Additional Details on Features

Rate Management
With Hosthub’s Rate Management, you can use & manage multiple rate plans for each channel at no extra cost. Set the rates of your choice in Hosthub, and the system will send them to your connected channels.

Rate Exceptions – The ability to create, track, and edit rate exceptions and push them to all your channels

Dynamic Rates:  The ability to automatically adjust nightly rates to offset channel fees. For example, on a $100 per night booking, the rate would vary as follows:  $103 to Airbnb, $115 to Booking.com, and $118 to Expedia, etc., based on each channel’s fees.

OR

Rate Parity: Mostly used by hotels, this option allows you to show the exact same amount per night on all channels, but your payout will vary depending on the fees each channel charges you for these bookings.

Ongoing Customer Support

Pros

  • With access to over 200 OTAs (booking channels) Hosthub is a leading channel managers.
  • The Revenue Builder is a huge time saver.  People who would rather outsource connecting their listing to other OTAs will find tremendous value here.  It probably only takes one booking from a new platform to recoup the $75 fee.
  • The websites they build are yours forever and won't be lost if you switch companies.

Cons

  • PMS offers basic functionality, but most hosts will need to utilize integrations to add needed features.
  • It would be great if the guest messaging feature included SMS.
