In the Vacation Rental industry, there are several ways to share prices. The Length Of Stay (LOS) pricing is one of them and the one we push for.
What is exactly the LOS pricing?
If we use LOS pricing, instead of sending a price per day and then matching discounts or rules with the channel, we send a calculated price for stay of 1, 2, 3, 28 nights, including all discounts, promotions, and rules that are in the BookingSync engine.
This is super flexible as the discounts or rules do not have to match what offers the channel, it's all calculated in BookingSync and sent.
Use of LOS pricing with Airbnb
Airbnb now offers the possibility to use LOS pricing to synchronize the prices for all properties connected with the official sync.
Thanks to our tight partnership, we got early access to this feature and it's already entirely implemented on our side. So YES, we are now, ready to move and migrate your properties to this new pricing.
The big advantage is that ALL RATE RULES in BookingSync will now be synchronized with Airbnb. No need anymore to indicate the weekly and monthly discount or the additional person fee in the Airbnb app, we take exactly what you have in the rates tab of your rental.
The downside is (yes, there is one) that Airbnb only allows us to send LOS pricing for 30 days. This means the travelers won't be able to book (or even find your property on Airbnb) for stays longer than 30 days.
The solution here is to use our midterm pricing tool in order to set your rates for stays longer than 30 nights. Please refer to this article for more information.
