Instant Booking with HomeAway & Avantio
We are pleased to announce a development available through Avantio and HomeAway, which will benefit both agencies and their guests through a new automation of the booking process, called Instant Booking.
Instant Booking automatically confirms traveler booking requests for you with no need for any manual intervention by your agency. It allows guests to book your vacation rental property immediately and receive an instant confirmation.
Increase bookings with HomeAway Instant Booking
This feature provides a number of benefits for you:
- Save time: Your agency doesn’t need to take any manual action to confirm the online reservation.
- Better guest experience: Your guests receive a fast service which enhances their experience.
- Higher conversion rate: Instant booking provides a one-click service for potential guests, increasing the opportunities for conversion.
- Increased visibility of your properties: Providing Instant Booking can increase positioning in the HomeAway site. In addition, all properties on HomeAway with Instant Booking will show a lightening bolt icon to attract attention, which means it can be searched by this feature and highlighted to potential guests as Instant Booking.
- Increased bookings: Properties which have online booking receive a higher number of bookings than those without, especially if Instant Booking is enabled.
- Easy communication of property rules and information: If you have set your property rules, these will be seen and accepted by the guest when they make the reservation.
For more information, please check the Avantio Support pages for this feature, and if you have any further questions about the new developments in Avantio, please do not hesitate to contact us. Avantio is dedicated to providing industry leading solutions which aim to reduce the time needed to manage large numbers of vacation rental properties. If you would like to work with Avantio in the future, please get in touch.
