Short-term rentals have exploded across America, with more people seeking the unique selections and personal touches of a short-term rental over traditional hotels. It’s a vibrant sector with new innovations and packages for consumers seeking a new “home away from home” experience for a weekend getaway or week-long adventure, or in some cases, extended stays.
However, while many short-term rental companies have risen in popularity in recent years, there are limited options that focus exclusively on college towns. At CollegeWeekends, they are positioned to change that for the better.
CollegeWeekends is an established short-term rental platform that specializes in college town rentals, with listings in over 25 markets including great college towns as well as expanding into youth sports destinations. They are notable for providing a simple and transparent platform for renters and property owners. CollegeWeekends also provide resources and town guides perfect for alumni, families, or sports fans in town for the big game. This all-inclusive package helps renters plan every aspect of their stay, including tips on the best local food, attractions, cool things to do, interactive maps and even tickets with its recent partnership with StubHub, enabling individuals and families to maximize their college town experience.
John Cunningham founded CollegeWeekends to help visitors to college towns experience the most from their short-term stay. According to him, college towns are attractive destinations throughout the year and there was not a great current solution to meet the needs of visitors, and CollegeWeekends was established to fill this gap. Together with his wife and co-founder, John transformed the brand to provide not only top-notch properties but exclusive resources.
CollegeWeekends is quickly becoming the go-to platform thanks to its unparalleled services that include a user-friendly interface for searching listings, booking properties, and gaining access to other helpful tools.
They established a transparent payment mechanism for renters with a 10% service fee for all bookings – removing all hidden fees or misleading costs. Renters will never be charged until they book a property, so they can rent confidently and book directly from their mobile device.
Whether families are in town for a college visit – or a group of friends is visiting to watch a big game – one of the key challenges in any town is seeing it from an insider’s perspective. CollegeWeekends has solved this problem with recommendations full of college town favorites, including restaurants, sports bars, shops, tours and event tickets. Additionally, the add-ons and package deals allow property owners to take their renters’ weekend to the next level by including items like game tickets, meal vouchers, and transportation with their rental.
Homeowners can register with CollegeWeekends to make the most out of their properties. Just like renters, they can access a transparent billing system with no hidden charges. Also, the CollegeWeekends two-way rating system ensures that they can provide renter feedback and be confident about who is booking their property.
