The 10 main benefits of having a good vacation rental software

We all know that the management of tourist accommodation is not always a rosy road. For this reason, today we want to bring you the 10 main benefits of having a good vacation rental software through these 10 problems that have surely arisen in your day to day, 10 phrases that more than one of you will have said repeatedly and then we explain how AvaiBook is able to solve them in order to make your work easier and help you grow your business.

 

10 PROBLEMS, 10 SOLUTIONS. DO THESE SENTENCES SOUND FAMILIAR TO YOU?

 

  1. “One client phoned to book, and while I was writing down the reservation, I got another one through a portal for the same dates before I could close them.”

AvaiBook synchronizes automatically with the main portals (Booking.com, Expedia, HomeAway…) and at the moment when you close dates, this information is updated to the rest of your platforms, thus eliminating overbooking.

 

  1. “Whenever I need to make any refurbish or have already committed dates etc, it’s a hassle to notify that on the web and portals so that I don’t get any reservations for those days.”

With the management board of AvaiBook, with a single click you can close or open dates so that no reservation can become effective in the period you specify.

 

  1. “I have little visibility, not only on my website but also on the portals, as I never appear in the top positions on them.”

Having the calendar always updated when synchronizing through our system will make you get better positions in portals, as it is something greatly prioritised for them.

 

  1. I’m not sure if the card is valid, if it’s not fraudulent, and I’m uncomfortable working with a POS and having to pay its commission.

AvaiBook automatically validates the card data. If it’s fraudulent or have no balance, our system detects it. In addition, we have an advanced and secure payment gateway with which you do not need a POS.

 

  1. “It’s a little chaos to break down the collection on the down payment, what I still have to collect, when to collect it, on what date you can no longer claim the refund etc.”

Everything is simplified with our panel, in which you will have a list of operations where you will see detailed operations performed, pending, dates and what reservations belong, as well as schedule the payment rules you want.

 

  1. “Conversion on my website is really low, I have a lot of visits, but they don’t translate into bookings.”

With a booking engine on your website, visitors can book anytime. The purchase process is so much faster and easier. With the AvaiBook booking engine on a customer website, conversion has always risen.

 

  1. “Sometimes I have forgotten to send an important notification to the traveler or sent several of them to him by mistake.”

Through our automatic email system, you can control and configure emails for different moments (before the stay, afterwards, notices…), as well as for employees, cleaning service etc.

 

  1. “Between reservations, traveler’s data, bills… I have a lot of Excel sheets to go crazy.”

With AvaiBook you will manage everything from a single panel, so that you can have everything under control easily and comfortably.

 

  1. “I want to grow and work with more apartments, but the management is very complicated and it is not possible for me.”

Our platform simplifies management and makes your business scalable. More apartments won’t mean more work for you.

 

  1. “I would like to have reservations for foreign travelers… but it is only possible to book in one language and that complicates it all.”

AvaiBook inserts the booking engine in multi-language format (English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French…) In an increasingly globalized world, don’t lose the foreign tourist in the first step!
