Turnkey and Whimstay Team Up to Provide More Rental Home Options for Last-Minute Travel Across the U.S.

USA, Austin, Texas. November 17, 2020

TurnKey Vacation Rentals, which manages over 6,000 upscale vacation homes around the U.S., and Whimstay, a platform to secure last-minute vacation rental reservations, have teamed up to offer even more options for travelers seeking great deals and spontaneous getaways. Through this new partnership, the Whimstay website and app will feature TurnKey's extensive collection of vacation rental properties, offering additional inventory for home-stay options throughout the United States.

"Whether travelers are planning a spontaneous trip or looking for a great value, we are excited to offer them more options to stay at our beautiful homes," said T.J. Clark, Co-Founder and President of TurnKey. "Whimstay aligns with our foundational focus on innovation and technology, and together we look forward to offering memorable stays for guests."

TurnKey is a full-service vacation rental management company, with vacation homes in more than 80 destinations throughout the country. With TurnKey, guests can stay at a clean, private home at a great value, often including its own private amenities, like a pool, game room or extra space. Whimstay partners with professional property managers to provide travelers with last-minute deals on vacation homes. Travelers can browse last-minute availability on thousands of properties - from beach houses to mountain cabins - and book them immediately.

"We are thrilled to team up with TurnKey to expand our rental home options on Whimstay," said Bradford Solso, CEO of Whimstay. "With an increase in demand for private vacation homes and travelers continuing to book with shorter lead times, it is the ideal moment to bring TurnKey's extensive collection into our platform."

In response to COVID-19, TurnKey introduced new home cleaning innovations, including enhancements to their patented GuestWorks® cleaning system and verification technology. The GuestWorks® system requires professional housekeepers to follow a stringent set of cleaning standards, customized for each home and available on the TurnKey Housekeeping App, as well as confirm and photo-validate their use of EPA-approved COVID-19 fighting products, as identified by the American Chemistry Council's Center for Biocide Chemistries.

Sales & Marketing: Playing the Long Game

During an economic downturn, it is tempting to slash marketing budgets to make up for lost revenue. But smart hoteliers play the long game, knowing that companies who stay engaged with their customers will be the first to benefit from a rebound. Therefore, now is the time to renew and revamp sales and marketing strategies in order to be ready for what lies ahead. For example, this is a perfect time to refresh website content, social media and SEO.  The same for hotel blogs where content can be updated to give customers inspirational ideas as they begin to travel and meet again. Multimedia assets should also be revised with new photo/video shoots that provide accurate information about how setups, room configurations, and onsite offerings have changed to accommodate safer meetings and social distancing. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the sales and marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting in anticipation of a recovery in 2021.
