Listing Vacation Rentals on Multiple Portals - How to manage.

In a thriving vacation rental market, online booking portals keep on positioning themselves as agents between the property owner/manager and the guests by offering not only the technology but also the international marketing that otherwise might be very expensive for the property owner.

It is thanks to the creation of such marketplace that vacation rentals/holiday lettings and Peer-to-peer (p2p) letting has grown exponentially in recent years, and a quick search through these portals usually results in almost identical listings.



Vacation property owners and managers are listing their portfolio on multiple portals (channels) to maximize their exposure and increase their chances to rent out their properties. That is a great thing to do, until you realize you need to keep all these portals updated, all the time, to prevent futile requests and over-bookings.

Most of us have a combination of notebooks and spreadsheets that serve as a Central Reservation System for their vacation rentals. These work fine for some time, but the more properties in your portfolio, and the more people requiring to check availability, the more complex these systems become.

At occupancylevel.com we do exactly this! Experienced property managers have assisted us in building an app that aides peer colleagues to manage better their property availability, ensuring to have a solid, reliable and adequate central reservation system (CRS) for their business. Occupancylevel.com also features modules such as guest management, housekeeping, maintenance, services and a dashboard full of vital revenue and occupancy statistics.
