Listing your house
This site is incredibly difficult to use if you only have one property to rent, nearly every time i have had to make a reservation i have had to call for help, the site is designed for hotels and you need to check every piece of information they put on about your site and then write down what is wrong and phone them to change it as you cant. It is not like Home and Away or Airbnb but having said that I do get better bookings here, if you want to restrict sat to sat in the summer etc best you contact them and they will set it all up, They helped me a lot at first now I am more confident on the site. At first it was a nightmare! Now it's a lot easier.
The trick I find is dont sync your calendars like i did and screwed it all up, I keep a paper diary and write it all in that for safety and I use 3 booking agencies. At the beginning of the diary is the site name, House number login password and uk telephone number for each site, Trying to find a telephone number while stressed is very difficult, they dont want you to call and the worst is Airbnb

Everything is done in the Extranet, I find using Pulse works like a dream
When doing business in the beginning everything is a nightmare. As you get along and after a couple of reservations things get to role on. I agree booking.com is more designed for hotels but is a leader platform and an expert in accommodation industry. I am very pleased being a a partner.
I don’t seem to have a problem with the site itself and agree that the Pulse app is easy to use, my concern is not getting the inquiries I was hoping for and have yet to make any reservations through booking.
Any suggestions on what I might doing wrong, or what I can do to help my listing along?
I think we are all in the same boat, people in the uk are holding off until after brexit to see what happens at the end of march, they are already talking about you having to by an annual visa at 65 gbp per person! What more do the people in the uk need to make them change their minds! I think we have to forget uk visitors and look for more european visitors, most of mine for the last 2 years are dutch or french no uk.
I thinks everyone is just wetting themselves in the UK and quite rightly so they could be the catalyst for screwing up the EU which was a good thing, its kept us at peace and being able to travel and using the same finance and visit countries we would never thought of before!.
