In the rental business, nothing tarnishes a company’s relationships with its customers more than disputes around damage. It’s simply a CRM black hole. Whether arguments about existing damage at check-out versus check-in, different rules about what constitutes damage, or disagreements around costs, it’s always a lose-lose situation costing millions in lost claims and lost customers. Plus, disputes revolving around damage impact customer relationships, hurt customer service, and expose rental companies to negative press, ratings and reviews.

Ask the Expert: To Rent or Not to Rent Your Home? (Or car)

What to do when your Airbnb is wrecked by AirPnP or your FlightCar has its wings clipped.

BY BRYAN VAN GORDER

Renting out your car or home to travelers (or, conversely renting a car or home from others while traveling) has become big business. In fact, a Barclays research note published earlier this year suggests that Airbnb, one of the most widely known property rental services, is poised to overtake a majority of the established hotel chains within the next few years in terms of bookings.

USA Today Travel: This app takes the anxiety out of reporting damage on rental cars or short-term apartment rentals

Car Rentals, Vacation Rentals

The app is already making waves in the travel industry, taking home the prize for Best Travel App of 2015 at the Elliot Awards, beating out stalwarts like Google Maps, Waze and TripAdvisor.
