High-Quality Channel Manager for Booking.com+Flipkey+Homeaway?

Hi there,

I would be very grateful for your very best recommendations for a channel manager to manage 8 to 15 self-catering (vacation rental) properties in the UK.

The channel manager would need to have:

- Full compatibility with Booking.com, Flipkey, and preferably HomeAway (OwnersDirect)

- 2-way syncing of availability and rates between all these channels and the channel manager itself

- Fast, reliable syncing to prevent double-bookings

- A clean, modern user interface, with detailed options for rates / availability

- Ideally, the ability to integrate a 'widget' into our own website to view availability / take bookings

- Ideally, a free trial so we can try it out before committing

I am currently looking into Orbirental, Lodgify, HotelRunner, Sirvoy, RentalsUnited and others.

Thank you very much!



Hi John, did you find anything good yet ?

I started to use siteminder but not %100 sure about it. I have 7 self catering units and trying to connect all channels. Pls let me know how you connect booking.com to homeaway.

Thanks in advance.



We own several vacation rentals in the US and use Checkfront for a booking engine, and MyAllocator for our channel manager. They sync together and work REALLY well. We've tried dozens of other booking/channel managers and always come back to these two. They are a fraction of the price of some of the big names out there - but work twice as well. We tried Orbirental & Lodgify, but they didn't even come close.

If you want to see them in action, or website is: www.dawsonretreats.com


Hey Anastasia. I also use MyAllocator.
Can you share how much Checkfront booking engine cost? Is it a fixed monthly rate or you pay percentage for each booking made?
