How can I improve my response rate as an owner? Updated February 24, 2022 22:12 Keeping a high response rate is easier than you think! Simply reply to a renter's new message, whether it be for a booking request, an inquiry, or an InstantBook, within 24 hours. You can improve your response rate by: Responding to new booking request messages within 24 hours Replying to new inquiries within 24 hours Replying to new InstantBook messages within 24 hours Responding to a new message after 24 hours or letting a booking request expire after 48 hours will lower your response rate. Your response rate can also affect the position of your RV listing in the search results.
