The risk of guests posting unfair reviews
Reviews posted by the guests about rentals are not always entirely objective. The weather, snow conditions and other external factors that upset vacationers expectations can have an impact on how they feel about the rental. In the event of a clash between the guest and the owner, posting a negative review may be a way for the renter to exercise pressure on the owner, or even a way of getting their revenge. Fortunately, this doesn’t happen very often, but it can happen. Such cases need to be taken into account, as once a negative review has been posted it is very difficult or even impossible to delete it. And sometimes just one negative comment is all it takes to drastically reduce the number of requests.
MediaVacationRentals protects you against poor or unfair reviews
To avoid poor or unfair reviews being published while protecting and informing potential guests, MediaVacationRentals has introduced the following system:
Negative reviews about the property are not published.
However,they are systematically investigated to check:
If the complaints made about the rental turn out to be based on fact, the rental in question may be subject to a “Quality Information” rider, which may be removed at a later date and at the owner’s request if the problems identified have been corrected.
