Dtravel v2 is now live! To list your properties on Dtravel, you’ll need a Hostaway account — which is a property management system (PMS) — as well as a MetaMask wallet.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to get started with Hostaway, how to set up a MetaMask wallet and how to deploy your listings on Dtravel. But first, some background on how Dtravel interacts with PMS software.

What is a PMS

A PMS is software that assists short-term rental hosts and vacation rental property managers in managing their listings, bookings, payments and/or communication with guests. By having the ability to organize operations across several properties and platforms in a single place, hosts can access convenient tools to efficiently take care of administrative tasks, saving both time and operational expenses.

Why Dtravel is Using PMS Integrations

Dtravel v2 fuses the best of direct booking sites and online travel agencies. A key component of this strategy is integrating a PMS to enable seamless cross-platform functionality and management.

Host listings connected to a supported PMS will allow hosts to manage not only their Dtravel bookings, but also their bookings across other platforms. With the combined approach of Dtravel v2, hosts using a supported PMS can efficiently register with Dtravel and experience the benefits of a direct booking site without the time, effort and expenses traditionally associated with creating a direct booking site.

Hostaway, Dtravel’s First PMS Partner

As one of the most-used PMS software providers on the market today, we partnered with Hostaway for several reasons. The simplicity of use of the software, paired with its extensive functionality capabilities — including calendar synchronization, dynamic pricing, unified inbox, message automation and much more — optimizes the administrative process when it comes to managing a short-term rental business.

Hostaway is also integrated with over 100 apps that help short-term rental hosts and property managers operate their businesses efficiently and effectively. This wide selection of tools is perfect for helping hosts scale their businesses via automation, which complements Dtravel’s automated on-chain payments.
