The most comfortable Channel Manager

Hello there everybody.

Colleagues, please share your experience and recommendations of CHANNEL MANAGER. We have 5 apartments and most of our reservations come from booking.com. Nevertheless, we use AirBnB, Home&Away, Expedia and Agoda.

Recently we have been using Hostaway, but the system is incomplete. The real time sync is bugs. Thank you.

We are using hostaway so can’t help you so much.
I also saw beds24 that can be a good solution but can’t work with us (dynamic price issue with different prices depending number of guests) but can be good

We have tried it too, but usually we are not sold out and we have to drop down the price as a last minute booking within same day check in. So once I decrease the price it did not deacrease on booking as well, then had to disconnect from them. Their menu and UI is also comfortable, but after while of using it started lagging.

Hi Aziz,

Actually, you do not necessarily need a Channel manager to cope with your properties. AirGSM Property Management Software can be an ideal solution for you. As a channel manager, it has multi-platform synchronization. So you can sync all calendar data from VRBO, HomeAway, Booking.com, TripAdvisor, or any short-term rental booking platform. What is more important in AirGMS you can find much more useful features than none of the channels managers have. For instance, you can manage all your Airbnb chats in one place. The platform has deep integration with Airbnb, so you can easily do almost all actions you would normally do on Airbnb. And the most important you can manage your staff and cleaning services via AirGMS. You don’t have to make a choice right away. Give it a try with 14-days free trial and you’ll figure if that’s what you are looking for.

Hope it helps.

Best,

AirGMS

I can advice you Effective Tours. They give a 6 month free trial. And after it charging just 1$ per room for All Inclusive Package. So 5 apartments with all major OTA + Airbnb will be 5$ per month.

Do you work for them?

Depends on what you are looking for.

I use https://www.easybooking.at/.
This is more like classic hotelsoftware with a channelmanager.

We chose this one because most of our bookings are direct, and we handle most of our payments ourselves.

Since AirBnB, Homeaway and others work with iCal, there is no such thing as real time synchronization of calendars with them.

Booking.com, IHA and others have direct interface, where calendars can be pushed upon change, but AirBnB will always have a delay (and so a risk of double bookings).

Helsi, yes I do. Would be happy to answer your questions.

If you are connecting booking dot com and Airbnb, then Booking Automation is your best bet. They also automate your payment collection and payment processing for booking dot com
