Four Common Questions About iTrip’s Vacation Rental Franchise Opportunity
At iTrip, we are incredibly proud of our vacation rental franchise opportunity and all it offers. We have decades of experience in the short-term rental property management industry, and use our expertise to refine a time-tested business model that takes the guesswork out of running a rental property management business. Plus, our franchisees have the ability to create a better work/life balance. Throughout the years, we have talked with thousands of people interested in joining the iTrip Vacations brand, and naturally they have questions. Here, we look at answers to four common ones.
1. As an iTrip Franchisee, Will I Just Oversee Vacation Rentals?
No. When you take advantage of our vacation rental franchise opportunity, you will manage various types of private accommodations for both vacationers and business travelers. The fact is, whether they want to sun themselves on a beach, or meet with important clients out of state, more travelers are choosing private residences over hotels and motels for their convenience and cost-effectiveness. There are thousands of short-term rental properties in the U.S. that are not managed properly for secondary income, and iTrip is perfectly poised to reach this untapped market in a way the competition can’t match.
2. Will I Compete with Sites Like Airbnb and TripAdvisor?
Not at all. In fact, not only will you not compete with them, you will work with them. Through our deep relationships with listing sites like Airbnb, Vrbo, TripAdvisor and others, you will get your properties in front of millions of eyes every day. Our partnerships with these listing sites lead to:
- iTrip gets twice as many inbound booking inquiries as a Vrbo Elite partner
- Your listings appear on over 80 listing websites
- Your rental properties rank higher in search results on Vrbo
3. Will I Compete with Other iTrip Franchisees?
No. We assign exclusive territories to individual franchisees, so they do not compete with each other. This allows us to develop a comprehensive relationship with each franchise owner and offer him or her market-specific support to help grow the business.
4. Do I Need Experience in Rental Property Management?
No prior experience needed! One of the best reasons to take advantage of iTrip’s vacation rental franchise opportunity is that we make sure you feel prepared to do business, from the moment you become part of the iTrip brand family. Our comprehensive training teaches you how to reach prospective rental property owners; how to market your franchise to attract your best demographics; how to manage your rental properties; how to use our software; and much more! Our experts ensure you leverage our systems and procedures, and we remain there for you for as long as you are part of our brand. With iTrip on your side, you will be in business for yourself but not by yourself.
