Electrify Your Bookings

Boost Your Vacation Rental with an EV Charger

As your dedicated property manager, my top priority is to ensure your property stands out and attracts more bookings. In today’s competitive vacation rental market, offering the right amenities can make all the difference. One amenity that is rapidly gaining popularity is the Electric Vehicle (EV) charger. Let me explain why this small investment can bring significant returns and help you achieve higher booking rates.

Staying Ahead in a Competitive Market

The vacation rental market is becoming increasingly competitive. With more properties available than ever before, attracting guests requires offering unique and desirable features. Travelers are looking for more than just a place to stay; they seek convenience, comfort, and modern amenities that enhance their experience. By investing in an EV charger, you can set your property apart from the competition and draw in a broader range of guests.

The Growing Demand for EV Chargers

The demand for EV charging stations is skyrocketing as more people switch to electric vehicles. By providing an EV charger, you cater to a demographic that is rapidly expanding. This added convenience can make your property a top choice for eco-conscious travelers and those who own or are considering purchasing an electric vehicle.

Why Invest in an EV Charger?

Installing an EV charger at your property costs approximately $3,400. This investment includes:

  • Labor of a licensed electrician
  • All necessary parts and equipment
  • The EV charger itself
  • An outdoor-rated “EV CHARGER” sign
  • An outdoor-rated protective cover mounted on a wall

Increased Booking Rates

In a recent meeting with representatives from Airbnb and VRBO, I learned that EV chargers are among the top 10 amenities that travelers search for using filters. This highlights the growing importance of offering this feature to attract potential guests.

The Financial Upside

Let’s break down the numbers. Given that the Average Daily Rate (ADR) for your property is $300 per night, here’s how quickly the investment can pay for itself:

  • Total cost of installation: $3,400
  • Average daily rate (ADR): $300 per night

By dividing the total installation cost by the ADR, we find that the investment is covered with just over 11 additional booked nights. With the increasing demand for EV-friendly accommodations, achieving these extra bookings can be swift and seamless.

Additional Benefits

  1. Attract a New Demographic: By offering an EV charger, you tap into the rapidly growing market of EV owners.
  2. Enhance Property Value: Installing an EV charger can increase the overall value and appeal of your property.
  3. Positive Environmental Impact: Contributing to sustainable travel can enhance your property’s reputation and attract environmentally conscious guests.

Your Success is My Priority

In the competitive vacation rental market, it’s essential to stay ahead by offering the amenities that travelers are actively seeking. My goal is to ensure your property remains competitive and continues to attract high-quality bookings. By investing in an EV charger, you not only meet the current market demand but also position your property as a forward-thinking and eco-friendly choice for travelers.
