We’re very happy with Hostfully’s new direct bookings site. It is professionally-designed and meets our guests’ high expectations. Its deep integration with the property management software allows us to make changes to listings that appear instantly on the direct booking site. In a time when bookings are more important than ever, having a way for guests to book directly is critical – Keith Freedman, Owner of HostWell
❓ Want to see a few Direct Bookings Sites in action? We’re so glad you asked! Here are a few Hostfully managers already using the newly designed Direct Bookings Site:


The truth is, the best property managers garner about 65% of their business from direct bookings. But we all know that keeping a bookings site up to date is time-consuming ⌚ and a lot to add to your busy plate.



To complement 🙏 and celebrate 🍾 the launch of this feature, we also created a few tools to help you optimize for more direct bookings…

🤷‍♀️ Why direct bookings 🤷‍♂️

OTAs are great, but let’s face it, you lose on fees and guest information. This is why the push by vacation rental managers toward more direct bookings is so important. To help, Hostfully has launched 2 new resources for owners and managers to ultimately help them improve direct bookings, and revenue.

📰 New white paper titled Direct Bookings: More Revenue and Information for Vacation Rental Managers.

While the ROI calculator will help you better understand 🤔 the amount of OTA fees you currently pay and potential revenue savings 💸, the white paper will get into greater detail on the data and tactics needed to boost your direct bookings 💪.

Of course, having a beautifully designed out-of-the-box direct bookings site ready in minutes doesn’t hurt either 😍.
