If you’re a Vrbo host and you’re reading this you’ve probably come across the following problem: In order to connect to Vrbo via API and sync rates and availability in real time, the host has to handle payments on her own. This means that whenever you have a booking, you have to be the merchant on record and process the credit transaction. This is a cumbersome process, needs a merchant account with a payment processor, and leaves you exposed to fraud and operational burdens. Well, not any more – Hosthub has the solution!
Hosthub syncs Vrbo rates and availability without the need to handle payments!
Hosthub has built a custom API connection to Vrbo that allows us to sync rates and availability between Vrbo and any other channel in real time and with top-level reliability, on par with the connection available to large property managers. Our connection retains the “Pay at Vrbo” option which means that Vrbo handles credit card processing and sends you the booking amount to your designated bank account, exactly like it works for hosts that are not connected vbia API. You can book a demo below to see it live in action. Also note the Hosthub can also sync Vrbo rates and availability even for hosts with less than 5 properties.
If you’re already a Hosthub user and listed on Vrbo, just ask our support via live chat to check if your account has switched to our Vrbo API. If you’re not a Hosthub customer yet, you can try us out for free for 14 days here.
