As a short-term vacation rental manager, you try to get your listings in front of as many eyeballs as possible. An effective way to do this is to list on the major online travel agency (OTA) websites like Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com, as well as your own website.
One of the biggest challenges to having a listing on several websites, however, is that there’s a chance that it might get double-booked before you’re able to take it down from the other sites.
Beyond has been in the vacation rental industry for over eight years, and we understand the importance of effective distribution management. We’ve evolved from a single-product into a multi-product revenue management platform solution, and part of that is the ability to do dynamic channel markups.
We have in-house experts who are veterans of the hotel and hospitality industry, and we pioneered dynamic pricing for short-term rentals. We are best positioned to make an impact when it comes to distribution strategy and optimization, and we were confident that we could come up with a dynamic channel distribution solution that would work for our customers.
Relay is Beyond’s tool that automatically syncs short-term rental listings across the major OTAs, including Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com, and 30+ property management systems like Escapia, LiveRez, and SuperControl, to name a few. Relay helps property managers avoid double bookings on their listing and saves them time without costing them exorbitant channel fees.
