAway immerse themselves in metropolitan communities, it provides the opportunity for home owners to make new levels of income from their vacation rental.
We asked London host Vicky Walker:
Q: Have you been searching for a key exchange service?
A: I had only just started looking and found this one as saw it in the shop next to my house so thought it was perfect
Q: Does Sharebox make your daily operations more convenient?
A: Very much so, I don’t have to pay to get several sets of keys cut. it’s also literally next to my house so visitors can come and pick up keys quickly without having to travel too far. It has been great.
Meet Sharebox London at HOST 2019, 31 October - 1 November.
Q: What does your guests say about picking up keys in a Sharebox?
A: They have all found it very easy and installed the app. The only thing that still concerns me is that people could open it accidentally without being in stood of it. one lady didn’t want to download the app in case she did it and didn’t want responsibility for that.
Q: Would you recommend Sharebox to others?
A: I would yes, it has really helped me. The only thing I think is a little steep is the monthly fee. I think £20 cost is quite steep for this service.
