EZ Reserve

EZ Reserve

Here at Rentalo we have been hard at work the last few months developing a new tool designed to streamline the booking process through an integrated reservation, invoicing and payment system.

Are you tired of having to keep your reservations,  invoices and payments in a spreadsheet or a notepad?  Ever had a double booking and scrambled to apologized to a traveler because of it?  You are not alone, many property owners have run into these problems over the year and many continue to struggle with the booking process even today.

EZ Reserve is a very easy to use booking engine designed with vacation rental property owners in mind.  We set out to create a tool that didn’t require a steep learning curve, but rather be intuitive so owners can start using it within just a few minutes.  With Ez Reserve owners will be able to manage their reservations, invoices and payments online, as well as print out important reports that will facilitate their book keeping process.

Reservations can be created and managed so that owners can manage their vacation rental more efficiently.  The system will warn you so that you do not create a double booking.  Owners can also send a copy of their rental agreement to travelers and a copy of the reservation for the traveler’s records.  Once there is a reservation, and owner can then generate invoices for that reservation.

Invoices are very easy to create and will make your vacation rental business look more professional.  There is plenty of flexibility within the invoice creation process.  Create a customized greeting, include line items, add a personalized signature with your photo, and much more.  The invoicing interface will keep track of status of your invoices.  Managing your invoices is as simple as clicking a button.  You can resend, mark as paid, void, refund, etc, all from the same page.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of EZ Reserve is the fact that owners can accept online or offline payments.  You can link your Paypal account with EZ Reserve so that travelers can pay you directly via the invoices you create.  Alternatively, owners can specify which forms of “offline” payments are accepted, along with the instructions on how to send the payments.

Most property owners are hands on and prefer to be involved in the entire booking process.  EZ Reserve is a tool that will help property owners keep their information and payments organized and online, allowing them more time to better serve their travelers.

With an introductory price of only $65 a year, EZ Reserve is a tool definitely worth looking into for your vacation rental business.
