What is an VRBO digital guidebook?

Digital guidebooks are transforming the boring binder that has been a staple in hotels and vacation rentals for the last fifty years. Digital guidebooks can be easily updated 24×7, are accessible by guests before their arrival, offer privacy controls, tracking, digital maps and so much more.

Below, we’ll break down the core features of a digital guidebook and why you need one for your VRBO vacation rental. Worried about guests that won’t be tech-savvy? Don’t be, we offer a one-click option to generate a complimenting PDF. More on that below.

A message from our founder.

A total game changer for our VRBO vacation rental business.

When my wife & I went live with our two vacation rentals on VRBO, we were inundated with the same questions again and again. We were tired of answering them and our VRBO guests likely didn't want to ask them to begin with. With my background in technology, I knew it could be done better.

Since implementing goGuidebook with our own VRBO rentals, the number of questions we receive has gone down by 80%. Guests are happier and we're happier. I knew I had to bring that technology to other vacation rental owners.
