Comparing Free Listings & Paid Listings


At RENTalo, we make it easy for travelers to find the perfect place to stay when  looking to book a place for their vacation or business trips.

Our  destination-based inquiry service (also known as wanted ads) allow travelers to  quickly and efficiently broadcast inquiries to multiple property listings and  receive offers directly from owners that can meet their specific lodging  needs.
We also make it easy for property owners to communicate with  potential guests via our new messaging system; a multi-lingual, chat-based  messaging tool.  This friendly interface allows owners to send and receive messages and offers to  travelers who are inquiring on their property or destination.
We also created the free listing subscription to allow new prospect clients to  communicate with our travelers and assess the quality of Rentalo's leads prior  to paying for a subscription. Via Rentalo's new messaging platform, free listing  owners can send unlimited offers and messages, and get replies and booking  requests from travelers.
Below is a table explaining the differences between free  listings and paid listings.
