Extend Stays

Turn gap nights into moneymakers


Why You Need It

Drive More Revenue With Ease

An empty vacation rental home is a money loser. Extend Stays provides an opportunity to fill properties that would otherwise remain empty and generate additional revenue that adds up.

Save Money On Promotion and Housekeeping

It’s cheaper to extend the stay of a guest who has already booked than to find a new guest for a vacation rental home. Housekeeping expenses for existing guests are also significantly less than if new people rent the home.

Quick Setup And Easy To Use

Setting up Extend Stays is easy and quick. Message templates and an easy-to-use calendar showing gap nights between reservations make filling "the gap" a breeze.


How It Works

Identify Gap Days

Find gap days between a departure and an arrival quickly and easily. We factor in when a vacation rental property is reserved by the owners and when maintenance occurs.

Select Your Recipients

Use our elegant, color-coded calendar to select guests who may want to extend their stays before check-in or after check-out.

Invite Potential Guests

Choose the appropriate message from the templates you create and send it by text message or email to potential guests immediately or at a later time and date.
