The best Channel Manager for Airbnb is one that actively manages a full (two way API) connection with Airbnb.
The correct data will be shared between Airbnb and your property management software meaning you save your precious resources whilst maximising bookings at the optimum rate.

What software integrates with Airbnb?

A range of software companies and channel managers integrate directly with Airbnb, or use the iCal connection.
To choose which is best for you:
1. Understand your market - are you looking for self-catering software or hotel software?
2. Choose if you want a direct connection which shares property listing information, bookings and prices, or an iCal which shares calendar availability.
3. Find a software that fits your price needs whilst providing a reliable service.
4. Demo with the software to understand how the connection will benefit your business and attract you bookings.
Bookster is a software for property managers with self-catering properties, and offers both a world-class direct connection and an iCal connection.
