Great Sales Pitch - Poor Execution - Will take MONTHS to Move Forward with this Comany

2019-06-14

Trouble tickets are not in queued for work for weeks, many taking a month or more for response.

Pros

Comprehensive Channel List Add on Support Services

Cons

Stripe integration does not work effectively, leaving huge risk for credit card fraud. Channel reservation data is lost in the translation.

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

2017-04-14

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.

Pros

cost is low

Cons

lack of communication lack of good support lack of follow-through lack of regular invoicing, you need to give them repeated reminders lack of accuracy creates double bookings sometimes a reservation is not passed from the channel etc..

BookingPal is a good solution

2018-03-13

Good control of my holiday letting business.

Pros

BookingPal offers a lot of nice figures such as channel distribution, payment integration and etc.

Cons

I do not like the price structure with all the Opt-in's. In my opinion, there are too many which may lead to potential customers are looking at other alternatives.

Waste of Time and Energy

2021-05-26

Terrible - Now that Marriott doesn't require us to integrate with BookingPal we can't wait to stop using their dreadful platform.

Pros

The price is very cheap because we were forced to use it to integrate with a specific platform.

Cons

Dreadful UX/UI. Hundreds of bugs that never get resolved.

Great company to work with

2017-12-19

Distribution to all major sales channels through a commission-based model.

Pros

A wide range of products which help serious property managers to increase their distribution, improve revenues and grow their business.

Cons

They had a bit of a bumpy ride and had to figure some things out but managed to turn their service around. Glad to see the development they took.

You get what you pay for.

2017-06-07

Even with all the kinks, this software cuts out a lot of manual data entry and saved me valuable time.

Pros

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.

Cons

The invoicing and payment is not streamlined.

Didnt work so well for me

2017-01-10

However, i've used a competitor (Rentals United) for a long time and they are able to onboard me in few hours (instead of few days) The support was not so reactive for Europe and most of the time I had to wait few days.
