Online Booking integration works with many popular software packages.
Call your HomeAway Account Manager, 1-877-238-2216, or your software company to confirm if your software currently allows Online Booking integration.
If your software company is not currently integrated with HomeAway, they can contact PM.Partner@homeaway.com to learn more about the free HomeAway integration solutions.
Online Booking is free to Property Managers with subscription listings, however your software must be integrated and your listings must be activated in order to provide Online Booking capability.
HomeAway does not charge any additional merchant fees when you add "Book it Now" to your subscription listings. You still pay the fees you would normally pay for merchant services to your processor.
Reservations will look and work exactly the same as your own online bookings. We only require you to answer the requests within 24 hours to provide the best traveler experience possible.
