Frequently Asked Questions

How much does ClearlyBooked cost?
Nothing! ClearlyBooked is completely free and does not require a credit card to sign up. We do charge for add-ons, but you're never obligated to buy them.
How does ClearlyBooked keep my information safe?

For starters, we don't store sensitive account information from other sites like account numbers, usernames or passwords. - EVER!

While we need you to enter your username, password and in some cases security questions for each company you connect with, we don't store any of them. We simply use it to make a call to that company so we can get a token back. We don't want to give away all of our secrets, but the token itself has several other features to help keep your information safe. The token has a limited life and periodically expires. When it does we will prompt you to re-enter your security credentials so we can get a new token.

Any requests you make to our site and any calls we make to another company for your information is always done over SSL/TLS, so the information is encrypted. Even the page you're on now uses a secure SSL/TLS connection. You can verify via your browser by finding the lock icon that's typically displayed by the url.

The password you create on ClearlyBooked when you sign-up is immediately "hashed" and the original password is never stored. Hashing is a technical term which basically means the password is encrypted/converted to a bunch of different characters that cannot be decrypted.

What companies can I connect to through ClearlyBooked?

ClearlyBooked allows you to connect to listing sites and financial institutions so you can collect all your rental transactions in a single spot. Currently we support the following companies:

Listing Sites/Booking Software
  • Airbnb
  • HomeAway
  • VRBO
  • VacationRentals.com
Financial Institutions

There's too many to list - we support thousands. However, we only support institutions in the US at this time.

How many rental units can I sign up?
As many as you'd like! We don't put any restrictions on the number of rentals you can sign up.
Does ClearlyBooked make sense for me if I only have one rental?
Absolutely! There are multiple reasons to use ClearlyBooked even if you only have one rental property:
  • Centralize booking information from across sites like Airbnb, HomeAway and VRBO
  • See a single view of your financial and booking information
  • See how you stack up across years
  • Get alerts when your bookings are behind schedule so you can respond
  • Stay on top of your cash flow to avoid insufficent funds
  • Automatically categorize the income and expenses for your rental properties
  • Dramatically simplify tax time

...and the biggest reason - It's pretty darn cool!

How many companies can I connect to my rental?
As many as you'd like! We don't put any restrictions on the number of companies you connect to.
