I’m still pretty new at this - just 3 months - I’m learning and have lots more learning to do.
I just received a request for a booking in March 2016. Wheee! Then I realized - dang, that’s the middle of Cherry Blossom Festival, I should probably raise our rates! DC is also a popular destination for Spring Break trips.
Does anyone have any advice about what months are most popular spring-break months, and about how much to increase my rates, etc? I’m thinking March-May?
I’ve now increased my rates just $10 a night for the Cherry Blossom Festival. )My regular rate for 2 people is $55 - I’m about 20 minutes train ride from ‘city center’, the guests share a toilet with a student who lives with us and have to come upstairs to shower - so I think my rate is comparable to other lodging options in my area. They also have a small kitchenette they share with the student)
Would love to hear from others how to approach this. “Air” offers no price tips for that far in advance.
