Introducing our latest travel-site connection: Better B&B.
Managing vacation rental properties come with many responsibilities. Ensuring every property is well maintained, adequately set up, and listed on booking sites, and attending to varied guest needs are only a few of the many responsibilities. It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget the importance of giving back to our community, supporting and donating to non-profits, and helping those in need. After all, our thriving vacation rental markets wouldn’t be what they are without the support of local communities. CiiRUS is proud to partner with Better B&B™ to allow property managers and homeowners to earn more bookings while giving back to non-profits.
Who is Better B&B™?
Better B&B™ is a short-term rental social impact platform with a focus on philanthropy. Their business model bridges the marketing and giving-power of non-profits with the VRM sharing-economy; for each reservation, the host donates 10% of revenue to the non-profit of their choice.
What are the costs?
Property managers who advertise on the Better B&B™ site pay a $30 monthly membership fee per listing with ZERO additional fees. Unlike short-term rental platforms, Better B&B™ charges zero commission to the guest. This allows hosts to charge more per night while staying below pricing on other sites.
1. Prepaid tax benefits, which depend on 501c3 (tax-deductible) charitable giving.
2. Tremendous marketing reach, depending on non-profit platform promotion.
3. Non-profits promote Better B&B™ platform to their donors.
4. Listings attract socially conscious guests.
5. Guests search hosts based on their giving preference.
6. Non-profits promote Better B&B™ hosts based on their giving preference.
7. Donations are made directly from PMCs to non-profits for tax benefit adding to profitability.
Why Better B&B™?
Better B&B™ offers its full transparency to all users, which means that there are no surprise fees, no secrets, and a direct connection to guests without intermediaries. They ease the property manager’s worries by disclosing all costs to the host and guests while providing hosts with access to a full breakdown of guest fees on each booking, with no exceptions. Hosts also have direct access to guests without interference from Better B&B™. And the best part? Homeowners and property managers have the great opportunity of giving back while earning.
