Extended Channel Management Explained


As a vacation rental property owner, it's crucial to maximize your online visibility and reach to as many potential guests as possible. While Airbnb,, and VRBO are well-known and widely used online travel agencies (OTAs), listing your property on these platforms alone may not be enough to fully tap into the vacation rental market. That's why listing on other OTAs, beyond the big players, can provide a wealth of benefits for your property and business.

RentalWise makes it easy for property owners to list properties on a wide range of OTAs, beyond Airbnb,, and VRBO. By listing on these other OTAs, you can reach a larger pool of potential guests and increase your chances of securing bookings. Here are just a few of the benefits of listing on other OTAs via the RentalWise platform.

Increased exposure: By listing your property on multiple OTAs, you increase your chances of being discovered by potential guests who may not have found your property on just one platform. This increased exposure can lead to more bookings and a higher occupancy rate for your property. The additional channels also add validity to your traditional channel listings.

Diversified income streams: By listing on multiple OTAs, you diversify your income streams and reduce your dependence on any one platform and/or cancellation policy. This can provide more stable sources of income and protect you in the event of changes or disruptions from one OTA.

Reaching new markets: Different OTAs may have a stronger presence in different regions, cities, or countries. By listing on multiple OTAs, you can tap into these markets and reach new potential guests who may not have found your property on other platforms.

Access to different guest demographics: Each OTA may have a different target market and demographic of guests. Listing on multiple OTAs allows you to reach a wider range of guests and cater to a wider range of preferences and needs.

Ease of management: With RentalWise , managing your listings on multiple OTAs is simple and efficient. Our proprietary channel manager automatically updates pricing, availability, and reservations across all of the major OTAs (Airbnb, Booking, VRBO, Google Vacation Rentals), saving you time and effort.

Extended Solution: Listing your vacation rental properties on other OTAs, beyond Airbnb,, and VRBO, can provide a wealth of benefits for your property and business. With the RentalWise platform and our partner Rentals United (with up to 85 channels!), it's easy to tap into these benefits and reach a wider pool of potential guests. So, don't limit yourself to just a few platforms, expand your reach and take your business to the next level with RentalWise.
