Comments: if a person has listed his property in Air b n b , or booking.com or home away ,etc .. and lots of complication to take care bookings, I recommend booking automation to avoid any mistake in bookings and much more comfortably ,since the host will have all his bookings from different places only in one master calendar .

Pros: my company team really liked the support from booking automation. They actually do the job for client to set up all listings and that makes it very much easy .
they are always available to help for any question or any guiding .
The best part of that is the channel manager that has integration to all rental pages .

Cons: perhaps the price is bit high and would be great if they consider discount or offer to their permanant customers .

Comments: BA is our entire business and everything runs on it.

Pros: This is our 4th year of using booking automation, we have grown from just 10 properties to 50+ and we are thankful we found this gem. It is very advanced and robust software which is the reason we have been able to scale our operation. The functionality and flexibility of the product never cease to amaze me

Cons: It takes a while to learn about all the features of the software, 4 years later we are still discovering cool features we wish we found out earlier

Best Customer Service Ever!

Comments: I have about 8 properties that manage or cohost on AirBnb and I wanted to expand my reach to Expedia, Booking.com, and VRBO, without risking double bookings. I also have to do accounting to cohosts or owners and needed an easy way to calculate revenue. This software helps with that, and hopefully will make communications with guests automated and easy too.

Pros: To be honest, I am still learning the software and making sure that I have it all set up correctly. The interface isn't perfect and pretty, but it is intuitive and easy to learn.
The BEST thing, however, is the customer service. My rep helped me get everything set up in the beginning and responds to all of my questions within a very short amount of time! He is so fast and knowledgeable, and it has made this learning curve and experience stellar! I highly recommend it!

Cons: Some items are unclear what they pertain to, and some things I feel like I need some coding skills. But I am still learning my way around the software.

This tool saves me a lot of time while managing my AirBnBs

Comments: Highly recommend this tool to any serious short term rental manager who values their time.

Pros: They have thought of every possible feature that can save you time while managing your short-term rentals. The dashboard page is my favorite is it summarizes everything I need to know in one place. The charge-automation feature is a huge time saver as well - it used to take me 3+ hours every night to charge all my booking.com and Expedia credit cards for my bookings. Now its only a few minutes.

Cons: Given all the features there is a bit of a learning curve. While the tool does everything well, it could use a face-lift to make it look nicer.

Instant Customer Support with every feature you can dream of
