Manually updating pricing & calendars in 20 sites
Manually inserting bookings & cancellations in PMS
Time-consuming & impractical processes
Without Rentals United, we would have to hire more employees just to update calendars and prices!
Back in 2016, Prague for You manager Anthony Chevalier decided to start working with Vreasy PMS and Rentals United Channel Manager. The two systems are connected, which means that Anthony and his team only update pricing and calendars in Vreasy and they’re instantly sent via Rentals United to all the listing sites connected. Any booking or cancellation sent by the connected listing sites is instantly reﬂected in Anthony’s PMS, Vreasy.

As the very name suggests, Prague for You is is a property management company based in wonderful Prague. Active since 2014, the apartment rentals company manages now over 80 properties. Manager Anthony Chevalier shares his testimonial on how they started to work with Rental United, benefiting from the integration with Vreasy PMS.
Back in 2016 Prague for You were managing in-house over 40 city-centre apartments and advertising them on major websites.
“We used to change our prices for every apartment every night at 12 AM,” says Anthony, “manually updating the prices of 41 properties on 20 websites on a daily basis would mean employing two people just for that task.”
Finding a technology solution was a must to cut time and have staff concentrate on guests. Anthony decided to start working with Vreasy (PMS) and Rentals United (Channel Manager). The two systems are connected which means that Anthony and his team only update pricing in Vreasy and they’re instantly sent via Rentals United to all the listing sites they work with. All bookings and cancellations made by the sites are instantly reﬂected in the Vreasy dashboard.
Prague for You was already advertising on many booking platforms before starting to use Rentals United, which implied connecting those existing accounts to maintain reviews, stats and ranking. The transition was smooth, the accounts were not lost, just migrated to a channel management solution.
Today, Anthony advertises over 85 properties on 45 websites via Rentals United. “Most of our bookings come from Airbnb, Booking.com, HomeAway but also direct reservations from our own website,” says Anthony, “Our customers are mostly European and North American.”
Anthony is looking forward to the launch of Rentals United new functionalities and integrations. "It will be very handy to control everything from one platform," he says "being able to manage dynamic pricing via Rentals United is another time-saviour for me!".

Are the listings site's commissions included in your pricing?
No, they're not. Some listing sites add their commission on top of the prices you save. These channels want your net rates. Other channels will charge their commission from the prices you save. For the later, you have the possibility to mark your rates up to cover for their commission. We inform you in details how the channels work after you sign-up.
Are other connections included in your pricing?
Rentals United integrates with tech providers that help manage short-term rentals automatically. These providers include Property Management Systems, Payment Providers, Yield Managers and Operational Tools. In order to use them, you have to sign up and contract their services, and pay them separately.
What does your pricing include?
The Rentals United fee includes storing your property info, using the Channel Manager and all of our other tools: Guest Planner, Booking Engine, Guest Communication, Quality Checker, iCal sync and Multi-Calendar. There's no set-up fee: you will get training during the first month of signing up and larger accounts will get a Key Account Manager to help them grow.
