Helpful Tips and Tools for Property Managers

TripAdvisor Rentals has a number of great features tailored to property managers to make managing listings as efficient as possible:

Update all your listings in one go
Instead of updating each property individually, you can now make mass changes with just a few clicks using the Bulk Edit tool.
Simply go to your
Listings page, where you can either select All Listings or use the filters to narrow down your search:
  • By Online/Offline
  • By Number of bedrooms
  • Or by searching for the name, property ID or location in the search bar
Once you decide which listings you’d like to edit, you can get started with your changes. Take a look at more detailed instructions in our blog on
Bulk Edit tool.  

Manage your availability with a channel manager
TripAdvisor Rentals works with multiple channel managers to help you manage your availability more efficiently and to avoid double bookings while working across several platforms.
You’ll find a list of available partners
here. If your preferred channel manager isn’t on the list, simply email for further assistance.
You can also check out our
helpful guides to some of the individual channel managers we work with.
