Vacation rentals have always been a relatively small part of the accommodation industry. The diverse system landscape and the semi-professional ownership have made selling and marketing vacation rentals fairly complicated. A lack of standardisation has made it extremely complicated to integrate vacation rentals with marketing channels, let alone automating them.

Challenges of vacation rentals
Managing a large collection of vacation rentals or holiday homes can be a cumbersome excersise due to the immature nature of many many management systems. Global standards in the accommodation industry are often not adhered to by vacation rental owners, operators or their management system. Marketing vacation rentals requires a single standardised platform to aggregate all the different systems and their vacation rentals.
Vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes
LODGEA follows international standards of the hospitality industry and provides a standardised way of managing the data for vacational rentals of all shapes and sizes. It also allows the connectivity of various property management systems to aggregate and market the inventory. You can connect as many channel managers or property management systems as you wish. Vacation rentals can then be used in unified marketing campaigns as well as the Blockchain-based booking on your LODGEA site.
Mix your accommodations together
The wide variety of different accommodation types supported by LODGEA allows you to mix vacation rentals with any other type of accommodation such as hotels or resorts. Many hotels and resorts have also started to introduce various innovative forms of short-term rentals. All these can be easily mixed together in LODGEA and you are not bound to any specific type of accommodation.
