Add new property
To add a new property to your account, click on the Properties button on the platform, and then click on the “+” button located under Properties.
If you wish to create a new property, similar to an existing one, Premium and Premium Plus users have the ability to clone properties with their contents.
By clicking on the “Clone” button you are able to copy an already existing property.
Once you have clicked on the “Clone” button, a new window will appear in which you need to choose which details you wish to copy from the previous property:
- Basic property data
- Rooms configuration
- Amenities and extras
If you mark the “Prices” options, a new menu will appear, where you need to choose between these options of copying prices:
- Own prices – only your own “standard” prices will copy, all other sales channels will remain empty
- On all active contracts – both your standard and the prices for all sales channels that the previous property is connected to will be copied
- On all active contracts using rate plan settings – All prices from active channels will copy, once you apply all of the conditions form connected Rate plans
Once you mark all the desired fields, click on the ”Next” button, to cancel the copying process click on the “Close” button.
Once you have clicked on the “Next” button, a new window will appear. In this window you need to choose what will be the type of this new property:
- Create a new sibling
- Create new property
- Create a new child
If you are copying an Apartment Complex or a Villa, there will be one more option available:
- Choose specific properties
In this option, you will have all the existing Child properties shown.
Once you have chosen the desired option, click on the “Clone” button to finish the copying process. If you wish to cancel the copying process, click on the “Cancel” button, and if you wish to go back to a previous step, click on the “Previous” button.
Once you have clicked on the “Clone” button, a pop-up window will appear where you need to confirm the copying of this property. Click on the “OK” button.
Once the copying process is complete, your new property is ready for further changes of data if needed.
After you’ve clicked on the “+” button a pop-up window will appear, as shown in the picture below:
You need to fill in these fields with some general information about your property, such as:
- Active – check if you want your facility to be active right away or not;
If you check that the facility is active it does not mean you are automatically connected to sales channels. For more details on how to connect your property and make it visible on different sales channels, read here.
Tip: Check YES so you have one less step when connecting the property to sales channels.
- Property type – This is where you choose the type of property. Select one of the categories offered in the drop-down menu. If you wish to register only one apartment, one room or one holiday house, select the appropriate type of facility for that unit. If you wish to register a facility with two or more accommodation units, then you should select an Apartment Complex, Villa or Holiday House.
Tip: Always create an Apartment Complex first, even if you register only one apartment or villa inside the complex, because it will provide a more complete presentation on portals such as Booking.com or Expedia and it will offer a much better conversion rate as well as the final result!
Note: AirBnB doesn’t support room types like Holiday park, Resort, Hotel and Hostel. Atraveo and Edomizil don’t support room types like Holiday park, Resort, Hotel, Hostel and Room. If you want to connect your account with AirBnB, Atraveo or Edomizil, please choose some other room type.
- Code – you can create it yourself;
- Accommodation category – based on the categorization decision;

If your accommodation unit has a capacity of 3 people, and the same price for all 3 guests or the stay is charged per room, not per person, in the field Capacity main enter 3, in the field Capacity extra enter 0.
If your accommodation unit is charged per person, and has a basic price for 2 guests and an extra price for one more guest, in the field Capacity main enter 2, in the field Capacity extra enter 1.
If your accommodation unit has a capacity of 4 guests, and you’d like to set different prices depending on the number of guests you rent it to (2, 3, or 4 guests), in the field Capacity main, for this example, enter 2, in the field Capacity extra you should also enter 2.
