What is RentalBot?
RentalBot is a Directory of Vacation Rentals you can rent direct from the owner. RentalBot is also a global service provider to other vacation rental websites to host their owners' Availability Calendars. RentalBot also offers an unparalleled array of Property Management features to help owners keep up with who's rented what week, for how much, and when their payments are due.

I thought you guys were just linking to other websites.
Rentalbot has been updated to host listing pages, plus with a featured listing account you have the option of uploading up to twelve images of your property for maximum marketing exposure of your Vacation Rental property. In addition, the calendar and inquiry form makes RentalBot one of the best listing services for the price.

What's included with free Basic Listings?
You get a basic Availability Calendar that you can embed as an inline image on any other website in the world! Just paste HTML similar to the following wherever you'd like your calendar to appear:
<IMG SRC="http://www.rentalbot.com/servlet/com.rentalbot.image.ImageServlet/?property_id=YourRentalBotPropertyID"/>

How can I improve my ranking in RentalBot's search results?
You can upgrade your free Basic Listing to a Featured Listing for $35/year. Featured Listings show up before Basic Listings in search results and include a thumbnail photo & availability calendar.

I'm already a Featured Listing. Is there a way to improve my ranking within that?
No. RentalBot ranks search results according to what matches the renter's search the best. It's important that renters get the best matches first, in order to get the most value out of RentalBot. The only exception is that Featured Listings will always be displayed first, ahead of Basic Listings. The two groups will be ranked separately: renters first see all matching Featured Rentals ranked according to best match, followed by all Basic Listings ranked according to best match.

What's RentalBot "Property Management"?
Our Property Management features help you keep up with who's rented what week, for how much, what the payment breakdown is (deposit, balance, etc.), whether they've paid or not, and when the payments are due. RentalBot can also automatically send you reminders when payments are due. RentalBot can also track all inquiries, regardless of source. You can also enter in contact data for all of your renters and send them all email by filling out just one form; emails are delivered individually. You can even choose to send emails to just renters, just inquirers, future renters only, past renters only, or everyone. RentalBot Property Management costs $79/year and includes a Featured Listing.
