What can Azur Villas do for me?
We operate the most cutting-edge booking and reservation system available on the market today. We are pleased to be able to offer its full capabilities not only to apartment, villa & gîte owners, but also to hotels, campsites, bed and breakfast accommodation...in short, any resource which can be booked.
It's perfect for the owners of holiday rental properties, because it handles all invoicing, payment reminders, availability, SMS messaging of bookings to your smart phone...and a whole lot more besides.
I have more than one rental property, can I list all of them?
Yes, you can list just one of your properties, or all of them. You can add more, or reduce the number you've listed at any time.
In my B&B, the rooms are let separately, can I manage them individually myself?
Yes, our system easily handles multi-room properties for businesses such as hotels, chalets, apartment blocks, bed and breakfast accommodation, gîte complexes & camp sites. Each room can have its own tariff, chargeable (or free) extras, availability, photos and description.
I mainly do rentals, but I also some sales, can I list those too?
Properties can either be bookings and reservations based, or for sale (real-estate) types. That is, those which do require booking functionality, and those which don't, such as property for sale. You simply have to select whether a property is for rent or for sale.
Is the system easy for customers to use?
Yes, our system is incredibly powerful, yet potential customers can search and browse for a suitable property very easily.
When they find a suitable property, they can view photos, description, more info, Google location map, QR code (scanned by a smartphone) and current availability all on one page. During the booking process, they can see the full cost of their booking, all on one page, without any navigation necessary.
Depending on how you configure your payment methods, your customers can pay deposits and final balances online via PayPal (and many other gateways), or by cheque/bank transfer if preferred. Both the owner and customer and owner receive full booking details
Can payment reminders be sent to my customers?
Yes, payment reminders can be configured to be sent out to customers automatically at a pre-defined number of days, weeks or months in advance of arrival.
Can I add a full description of my property?
Yes, you can add as much descriptive text as you like.
How many photos can I have on my property details?
The number of photos you can have is unlimited. However, we do reserve the right to impose a sensible limit.
Can my property be displayed on a location Map?
Yes, our system fully supports Google Maps. If you prefer not to have the location of your property displayed, that option is also available
Can I add chargeable extras, such as welcome packs, linen and towels and end of stay cleaning?
Yes, you can add as many extras as you wish, with different tariffs and tax rates.
Some systems offer texting of bookings to a mobile, can you do that?
Yes, we use the Clickatell SMS system. Once you've entered your mobile phone number, any bookings you receive will immediately be redirected to your mobile phone too. So, you never need lose a booking again!
