Escapia is a cloud-based vacation rental system by HomeAway Software, offering users assistance with managing reservations, accounting, property listings and distribution, and their own websites.
Escapia’s reservation management system incorporates lead management, front desk operations, and guest reviews. Users can view full complete guest histories, including all correspondence, extend reservations directly from within the calendar, produce customizable reservation reports, and let Escapia automatically generate reservation confirmations to send out to guests. Business performance can be viewed on customizable business dashboards, which include daily activity widgets such as check-ins and check-outs, open work orders, unread inquiries, and total rent booked, and can produce reports and graphs for year-to-year comparisons of inquiries, bookings, and income.
Escapia’s rate engine enables property managers to set up and adjust variable rates, special offers, discount plans, flexible charges and add-ons. Users can enter rates in bulk, and test pricing plans before activation, as well as using daily, weekly, and monthly rate calculation. Rates are automatically updated across Escapia and all other partner sites a property is listed on.
Escapia partners with multiple property listing and distribution sites, including HomeAway, VRBO, BookingPal, and FlipKey, with users able to choose where their properties are promoted. Availability calendars are automatically updated in real time between listing sites and users’ own records. Guest reviews of properties can also be automatically distributed from Escapia to selected partner channel sites.
