Rent Responsibly: The Bridge Program: Eclipse Edition

On April 8, 2024, destinations across New York State will be in the path for the Great North American Eclipse – predicted to be the single-biggest mass travel event in the US. The Bridge Program with Rent Responsibly activates STR hosts in your destination to not just provide a stellar guest experience but also support your elevated destination management needs during the eclipse.

Rent Responsibly is the STR industry’s community-building and education platform for hosts. Our DMOs x STRs Bridge Program connects tourism organizations to their local STR host community through a custom-branded campaign leading up to a big destination event or important time of year.

  • Help local STR operators prepare for community challenges of a big destination event through compliance support and good neighborliness education
  • Work with STRs to maximize the destination event’s economic benefit with marketing tips and in-destination guest guidance

  • Foster connectivity and collaboration with local hosts for success long after the event
