Lifetime Bronze Membership - Frequently Asked Questions
Have you ever signed up for a website only to have the rates go up and up and up? What if you could purchase a LIFETIME membership? Under our exclusive new program - you can!
Here is what you get:
- Lifetime BRONZE membership for $399/listing - that's less than ONE YEAR on most other platforms!
- Unlimited Special Offers for Life!
- ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER OF LIFETIME MEMBERSHIPS WILL BE SOLD!
- Receive a credit each year, equivalent to the Bronze Membership toward any Gold or Silver upgrade (see table, below)
- Lifetime memberships pay for themselves in 2-3 years - regardless of which plan you choose!
- Property Managers are not eligible for this offer
Is this plan right for me?
The Lifetime Bronze Membership is a good fit for those owners who plan to own a vacation rental for at least 2-3 more years. The plan will more than pay for itself after about two years. If you are not sure or if you plan to get out of the vacation rental business, then our annual or monthly subscriptions would be a better choice. Learn more about those plans here.
NOTE: Property managers are not eligible for this offer.
What if I'm not quite ready to commit?
We will never subject you to high pressure sales tactics. When you join ALAVHR, we want you to take your time to decide whether our site is a good fit for you. That's why we will give you a full SIX MONTHS to evaluate the site. If during that time you would like to convert to a Lifetime Bronze membership, we will apply 100% of your subscription payments (whether annual or monthly) toward the Lifetime Bronze membership - up to a maximum of $149. That way you will get the same price and benefits as if you had made this choice when you first signed up - no risk! Please contact us
when you are ready to convert and we will provide you with a special discount code. You may always choose to convert to a lifetime membership after the first six months without the credit for your current subscription.
What if I sell my property?
Membership is fully transferable to another property for the first 12 months after purchase (new property, same owner).
What if I have more than one listing?
Each listing is individually eligible for this special offer. You may choose one or more listings for the Lifetime Bronze membership. No other quantity discounts apply.
What if I currently have a Silver or Gold membership?
Your Silver or Gold membership has an expiration date (typically one year from date of purchase). You will still enjoy all the privileges of your Silver or Gold level until the upgrade expires. You can check the expiration date on the "Paid Services" tab of your listing. Your Lifetime Bronze listing will never expire.
Can I upgrade to a Silver or Gold membership?
Silver or Gold Upgrades are available for purchase in 90 Day, Six Month or One Year increments. You would only pay the Upgrade fee over the Bronze rate. Silver and Gold Lifetime Memberships are not available at this time. For example, currently the Silver Plan is $50 higher than a Bronze Plan. If you choose to upgrade to Silver (or renew your Silver status), the cost to you will only be the upgrade fee ($50/year) instead of the original price of $199/year. As you can see, your Lifetime Membership will pay for itself very quickly!
This is crazy - How will the website make money???
First, we are limiting the number of Lifetime Memberships. We have nearly 300 paid listings now and are adding more listings each month. This is a way to get in on the ground floor of a great deal for those owners who expect to keep their rentals for several years - and our way of rewarding you for your loyalty and support. Lifetime Members are not required to pay another penny to keep their listing and they will have the option to purchase certain upgrades, such as hierarchy points and our popular Gold and Silver plans.

"I am enjoying using your site with its ease of use and no booking fees for guest. With the Industry adding more and more fees (on both sides) and forgetting how they got so large, ie us owners, its refreshing to have a platform to advertise where they keep us in mind. I have gotten several reservations for our condos and know it will continue to grow thru word of mouth. As an owner myself, I really appreciate the enhancement to watermark our photos. Very simple to do and if you are unsure, Susan will assist you to get it done. I had my photos stolen off another site and created a new listing to scam guests on Craigs list of all places. I will use every tool I can find to prevent this again. The watermark does not hinder the ability to see the photo but because my name is front and center, no one will want to right click and save. After asking, Susan was also able to disable the right click and save from a computer (doesn't work on a tablet or mobile device though) . Thank you for all you are doing to help all rental property owners in the area maximize our earning potential. Being such a young business I have high hopes this can become a games changer for all of us in the future." - Kathy G., June 24, 2018 See Kathy's Listings Here
"We listed our Orange Beach condo, Silver Beach 803 as a vacation rental about 9 months ago. We have had a great response with inquiries and bookings and will continue to list our property here. They are heavily marketing in the Alabama region and promoting in multiple areas. Susan is very responsive to questions and issues." - Brenda B., September 25, 2018 See Brenda's Listing Here
"Some of my nicest guests have reserved through ALAVHR. This site is great for them as they don't have to pay a reservation fee and for me because it lets me correspond with them without having to go through a "middle man." I believe ALAVHR is doing a great job and look forward to a long and successful relationship with them." Linda G. July 5, 2018 See Linda's Listings Here
"I love that I can offer guests a legitimate website and have complete control over the booking and deposits!
Other companies charge a fee for this, a fee for that, oh and don’t honor your wishes for a refundable damage deposit �. It’s like banging your head to get anything from that company of anything happens!! This website saves the GUESTS AND Owners all those crazy fees!! Susan had been amazing to work with as well! Are you an owner!? STOP WASTING YOUR MONEY using those other sites!
Guest looking to book- don’t go anywhere else!!!!" - Jami B. July 31, 2018 See Jami's Listings Here
