The Electric Vehicle (EV) market has been on the rise in the past few years. It is important that short-term rental managers keep up to date with the latest trends including the EV market as potential guests are now looking for more sustainable options when travelling.
According to recent research conducted by Expedia, 90% of participants search for sustainable options when travelling and more than 50% would be prepared to pay more for sustainable transportation.
How does adding EV Charging benefit short-term rental property managers?
As a property manager, you should aim to attract as many guests as possible. Since more people are becoming more environmentally conscious, it is worth adding EV charging to your properties to attract such guests. By adding EV charging to your property, you will stand out from the crowd and guests who are looking for more sustainable accommodation are more likely to choose your property, therefore increasing your bookings.
A further benefit of adding EV charging to your property is that you would add a new revenue stream by setting a fee (either per kilowatt or setting a daily rate) for usage of the EV charging.
How will your guests benefit?
Adding EV charging to your property means that all drivers of electric vehicles will find it more convenient and easier to live in at your location. They will benefit from rapid EV recharging and remotely control their chargers and get smart status updates.
