Valentine’s Day will be here soon and, as an RV owner, offering rentals through Outdoorsy during any holiday can be a lucrative income opportunity.
Depending on your rental market, however, you may find that your RV isn’t getting booked, especially during slower seasons. One way to combat this is to create packages, just like you’d get at a hotel or bed and breakfast. Packages can encourage renters to stay with you — everyone loves feeling like they’re being pampered! Creating a package for renters to enjoy can help you stand out from the rest.
So whether you create a Valentine’s Day package or decide to make these add-ons a regular part of your offerings, we think they’re the perfect tool to add to your toolbox.
That being said, here are a few Valentine’s Day add-on ideas.
Valentine’s Day add-ons for RV renters
Offering a picnic basket takes an RV rental from status quo to stellar! Include a bottle of wine or sparkling cider, a tablecloth, and a couple of glasses. If your guests need some extra inspiration, think summer sausage and cheese, and flowers or candles for that outdoor picnic.
Film night extras
Sometimes the most romantic option is a night in. Set the mood for your renters with subtle white lighting (LED Christmas lights work well) and offer a selection of movies suitable for Valentine’s Day. Whether they’d like an old-fashioned movie like An Affair To Remember or a more modern romantic comedy like Sleepless in Seattle or You’ve Got Mail.
And if your guests might prefer something less romantic, feel free to throw in a crazy comedy or even a horror film. Who knows? Zombies may be just what they were hoping for this Valentine’s Day.
Set the mood for love with a romantic playlist, either as a CD or on your device of choice. Consider adding “Endless Love”, “I Will Always Love You”, “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” or “We Found Love” to your playlist.
Follow Outdoorsy on Spotify for some inspiration.
Throw in an extra surprise or two! Getting more than you paid for is always a treat — after all, think about how special it feels when your hotel provides chocolates or flower petals! The same goes for an RV rental. So don’t be afraid to think about what you’d want for Valentine’s Day and add some extra decor or treats.
Whether it’s a red rose, flower petals, chocolates, a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge, or beautiful bedding or bathrobes, special touches can encourage customers to rent with you, or thank them when they do.
Share the RV love
When it comes to adding extras to your RV rental, think like a potential renter. What would make your RV the perfect Valentine’s Day destination? For the customer that wants an outside-the-box celebration, perhaps in a location near nature where an RV can excel, you can use this approach to convert someone into a loyal customer.
