I'm renting out 5 bedroom villa, selling on BDC, Agoda, Expedia, Airbnb, Flipkey and have some direct relations with rental agencies who have their own logins to check my rates, discounts and availability in real time with instant booking facility, which helps me to avoid tons of calls from the monthly. Effective Tours channel manager charges me 5$ per month for it, and I'm completely satisfied with it.
They also provides me a payment gateway to collect advance payments from the guests, which helps me to avoid no-shows and last minute cancellations.
Now they are offering a 6 month free trial, so it really worth to try.
