Hostaway Releases Direct Booking Websites

February 4, 2018

We appreciate your support and thank our current customers for the feedback. Hostaway is now taking a major step forward by providing you with the most profitable channel: your own website like this one.

How does it work? Once you're set up on Hostaway, you can launch your own booking website in just a few clicks. Choose a main picture, a title, your domain name and all your active listings will be launched on yourdomain.holidayfuture.com. Guests can see your properties there, make inquiries and book directly.

What rates will be used? Your Hostaway rates will be used for the website. The same goes for minimum stay, which you can adjust in the calendar.

Guest Payments

For now, you can follow up on the inquiries with your guests, and ask them to pay by bank transfer, paypal or upon arrival. You can also let them accept your terms, such as deposits or non-refundable rates using the Hostaway messages. Later this year, we will integrate Stripe and Paypal directly on the guest websites for direct payments.

Content Updates

You are able to add new properties or edit the content for existing properties within the Hostaway dashboard. All changes will be automatically published on your website.

Own Domain

You can already use your own domain with the Hostaway Websites. There are several ways of doing it.

Buy a domain and redirect it to yourdomain.holidayfuture.com Use your existing website, add a Book Now button and link it to yourdomain.holidayfuture.com Wait for our upcoming calendar widgets and wordpress integrations How to get guests to book through your website There are many advantages with taking direct bookings, and the easiest way to start is to mention your new website to all guests, leave business cards and promise them discounts if they book directly. You can mention your website to friends and family, advertise it on social media, and hand out business cards or flyers to people who are looking for your properties.
