Airbnb Channel Manager

What is the Rentals United Vacation Rental Channel Manager? 

Rentals United is a channel manager or distribution software for worldwide short-term rental managers to advertise on major OTAs (online travel agencies), niche listings sites and other booking channels. Property management companies use our channel management software to avoid double bookings, automate their distribution and streamline their vacation rental business. 

We don’t just connect you to Airbnb! 

Through us, you can easily automate advertising your rental property on OTAs such as Airbnb,, Expedia, Vrbo / HomeAway, TripAdvisor, Agoda and many more. We’re one of the few vacation rental software providers that can help you list your vacation rental properties on Google Travel. You can choose from a large variety of different channels to connect to. And, thanks to our robust, up-to-date API connections, you'll never have to worry about double bookings. 

Superior synchronisation 

When it comes to synchronising your calendars, content and prices in real-time, a less-than-perfect connection is a very risky one. Do not settle for an iCal connection as it may give you overbookings. The two-way connections that we have with booking sites are best-of-breed: we’re the only vacation rental channel manager in the world to have have been named premier/preferred partner by Airbnb,, Vrbo and Tripadvisor. This also means that we can provide you with priority customer support. 

Connect via your PMS (property management system) or manually

You can upload your properties to Rentals United manually or through your property management software. Once you're connected to the rental platform(s) of your choice, you will receive your new bookings automatically when a guest books. 

Advanced pricing options

Take control of your pricing and maximise your profitability with advanced pricing settings. With Rentals United, you can choose between several different pricing models and set LOS discounts, last-minute discounts, extra guest fees and more. 

Online payment processing

You can charge your guests online and take payments via Stripe. This way, you don't need to carry payment terminals to your check-ins to be able to accept credit cards.


Yes with our Airbnb guest communication tool you're able to receive and reply to guest messages from Airbnb and Vrbo directly within your Rentals United account.
