BookingPal

Vacation rental distribution platform for property managers

3.5/5 (6 reviews)

BookingPal overview

BookingPal provides rental property owners and managers with a way to increase their online presence by distributing property listings across multiple leading channel partners. It is a centralized booking platform that enables users to enjoy one single contract across various partners such as travel agents (OTAs), property listing sites, GDSs (Global Distribution Systems) and meta-search sites. BookingPal manages all financial and contract-related transactions between the property owners/managers and their guests so there is no need to spend time repeatedly logging information across channels.

BookingPal shares listings for properties such as vacation homes (including timeshare resorts), RV parks, campgrounds and corporate housing throughout six continents. Management professionals have the option to select only those partners that best fit their business model and can appear in their own choice of distribution channels. All changes made on the BookingPal platform including rates, availability, calendars, specials and promotions, are updated automatically and synchronized across all selected channel partners.

The work flow page of BookingPal brings all the reservations in the manager’s account together in one place. An 8-step process assures that all bookings are seen to properly, requiring an action to be taken before moving onto the next phase. These steps can be customized to any order and tailored to each property manager’s booking methods.

It's OK but super slow bringing up new channels for existing condos

It's OK, but slow on marketing your growing inventory. Communication is poor at best and billing is sporadic, you have to ask them to send invoices and remind them to pay the channels they do direct billing too, also remind when they are not direct billing channels. When you do get an invoice you need to be sure you reconcile it very carefully due to over billing. Too much overhead that is supposed to make it easier.cost is low

Distribution to all major sales channels through a commission-based model. A wide range of products which help serious property managers to increase their distribution, improve revenues and grow their business.

Even with all the kinks, this software cuts out a lot of manual data entry and saved me valuable time.The pricing is fair. There are not many other companies that provide this service as of yet. Product is a great idea and will save tons of time if all the kinks in the software are straightened out.
