I would like my listing to be featured higher in the search results. How does this happen?
Please contact us and we will advise you further.
I've uploaded my property, but it doesn't appear in the search results. Why?
In order to maintain a high quality of listings on BookingLettings, we review each offer before they are approved and made available for search. Uploading good quality photos and providing complete information about your property help speed up the review process. If your listing still doesn't appear in the search results within one week, please contact our customer support team for further advice.
What if I can't find my location on the map?
If your street address is not recognized on its own, try entering the zip code and/or city after it. If this still does not work, please contact our customer support team and we will fix it for you.
How do I get reviews?
Once a guest has stayed at your property, we send them an email encouraging them to leave a review at their own discretion. Only guests who have stayed in your property through BookingLettings can add reviews.
How will the location of my property be displayed?
We display a basic indication of where your accommodation is located, limited to the street name and a map of the surrounding area. We withhold your exact street address in order to protect your privacy. Guests will only receive it once you have confirmed their booking.
What kind of photos of my property should I upload?
Your photos should clearly show the rooms in your accommodation that your guests would have access to, such as the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, external, etc. The better your photos are, the more interested potential guests will be in booking your property. That’s why we recommend you to upload at least 800x600 pixels photos of your property.
Do I need to use the calendar?
Yes. It is extremely important that the availability of your accommodation is accurate, otherwise you will have to refuse bookings made for unavailable dates, which could affect your listing's position in the search results. Also, when you change dates on your calendar BookingLettings automatically sync your calendar with other portals you had chosen.
What should I keep in mind when creating my listing?
You should present your accommodation in an interesting and informative manner. You will need to upload photos, create a suitable title and enter a description of your property. You should also make sure you accurately include details such as price, location, amenities, property type, minimum stay, maximum number of guests etc. Contact details (email, phone, street address etc.) are not permitted in the title, description or house rules.
My guest requested to receive an invoice for their total booking amount. How do I do this?
When the guest request an invoice we arrange their invoices 48 hours after check in and send. So you don’t worry about their invoice request.
