With TripAdvisor’s quick signup process and easy-to-use management dashboard, you’ll be booking guests in no time.
Here is a step-by-step guide to setting up your listing.
Create Your TripAdvisor Rentals Account
Once you’ve landed on our registration page, we first ask for your name, email and phone number as well as a secure password which you will use to login to your account in the future.
1. Start by adding the location of your rental property
You’re just seven quick steps away from being totally set up! The first property information you’ll fill out is about the location of your rental.
2. Property Details
This is where you fill in some specifics about the type of property you’re listing. You’ll add information like bedroom and bathroom count, maximum occupancy, amenities and features, plus your property title and property description.
3. Rates, Taxes, Fees
Next you’ll tell travelers what your rates are. You can add seasonal rates as well, such as charging more during peak season (demand is higher) or less during low season.
4. Booking Policies
In this section, you’ll set any policies related to the actual booking. Dictate guest payment options, your cancellation policy, refund policy and any damage deposits.
This is one of the most important aspects of your listing. Photos are the first impression a traveler gets of what your property actually looks like. We recommend using professional photos and displaying them in an order that takes your potential guest “through” your home from walk-in to exit.
6. Payout Settings
You’ll then set up how you’d like to be paid. Options include PayPal or direct to your bank via account and routing numbers. All payout options are secure and fully confidential.
FAQ: When do I get paid?
7. Review & Post
Lastly, you’ll review all the payment information you previously provided to ensure it is 100% accurate. After verifying your email, as well as phone number through SMS verification, you are done!
Once setup is complete, your listing is ready to take on bookings! You can manage everything from this point on through the easy-to-use TripAdvisor Rentals Dashboard.
