A game changer for vacation rentals

Pros

Relatively simple to use. I was able to set up my site and reservation system in less than a week. Site works extremely well on mobile devices (which is huge). I am starting to get a lot of direct online bookings which is amazing. The customer service is very good - I have asked several detailed how-to questions. In one case, I wanted to do something that is not part of the Lodgify product. The service rep researched other ways to accomplish the task and integrate into my site. She sent me detailed instructions and even links to assist me. Not many companies will take the time to do that! Finally, the workflow aspect of the reservation system is a huge time saver. It is so nice to be able to set up automatic payment reminders, send rental agreements and canned emails automatically! Gives me time to worry about running my business and expanding the website instead of doing all the manual processes associated with bookings.

Cons

Some of the widgets are a little restrictive. I have managed to work around most of them. My only other complaint is that if you respond to an inquiry with a quote, the system automatically blocks the dates with a tentative booking. I sync my HomeAway, VRBO etc calendars with my Lodgify calendar, so the tentative block causes those calendars to show unavailable. In this business, the conversion rate on inquiries is not high enough to block dates simply because someone sent an inquiry.

Hi Deanna, thank you for reviewing your Lodgify experience. We're happy to hear how quickly and easily you were able to get your website up and running. It's a very positive sign you are already achieving direct bookings on your website, we hope this continues to make up an even larger portion of your reservations this year! We're glad our agents were able to go above and beyond to help you find the solution to your query. We look forward to seeing you expand your website throughout 2018! Regarding the tentative booking on inquiries, we have recently updated our system and now, inside your policy settings, you can decide the quote expiry time. The default is one week, but you can change this to suit your properties. If the guest does not accept the quote within this time frame, your calendar will automatically be re-opened. For further details on this matter, please get in touch with your support agent. Have a great booking-filled year! The Lodgify Team

Great for taking direct bookings and great integration with multiple channels and pricing software.

Have received quite a few direct bookings for which I charge more but still save the guests money since the AirBnB guest fee is very high.

Pros

• Website was really easy to set up to take direct bookings and allows customization. I set it up on my own and had it ready to go in just a couple of days. • Great blogs with tips on set up and other ways to improve your business. • Integration with Pricelabs, AirBnB, VRBO, and booking.com are great - Lodgify takes prices from pricelabs and moves those to VRBO since VRBO and pricelabs do not have integration • Payment processing is expensive but works well • New integrations and features happen quite often • Customer support is very responsive I first tried Tokeet, then Beds24 and then switched to Lodgify which has been much better.

Cons

• Software doesn't allow monthly automatic charging for guests who book for a few months at a time which is something AirBnB does so makes it hard to convert these types of guests to direct bookings. Contractors get paid monthly from their company so want to be able to pay monthly also so I need to manage these payments manually. • There is an ability to create canned messages but no way to schedule these to send automatically. There should be a way to send messages automatically when a booking is made, before and after check-in for example. I use SmartBnB for this now which works great for AirBnB and VRBO but doesn't help for direct bookings.

Reasons for Choosing Lodgify

The key item I wanted was the ability to push pricing from pricelabs to VRBO which I knew Lodgify was working on when I bought it. This along with the ability to simply create a website was great.

Super Software, reaktiver Support

Verwaltung meiner Ferienvermietung, wirklich alles optimal, ich bin voll zufrieden mit meiner Wahl

Pros

Bestens zugeschnitten auf die Bedürfnisse eines Ferienvermieters, integrierte Website mit schönen Templates, permanente Aktualisierung und Weiterentwicklung der Software und Funktionalitäten, professioneller und reaktiver Support, optisch ansprechendes Frontend, Channel Manager zu einigen Portalen

Cons

Wenn man seine Änderungen online stellt, zeigt die Online-Darstellung nicht den Ort, wo man etwas verändert hat, sondern man muss sich immer wieder dorthin bewegen, das kostet viel Zeit, vor allem, wenn man optisch etwas ausprobiert, das ist wirklich sehr mühsam Man kann keine Videos an der Stelle von Bildern einstellen (zB auf der Eingangsseite, statt ganz oben dem statischen Bild, ein Video, das wäre toll und gäbe der Website mehr Attraktiviät)

Terrible company

Initially (years ago) was good customer service/account managers. Now its possibly the worst company ive had to deal with. Completely arrogant, not interested and focused on profits not the product/experience. Ask for help and expect to be told that they will be increasing the price.. contact senior management and expect your emails to be read and ignored. Dont get sucked in... plenty of better alternatives! We switched our properties to Tokeet and it is allot cheaper, has more features and amazing customer support. I doubt Lodgify will survive long with their attitude towards their clients.

Pros

Reservation system is okay but does not help if they provide a terrible website that does not convert

Cons

Customer service is horrible! Greedy company only care about increasing their profits (years ago this was not the case) they seem to think and act like they are a large corporation now and dont need to help you.

Reasons for Choosing Lodgify

It was a fair price and had good support (4 years ago)

Lodgify au quotidien

La mise en place et l'utilisation de Lodgify sont plutôt simples pour des personnes maîtrisant correctement l'outil informatique. C'est un peu plus compliqué pour des non initiés mais c'est tout à fait réalisable, il suffit de prendre son temps et le support est vraiment réactif et sympathique. Lodgfy est un très bon produit très complet pour gérer une activité de location.

Pros

L'outil est très complet : du site web à la gestion des réservations en passant par les paiements, les notifications clients, le channel manager, il permet de gérer mon activité de A à Z. Nous avons un établissement avec 3 chambres et l'outil est vraiment efficace pour la gestion quotidienne de notre entreprise. Il est très performant et dispose d'un très bon rapport qualité/prix.

Cons

Le point à améliorer concerne les rapports : on peut extraire des rapports sous excel, mais il serait vraiment utile de pouvoir afficher, filtrer et trier les données directement dans Lodgify. On a besoin de pouvoir analyser nos ventes, savoir combien de clients ont réservés à travers booking, combien sont restés plus d'une nuit, quel est le prix moyen des nuitées vendues, ... C'est pour moi le gros manque qui sera certainement comblé dans un futur proche.
