Will the short-term rental market come out of this crisis stronger than ever? This was a key area of discussion between Catherine and Amanda Dyjecinski, Chief Brand and Marketing Officer of onefinestay. Amanda believes the privacy of a home or villa will be an attractive proposition post-crisis, but this must be combined with reassurances on cleaning and housekeeping standards.
She argues that humans are not rationale beings and make their decisions with their emotions, so it’s going to be important how they feel about risk. In the short-to-medium term she agrees we’ll likely see a lot of extended family and friends travel, as people seek to reconnect with those they’ve been separate from during lockdown. onefinestay’s portfolio of luxury homes and villas is well-positioned to meet this demand.
