One Powerful, Free System
Futurestay is a web-based system that helps you automate renting out your home to vacation or short-stay travelers worldwide. Here’s what you need to know:
- Single System: No installs, separate add-ons to “integrate” or complicated setup process. Futurestay is a single system that provides you with a website, online booking and credit card acceptance, guest management and connectivity to listing portals.
- Instant Setup: You can signup for Futurestay right now, online. No credit card information is necessary. Your website will be created instantly and you can begin managing guests and connecting to portals within minutes.
- No Out of Pocket Cost: Creating a website, linking it to your domain name, managing guests and syncing your calendar to unlimited portals is 100% free. Futurestay charges travelers a 5-10% service fee when they book directly through your website. You pay only a standard 3% credit card fee. Bookings that happen outside of your website, such as in person or on other websites don’t incur any charges from Futurestay!
Create a Beautiful Website Instantly
Futurestay allows you to create a beautiful website with one click. Once you’ve entered your property information such as nightly cost, location and room type, Futurestay dynamically builds a one of a kind website. All you have to do is choose a ThemePlate as a starting point and the rest is automatic.
Once your website is complete, you can move it to any domain name you own at no cost. You’ll also be able to customize it to your heart’s content; change photos, add unlimited pages and most importantly; add Tiles to show off your best features!
Tiles: Instant Information, Unlimited Customization
From maps to local attractions or even spotlighting one of your own properties, Tiles make your website even better at commanding guest bookings. Tiles are intelligent content blocks that can contain information about your property, local area or even you. You can add unlimited Tiles, including blank slates which can hold free text, iFrames or HTML.
Also Works with Existing Websites
Already have a beautiful website but want to automate bookings, manamgement and listings? No problem. Futurestay plugs into any existing website, instantly empowering it to run your rental. You’ll be able to take bookings via Futurestay directly through your existing site and have full access to manage and list your property.
If you’ve created your website with Wix, Futurestay is available directly in the App Market. If you’ve had your website custom built or created it elsewhere, Futurestay can be plugged in directly just by copying in one line of HTML.

Accept Credit Cards Today
Futurestay allows you to accept credit cards and online bookings directly through your website instantly, no credit check or merchant account. The moment your Futurestay powered website goes live, you can take bookings from travelers all over the world.
Once you link your bank account and complete a one-step verification that you’re a real person, any payments you’ve received will be auto-deposited in your bank account before or during each travelers stay.
Your guest will pay a 5-10% service fee when booking (depending on your monthly transaction volume), less than on popular listing sites like Homeaway and AirBnb. You will pay only a standard 3% credit card processing fee.
Automated Guest Management
With Futurestay, nearly every interaction that happens between your property and your guests can be automated.
Online bookings happen according to your rules, including holiday/seasonal pricing, discounts and stay restrictions. Balance payments are automatically collected on the correct date and settled into your bank account. Receipts, reminders and check-in information are automatically sent to guests for each stay. Even cancellations and refunds only take a click.
What’s even better is that every key piece of intel is instantly delivered via mobile and/or email… and kept up to date on your website & every property listing site you’ve linked to Futurestay. Now you’re connected.
Syncs Calendars with Your Listing Sites
Keeping your calendar up to date on popular listing sites like HomeAway and AirBnb has many benefits, besides avoiding double booking. It boosts your position in search results of many popular listing sites, as well as making your property look active and in demand.
Futurestay syncs your calendar with nearly every popular listing site that you might have a profile on, including HomeAway, AirBnb, Booking.com, Stays, Flipkey, VRBO, 9Flats, FEWO Direkt (and many other from US, UK and Asia).
Lists Your Properties Everywhere
Futurestay was founded on the belief that every rental should be connected to every traveler.
Futurestay can automatically list your property on its premium partner network of sites including Booking.com, without you lifting a finger. You’ll be able to manage all of your listings directly via your Futurestay system, automating bookings and common management tasks. More partners are added every month; you’ll have access to each one!
Remember, guests search on every listing site, not just one. Increasing the demand for your property allows you to improve your nightly rate, as well as maximizing occupancy.
Mobile Website & Management
Every part of Futurestay is designed for your mobile lifestyle.
Travelers will love your property’s mobile website which allows bookings and requests on-the-go.
Your management system communicates with you seamlessly across desktop, tablet, mobile and even SMS message, keeping you in the loop no matter where you are.
