Manage bookings for holiday rental properties
Keeping track and managing your bookings in a holiday rental business can be overwhelming.
At Bookster we focus on 3 pillars to support our clients attract bookings, manage bookings and manage guests.
We use these 3 pillars for planning and implementing our developments each year.
So how do you manage your bookings for your holiday rental properties?
Advice to manage bookings
No matter what solution you use, you need to consider how you will protect yourself and your guests from cyber crime.
With the growth of cyber threats and online crime, it’s important to protect your client and bookings data with password security.
Using tech to manage bookings
♥ Store your bookings
Where do you store all past, current, and potential bookings?
With Bookster, the storage of your bookings is a thing of the past.
Your bookings are stored securely, with 2 Factor Authentication, and can be accessed by you, with limited access roles for your team.
♥ Keep on top of daily tasks
How do you stay on top of which of your guests have been contacted?
In Bookster you can view at a glance which guests have received their Booking confirmations, Payment requests, Damage deposit requests, and Arrival instructions.
♥ Filter and analyse your bookings
How do you evaluate your bookings to find business opportunities?
Your analysis tools help you view your business over your selected timescales, and create a holiday rental accounting data export for your Accountants.
Prioritise your time and efforts with the best marketing channels for your properties.
You can see which channels are working for you easily in Booksters property Insights or the exportable Booking Reports.
- View revenue and bookings per channel for a clear understanding of which channels bring you the most bookings and highest revenue.
- Plan how and when you need to market your properties by viewing your average length of stay and how far in advance of arrival bookings are placed (days).
- Bolster your efforts or plan what to do for underperforming properties by analysing bookings for each property to break down how they have performed.
We help you plan for the future by helping you dig into the details of your business.
♥ Search your bookings
How do you search through your bookings to understand the day-to-day changes in your business?
We help you see what is happening right now, with tools to evaluate the bookings in your holiday rental business.
- Quickly view new bookings, arrivals, departures, payments due and overdue, and damage deposits due and overdue in your dashboard.
- Identify and plan actions to fill gaps by checking the timeline calendar view, which shows which bookings are in place, and which properties have fewer bookings or big gaps.
We’ll help you build relationships by identifying repeat guests, highlighted in your holiday lettings software.
♥ Provide data for your Owners
How do you provide for your owners?
Property Owners look to holiday rental agencies for updates on their investments. We’re here to support Owner Relationships.
