You are your own Merchant of Records. Rentals United solely manages the transaction flow between the channels and the property manager. We will never require you to sign over control in areas of money, terms, and policies.
We create a glossy, fast-loading and elegant page for each of the vacation rentals you add on Rentals United. Guests can check your pricing & availability right away, proceed to checkout and confirm the reservation.
Centralise bookings from multiple listing sites as well as all your guest messages - in one inbox! Connect your email or your Airbnb account and start corresponding to your guest messages straight from your Rentals United account.
A unique tool that analyses the content of your listings and instantly delivers a tailored report that shows what needs improvements. Using requirements from top vacation rental sites and OTAs, the Quality Checker will analyse the essentials you need to get listed and rank high!
Once you have signed up to Rentals United, we will ask you to upload your properties manually using our 15-minute property upload tool, or if you have an Airbnb account you can pull your listing straight from them.
Run your listings through the Rentals United Quality Checker. This optimisation report will state where improvements are needed for each property to increase their marketability and reach. From the amount of images at the right resolution to whether rates or amenities are missing. Don’t underestimate the power of the Quality Checker - the time spent on your rental optimisation will be rewarded with improved conversion rate in the channels.
Get your guests to book directly using our optimised Book Direct pages. With every property you upload, we automatically create a sleek property page advertising your prices, availability, photos and content. Guests can check your pricing & availability right away, proceed to checkout and confirm the reservation.
If you already have an account with a channel, your onboarding will be instantaneous. For connections with channels that you weren’t previously connected with, the onboarding can vary from 24 hours to a couple of weeks.
Use specialised software to analyse your market, properties and bookings. Your listing will be updated daily based on changes in supply and demand in the market, day of week, seasonality, and local events.
This is particularly helpful as guests nowadays can compare pricing instantly online, it’s increasingly essential to use a Yield/ Revenue Management software to stay competitive.
You can now charge guests cards directly in your RU account.
Thanks to our integration with payment providers MangoPay and Stripe (fully SCA / PSD2 compliant) you can accept online payments directly in your Rentals United dashboard. Your customers can book instantly and pay by credit or debit card. Accept more bookings and guests from everywhere while avoiding payment delays or fraud bookings.
