Activate Booklee DIRECT

You can accept bookings directly on the Booklee page by completing the setup steps and adding the Stripe payment provider. Launching direct bookings has never been this easy.

2. Manage rates and fees

Take advantage of a flexible price management system

Select currency and set nightly rates

Add unlimited seasonal rates

Add fees to for extra services

Determine the base rate and week rates

Set the default price per night. You can also set a different nightly rate depending on the day of the week. This allows you to differentiate prices on workdays and weekends.

Set up seasonal rates

Set different rates for specific date periods. Your season rates will override the default rate for those periods. This allows setting different rates, for example, for the summer season or Christmas period.

Add extra fees

Hosts can add additional fees to the price of stay. For example, cleaning fees or fees for extra guests.

3. Control calendar

Booklee allows you to have complete control over your booking calendar

Sync calendar with your other booking channels

Manage upcoming and past reservations

Block dates based on your preferences

Set booking window

The booking window determines how far your guests can book your place in the future. Usually, hosts allow booking up to 6-12 months in advance as it is hard to set prices more than one year in advance.

Sync with external calendars

To decrease the risk of double booking, you can sync your Booklee calendar with other tools where clients can book your place (Airbnb,, Vrbo, or PMS providers).

Block internal dates

You can manually block dates in your Booklee calendar if you have property maintenance, are using the property for yourself, or simply may not feel like accepting guests on these dates.
