    Great product with very efficient team for onboarding and support

    Reviewed on 18/04/2018

    Pros

    Very easy to use, nice design, reliable, excellent support team
    The support team is the key employee for us ! He is details and customers oriented and has always find solutions for us. Definitely an amazing employee !
    Key Account Manager is also very professional and helpful.

    Cons

    The process to multi connect our properties to OTAs could be easier sometimes as we get lost in the different ways... Would love to have one click button to multi connect ;-) and to bypass the administrative registrations.
    A more dynamic tool to set up prices could also be a great edge.

    Our challenge was to improve our product exposure - Rentals United allowed us to do this without maintaining connections with multiple channels ourselves.

    Pros

    I liked that Rentals United takes care of all the management of Channel Integration APIs on my behalf so all I need to do is sync properties to RU, and it will handle all the channels on my behalf.

    Cons

    Dynamic pricing wasn't available as part of the core product and we had to use an additional product to manage this.

    Response from Rentals United

    That really is the beauty of using our platform, increase the number of bookings that you receive and do less work to achieve them, giving you more time to focus on growing your business and focussing on other important things.

    To a successful 2020!

    Cons

    Complete waste of money and completed waste of time.The OTAs I connected with through Rentals United dont seem to screen guests reservations.in 6 months of use I only had 12 reservations and 11 cancellations!I had my calendar dates blocked by guests that never paid and eventually were cancelled by my team or by them selves.I lost money due to blocked dates by bogus guests

    Response from Rentals United

    Hi Zohar,

    We are sorry to hear you have had a negative experience with our platform. Our Customer Success team has been in contact with you for the past weeks, offering meetings in order to resolve pending issues and to optimise your account. We are happy that the pending issues now have been resolved.

    You are using Rentals United in combination with your PMS which has direct connections to the big OTAs. Rentals United offers additional connections to other sales channels, from which you have received several reservations. 

    With regards to these reservations, some guests have cancelled their reservation and received a refund according to your cancellation policy. Guests, unfortunately, sometimes need to cancel their accommodation. We recommend reviewing if the cancellation policies you currently work with, are still a good fit for your business. 



    While it is correct that we usually see a 25% increase in reservations, it is important to keep in mind this includes reservations from the biggest OTAs. These are connections that you are not using with your PMS, not with Rentals United and therefore you probably have not seen this mentioned increase. We do apologise for the confusion in this matter. 
If you have additional questions about this, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

    Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to express your concerns.

    Pros

    From the first day we had an excellent assistance from the girl who took care of us to implement the system, which channels we could connect, which is relatively easy to establish the connection, although there is another part that does not depend on Rentals United, You have to contract it directly with the channels where you want to distribute according to the conditions of each channel. We have always had excellent assistance from them and is easy to schedule an appoint with our account manager. We are still in the process of connecting with several channels but so far we have not had any problems.

    Cons

    It would be great to have a trial period before making the payment. It would also be great to be able to configure more aspects of the properties like the price for instance without having to do it property by property
