If you are in the business of holiday property rentals, then good coordination and organisation are vital. To achieve this, it’s important to make use of the best tools you can. Perhaps one of the most crucial tools for managing your property is a booking calendar. Kalkan Owners Direct provides an easy-to-use online availability calendar which you can access any time via pc, laptop, or smart phone.
As a host you have lots of things to consider when renting out your property. There are maintenance concerns, regular advertising and social media updates. You have to deal with reservation requests, and of course provide service and assistance to guests during their stay. It takes a lot of effort so minimising your tasks is going to help. Let’s see how using a centralised calendar can reduce your workload:
Probably the key advantage to having a centralised availability calendar is the fact that it saves a great deal of time and effort. From our experience we know many owners who advertise on various platforms and with multiple agents. This inevitably means there are lots of people and systems to update when there are changes to your property’s availability calendar. This can be both time consuming and stressful. Especially if you are receiving numerous requests for similar dates. Having one calendar to update instead of multiple calendars and agents is really going to reduce your workload.
Having a main calendar that can be shared with your maintenance team, potential renters and agents alike will help protect you from mistakes such as double bookings or missed sales opportunities.
When it comes to OTA’s such as Airbnb, TripAdvisor or Booking.com a centralised calendar is great. It will save you the effort of having to manually sign into many accounts and update your listing calendar. You can synchronise the calendars from Airbnb, TripAdvisor, Booking.com or any other channel that supports iCal with your centralised calendar. So if you receive a booking the dates are automatically updated for you.
By utilising a centralised calendar your potential guests will be supplied by up-to-date information about availability. There is nothing more frustrating for both parties, (guests and hosts) when an enquiry is made that cannot be fulfilled because the dates are not available. You can use your Kalkan Owners Direct property page link to share on social media and potential guests will instantly see which dates are available to book. This again saves wasted time and energy on requests that will not result in a booking. It also helps to keep your property score high on online sites such as Airbnb and VRBO as you avoid declining requests.
Once you have subscribed to Kalkan Owners Direct and listed your property you will be able to make use of our availability calendar. Maintaining all your booking and availability information is simple. The calendar is easily accessed in the Owners dashboard. It can be instantly updated by selecting dates which have been booked or similarly dates which are available by clicking on the dates in question.
You can then share your availability calendar with any rental agencies you advertise with. You can link the calendar to any online agents you use so when you update your Kalkan Owners Direct calendar your availability will be automatically updated across the board – easy!
