Once your booking is secured, it’s time to turn your attention to check-in.
A few days before your arrival, watch for your host’s messages. They might provide you with check-in instructions, such as an access code to a lockbox, or arrange a time for an in-person key hand-off.
Keep the lines of communication open, and don’t hesitate to contact your host with any questions.
Some key points for a smooth check-in process include:
- Confirming your arrival time with your host
- Reviewing the check-in instructions provided by the host
- Making a note of any specific property access details (e.g., keypad code, lockbox location)
- Keeping your host informed of your travel updates or any delays
During your stay, remember to maintain open communication with your host. Lake has a built-in messaging tool, making guest-to-host communication a breeze. Use the messages feature to ask your host questions about the property or seek recommendations for local activities.
A successful check-in process begins with securing your booking and payment on the online vacation rental platform. Follow the host’s instructions, communicate regularly, and you’ll be all set.
