"As many other experts agree, I, too, believe that the short-term rental industry will recover faster than most people think. Experts reckon that people, overwhelmed by the lockdown, are likely to start traveling again as soon as restrictions are lifted.
What’s more, travelers will still be able to practice social distancing. They will probably choose secluded accommodation (house/separate apartment/cabins) over hotels that usually have large guest turnovers and are mostly located in tourist areas. This will be a great opportunity for short-term rental businesses to open their doors to guests again.
Rural and “drive-to” destinations are expected to become extremely popular after the pandemic is over. I see many opportunities for domestic travel to develop and thrive. That is why hosts should seriously consider switching their focus to domestic travelers and their needs.
Also, cleaning will be taken to the next level, as now a lot of hosts are working hard to enhance their cleaning standards. This means more business for professional cleaning companies as well."
