How to manage accommodation in the age of the Crown virus (COVID-19)



Nowadays when we are at risk of viruses, these solutions can help you avoid all unnecessary contact with your guests. This is certainly another plus of MyRent smart locks as well as the MyRent system of self check-in guest registration.

Do you live in Zagreb and have a house on the sea? Do you have an apartment in the center that you rent, and you live outside the center? Do you have a house or apartment on one of our beautiful islands? Want to reduce contact with guests for a variety of reasons? If the answer is yes, then you may be interested in these practical tips for managing accommodation facilities.



Automatic check in / check out involves a type of smart lock or safe that allows guests to enter the facility on their own. MyRent offers several kind of smart locks which make your business extremely easy. Using this solution, you do not have to be present at check-in, which is great when guests arrive late or late so this solution is great for anyone who does not live at the address of the object being rented. It is also useful if you do not want to take risks if your guests come from countries affected by the corona virus.





Like any other accommodation unit, it is a must be active in as many ways as possible to achieve the best possible sales.

One way is to have your own website where with SEO data you can influence that you are more visible in the market to potential guests.
This can be achieved in 2 ways, take a template or booking engine and embed it in your page or make your page on some of the popular tools like this WordPress.

Another way is to advertise on  booking portal such as:, AirBNB, HomeAway, Expeda, HomeToGo etc.…
You need a system for this method Channel Manager which connects all these portals and which synchronizes calendars, prices and reservations



Similar to smart locks, there are many solutions that allow owners not to be present at the facility, and to be able to control things like air conditioning, heating, lights, etc. In this way, your guests can be greeted by a warm and lit facility. There are even apps that allow you to measure the amount of noise in an object. In case the amount of noise exceeds a certain limit, you get a notification and then you can react in time that you have no problems with the neighbors.

Whether you want to control your guests or just give them a "warm" welcome, tools like this are a great solution.



Since you do not live at the address of the accommodation facility, it is necessary to know people who can help you in various situations. We mean electricians, plumbers and other various "masters". Surely sooner or later there will be a situation when you will need their services. So it is good to be prepared in advance and react as soon as possible when something unexpected happens.

Make a list of all important people and save it to your mobile phone under the contact group of apartments or similar. Also, it is very wise to have such a list somewhere in the apartment, so that someone (usually a neighbor) can get to those contacts if you are prevented.

And lastly, trust the neighbors and leave them the key in case of any emergency intervention.


The Chinese do not say for no reason:
"A good neighbor is an invaluable treasure."
An old Chinese proverb



Since you do not live nearby, it is imperative that you have some sort of security system in place if you own valuables in your facility. The most common solutions in this regard are security cameras, motion sensors, alarms and the like. Many of these systems can be connected to your cell phone. In case the alarm is activated, you will receive a notification on your mobile phone.

Do not forget to mention to your guests if you use one of these models of protection, because the issue of privacy is certainly important when vacationing in an accommodation facility.

When installing my smart locks, MyRent usually comes across a fairly simple and practical solution, and that is fake security cameras. Fake security cameras are a great solution because they are very cheap, you can install them yourself without any problems, and your apartment looks much safer.



Since you will not be present at the check-in itself, it is definitely advisable to take some steps to make guests feel welcome.

Some of the ideas are:

  • Let the guest know that you have successfully received the reservation
  • Leave your guests brochures about hiking trails, beaches, bike trails and the like
  • Recommendations for restaurants, cafes, museums, galleries, nightclubs.
  • Public transport information.
  • Contact us a few days before arrival and send the specified information by e-mail or simply send them a link from your website where the guest can visually see where he is coming and what is in the vicinity

Sending such emails is not difficult. Systems like MyRent's, which have email templates, greatly simplify all communication with guests.
Simply set up the system and let myRent do it all for you.

Trust us, the guests will be grateful great review!




Why not make extra money? Why not offer guests a trip (PLITVICE LAKES) or transfer (eg to your apartment). All of this is at our fingertips, we just need to be a little creative.

That’s why inside MyRent, there’s a module called guest portal. With it, you can offer your guests to charge for additional content with an online payment gateway.

And not only that, the guest portal provides guests with accurate information on where to come, your contacts, online map, weather forecast.

Perhaps the most important thing is that the guest portal also provides guest registration in eVzitior.

Today, it is extremely important that guests feel safe and if guests can check in to eVizior themselves without direct contact (that you touch your passport or ID card) all the better for the guests, but also for you.

Earn extra, but also provide additional protection to guests in the age of Corona Virus (COVID-19) and let guests enter the apartment themselves and let guests log in to eVizitor themselves
