Sustainable travel has become a major focus for many travelers and companies alike.
The short-term rental industry is now taking steps to ensure that guests are making a positive impact on the environment by introducing a greenium fee.
This greenium fee will be used to help fund projects that have a positive environmental impact and help reduce the negative effects of tourism.
The greenium fee would be an additional fee that guests will pay when booking their stay, but it won’t be too expensive. It’s estimated to cost around $2-3 USD per night, depending on the length of stay and other factors.
The money raised from the greenium will go towards projects such as reforestation, energy efficiency, waste management and more.
Should this initiative be a part of the short-term rental commitment to sustainability and its goal to become carbon neutral by 2030?
With this new fee, we hope to make it easier for guests to contribute towards sustainability initiatives while also promoting responsible tourism practices around the world, especially regarding labor shortage.
Lack of human resources
The hospitality industry is a rapidly growing sector of the global economy, and short-term rental property managers are an integral part of this success. However, we are concerned about the sustainability of our industry due to a lack of human resources.
The demand for rental properties has increased dramatically over recent years as more people look to rent instead of buy homes or invest in other forms of real estate.
This surge in popularity has put pressure on existing property managers who struggle to keep up with demand while also providing high-quality service and managing all aspects associated with running their business efficiently and effectively.
Without enough qualified personnel available, it can be difficult for Short-term property managers to meet customer expectations or keep up with new trends that may affect their businesses such as changes in technology or regulations around short-term rentals.
Furthermore, without adequate staff, there is also an increased risk that important tasks related to rental management will not be completed on time which could lead to dissatisfied customers and lost revenue opportunities if left unchecked.
Additionally, having fewer employees means less diversity within teams which can limit creativity when it comes problem-solving issues related directly or indirectly to renting out short-term rental properties
To ensure our industry remains sustainable into the future we must focus on:
1. recruiting highly skilled individuals who have experience working within this field before they become overwhelmed by too many responsibilities at once;
2. creating systems that allow them to access necessary training materials; provide competitive salaries so top talent isn’t lured away elsewhere;
3. promote flexible working hours so team members don’t burnout quickly;
4. encourage collaboration amongst colleagues whenever possible so everyone feels supported throughout each project they take part in together.
This is what we are doinn with our tech, stronger foundations upon which successful long-term strategies can build – ensuring continued growth even during times when external factors threaten stability.
Let’s work together to make guests and OTAs understand that short-term rental prices need greenium fees to make our industry and our world a sustainable better place.
