Why choose the Rentals United channel manager
Here’s what makes our industry-leading Booking.com channel management solution unique:
1. Map multi-unit properties
The Rentals United channel manager has the unique ability to map your existing multi-unit listings from Booking.com. Once the mapping is complete, we automatically sync your pricing and availability in real-time.
Managing rentals under the same address as multi-units is beneficial because it can help you rank higher in Booking.com search results.
We have a sophisticated multi-unit algorithm that allows you to optimise the management of your multi-unit listings. For example, you can choose to clump your calendars together or handle them separately. Read more about our unique multi-unit algorithm.
2. Apply Promotions in bulk
Our state-of-the-art Promotions API allows you to apply Promotions to your listings in bulk directly through the Rentals United interface. You can also edit your existing Promotions in bulk and see them all in one place.
Applying Promotions in batches helps to save lots of time and be more efficient, especially for property managers with 100+ listings.
3. Choose from advanced pricing options
Our Booking.com connection allows you to work with a different pricing model for each property. We don’t force you to work with the same pricing model for all your listings, and you can easily switch between pricing models whenever you want. For example, you can set a nightly rate for one of your listings, LOS pricing for another, and so on.
Our reliable connection ensures that you get the most out of your revenue management strategy. For example, if you use a dynamic pricing tool, our channel manager is so quick at communicating frequent price adjustments to channels that you’re guaranteed to be selling your nights at the optimal margin at all times.

How long does it take for my listing to go live on Booking.com?
If you’re getting listed on Booking.com for the first time and you’ve prepared all the required content, your listings will go live within 5 business days. If you have existing Booking.com listings, mapping them takes about 25 minutes with the help of an Onboarding Specialist and about 24 hours if you do it by yourself.
Can I manage multi-unit properties on Booking.com via Rentals United?
Yes, we support multi-unit properties. However, there are some things to keep in mind.
For new Booking.com users, each listing you create in Rentals United will be pushed as an individual property. If you have multiple rentals at the same address (for example, apartment complexes or resorts) and you want to manage them as multi-units, you need to log in to the Booking.com extranet and create a multi-unit listing there. Then, we’ll map your multi-unit listing and sync your pricing and availability.
On the other hand, if you already have a Booking.com account and manage your properties as multi-units, we can’t push or re-push your content. We can only provide limited sync (pricing and availability). If you want to make changes to your listing content, you’ll need to log in to the Booking.com extranet.
