Frequently asked questions

How does vacation rental software work?

Vacation rental software lets you connect your listings to online booking sites to receive reservations. It saves you the time and hassle of having to log in and out of each booking site separately to manage your listings.

What kind of information can vacation rental software sync?

It depends on your software provider. Most vacation rental software can connect your prices, availability, and reservations. With Powerhost, you’ll get a lot more. Add all your content, from personalised pricing and extra fees to photos and policies.

What are the advantages of using vacation rental software?

You can avoid double bookings and pricing mistakes, automate payment processing and guest messaging, optimise your bookings, and spot opportunities. Above all, you’ll save yourself the time and trouble of managing your listings across multiple channels manually.

Who owns the listings?

You always retain ownership of your contracts, reviews, and finances. Powerhost is just a facilitator, and although we make account creation with different channels easier, we are not a marketing agency. We do not own any of your contracts with customers and sales channels. This is important because it means that if you were to stop working with us, you wouldn’t have to worry about losing your rankings and reviews.

How does the Powerhost free trial work?

We offer a free 14-day trial of Powerhost and don’t request a credit card to sign up. By starting the trial period, you are not obligated to pay for the service – so you can freely try the platform’s capabilities without worrying about the cost being charged.
