Our research shows that over 50% of holidaymakers book with an owner who responds to their enquiry within 3 hours, whilst only 29% booked with an owner who took up to 24 hours to reply and less than 10% with owners who took up to 3 days. If you're looking to boost your bookings, sign up to receive enquiries on your mobile phone. You will still continue to receive booking enquiries by email, and they will still be visible in your HomeAway.co.uk account. This free service simply allows you to respond to enquiries faster.
