Whether you rent a few vacation properties or have condos, bed and breakfasts or any other kind of rentals, you know how tedious taking bookings and setting up rentals can be. Rental software is very expensive and getting a service to do it for you can mean big commissions and fees that you may not wish to part with. An online booking system offers you the best of all worlds while not breaking the bank. There are many reasons other than cost to choose an online booking system; perhaps one of the most important ones is that it can increase your sales dramatically. People want to know when, where and how much their rentals will cost, and usually they want that information right away. If they have to wait for a return email or phone call there is a good chance they may move on to another set of rentals. By offering a calendar, you can present your customers everything they need to know to make their booking on the spot. This means more reservations for you, which means more revenue. Another important reason for choosing an online booking system is that it puts you in complete control of your bookings.
You will have a flexible system that allows you to make any adjustments you need to make, offer any deals you want to offer, and choose who and when you want your bookings to be offered to, all without paying a dime of commission to a service for doing this. Do you want to set the times that your rentals will be available and ensure that those times will not be overbooked? This is a simple matter for a booking system. If you need a way to take bookings and get your deposits, this can be integrated right into your calendar and this in turn can be integrated into your website, making it a seamless experience for your customers. You can offer them the convenience of taking PayPal or a credit card, and you don't have to pay for a merchant account to do so. Need to include additional deposits into your fees, or do you have to charge certain taxes? Your online booking system is flexible enough to offer all of this as well as taking care of all of the calculations that go along with these additional charges.
An online booking system is easy to use, there is not a huge learning curve, so you will be up and running in no time. You can also clone your calendars quickly and easily, saving you time and allowing you to use as many calendars as you need for your rental company. Finally your clients can access your calendar 24 hours a day 7 days a week and it will always be up to date ensuring a seamless experience for them.
