October 1, 2023 Host Tools Price Increase
Over the last six years, Host Tools has helped thousands of hosts manage their short-term rentals. We’ve spent the last few years adding features and functionality to Host Tools while working to keep it the easiest-to-use and most reliable PMS on the market.
Here are some of the many features we’ve added:
Mobile app for easy access to messaging, reservations, and calendars
Unified inbox for easy communication with all guests on all channels in one place
Multi-calendar for viewing all your listings across all channels all in one place
Availability synchronization (Airbnb, VRBO, Houfy, Booking.com, and others via iCal)
Powerful rule-base pricing tool for complete control over rates
Integration with many partners such as PriceLabs, Turno, Tidy, & more
Smart lock integration with support for all major smart lock brands & adding more regularly
Listing grouping for easier listing management
Turnover calendar for cleaners, managers, or maintenance
Multi-user management for managers, owners, and cleaners
Automated messaging features (multi-language support, day-of-the-week specific messages, reservation change messages, SMS/email support, e-mails to direct bookings, reviews, image attachments & more.)
ChatGPT integration for impressively useful and accurate quick responses to guests
Image attachments to messages across all channels
Multi-tier room linking for instant availability syncing between listings that are listed separately as rooms or together as a whole house.
As Host Tools’ features set have grown, so has the complexity of the software and the costs associated with running it. We’ve hired a team to help add features and fix issues quickly and to help with product maintenance. We have tried not to increase prices for our original users but it has gotten to a point where it is unsustainable.
As a result of all these new features and added expenses, we have increased the price for all new users but also need to increase the prices for existing users.
We will be increasing the prices for all existing users on October 1, 2023.
Please check out this pricing page for a look at our current prices. There is a slider on the page that can be used to easily show the total price per month depending on how many listings you have.
If you have paid for an annual subscription you are already paid through your year, and when that year ends you will be moved to the new pricing plan.
We are thrilled about how far Host Tools has come and we hope you have been delighted with all of our new features. We also hope you will agree that the time Host Tools saves you is well worth the additional monthly cost.
