Nowadays, knowing how well your property is doing online is super important for owners. Analytics gives you useful info that can make a big difference to your business.

Imagine seeing how many people checked out your place, what they liked best, and how you compare to others. It's like having a tool that helps you make smarter decisions and stay ahead.

Whether new to hosting or a pro, monitoring your property's performance isn't just useful; it's essential. Let's find out why tracking analytics can be a game-changer for property owners everywhere.

What are Analytics 

The Analytics Dashboard is brilliant for keeping tabs on how well your property is doing over time. It gives you up-to-the-minute insights into your bookings, a peek into customer behaviour, and an overview of your sales stats. This info is gold because it lets you see what’s going well and what isn’t. For example, if there's a sudden dip in bookings, you can look into why and sort it out.

Explore Your Analytics Tab

Within the Analytics tab, you'll find a range of dashboards providing real-time business reports to monitor both past performance and future projections. Also, you can compare your results with those of your competitors.

Analytics Dashboard

In the Analytics dashboard, you can monitor the number of room nights you've sold and view your revenue through various helpful charts.

With the customisation feature, you can select up to four report previews to display on your dashboard. Simply find the customisation button at the top and choose or deselect the reports to tailor the dashboard to your preferences.

Demand Data

On the Demand page, you can discover when travellers intend to visit your city, how long they plan to stay, and how the traveller demand for your city stacks up against your own bookings.

Pace of Bookings

On the Pace Report page, you can monitor your future bookings and compare your performance to previous years.

Sales Insights

In the Sales Insights section, you can examine the sales generated from guests who have stayed at your property and contrast them with sales figures from previous years.

Booker Insights

The Booker Insights report details your current guests, helping you better understand your customer base. You can see which countries your guests are booking from and their reasons for travelling.

Cancellation Characteristics

In this dashboard, you can observe the cancellation patterns for your property. This helps you understand if guests typically cancel their bookings within a specific timeframe before their stay dates.

Manage Competitive Set

On this page, you can manage your competitive set. Properties are selected based on their similarity to yours in terms of location, type, price, review score, star rating, meal plans, and facilities. Once saved, you can only update your competitive set after 30 days.

Also, you can customise your Analytics dashboard from this page.

Market Dynamics in Short-Term Rentals

Staying ahead in the short-term rental market requires a deep understanding of the factors influencing demand, pricing, and occupancy. Analytics plays a vital role by providing property managers with actionable insights into market trends and consumer behaviour. By closely monitoring these dynamics, from industry trends to individual unit shifts, managers can predict demand fluctuations, spot profitable opportunities, and make informed decisions that align with market conditions.

Adapting to market changes is crucial, given evolving consumer preferences and external factors like local events or seasonal variations. Key Data offers a comprehensive view of these elements, presenting information in a user-friendly format for quick analysis and response. Armed with this knowledge, property managers can tailor their offerings to attract the right audience at the right time, ensuring their properties remain appealing and financially rewarding year-round.

How To Use Booking Analytics to Enhance Your Rental Business

Consolidate and Organise Your Booking Data

To start, gather and organise booking data from various sources such as your website, online travel platforms, social media, and guest feedback. Use booking management software or data integration tools to automate this process and centralise the data. 

Analyse and Visualize Your Data

Use a range of tools and techniques, including descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics, along with dashboards, reports, and charts. This approach allows you to grasp your booking performance, identify trends, patterns, and opportunities, and benchmark them against your goals and competitors. Also, segment your guests based on their behaviours, preferences, and needs using booking analytics, enabling you to tailor personalised offers and experiences for them.

Implement and Monitor Booking Strategies

Use analytics to optimise pricing through dynamic pricing, yield management, or rate parity to boost revenue and occupancy. Improve marketing efforts with email campaigns, social media engagement, or loyalty programs to attract and retain guests. Enhance operational efficiency with inventory management, staff scheduling, or quality control measures to cut costs and increase effectiveness. Upgrade customer service with tools like chatbots, online check-in options, or feedback surveys to enhance guest satisfaction and loyalty.

Evaluate and Improve Booking Outcomes

Use booking analytics to improve your booking outcomes. Monitor key performance indicators such as revenue, occupancy, average daily rate, revenue per available room, guest satisfaction, and loyalty. Use the analytics to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Experiment with different strategies, learn from the outcomes and make necessary improvements.


Using Analytics is important for enhancing your rental business. With these insights, you can strategically optimise pricing, understand market trends, and tailor your marketing efforts to attract and retain guests effectively. This data-driven approach not only boosts revenue and occupancy rates but also enhances operational efficiency and guest satisfaction. 

Also, by continuously monitoring and adapting to market dynamics, you can stay competitive in the ever-evolving hospitality landscape, ensuring sustained growth and success for your rental business.
