RatePunk launched a feature that lets to negotiate Airbnb price
Recently listed as the number one travel extension on the Chrome Web Store, RatePunk just launched a feature letting its users negotiate Airbnb prices in one click.
Justin Albertynas, the CEO at RatePunk comments:
Every traveler can contact property owners before booking the Airbnb. The problem here is that you’d rarely meet someone who knows this fact, and even if they do, they never consider it a way to get a lower rate.
However, as he adds, it’s not the only problem. Besides not knowing, it’s also the part of negotiating that’s not a usual practice in the travel market. People aren’t used to offering their own price and agreeing on a personalized deal.
The CEO states:
The thing is that Airbnb property owners are often willing to negotiate. Imagine a very last-minute booking - they’re eager to rent it for a lower price rather than keep it empty, and that puts travelers in a position to hunt down a better price.
Instead of spending 20 minutes crafting a nice message requesting a lower price, RatePunk allows its users to negotiate it in one click.
Travelers can simply enter the price they’d like to pay and send it to the property owner. It also shows a recommended negotiation price, which is 15% of the original nightly rate.
