Millennials and Other Important Sectors
Millennials aren’t just a marketing buzzword — they inform important industries across the country, and the short-term rental property industry is no exception. iTrip is perfectly positioned to meet the needs of Millennials on the go. They love to travel, take shorter and more frequent trips, and spend more money doing so than any other age group. When you partner with iTrip to start your own short-term rental property management business you will cater to this important and influential consumer base.
iTrip also appeals to families because they love the convenience that private accommodations affords while traveling. Parents, kids and pets can all stay under one roof, and meal prep becomes easy and more affordable. In fact, 71% of travelers with children say the ability to cook their own meals is a major reason to choose private accommodations. Furthermore, families love to vacation!
But it’s not just families who love to hit the road. Baby Boomers are another demographic that love to travel, especially in the U.S. Partnering with iTrip Vacations to start your property management business will allow you to cater to them and other sectors we will discuss.
