As a passionate host of vacation rentals, your main objective is to offer exceptional hospitality. However, you frequently encounter repetitive questions from your guests, such as “Is there parking available?” or “Could you please clarify the check-in and check-out times?” Answering these inquiries repeatedly can be time-consuming and divert your attention from other important hosting responsibilities.
To tackle this issue and improve your efficiency, we have partnered with Folio.
