What's New- Property address added to email templates
- Other fixes
App DescriptionDo you own or manage vacation rental properties? Vacation Props gives you an edge by allowing you to respond quickly and accurately to inquiries with less effort, and puts all your rental property information at your fingertips.
Responding to a rental inquiry within 3 hours increases the likelihood of booking by over 50%! Using our innovative Quick Rate Quote feature, Vacation Props gives you the ability to respond with a personalized quote quickly, from wherever you are.
Here’s how Quick Rate Quote works:
• Start by copying an inquiry email from your mail app. Alternatively, upgrade to Vacation Props Pro and the app can find inquiries directly from your IMAP mail account. The inquiry can be from VRBO, HomeAway, VacationRentals, or FlipKey.
• Vacation Props automatically analyzes the inquiry, checks availability, and calculates the quote based on configured seasonal rates.
• Step through a simple wizard interface that allows you to review and customize the quote, including answering any questions from the inquiry.
• A fully customizable email template response is automatically created with details of the quote.
• Send the email response to the potential guest and the quote is automatically saved for future reference.
Other features include:
• Quickly create a rate quote from scratch (no inquiry email needed). Great for calculating a quote if a potential guest calls you.
• Customizable your email templates, which are automatically filled in with details from the quote. The appropriate email template is used when the property is available, already booked, or if the length of stay is shorter than the minimum number of nights allowed.
• Quickly access your reservations from either a calendar or list view.
• Easily configure information about all your properties, including base and seasonal rates, fees, tax rate, and more.
• Use the Dashboard to view your summary statistics and easily drill down into reservations and inquiries for all your properties.
• Import availability information from iCal URLs (e.g. HomeAwayConnect)
The powerful rate quote engine in Vacation Props provides flexibility in creating quotes that meet your specific needs. For each property you can configure a variety of information that is used to generate the quote:
• Seasonal Rates allow you to configure different rates for different times of the year. The property’s Base Rate is used for all other times of the year.
• Nightly, Weekly, and Monthly rates are supported for each rate period.
• Special Nightly Rates allow you to have different rates for certain days of the week.
• A configurable tax rate as well as flat rate or percentage-based fees are supported. For example, the property may have 8.5% sales tax, a flat $100 cleaning fee, and a 5% booking fee.
Deciding if Vacation Props is right for you:
• You have complete control over the body of the email, but only plain text email responses without attachments are supported.
• Except for iCal integration, there is no automatic syncing with services like VRBO or HomeAway.
• Download the user guide from our web site to learn more about Vacation Props.
You can also upgrade to Vacation Props Pro with an in-app purchase and get the following additional features:
• Inbox Quick Rate Quote. Configure your IMAP email account and Vacation Props will automatically detect new inquiries from VRBO, HomeAway, VacationRentals.com, and FlipKey. This feature only works with IMAP email (POP email is not supported).
• Flag Inquiries and Reservations for followup.
• Followup Emails. Use our powerful email templates to send followup emails to guests, cleaners, and others.
• Resend quotes or send a saved draft quote.
• Choose any configured rate when creating a new quote.
• Customized email subject lines.
• Integration with Vacation RentPro, a leading Vacation Rental Management application for Windows.
