The promise of voice-enabled devices is clear—last year over a billion were sold, and 65% of 25-49 year-olds speak to them at least once per day. Consumers, including vacation rental guests, are demanding voice at a growing rate.
This is why we teamed up with VCS to allow vacation rental owners to enable voice features directly within guidebooks.
“Bringing voice access to vacation rental properties will help managers delight travelers and get better ratings. They’ve already spent the time and energy creating content on the Hostfully platform. Making that information available through a voice conversation is an easy way to provide even more value.”
— VCS Founder Dana Young
Virtual Concierge Service and Hostfully have teamed up to provide voice access in vacation rentals, using Amazon Alexa and Google Home voice technology. To start, you need a Hostfully Guidebook. From there, you can activate the voice tech option from within your guidebook. Then, your guests will be able to access all the great content in your guidebook, from local restaurants, to activities, and how to work the laundry.
