With South Carolina in phase 2 of reopening, I’ve had a wonderful rush of booking requests.
Historically my guests have been budget conscious families and mostly middle aged couples or groups. My condo is close to ocean but not ocean front so not as appealing to younger guests.
Usually by 4/30, my summer is booked. Understandably everyone waited
My guests this summer are easily 90% 24-32 yr old couples. Almost all want early check-in. (I advertise “for your protection, reservations follow the CDC Covid 19 recommendation for the condo to be empty for 24 hours between bookings”)
My Summer bookings by older guests have disappeared.
My fall festival bookings by older guests have all cancelled.
50% of my booking requests are from people joining Airbnb in June 2020. Newbies always require more hand-holding but due to the high %, this is WORK!
Are you back in business? If yes, have you noticed a different type of guest booking?
