With more families traveling together, the California Lake Tahoe lodging vacation rental company, City Concierge®, has made it easier for friends to plan joint vacations using Facebook™. Vacation planning with another family has always been tedious, with both families trying to find places to stay that fit into their budgets and needs. Realizing that Social Network sharing has become the new replacement for email, City Concierge® has built technology for their travel website that allows two friends to pass potential vacation rental property information back and forth through Facebook™, and then book South Lake Tahoe rental vacation reservation with just one click, ending the laborious, time-consuming task of finding the right place to stay.
The new "share a link" technology allows potential vacation renters coming to Lake Tahoe (http://www.cityconcierge.com/reservations.lake-tahoe.asp ) to find and share available vacation rental properties, photos and descriptions, and complete information with their friends and have it post directly to their Facebook™ page. The sender has complete control over who sees the information, allowing them to post only to the friends they want to share with, keeping their Tahoe rental plans secure and private, or they can choose to open it for larger group travel.
Families traveling find that luxury vacation rentals such as homes and cabins are actually less expensive than individual hotel rooms, have more features such as full kitchens for cooking meals, living rooms for hanging out, and plenty of space for spreading out! This more personalized form of travel offers each property's unique features for travelers to look forward to enjoying. Vacation rental homes have become the new and growing choice in the travel industry, presenting so much more than a hotel room! In many resorts, especially beach and ski resorts, vacation rentals dominate the scene. They are ideal for families who still want to travel even though budgets seem to be shrinking. According to Visit California, the State of California travel resource, 52% of all adults will still plan a vacation at least once in the coming year even though there is economic uncertainty. City Concierge® is capitalizing on this with the launch of their new technology.
Like hotels, many of these short-term rentals are fair traded and appear on multiple sites, but are not necessarily serviced in the same way.
"We're not in the travel business, we're in the customer service business" commented CEO Jefferson Lanz, also noting that City Concierge® builds relationships with its customers who return over and over again because of it. "When all things are equal, customer service continues to win out. By making it easier for people to plan vacations and get South Lake Tahoe rentals easy, we're hoping we'll see less churn in the customer base and more repeat visits."
