Put yourself in your guests’ shoes. Imagine pulling up to a hotel in the age before the internet. The vacancy sign is blazing a warm welcome against the cold, dark night. You unload the car and head to the lobby with the family and a big smile on your face. But they’re all booked up—and the next stop is 50 miles down the road.
That smile quickly fades, and you swear off that hotel chain for life! When it comes to booking vacation properties in today’s world, the internet is the highway and popular booking sites are your vacancy sign. Don’t anger your guests with incorrect information. Use an online channel manager for vacation rentals to make updating unit availability a snap!
