In order to book your stay permanently, it is no longer enough to just appear on one booking platform. In the age of Airbnb, booking.com, expedia, and more, guests have a variety of options to find out exactly what their accommodation offers before booking.
According to the research, the two main reasons guests use booking platforms are the ability to "compare many offers quickly and easily" and "find the cheapest offer quickly and easily." This means that hosts are effectively forced to offer accommodation on as many booking platforms as possible, in addition to their own websites. There are many other challenges with short-term rentals, such as communicating with guests, turning keys, preparing accommodation for the next guest, etc.
Property Management Software
Various software solutions that support hosts in coordinating various booking platforms can make the management of vacation properties easier. This booking software facilitates successful channel management. Well-known vacation rental software providers such as Smoobu, Guesty or BookingSync provide landlords and property managers with a variety of tools to make vacation rentals more profitable and efficient. In addition to reservations and reservation systems, they also offer the possibility to create a website, handle guest communications through the system, etc.
