As first Dutch supplier of rental software – for medium sized accommodation property owners and vacation parks in particular – Reflex Booking has realized a direct connection with Booking.com and Villas.com. This means that the actual situation of rentals is always visible, which prevents mistakes and double bookings.
Booking.com is one of the fastest growing rental websites in the travel industry. Currently more than twenty Reflex-users are directly linked to the portals of Booking.com and Fijnopvakantie.nl. ‘We see that an increasing number of property owners choose for a collaboration with Booking.com,’ says Bob van der Plas of Reflex. ‘Logical, because that results in additional bookings at a realistic commission. With additional discounts and elaborate email exchanges beforehand.
Furthermore, the property owner can decide for him/herself for which period he/she wants to offer the accommodation via this channel. Certainly in the case of short rental periods, this works very well.’
No more double bookings
‘In the past, we sometimes accidently made double bookings, because we had not updated the availability on Booking.com on time. That is, of course, very annoying, ’ says Cindy Herman, Park manager Domaine Long Pré in Stavelot (Belgium). ‘In that particular case we arranged for similar accommodation for the guests, as Booking.com requires this from the property owner. Also, because of this we did not dare to offer too many accommodations via this channel. Now that we use the direct link this can no longer happen.’
