One of the biggest challenges facing vacation rental property managers is keeping systems and calendars up to date to avoid double bookings. The bane of rental managers, double bookings can lead to disgruntled customers and even bad online reviews, not to mention potential legal issues, which can undermine profit margins and bottom lines in competitive markets. But in order to avoid double bookings, systems must be constantly updated and monitored which can be time consuming and complicated. One very effective solution to the double bookings conundrum is a synchronized, streamlined online booking system.
