Whether you are a manager or a property owner of a hotel, bed and breakfast, a single apartment or a hotel chain, preventing unintentional overbookings is essential in your revenue growth strategy. However, this can be a great challenge and unwanted overbookings are something quite common to happen if not managed properly. Especially when managing your short-term rental across multiple channels.
With the NextPax Channel Manager you can prevent this from happening in the future.
Reasons for Double Bookings
Double bookings can be caused by several reasons, for instance if your calendars are not synchronized with each other, a guest can book a rental on one channel (for example an OTA) on the same date as someone else through another channel. Consequently, this will probably cause greater administrative costs and can even decrease your listing in ranking on these channels.
Therefore, an obvious solution for this is to synchronize your calendars across all the distribution channels you are listing your vacation rental, hotel or other type of accommodation on.
Automating synchronization has shown to be much more effective than manually updating your calendars and content. The best way to automate this is via a channel manager that uses an API that is connected to all distribution channels you are listing your accommodation(s) on. By doing this, you are able to update rates, availability and content in real time on all channels. The NextPax Full-Service Channel Management solutions are cloud-based and use state-of-the-art technology to provide you with a seamless API connectivity. Whether you need to connect a large amount of rentals or a single unit, with NextPax you can choose the best option to fits your needs.
