A Guide to Connecting to Airbnb using Rentals United

If you want to connect to Airbnb via Rentals United, you will need to create a brand new Airbnb account that will later be connected to your Rentals United (RU) account. This needs to be done even if you have an existing Airbnb account, but don’t worry, a Market Manager at Airbnb will be able to transfer your property reviews from your original Airbnb account to your new one to keep things as seamless as possible.

A Guide to Integrating your Anytime Booking Account with Rentals United

You can use our connection with the global distribution network Rentals United (RU) to sell more holidays if you have cottages, static caravans, glamping pods, shepherd huts, lodges – any accommodation structure really apart from camping and touring pitches.

NB. You will need to have daily pricing in order for this connection to work.

Exporting and Importing Data

You may wish to export customer data to print labels, do mail-merges, create internal lists and so on. This is possible by way of CSV.

CSV or ‘comma-separated values’ is supported by a huge number of tools from spreadsheets like Excel, OpenOffice and Google Docs to complex databases to almost all programming languages. It is the most common import and export format for spreadsheets and databases and is readable by both machines and humans!

No Payment = No Booking

If no payment is received, the system will automatically cancel the booking on your behalf. 

As from November 30th 2017, this feature will no longer be available. To cancel a provisional booking within a certain time frame as designated by you, please take a look at this article

Version 3.1.2 onwards will allow you to choose whether you would like to receive a booking if the payment failed.

Task Reminders

We know that sometimes it can be tricky to remember everything at once when you’re running a business! We have now added a new module to the system, which allows you to set task reminders for yourself and other members of your team.

Owner statement reports and property deductions

Being able to view your owner statements allows you to see the income generated by the unit, and what commission you have earned through taking bookings for this unit over time. You can also add and view any property deductions for the unit – these are anything you’ve had to deduct from the unit, that are also deducted from the monies owed to the owner of the unit.
