Wat is online reserveren en hoe werkt het?

When you activate the online booking feature, we enable a form in your listing, which allows travellers, in addition to consulting the available dates and obtaining the budget calculation, to complete the payment of the booking quickly and securely.

Online booking will be activated whenever you choose the Premium promotion, or it will be optional if you choose the Platinum promotion. View Rentalia’s publishing plans.

This feature is possible thanks to the integration with AvaiBook, idealista’s holiday rental management software.

Why AvaiBook?

Avaibook’s system allows you to receive payment for bookings and gives you access to management tools to automate your processes in a convenient and efficient way, and all of this for free, thanks to the agreement between Rentalia and AvaiBook.

When you activate the online booking feature, Rentalia will automatically generate an AvaiBook subscription for you, from which the booking payments will be managed. If you already have an AvaiBook subscription, you will be able to continue working with it and link your Rentalia listing in just a few clicks.

You will have an AvaiBook account, independent from the Rentalia dashboard, and from there you will be able to manage everything related to your online bookings (payment plan configuration, settlements, invoices), and also enjoy additional tools that will allow you to streamline your management. AvaiBook allows you to synchronise your accommodation calendar with other portals, we recommend you do so to ensure that it is always up to date.

Choose the type of booking that suits you best:

  • Instant booking. Here you opt for the convenience of not having to wait to respond to booking requests. This is a more convenient option and preferred by travellers but should only be used if the calendar and prices are always up to date. Find out more here.
  • Booking on request: every time a traveller sends you a booking request, you will receive a notification via email and SMS and all you have to do is accept it.

The dates will be temporarily blocked in your calendar, and you will have 24 hours to accept or reject the request, otherwise it will automatically expire.

In both cases, when a booking is confirmed, we charge the traveller the advance payment you have set, and we will mark the dates as booked in your calendar automatically.

The payment plan for the remainder of the booking can be configured in several ways. You can find out more here.
